You receive an email from a trusted friend, relative, colleague who tells you about a great work from home using the internet. They don’t believe in scams. You trust them. You click through. Access Income Institute says they have a free kit that tells you how to make $250-$500 a day with no experience, no degree and no waiting.The page tells you they have been mentioned on CNN, MSNBC and other trusted news sources. There are a slew of comments with pictures of people holding checks, updates with status reports of having earned more than $500 in a day. This is the dream we’ve all been waiting for—less work for more pay.
Sound too good to be true? It is. The free kit can, apparently, cost you between $47 and $97 depending on the scam page you are sent to. You are given a tremendous amount of info that you must do then and there, as attempting to back up a page hits the firewall immediately, according to complaint reports. Then, you should receive confirmation that you must reply to for complete access to the information that can make you as much as $10,000 a month, working from home with no prior experience or degree.
The confirmation email never comes. Access to Access Income Institute is impossible. Busy Signals. And, according to reports, contact lists are hacked while you are on their site. Then the company send email to your contact list offering this great work from home deal. Now you are the trusted ally who offers access to the too-good-to-be-true work from home scam.
