(full list of all reviewed scams)
Ultimate Home Profits Review
You’re about to read the truth about Ultimate Home Profits. If you have paid for the program, you won’t like what you’re about to read. If you just came across the advertisement somewhere on the internet, take a minute or two to read this review before you proceed any further!
Ultimate Home Profits has been around for some time, and before this, the “owner” of the program was Michelle Robinson, which was a fake name as well. It was just a name used as spokesperson for a number of scam sites.
If you go to homecareerstarter.com, you’ll immediately notice the similarity of layout and the information required to navigate past the first page. Ultimate Home Profits and Home Career Starter are essentially the same scams packaged with different names.
Both Ultimate Home Profits and Home Career Starter programs are link-posting scams (more on this later). Why would the scam artists make the effort to create two programs using the identical scam? We call this the duplicate scam sites.
Judging from the age of the domain names, Ultimate Home Profits was probably the original scam. However, online reviewers constantly expose these scams by writing reviews like this, and sales from these scams naturally die down.
To get new people to buy into these scams, the scammers behind the program simply copy and paste then entire material to another new website, changing up minimal details such as the logo and names from time to time. This is why you see almost identical scam websites like Ultimate Home Profits and Home Career Starter here.
Big Red Flags Within Ultimate Home Profits
The first big red flag appears when you are required to fill in not only your name and email address, but your phone number as well to “check for availability”. In fact, the purpose of the details weren’t even to check for availability of online jobs.
This is simply a funnel to get you to provide your personal details before directing you to their promotional materials. Once you fill in your phone number, you will be called by numerous salespeople to pitch more scams to you.
However, for the sake of this review, I will use my old number that I’m no longer using to gain access to the page behind and give my readers an inside view.
Seems who’s in luck for a job! There are 9 positions available in my area.. or not. This is a randomly generated number to give a false impression to unsuspecting visitors. There weren’t any job matching done at all. This can be done easily using a script, don’t be fooled by this.
The rest of the page talks about how the owner of the system, Emily Hudson (previously Michelle Robinson, I wouldn’t be surprised if the name changes again in the near future) started earning double than what she was earning after she started to work online.
There are a lot of hypes in the content, but the alleged home based job essentially boils down to posting affiliate links from home. Emily claims that there are big companies out there desperate to get people to post their product links from home, so they can get more sales.
While it may sounds reasonable for beginners to affiliate marketing, this is simply bogus. The very basis of any business is to provide value, and something useful to the potential consumers before anyone will buy something from you.
Let’s consider what Ultimate Home Profits claim:
- You pay $97 to learn “wealth development certification program”, which is basically a program teaching you how to get affiliate links and post them
- You build a website to post the links
- People buy products from you. Profits!
Do you think it will work? Hell no! Your website won’t even appear in Google search results because a website full of affiliate links and don’t provide value will be regarded as spam by Google, and you won’t be ranked in search results at all.
Secondly, even if someone miraculously lands on your website, what do you think he/she will do? Buy the first product they see on your site? Of course not! There’s no reason to buy from your site at all! If they really want the product, wouldn’t it be easier to go to reputable websites like Amazon.com?
The Final, Big Fat Red Flag
Did you guys realize where this is heading? I was here to check for job availability, and I was told there are 9 positions available for my area.
So why do I end up paying to get a job? This just doesn’t make sense at all. when I was trying to navigate away from the webpage, a wild pop up appears!
Apparently I’m now qualified for FRIENDS AND FAMILY discount by trying to navigate away from the payment page. Whatever that means.
So I tried to navigate away again. To my surprise, there’s an even lower price point!
I decided to play around to see how low it can go. After 2 more attempts, I was able to bring the price down to only $47, a $50 discount from the original price.
This is a tactic thrown in to get me excited because I wasn’t sold. People tend to get excited when they are getting a discount, and think that they are getting a good deal. Unfortunately this isn’t one of the good deals, at all. So no thanks.
The truth is, no real company will ask you to pay to get a job. This is simply unethical and illogical. And if the program is really that valuable, why would they go so low just to make you buy it?
Should I Buy Ultimate Home Profits?
The answer is pretty clear, the final verdict is 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:

Have you encountered any scams before? Personally I’ve fallen for a few before coming across the legitimate one, so let us know in the comments below if you have any personal experience to share!
Thanks for this review. I will avoid this scam like the plague. It’s a real shame that people fall for scams like this. And that there are people that scam others of their hard earned cash. On the positive side, it’s great that there are people online like you that try to help others avoid the scams. Thanks again!
THERE IS ALWAYS 9 SPOTS LEFT LAST WEEK IT WAS
SARA TAYLOR NEXT WEEK THERE WILL BE ANOTHER NAME I HAD TO SHARE THIS PLEASE SAVE YOUR MONEY
Is it true that Donald Trump is promoting the Emily Hudson scam? I would think not and why doesn’t Trump sue them? This is obviously a misrepresentation and I would think grounds for a lawsuit. I ended up seeing this ad when I logged into Variety Magazine. I think they should be sued as well.
Hi Dario, of course not. On the internet, you’ll see a lot of misinformation – such as binary trading bots promoted by Warren Buffett, get-rich-quick miracle software by Bill Gates, or fake Facebook stay-at-home jobs by Mark Zuckerberg. These are all tactics used by scammers to generate hypes and trap their victims.
The thing is, these scams are dime a dozen. There are really just too many of them to catch, and often time they are hard to trace too.
About Variety Magazine, I’m not sure if they are related to the scam since I haven’t come across it before. It could be just an ad placed by affiliates promoting Emily Hudson scam.
I had a feeling this was a scam. I kept trying to navigate away and got the offer as low as 27.00 If something sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. 🙁
Hey Andrea, your hunch was correct. If a business opportunity keeps lowering its price for no good reason, it’s a sign for you to steer clear of it.
can we have a list of genuine free work from home sites then if you know any
You wouldn’t go wrong with Wealthy Affiliate.
If you want to kill some time and make some pocket money, you may try out online surveys.
You know Edward what gets me upset is the way these deals keep popping up all over the internet and they get money from people that really can’t afford it and their allowed to get by with it.I look at these because i was disabled a few years ago and the monthly payment I receive is hard to live on,and i really can’t afford to get scammed so I guess what I’m trying to say is thanks for your information about this scam.
Hi Steve, there’s no good way to stop these scams except for creating more awareness among the potential victims. Hopefully people who come across this review will shun the scam.
My favorite part was when she added up the pricing to a $2000 value, then offered it at a 75% discount for $99 (WTF? can’t do math?).
Then the next sentence discussed how hard that might be for people who aren’t earning money, so she proudly drops the price to a more affordable $97. Ha ha.
Thanks for a great expose. One question though, how do they get away with using Donald Trump, CNN logos etc in these scams? Surely the owners of those trademarks would be calling their lawyers?
Thanks for yor work
These kind of scams have a lot of duplicate websites (same content with different names), and every detail they use for the scams are fake (I.e owner names, testimonials, members etc).
It’s very difficult to track down the scammers, and even if they do, it won’t do much closing down a website. There are many more that sprouts every single day.
I really was surprised to read on this system that it is a scam. I almost believed I had found something good for me to do at home working , thank God my bank denied payment , than the next day I googled this system just to find out my instinct was right . Thanks for all the information I read . No one should have to pay for a job….
It’s indeed fortunate that the payment didn’t go through.
Yes no one should pay for a job. Scams like these are preying on completely inexperienced internet users.
I’ve been checking into Ultimate Home Profits and I’m glad I bumped into your review.
It’s amazing how many programs out there wrap themselves up in a pretty package only to teach you something you can learn for fee.
If you’ve fallen victim to this scam, by the time you realize it, you’ll out of luck.
Thanks for breaking down how Ultimate Home Profits is just another online scam to stay away from.
Hi Todd, glad that my review helped.

Hey there Edward , just by their name I can tell this is just another poor scam attempt.
Their slogan that says if you can spare 60 minutes a day is funny.You would need 10 years to make something noticeable.Therefore the method of bombarding an empty of content website with affiliate links is ridiculous and shows exactly how some people are behaving.
I think the owner believes in his genius system , the problem though is that is not working
Nice exposure , very bad product.
Hey Tasos, thanks for dropping by.
Some scams are indeed ridiculous, but it is possible to attain great progress in the online space within few months, given the proper trainings and hardwork. That’s what I’ve experienced with Wealthy Affiliate.
I like the details you have gone to in order to expose this site as a scam.
I have seen a number of scams similar to this and, luckily, did not fall for them.
One that I did fall for was a foreign exchange product. After 2 years I am still getting phone calls wanting me to join.
Hi Christine, once your number is in the database it’s hard to stop it completely. The phone number will be sold to other shady companies to solicit your money.
Great Post. Your post could have used one more read-through before you posted as I noticed at least one small problem “site” and should have been “sites”. Small matter but you want to be as professional as possible.
I think that you made your case for the fact that the site was a scam. DAN
Thanks for the heads up, corrected!
