Google Money Tree, Earn Google Cash, and Google Kits – Facebook Part Time Job Scams

by El Plumber (admin) on January 5, 2009

scamad1 Google Money Tree, Earn Google Cash, and Google Kits   Facebook Part Time Job Scams

If you’ve spent anytime on Facebook lately, you’ve seen these ads for the wonderful part time jobs they’re trying to fill over at peoplemakingmoney.net, moniestory.com, KevinHoeffer.com, Paulgetspaid.com makecashmonies.com, and emillionaireinstitute.com.  Saw one today for NicksGreen.com They all lead to a similar looking site eventually.  That should be the first indication it’s a scam.

Facebook Ads for $50-$90/hr Part Time Jobs With Google Cash Kits

Paid advertising for work at home $88 an hour part time jobs?  Like every poor sap working full time for $10 an hour or even $20 an hour wouldn’t jump at the chance to make 4 times their current salary working from home?  That should be the second indication something is wrong. If a make money online offer sounds too good to be true or requires you to pay a fee, be wary!

I’ve been hitting Facebook a lot lately, getting back in touch with old friends, doing research on using Facebook to make money by working from home, and in between the ads of the buff guy shaving his chest and the Fear No Man Martial Arts ads, these earn money quick with Google ads keep popping up over and over:

Looks great huh!  Work From Home! Make Money Online! Get rich quick! $50-$100 an hour!  Just enough to catch people’s interest but not too much to be totally outside of the realm of possibility ($300-1000 an hour!)

Why are these scams in my opinion? Read on!

Click on one of these ads and you’re brought to one of two sites:

http://peoplemakingmoney.net/jobs2/?p=1

http://peoplemakingmoney.net/jobs3/?p=1

This is a technique called “Split Testing” where you show different landing pages to different people in order to determine which is most effective.

The guys picture never changes on any of these sites, but his name does.  Sometimes he’s Robert McCabe, sometimes he’s Stephen Williamson, sometimes he’s Ryan Craig, sometimes he’s Kevin Hoeffer, sometimes he’s Kevin Larsen, sometimes he’s Tom Williamson, sometimes he’s Nick Peters, now today he’s Paul Steinbach.  The names change every couple of days to avoid people searching the internet to see if it’s a scam or not.

There are six “comments” on this “blog”, but if you look closly, there is no comment form where anyone could have actually commented.   Scam Alert #3!

Google Money Tree, Earn Google Cash Kits or Google Kits Scam

Sometimes it’s for Google Kits, sometimes it’s for Google Cash, sometimes it’s for Google Money Tree.  All claim to let you make tons of money working from home with almost no effort. If you search for those names, they all of seem to be old tired Clickbank type eBooks on how to make money putting ads for other Clickbank junk on Google Adwords from 4-6 years ago.

For absolutely totally FREE, you can have your own Google Kit for only $3.88 Shipping!  Yesterday it was only $1 shipping and brought you to a different landing page after the initial “squeeze page”, but I’m guessing the guy learned something from his split testing and modified his offer.

Ok, enter in your details and you’re now asked for your credit card, which will be charged $3.88 shipping for something.  Sounds like a deal huh!   How could you possibly go wrong for $3.88?  Read the fine print off to the side buried in the middle of a paragraph:

To get your free kit, just enter the information on the right, and I’ll get your kit shipped out fast. Also… for a limited time, not only will you get my entire GOOGLE MONEY TREE KIT, but you will also get a seven day trial to my private, members only website. People pay almost ninety bucks per month for access to this site, but during this seven day trial period, you can have unlimited, back stage private access, without any charge whatsoever. You can stay a member at the discounted price of seventy two dollars and twenty one cents per month for life. Of course, if your goals change, you can always call and cancel your subscription at any time. It really is the easiest thing you’ll ever do. If you can follow simple instructions, and will devote just a little time every day… you can be living the life of YOUR DREAMS TOO. I AM!

That’s my bold type in the middle.  That’s right folks, after 7 days they’re going to whack your credit card for $72.21 every month for access to some marketing website!  Good luck finding a phone number to call and cancel your “subscription”, I strongly suspect one doesn’t exist (certainly isn’t on this page).  And since you won’t notice until they’ve charged your card and they don’t offer refunds, you’ve just been taken!

If you got taken by Google Cash or Google Money Tree or Google Kits, your best bet it to go straight to your credit card company and dispute the charges but be prepared for the credit card company to side with these sites, since they are currently following the letter of the law by disclosing the monthly reoccurring charges.  They certainly aren’t following the spirit of the law by hiding it in the fine print.

Don’t ever give any site your credit card that you don’t trust.  At the very least, make sure they have a legitimate business address and are selling something that isn’t too good to be true.  You’ll get screwed. Any real legit work at home free money making offer won’t ask for your credit card.

Note to Facebook:  Get your advertiser quality together or you’re going to seriously tarnish your ad image to your users.  I’m sure these people are paying you quite a lot per click, seeing as how they stand to make $70+ a month of each poor unsuspecting person who types in their card info.  The number of ads Facebook shows are limited to 50 or so it seems.  Just assign a intern to scan each one for scams and save yourself a ton of “Face” by shutting down the scammers!

What Should I Do If I Get Taken?

  1. Don’t feel bad!  Seems like hundreds if not thousands of people have been taken in by these sort of “negative option” offers that trick you by not clearly disclosing you are signing up for monthly charges.  You were tricked, it happens to the best of us.
  2. Call the number provided on the website that took you in IMMEDIATELY.  Have more than one witness listen when you call and/or record the conversation if possible.  Unfortunately many people have complained that they can never get anyone to talk to when they call.  Finding that number is up to you, they seem to keep changing.
  3. Call/write your credit card company and dispute the charges.
  4. Monitor your credit accounts!  You just gave some shady characters your name, address, phone number, credit card and secret 3 digit card number.   Click here to sign up for Experian ID Protection monitoring FREE for 30 days.  Unlike the Google Biz Kits, Experian is a trusted real company with a real business address and contact information, has a clean history with the BBB, and clearly states that it’s actually free for 30 days, then only $9.95 a month to monitor your credit accounts for fraud and identity theft.  I’d suggest signing up for at least the free month to make sure no one tries to change your address or open a new card using your current cards details.

I Didn’t Get Taken, But What Can I Do To Help?

It’s going to take the Feds months or years to track down and stop these people, and even if they do, once they take it, you’ll never see the money they took from you again.  The only thing to do is warn everyone you can not to fall for it.

Here is what you can do to help:

  1.  Google Money Tree, Earn Google Cash, and Google Kits   Facebook Part Time Job Scams Click Here to Share this on Facebook! Hit “Post to Profile” to warn you friends and loved ones.
  2. Use the “Share This” link below to Digg or Twitter or Stumble or Reddit or whatever service you use to share this so that other people might see it before they get scammed too!
  3. File a Complaint to the ICCC (Internet Crime Complaint Center) at ic3.gov.

Woah! I was totally going to try this, for only 3 bucks it seemed like a good deal.

Teach me to read all the fine print.

solar January 6, 2009 at 8:21 pm

there is a unsubscribe section in the email googlekits sends u but u still need to keep an eye on your debit / credit card incase they do charge u

Webhost4Christ January 23, 2009 at 11:02 am

i found another facebook ad that links to an almost identical site, with a different URL and different photo, but it seems to be the same kind of scam (possibly the same person with a different fake identity)
http://www.bethsmoney.com/22/index.php?t202id=42142&t202kw=m5

Karim February 10, 2009 at 7:07 am

I had unauthorized on line payment from Google Tree of $72.21 !!
Don’t trust them.!!! Everybody should know about Google Tree. They are bunch of thiefs. They should be arrested!! Seriously!! Why our Justis doesn’t stop them. They steal people money no?

Sana February 10, 2009 at 7:10 am

The same thing happened to me!!

admin February 10, 2009 at 8:01 am

That’s the problem Karim, they’re “technically” not breaking the law right now. My understanding is that current law says as long as you disclose any reoccurring charges on the page and close to where you actually buy the product, it’s allowed. I think there is certainly a case that they need to disclose all charges in a more obvious manner.

However, think of all the credit card thieves, bank password phishers, and hackers trying to steal tens of thousands or more over the internet and this type of scam is certainly very low down on the feds priority list.

Hazel February 12, 2009 at 2:09 pm

I’ve also been had by google moneytree.
How do you stop the charges

Muhammad February 12, 2009 at 4:07 pm

thanks alot to all the people who shared all this
i actually registered my name with it but i dont why i didnt gave them my credit card info
from last 2 days they are calling me about 8 times a day but i was in doubt so I didnt pick up their phone.
Thanks alot guys
u guys saved me.

Diggitydave February 15, 2009 at 7:10 pm

I did the same thing, filled out the info but closed the page when it asked for my credit card, Then the next few days they called me every 5 – 10 minutes.
I answered finally and told them to stop calling me, she laughed when I said it was a scam, but no more calls :D
The number they use is 201-917-7305

Don Vito February 18, 2009 at 12:15 am

I fell into this trap as well but managed a full refund after some arm twisting from the original half refund offer. I called 1-866-870-4257 and had to come across like a la cosa nostra chieftain by saying “that’s not the answer I wanna hear” and “my credit card co. will stop payment” . They give you a return auth. # which needs to be put on the outside of the envelope and in a letter stating why you want to cancel along with the CD-ROM. I hope this helps other victims out there. The bottom line is don’t let these mofos rip you off!!!

Anonymous February 18, 2009 at 7:44 pm

I thought it was too good to be true, so I decided to Google before I spent just a few bucks for the information. I’m glad I did.

Cindy February 20, 2009 at 3:09 am

Almost fell for this aswell, but decided to dig a little deeper. Thanks for your blog Im sure youve saved many!

admin February 20, 2009 at 11:45 am

That’s great to hear Cindy. I fear that we’ve only warned a fraction of the people that get scammed by this type of thing. Since they’re technically not breaking any current laws, I suspect we’ll be seeing these great “offers” of “free” things for some time. Just warn your friends and family to read the fine print!

Don February 20, 2009 at 6:46 pm

wow , I fell as far as filling out my info, then had weird feeling , a creditcard app didnt appear after filled it out , it just game me a option page to ask questions, Ohhhh I await the calls lol I have some words for them , Im so sorry to hear that some have been scammed in such cruel way wheen we are in an economic state as we are now , preying on people who are in need , I hope they get whats coming , remember karma

Brian February 21, 2009 at 12:18 pm

I’m the same as many of your other repliers. It sounded like a scam to me, so I decided to dig a little deeper. I’m glad I did. Thank you. You saved me also from the hassle.

Candace February 21, 2009 at 7:37 pm

Im soo glad that i found this site. THANK YOU!!
I was going to buy it too but i stoped at the credit card part!
I got scamed already once by liberty league! i payed over $1500 and spend alot of my time into it.. and never received a penny back!!!

KC February 22, 2009 at 3:25 pm

The addage has never changed… “If it sounds too good to be true… It probably is.” (I would even take out the word, “probably”… and change it to “always”.)

Smitty February 23, 2009 at 4:15 pm

Everytime you see one of these adds, click on it. They get charged on a pay-per-click basis, and if enough people keep clicking and not ordering anything, then eventually they will begin to lose money

JonJon February 25, 2009 at 9:05 pm

I agree with Smitty and I scrolled down to type the very thing you already had. CLICK EVERY LINK! they get charged anywhere from a few cents to $1.00+ per click on those adds. We know we are not going to buy it so lets run up bill on the scammers instead. Then maybe they will give up and take down their site. It took me awhile to find this post. I searched a lot for info and even checked out the BBB. No one really has any info on them. I would love to find or start a web site that warns people of web scams and educates ppl so no one else falls for these scams or others like them.

Janine March 2, 2009 at 6:09 pm

I get annoyed with all the bank password phishing and I have complained to yahoo once and I get his account suspened once,

I’m fed up of the scams and I wish they could go away

ava March 9, 2009 at 8:40 pm

Almost signed up as well. To those who can’t stop the debit, call the credit card company and tell them you lost your card, they will send you and new one (new number) with your old balance but they (scammers) won’t be able to debit your account anymore!

Darren Harper March 12, 2009 at 10:24 am

I clicked on one of the Facebook links, not because I was interested, but I thought I recognised the photo!!

I did a bit of digging and voila …..

http://www.echo-news.co.uk/search/3704607.Buy_my_house___and_get_my_Lamborghini_too/

The guy in the picture in Rick Hill (NOT Paul Steinbach) and he lives in Hockley, Essex, UK – not London. He also has never worked in the “City” – making his money from his own ‘online Pharmacy’ company!!

More proof ….. if ever it were needed – THIS IS A COMPLETE CON!!!

smarty March 16, 2009 at 11:50 am

I had a GF fall for this scam, she warned me about it, and sent me the link to this site. I’ve reported the ad to Facebook as “misleading” as that is the only category they had. I’ve also posted this link on my profile @ facebook, and encourage everyone to do so. With 175 million people on facebook it’s a great way to get the message out not only to your friends, but to Google as well as Facebook…neither entity wants the negative “press” from it’s consumers!

sathya March 18, 2009 at 10:47 am

This is a very good message and to be conveyed to all…. who get cheated by this kind of scams

darvon March 20, 2009 at 10:51 am

How can these scumbags get away with using the “Google” name in their filthy little scams? You would think Google could cut them off at the knees instead of posting for them!

Bob March 20, 2009 at 4:49 pm

Oh my god! I almost fell for it. Thanks guys.
So, are you all saying there is just no money to be made apart from getting the 72 and odd bucks stolen from your account?

James March 24, 2009 at 4:23 pm

Found another one on facebook to watch out for it’s http://canadakits.com/

James March 24, 2009 at 4:26 pm

I also found something very interesting that all should try. The original site I found was http://richgetsrich.com/bs/?t202id=13493&t202kw=gc1-5976291 do me a favor and check out the base site and tell me what you see… http://richgetsrich.com/

Jonathan Slade March 26, 2009 at 4:47 pm

I only came across this article because I was doing some research on Paul Steinbach, who turns out doesn’t exist. I was so close to paying $2 for what I thought was a great deal. Are these all total scams or is that such a thing as google paying you for posting links?
Facebook need to sort out adverts like these. I was trying to promote my totally legitimate business and Facebook took it off for supposedly breaking their rules. I have heard that their adverts do not generate many sales though.
Thanks for the great advice here!!!

Myca March 28, 2009 at 12:18 am

Thanks. I saw the ad, thought it was too good to be true, so I looked it up.

Aimee March 28, 2009 at 5:22 pm

I too was scammed after seeing the numerous ads off facebook telling me for only £1.32 I could get a CD Rom telling me ‘all the secrets behind closed doors’ of getting rich like Paul Steinbach! They soon debited my credit card with £33.39 including a conversion fee, but used a different name. The conversion fee made me realise that it must have been them. I had no idea I was setting up a monthly subscription with them when I gave my card details, otherwise I obviously wouldn’t have done it. I have now disputed the payment with my bank for a refund and have cancelled my card to stop them from taking anymore money from me. I also sent them an e-mail asking them to cancel the subscription from their end but just received an automated response, so no idea whether it has actually worked.
I will never give out my card details to any site like this again – I have learnt my lesson once and for all now!

tom c April 6, 2009 at 1:09 pm

i am having a hard time finding out if this is the same company that runs google internet service that we all use ? if it is, shame on them and i will start using msn or yahoo
i almost went for it , and the fine print caught my attention at the last second. know i get random phone calls from a unknow n caller but the number comes back at 800notes.com as monettree.

Litty leprechaun April 7, 2009 at 3:56 pm

I signed up for Google cash and I realized it was a scam after i gave my credit card info. I called them at 1-866-951-1406 and cancelled my subscription. They said that i would still receive a cd in the mail. I was still sceptical that they would still charge me the monthly fee so i got a new card with a new card number. The next day i got 3 phone calls from (201)643-7922. It is a very good idea to get a new card with card #
Thanks AVA!!!!

admin April 7, 2009 at 6:19 pm

Tom, these “Google Cash” guys are absolutely 100% not affiliated with Google in any way, shape, or form. They just use the “Google” name to sound legit, and Google seems too big to notice and go after them.

Julie April 11, 2009 at 9:06 pm

Tom C, these guys are in no way working for Google, at least they are honest enough to mention it in tiny prints at the bottom of their pages. But Google should really look into this because these scammers are using their name…it’s illegal!

Heh, I almost got caught as well in this and I’m glad I’ve found this article! Thanks to the author, you saved a lot of us! ;)

Rupali April 13, 2009 at 6:15 am

I’ would like to earn mony by doing work from home.
Could any one can guide me, what is Googal Adworld and how we can earn by using this?

Thanks

zoy April 14, 2009 at 8:25 am

Ok I just signed up yesterday with this crap and didnt know i was signing up for them to charge me on a monthly basis. So after i read the terms and conditions and starting investigating i just called my credit card people today and reported it lost or stolen. so all they got me for was 2 dollars and they know where they can shove it…….

”The trademarks in this image are owned by their respective owners who do not endorse this product.

That should be the dead give away right there. If google will have nothing to do with them, you shouldnt either. I was just looking at one scam site http://www.joshmadecash.com/?s=VC_Pop8
which claims of making 9k or more a month. He even claimed to be from the area in which I live. I clicked on the link they provided to see what it might say or provide on that page and its so cheezy. Gives you a timer for their ”limited time” (5 minute timer) offer with their cheezy slogans and pictures. I also noted where the comments where made, there was no form to comment. And comments had been disabled. As if anyone other than themselfs made those comments. So I wanted to see if this guy really lived near me and was legit (had a good feeling he wasnt) and I came across your site which proved my belief in its scam. If all else fails, always read the fine print. Hope those of you who fell victim to these scum were able to get your money back.

Kevin April 15, 2009 at 9:51 am

The only suggestion I might make is to get a debit card separate from your regular use credit and/ or bank card and only put a very small amount of money on it. They can’t debit your card for $27 if there isn’t $27 on it. Can they? Thanks for everyone’s input and keep up the good work.

admin April 15, 2009 at 10:01 am

Be careful with the debit cards though, most banks are nice enough to “allow” you to overdraft your debit card, then charge you a $39 overdraft fee for the privilege!

i am a thirteen year old and have been saving up to buy a moped and clicked on it and gave my rebate card number i got from my new cell phone and it still has a lot of money on there and i’m concerned on how to cancel it my mom said she didn’t trust it but if i did i could do it well i guess my mom was right……if anyone can help me please do so!!

Goodbyegoogle April 17, 2009 at 4:07 am

I was lucky as I was just about to input my CC details and read the fine print about additional costs and monthly costs. The website that first led me to this offer swore black and blue that the only cost would be $2.95 for shipping. (Liars!)

Cecile Allen April 17, 2009 at 12:50 pm

First time I saw their website (www.jacobgetgreens.info/), I thought it’s a good deal. But when they ask my credit card just to pay $1.95 for shipping.
I changed my mind quickly! I didn’t fill up their form…

Think B4 U Click April 17, 2009 at 1:21 pm

To think that I almost fell for it!! What an id***!! OMG…. I am so glad I did a little research before I got scammed!!

Rtruismo April 18, 2009 at 11:28 am

Cancel your credit Card and say it was lost and get a new number. the best and easy way to stop charges. I had a feeling this was scam after i put my info in. Im a sucker for easy money!

Tony Hebert April 18, 2009 at 9:07 pm

There should be a law that requires all online vendors to include a pop up disclosure window on the final transaction verification “click”.

When the customer clicks the final “OK” button to complete the transaction a window would pop up that would indicate to the customer in 50 words or less what charges will be posted to his or her credit / debit card in the next 6 months. A disclosure box if you will.

The customer could then click “OK” to continue or “Cancel” to Terminate the transaction.

If it takes more than 50 words to describe the charges then too bad. You aren’t smart enough to do business on the web. Or, you are trying to scam someone.

It could be like the “are you sure you want to delete this file” dummy box that pops up before we delete something. Everyone write a letter to your representative and tell them to pass legislation to protect consumers from scams like this.

I had a feeling that this was a scam when I first saw it and when I clicked on the link to read into it I was sure it was a scam. Not because I am smart but because a very long time ago before the internet I got scammed. It didn’t cost me much. Just $5.00 and my dignity. But we can’t let this happen.

Anyway, good job on the website. It didn’t take much to find information on this scam. You can only scam most people once and even that is one time too many.

IC Light April 23, 2009 at 1:12 pm

I just fell for this too.
I knew in my gut it sounded like bullsh*t, but I went along with it any ways.

I called my bank, and shut down my debit card.
Without my debit card, my account is now safe.
It cost me $5 to order a new card, but it could have been a lot worse.

Don’t trust anything you see like this on the internet.
If it was legitimate, you’d already know about it.

Nancy April 25, 2009 at 7:37 am

I fell for for it…but I was skeptical while filling out the information…so I used a gift card/credit card that only had about $3 left on it…and they will never get the $72 out of a gift card…Whew!

Carole Morin April 29, 2009 at 11:04 pm

I sent the $3.00 to get the kit and just got a call from a guy names Devon that lasted over 1 hour. He told me it was in “interview” to see if I was admissible to be tutored by them. After asking me a zillion questions including my credit card balances, etc. He told me that his director would call me back tomorrow. He is the one that makes the final decision. At the very end, he told me about the “tuition” that I might have to pay, depending what kind of tutoring I would like. It started from $3,000 through $15,000 and, of course, for people like me (like totally broke) there was their “Fresh Start Program”. He never discussed what I was going to do but he tell me that his company was getting paid by Google (I asked “what’s in it for you?”. Now, he wants my husband to share in the Director’s call tomorrow. I also got this from Facebook as “Google Money System”. Fortunately, I paid with a Virtual Credit Card that has about a $3.00 balance on it. So I don’t really care about the monthly charges. Has anyone ever gotten this far? I’m from Canada BTW. I won’t follow through but he did talk a good game. Told me I could make (with $3 to $5K tuition fee) $45,000 a year. With $13 to $15K, I could make $150,000. My revenue would depend on the amount of money I put in… I can’t stand it, can anyone tell me what’s coming next? What does the “Director” tell people. I won’t answer the call because I’m afread I’ll get taken. Help please.

Carole Morin April 29, 2009 at 11:07 pm

Sorry about the typos. I should have read this before posting it.

Minnie April 30, 2009 at 11:52 am

I just tried to sign up at the “Joshmadecash.com” but the website kept saying my card was declined even though I know there is money in there, all in all I tried 3 different credit and debit cards but they all said the same thing, my question is will I be safe now because of the fact that the initial payment was never made ?? I am so glad I found this site thanks everyone, answer appreciated ASAP :)

admin April 30, 2009 at 12:10 pm

Minnie, it’s hard to say. I don’t know the legitimacy of the company behind the site you entered your credit card information into. JoshMadeCash.com seems to point to different Google Cash Kit offer sites depending on the day/hour. It could be they had a real problem with their card authorization server (which works to your benefit), or it could be that they do that in order to get you to enter in more cards so they can quadruple charge you later.

Honestly, I would suggest calling your card companies and reporting those cards lost so they can’t charge you on all of them, then sign up for the 30 day Free Experian ID Theft watch service to make sure no one tries to open any new fraudulent accounts using the multiple account info you just gave them.

Minnie April 30, 2009 at 12:41 pm

Thanks Admin, really appreciate the quick response I will get on to that now, and well done for all you are doing to stop these scammers or at least help people who have been naive enough to respond to their scams. (like me)

I suggest all of you who have been almost or have been victimized go to: http://www.ic3.gov and file a complaint with the FBI. These people need to be behind bars for internet fraud. They are inticing people through their fraudulant websites of people, even family pictures, holding up their fake Google checks and telling a bogus story. If you research it and check out their different websites you will see pictures of the same people, using different names, claiming they live in a diferent state or city and changing their story slightly. They fraudulantly appeal to your emotions then they start trying to scam your money. Many times they are causing irrepairable damage to people’s finances.
Please, everyone go to the FBI website above and file a complaint. These are some of the scum of our society. People who prey on innocent people, especially during hard ecomic times.

No kidding! It seemed awfully coincidental that this guy supposedly lives in the same town as me. I’ve also never seen a rich 24 year old looking so middle-aged.

People keep saying that the program is by google when it is not. They are using Google’s name just like a lot of companies. I do not agree with the so called Google Cash Program Scams. On my website I expose Traffic Coleman as the scammer he is too. If you want to really make money online visit http://sponsoredgooglelinks.com. It has a lot of info on how to do so with affiliate links and with your own site with no fees to start.

Your welcome Earn Money Online Scammer! You’ll notice that I removed the link to your site that is heavily promoting these negative option google money scams so you won’t get any hits or link love from us. But keep trying. And you should probably put your affairs in order, as the FTC and the ICCC will be catching up with you eventually.

El Plumber (admin) May 25, 2009 at 10:01 am

Oh Aaron, I hope you come back and actually read the article above. Don’t give these people your debit card!

Thanks for the very informative article on google scams

I will get the word and add these names to my ever growing list of scams and scammers

If you want to keep the pressure on, then you can also file a complaint with the UK Advertising Standard Agency (www.asa.org.uk) who should (eventually) make them remove the adverts, at least in the UK.

Though they say that for “complex investigations” they have a target response date of 140 days which is over six months. Astounding… Maybe if enough people complain then they will speed up a little bit.

Hey, I’m not trying to discredit you as I have read similar reports on ripoffreport.com. But this site kind of leaves me stoking my chin.

http://www.easy-home-business.org/index.php

It’s an org site and it asks for a one time fee.

But it makes the same claim as the other sites:

For instance, if you work an hour a day you could earn up to or more than $349 a day, that’s $2,443 per week, $9,772 a month, or $117,264 a year!

They have a list of company logoes at the top of the screen but claim no affiliation with them, but no disclaimer about ‘Earn Cash With Google’ not affiliated with Google. So it reads like a scam but still it’s on an org site.

It’s profit oriented on a apparent profit free site! What’s up with that?!!! Never saw that one.

El Plumber (admin) July 26, 2009 at 10:36 am

Scott, there is no requirement that a .org be a non-profit. It’s just that most non-profits use the .org domain suffix. It just stands for Organization as something different than pure commercial (.com) use. Anyone can register one for any purpose.

Typically is cost more to register a .org, so you won’t see as many people using them for throw away domains like most of the scammers do. They know they’re going to get blacklisted from Google, their web host, and their credit card processor so they tend move these domains around frequently.

Scott Brooks July 27, 2009 at 2:49 am

It boggles my mind. I guess with this recession in full swing there are people desperate to make money. I knew professional people who were like that. Like swimming with the sharks.

How can the FTC allow something like this?

I know of 2 complaints sites that people could research online scam. Just do a search on complaints and look for urls with complaints in the string.

Thanks for the info.

I just wanted to say I stumbled on one of the sites while surfing for pictures, and I am pretty tech savvy. So to say the least I was curious as to what exactly they meant by posting links to make money. So I just googled Kevin Cash Tree and came across this site. Good to know that somebody is out there exposing these con artists for what they really are. Thank you Plumber.

I’ve been knew about it thats why i didnot use my card with them,I smelled something fisy.

Maciel January 17, 2010 at 1:30 am

Whou! I think I should be worried. I went to this web site and I actually ordered the package in order to work online. Everything sounds too good to be true. This is the first time I ever order something of this kind. I did give them my debit card number as well as my address and name. This was so I could receive the kit. I received a phone call no later than 24 hours after I made my payment and had agreed to their terms and conditions. The terms and conditions they had in this web site weren’t so bad at all. According to them If I change my mind and decide this is not the job for me then I can send it back and they will return my money back. The guy that called me is supposely my mentor. His name is David something. He called to confirm my address, name and phone number. We have a phone appointment in about three days. By this day according to him I will already have my kit and told me to go over it and watch some dvds that come with it. He also told me to answer five questions I will be asked in the kit before our appointment day.
I am very hopeful. I really hope this isn’t one of those many fake offers as you mentioned in this website. I will let you know what happens.

If you get hooked by this scam or any other this is what you need to do. First call the bank and have them cancel that card you used. Then call the police and make a report, call your bank give them the report number. Your bank can then investigate and get your money back. Beaware that this process takes about 60 days and involves some effort on your part but you can recover most if not all of your money. Hope this helps
