News 9 Courier Scam Pitching ‘Home Based Business’ Kelly Richards SCAM steals $39.95 per month but says it only cost $9.99
So here’s my problem with legit articles lke this one I just saw on the front page of Yahoo called Top Work at Home Job, which lists legit jobs you can do from home. I’m all for that because I’m an at-home writer, web designer, webmaster, affiliate marketer and all of the above.
There are legit ways to make money online. See my blog at over on blogger to see how I’ve made around $44k each year for the past couple of years online.
Anyway, on that Yahoo page, there’s one of those scam ads for “News 9 Courier” claiming “Kelly Richards” of my hometown (they use IP script to figure out where we live to make it seem all personal) makes thousands per month with some fake “Home Business” kit they say is only 9 bucks or so, but in the fine print of the page on HBB that they lead you to, you can see from their terms and conditions that it’s actually $39 or more.
Why do so many legit sites accept these ads? I know it’s the ad marketplace, but surely they’ve gotta know how they’re making money off lies.
I’ve blocked these get rich quick scheme ads from showing on my Google Adsense-run ads across my personal websites — but sites I write for still run a lot of the Pulse 360 scam ads.
Anyway, check out the hidden terms and conditions below. This is making me want to create a giant website showing people legit ways to make money online — it takes hard work and a lot of favor from God, not this get rich quick crap and lies:
