Google Cash Kit Scam – ScottsMoneyBlog.com Scott Hunter Tricks You.

by El Plumber (admin) on April 26, 2009

jasongetsrich1 Google Cash Kit Scam   ScottsMoneyBlog.com Scott Hunter Tricks You.

Scotts Money Blog has our old friend the work at home part time for Google Salesman back at it again.  These Google Cash Kit and Google Biz Kit fake work from home for Google blogs just keep coming and coming. Every time I read a news site or go to Facebook, I trip over another couple trying to convince you that for only $1 or $1.95, you too can make money online “posting links for Google”. Why do I think these earn money online blogs and the sites they link to are scams in my opinion? Read on!

The main reason is, you should never pay for any earn from home jobs and the Google Adsense program is 100% fee free.  Any site that tries to tell you otherwise is likely trying to scam you.

Scotts Money Blog and the Google Cash Kit Scam

This time, lets take a trip down Scotts Money Blog and spot the warning signs.

  • Scott is from your town originally!  Or at least your internet provider’s town that is.  The blog uses an IP tracker to see where you are connecting from, then fills in your town name or one near you to make you think that Scott is a neighbor, making you more likely to fall for it.
  • You can make some money “working” for Google by posting ads on your site using Adsense.  BUT, they do not pay out in 48 hours like the blog suggests, but in 30-60 days.  And then typically only pennies per click.  You need 5000-20000 clicks a month depending on your niche to clear $1000, which means 100,000-400,000 visitors to your site each month.  Good luck.
  • The sites details and images are virtually identical to hundreds of other fake blogs out there.  Check out some of our other posts for more details.
  • Fake comments with no dates associated with them at the bottom of the blog, no method to add comments.
  • Feedburner images for this single page blog with 23,823 RSS subscribers.  Yeah right.
  • RSS Subscribe buttons take you to the pitch page.

Ok, got all those?  Now click on a Google Cash Kit or Internet Biz Kit link and go to the pitch page.  Here is where bells should really start going off.  Welcome back to our old friend “securecartcenter.com”

  • Blinking buttons and a countdown timer to nothing.
  • Random logos litter the page with no citations.  CNBC?  ABC?  CNN?  And what is the giant Smily Face at the end?  Just kidding?
  • On the Easy Google Cash Kit Profit site, there is NO indiciation you will be charged $75+ after 7 days.
  • On the My Internet Payday site, there is at least some fine print at the bottom warning you:  “At the end of your 7 day trial period you will be charged $78.64 per month for access to the My Internet Payday training program.”

What makes these sites scams in my opinion?  Well, all of the above!  The My Internet Payday has the most information about how they are going to nail your credit card after 7 days.  In my opinion, no legimitate make money online program would need such trickery.  Just come out and say it right where you enter your card, not after the page fold buried in some fine print.

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.  Unlike the Google Biz Kits, Experian clearly states that it’s 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?

What can you do to stop these guys from taking in more people? Warn everyone about it!
  1. Click Here to Share this on Facebook! Hit “Post to Profile” to warn your friends.
  2. Use the “Share” links below to Digg or Twitter or Stumble or Reddit or Email or whatever service you use to share this so that other people might see it before they get scammed too!

Lol, the old subscription fee scams.

Read the small print, people. It’s there for a reason.

It’s a shame people still get suckered in by these, but it’s easily done. Nothing is as attractive as “free” or a low price, and of course the sellers never make it easy to cancel.

I only take trials and freebies w/subscription if it’s (a) by PayPal (easily cancelled) or (b) Cancellable on site (like, say, Amazon Prime).

And on another note – why doesn’t Google clamp down on these Google Kit things?

Adrian May 6, 2009 at 1:16 pm

Thank you for this information.

Anonymous May 7, 2009 at 3:08 pm

I thought it was just annoying spam…Popped up at almost every website I went to. I only noticed it when the info changed. At first it said his name was Josh Parker. Then it changed to Scott Hunter…Had all the same info and pictures…Just a different name

Same as above May 7, 2009 at 3:47 pm

And another thing: The comments at the bottom are fake! It says “Comments disabled due to spam”…Bullcrap

9 May 2009.
Thanks for saving me.
I Googled “Scott Hunter Google” just to check if it was a scam…and what d’ya know. It’s a scam. The “Only 36 spots left” on the sign up screen was the BIG hint to me this is fake!
I hope others hit this web page before handing over their CR card number.

Ya all of the Google Cash Kits are fake. This one site called James Makes Money has a black kid about 18 years old saying he made a million dollars. He boosts a Lambo and a Farrari on South Beach….are u kidding me. You only make cents from sales on your page. Somebody set that up to make it appeal to the black audience. Click on my name and check out other scams that you should watch out for. Find the blog that says Rank, Scams…..

Lee June 7, 2009 at 8:30 pm

Yeah great post mate! I was browsing the net tonight and looking for internet entrepreneur sites to teach how to make money and came across MANY MANY MANY sites that are just as you described. It pissed me off so i went looking for the google cash kit scam in the google search and then found out all about it.

I’ve been doing the internet forever it seems, but these guys are pretty good scamming people… Thanks for bringing this to the light! The truth is they are CON ARTIST! straight up, just call them what they are!

Keep up the good work!

CatScratch June 14, 2009 at 5:38 pm

Why doesn’t a reputable company (Google) do something about these scam artists using their good name to scam people? You would think Google would at least post a warning on their website to warn people of this scam. By them not doing anything about this scam it as if they condone people using the Google name to take advantage of people.

David Peat June 19, 2009 at 9:44 pm

You guys are wrong, these guys are making millions and driving lambos on South Beach from the Google Cash Kit! With the money they scam from poor naive people! Anything that says you will make money instantly or within the next 42 hours, ya right, ought to be your first clue.

Kevin June 20, 2009 at 11:23 pm

Yeah these guys are huge scammers. They take open source and totaly monopolize on it. Google adsense is a free enterprise and people are paying these guys for that free information. Never pay a penny to these guys, especially for shipping! They will take a lot more from you.

Jeffrey June 21, 2009 at 1:04 am

Ha ha. that is true David. They are scamming the hell out of people. they are the only ones making thousands in 42 hours and millions in a year.

When is someone in our government going to step up to the plate and regulate the internet? Bernie Madoff was punished for a ponzi scheme on a grand scale. Meanwhile, millions of scumbags are comitting the same offense, but just because they only get a few bucks out of people nothing is done. Doesn’t it dawn on anyone that these scammers are hitting a MUCH larger demographic? Most of Bernie Madoff’s victims were wealthy, not that it is okay to scam wealthy people, but only a small percentage og the population is wealthy. Do the math.

El Plumber (admin) July 1, 2009 at 7:32 pm

Christine, note that Madoff ran his ponzi scheme for well over 20 years with no one noticing. Until someone dies or loses an inordinate amount of money, the government is slow to respond.

Eventually they will catch up with these people, it’s just going to take years and the money will have disappeared by then.

Kevin July 8, 2009 at 6:28 pm

I hope the government gets on these guys…. it is becoming a large problem and need to be dealt with.

justin jones July 9, 2009 at 3:40 pm

Thanxxx I almost fell 4 it..i notic3 every Video the Comments where Disabled ,They Knew People where Gonna tell How Fake it is.They are the Only ones Making Money From it

kathryn July 28, 2009 at 6:21 pm

he almost had me convinced… does anyone out there know of a decent, truly legitimate home based business?

John July 29, 2009 at 12:48 am

The TRULY legitimate home based businesses will not sell you a “fly by night” type of scenario. Rather, they will promote hard work in order to earn your profits. As will ALL business and successful ones I might add… with hard work and dedication comes rewards.

You can make money blogging by simply finding a particular niche that you enjoy researching or talking about in your blog, and then promoting products through affiliate sales… or by advertisements… thats two of MANY possibilities! Just remember real business takes work, hard work. Don’t believe the hype that someone will show you “how to make 6 digits” within a few months with your blog. Remember, these people will NEVER tell you all of their secrets and the ones who share the information really will not be telling you anything new or things you don’t already know. They will keep all of “their” secrets they promise to give you and promote the “basics” as their secrets… to keep you buying their products or clicking their banners. Just stick to your common sense and work hard. There is nothing wrong with that! :)

Just a side note… again when I refer to “these people”, Im talking about the scoundrels who seek to make money by teaching you false methods on how they make their money online. I can say this from experience that, when I took a particular persons online e-Course I contacted him and told him how great it was and what I had started doing. Well, turned out he visited my site and began taking words from my page and ideas that I was using for particular sections and applying them to his site in order to steal anyone who might traffic my site and bring them to his. These people are all about domination in their niches, and are quite honestly ruthless. When it boils down to it, they only care for themselves and the elites they hang with. They fear the newcomer and their potential, to discredit them and their work or worse… for them losing traffic to their site. So work hard and be legitimate at what you do.

Be SURE you always research who these people interview as “awesome” mega-buck wealthy entrepreneurs . I’ve always found that many of these people change their appearances physically in their clothing and all to match the times and seem as if they are making millions. DON’T fall into that trap.

Like I said stick to your common sense and don’t worry about these hacks. You’ll be just fine.
Much encouragement to you as you seek a home-based business! =)

Kevin October 12, 2009 at 1:24 pm

I made 400$ in 72 hours using the Google kit. Within a week I made 4,000 dollars. Kevin is Great. I mean, Jason, oh is it Scott? Anyway, I made big bucks using his google kit and you can too. For just 50 cents I will E-mail all that I know. Use pay pal to pay me.

-You will be charge $100.00 for every month until you contact me to cancel. I might not be home so keep trying..

Ellen January 3, 2010 at 10:22 pm

ATTENTION! The Google scam has now morphed. It is now called Internet Payday Work From Home Kit. I got this as a pop-up window while I was looking at my comics, and it is EXACTLY the same as the previous Google scam. Those S.O.B.s got me for $200 before I canceled (and canceled my credit card.) I really wish somebody would stop them. I wanted to fly to Phoenix and strangle them myself. They are now calling themselves “Internet Rich Gurus.” What a bunch of malarkey . . . . . . I already sent them an e-mail at support@incomemembership.com – y’all should flood them with e-mails, too. Let them know what’s on your mind RE: internet rip-offs.

Dean April 17, 2010 at 9:31 pm

Just wanted to say…your doing a great job at informing people about these scams, but…you advertise these scams on your OWN website (through google ads). Whats with that? seems like you care enough about others not falling for these scams…but you would happily get paid to advertise them yourself. forgive me if your ‘work from home’ advert links are not scams, but looks just as fishy!

El Plumber (admin) April 17, 2010 at 10:30 pm

S’ok Dean. I understand what you are saying. Note that not every “earn money online” offer is a scam. If they lie or steal or hide charges, then it is. Google does provide these ads based on our content (we don’t decide what gets shown) and they have taken great steps to clean up and kick out any of these scam from the ads they provide over the past year and thus we let Google do the work for us.

jim May 2, 2010 at 1:27 pm

uhm….how can u let these ppl scam money from you??? you just signed over your credit card without even searching it on google? LOL wow if you are that naive i think you deserve to lose the 200$ you got bested, and not even by the best.

El Plumber (admin) May 2, 2010 at 6:47 pm
jim May 2, 2010 at 10:05 pm

i didnt bash them….i was almost tricked by this scam too….but there is a sucker born every minute…these google scam people are enforcing natural selection….there has to be some sort of kudos to the engineers of this…they found a niche and worked it

k.m.sazzad hossain February 27, 2011 at 10:20 am
