Top 105 Make Money Online Scams to Avoid in 2019

online scams

 

In this post I’m going to briefly review the “best” scams out there available on the internet and still scamming people. There are really too many of them.

It’s simply impossible to review all of them. I need too much time and work hours for this to be done.

But there are some scams that really exceed the bounds of decency and I want you to know about them.

Many scams, such as Digital Altitude, Empower Network, Banners Broker, Commission Autopilot and many others were shut down either by FTC ( Federal Trade Commission) or by creators of those programs.

Unfortunately, many of them are still operating under new names and it’s extremely hard for newbies to avoid them.

They have beautiful websites and catching ads and those that are looking for legit ways to earn an income online fall for those scams.

 

 

Over the past 4 years I reviewed over 200 scams and still exposing them. BTW, I’m very generous in my verdicts.

I really don’t like calling someone’s program a scam. But sometimes I have to if I see that it breaks all principles of morality.

Very often I give it the lowest rating and try to avoid scam verdicts.

Programs that I’m going to briefly describe below are scams because of a huge number of complaints from people that have been scammed by them.

Some scams that will be listed here are no longer operating but I still list because people are still search for those scams via Google.

My goal is to help you avoid them and that’s why I will list them all here. I divide them into categories so you can identify them in an easy way.

 

online-survey

 

Online Survey Scams

There are legit programs called online surveys that you can join for free and get paid for completing simple online surveys.

You can get paid between $0,10 – $1 per survey. For some surveys you can even earn $20.

The number of such surveys is limited and that’s why your income is limited as well. All these online survey sites are free to join.

There are programs that try to sell you this info for $50 or even $97. You don’t have to.

The worst thing is that some scam programs try to convince people that they can make thousands of dollars by completing online surveys.

This is not true. Among such scams I can name a few of them, such as:

 

·Product name: Paid Surveys at Home

·Program owner: Patricia Johnson

·Website: paid-surveys-at-home.com

·Price: $68, after coupon $34

 

 

·Product name: Get Cash for surveys

traffic scam

 

Traffic scams

Traffic scams are programs that either claim to teach you secret methods to drive a ton of traffic and monetize it or suggest that you join traffic networks and earn money from it.

The issue with those sites is that most of the methods they talk about are useless and simply don’t work most of the time.

Or you have to invest a ton of money and results are not guaranteed. Anyway, here is the list of programs to avoid:

Affiliate marketing scams

Amazon business scams

Amazon Associate is an official program and anyone can join and benefit from it.

There are through some programs that promote Amazon idea in a wrong way trying to convince people that they can easily start making $500 a day from Amazon.

    What an informative post! some of these i can’t believe they are on your list because i have had an interaction with. I kind of wondered if they were Legit. The list is exhaustive and well laid out. 

    This is a must read for anyone trying to get into the the online business. I like that you have the alert on Amazon associate, this is great hidden scam to know. 

    The retirement age seems to be going up and I’m feeling kind of tired of the 9-5 grind, I’m sure most people are in the same shoes and the pleassure to start a business quickly makes it easy prey for the scams. This is a good post to read. it reminds to be shrewed on line and also do some research before jumping in! 

    • Rufat says:

      It’s good to know you haven’t fallen for any of them. I understand that most people’s incentive is to get rid of 9 to 5 job. But we have to be careful when doing our research to avoid those scams listed here and many others that I don’t know about.

  2. Poppa says:

    That’s a very impressive list Rufat, yet as you said, it’s only a fraction of the scams posted online.
    Nothing is more despicable to me than people that knowingly commit fraud for a dollar!
    Any site that requires you to pay them, so you can make money, should immediately set off your warning bells.
    Of course there are the free to join sites too … they’re free to join because they want your information to sell.
    It’s been my experience that money doesn’t come easy.  Money is the result of hard work and dedication.

    • Rufat says:

      The worst thing about scams is that many of them are free to join but even this doesn’t stop them from scamming people. They invite you to join free and then throw upsells until you pay them. Their offers are very often very attractive and promising and people fall for them only to realize later that they have been scammed. And like you say, they take your info, such as phone number, email and then give it to other scammers that start to send you other scam offers. It’ s an endless scamming process.

  3. Pentrental says:

    Great topic! Scams to avoid is always great advice. And 105 of them wow! You put lots of effort into the informative posting, kudos to you. Users should find this very helpful. Listing the prices was great as it gives you an instant comparison to the surrounding scams. Keep up the good work here! Unfortunately, people are still get scamming.

    • Rufat says:

      I hope with this post I will be able to save at least some people from these scams and help them get started the right way. It was not easy to gather all this info.
