It seems that every scam artist and trickster out there has been targeting work at home income seekers as fertile ground for their products under the pretext that achieving a worthwhile income from home is easy. These low-life individuals can be categorized as follows: those who seek to defraud their customers; those who are incompetent; and those who greatly exaggerate or misrepresent their products to the public. In the past 5 years, these rogues have largely moved from finding gullible people via mail shots to the internet. However, some people are now becoming very streetwise about the purchase of products in the home business area.A few years ago, all a victim of these exploiters might have done is left a comment in a forum or blog, which might typically have read as follows: “I bought product X and tried it out for two months. It did not work at all in comparison with what the seller claimed on his sales page. I tried to get a refund but the seller just ignored my emails and phone calls. After six months, I gave up trying. …John Smith ” As these individuals are now using the internet to sell their information products to the public, a savvy purchaser should always first look and see if there is a guarantee, as well as the record of the person or company providing it. A search on Google, by entering a name and pressing find, can reveal whether a person or company has a presence on the internet, as well as whether or not they have an entry in a publication like Ripoff Report. A potential buyer having done the necessary homework thoroughly on a work at home product, should refuse to do business with anyone if there is any doubt about the person or company’s identity, location or integrity.In my own quest to add an income stream working from home, I sought and got the help of a close friend over a period of a month or so. We complied lists of products on offer using the internet as the source, and did all the necessary checks and cross-checks We came to the conclusion that it was difficult to determine in advance whether someone would honor a guarantee given with a product and, consequently, our final list only included products sold via Clickbank. The latter guarantee to offer a refund on any product sold via their marketplace provided the applicant applies within 56 days of the original purchase. Whilst the length of the guarantee stated can be quite skimpy in some particular instances, it generally ensures an orderly and fair marketplace that is unlikely to be frequented by wrongdoers. Clickbank’s marketplace is the biggest assembly of digital (downloadable) products on the internet.After initially considering hundreds of different products on offer, my friend and I finally, after a month of toil, got the list down to just three serious offers. At this point, we each gave the remaining products under consideration a score out of a 100. A product called Six Figure Yearly won the race based on the overall highest score. The convincing nature of the promises made on the sales page for Six Figure Yearly, as well as the fact that this program was being sold with Clickbank’s guarantee, did have a bearing on the scoring.I have been employing the strategies outlined in Six Figure Yearly this past two months in the market with great success to date.The lesson to be learned here is this: in today’s information age, all the checks need to be carried out by the potential buyer of a work from home information product in order the sort out the legitimate offers from the cons, which predominate in today’s marketplace.
