(full list of all reviewed scams)
Earn at Home Club Review
The name of the “opportunity” is quite self-explanatory: well, it’s an “earn at home” business opportunity, and you need to pay to join the club, of course. Paying for legitimate trainings and business opportunities is fine, but unfortunately Earn at Home Club isn’t one of them. It’s just a classic online scam.
Usually unsuspecting internet users come across this “news article” before they are introduced to the sales page. On the surface, this page seems like a normal article or a blog post, but every link you click will lead you to the sales page.
This is just a sales page disguised as a news article. There’s no other article within that site.
If you click on any of the links, you are brought to the sales page. Before you continue, you are required to fill in some of your details.
Usually, other programs don’t ask for your telephone number to create an account. If you see something like this in the future, be alert. Don’t give away your telephone number so easily.
If you provide your telephone number, even if you don’t buy the product, you will be bombarded with calls from salespeople pitching you even more bogus online opportunities. I’ve been there, and it’s not fun at all. Don’t give away your phone number!
Even when I was writing this review, I was hesitant if I should sacrifice my old phone number. Just when I was trying to close the browser window, a pop up appears!
When I click “stay on page”, I was immediately brought to the second sales page, with the big green and red text: “CONGRATULATIONS! YOU QUALIFY!”
Ermm.. But I didn’t even fill up anything? Guess they really want my money pretty badly.
Did you realize how they employ the scarcity tactic to make you read through the sales material quickly? By announcing a very limited number of available spots coupled with a 5-minutes tickling countdown timer, an inexperienced user often feels compelled to skimp through the materials quickly, leaving them no time to analyze the product rationally.
I read through the rest of the sales page, and they did not even disclose any specific information about the business opportunity. All I was presented was some fake checks and Clickbank earnings, along with generic testimonials, and no other information were given about the Earn at Home Club.
One interesting note: Earn at Home Club sales page attempts to explain what they are not, instead of explaining how their business model works.
This is what separates a scam from a legitimate online business opportunity – the real one tells you how the online business works, and lets you try it out with no obligations, be it giving away telephone number or credit card number.
There is simply nothing to hide. If a user finds it useful, he/she will naturally pay for it, after trying the product for free. Not like it’s a physical product that requires shipping fees anyway.
The Payment Page – The Real Nightmare Begins
Let’s say you had no time to detect all the warning signs that appeared up to this point, and decided that it’s a good idea to join Earn at Home Club scam. If you click on any link, you will be brought to this payment page.
Since the price is only $4.97 and there is a money back guarantee, what can go wrong? Let me tell you this: it can go very, very wrong.
Again, you are presented with a fake countdown timer in the payment page. If you refresh the page, the timer restarts. But anyone who sees the timer wouldn’t have time to read the fine prints.
They will be so busy giving away their credit card information, and signing themselves up for a financial nightmare.
If you can’t read the fine prints, let me write it out here:
Enroll today and your card will be charged $4.97 to validate it. You will then be given a 3 day trial period from your authorization date at the end of this period. Unless you cancel your trial, the program’s full price of $77 will be charged and after 30 days $57 every month until cancelled. You will receive 10 day free access to Facebook training. After 10 days, if you don’t cancel we will charge you $29 per month until you cancel. You get 5 day free access to the success road academy training. After 5 days, if you don’t cancel your membership with the success road academy, we will charge you $6.99 per month until you cancel.
The total cost is a lot more hefty than the promised $4.97! Earn at Home Club scam signs you up for many other “business opportunities”, including Facebook training and success road academy which weren’t even mentioned at all in the sales page.
I wouldn’t keep my hopes high for their 90 days money back guarantee too. Why would you trust a company that wouldn’t disclose the true costs and its business model?
Should I Buy Earn at Home Club?
The answer should be obvious by now. The final verdict NO, THIS IS A SCAM!
Most victims fall prey to scams simply because they don’t know there are better alternatives out there.
If you are determined to make money online, you must use a legitimate program that will provide you proper trainings and help you build your own business. We have tried out many programs, and there is only one program we recommend to our readers:
