Things to avoid when you want to make money online

There are many legit ways to make money online however there are also people on the internet that want to make money by taking your money or using you.

13 kinds of scams that probably won't make you any money:

1. Sites that enter you in your contest in exchange for your personal info such as address and email. They either sell the information or use it to send you advertising. Most of the time you enter it and you don't win anything.

2. Some sites advertise that you can make $100+ a day doing online surveys. These are usually scams and most of the time they want to send you some kind of packet to get you started for $40.

3. Any sites that are too good to be true. You won't find free money online.

4. Sites that offer you a way to get rich quick. Getting rich takes time and work. The only people that get rich quick are the scammers if you believe them and buy their expensive guide.

5. Contrary to popular belief, most of the time, you do need experience to make money online. If you don't what you're doing, it's unlikely you'll make any cash.

6. Sites that want you to send in some money in exchange for the information. Most of the time the only information you get is information you can find publicly.

7. Don't trust guarantees that sound too good. Lots of guarantees will say that you will make a bunch of money but the only evidence you have is the author's testimonies.

8. Sites that say you don't have to do any work. There is no way that you can make money by just sitting there or else everyone would be making money.

9. Sites that try to sell some secret that no one knows yet. These secrets are either old, illegal, or non-working.

10. There are some legit sites that pay you to read emails or do surveys, but believe me, it doesn't pay well. Some of these sites that I've tried pay like 1/10 of a cent for one email or ad. You're lucky to make $1/day with these.

11. A lot programs called HYIPs(High Yield Investment Programs) are scams. I don't know why people don't realize that money doesn't come out of nowhere and even you do make a little money, it means someone else loses theirs.

12. Matrix scams that tell you to give $10 and make $1,000,000. These scams involve referring friends to pay you and having them refer other people to pay them. It sounds good that you make money for every person that signs under you but unless you are marketing master, you'll just be on the bottom of the pyramid.

13. Theres always some kind of catch if someone wants to give you free money online. Free money is not given out to strangers.
