Need to Make Money on the Internet – Call for Caution!

Posted on

Before anyone could achieve in this life, one will need to pass through the process of learning. This learning process can turn out to be either smooth or rough. I want to use this medium to tell people of my experience on the need to make money on-line.

My paid job is nothing to write home about because I hardly pay my house rent and settle the utility bills. We cannot feed well in the house not to talk of my children school fees which is begging to be paid.

I was totally dejected and frustrated! My wife had just recovered from a major surgical operation not long ago and this happening to me. I was just thinking of relocating to the suburb when I noticed a tiny advert in a local newspaper with title “Learn How to Make Money on the Internet”.

I sold the Pentium II computer which my children are using with some other items that I can sell and went to subscribe for the e-book. After reading the e-book, I discovered a lot of ways one can make money on the web. Some of the ways are:

Affiliate Marketing

Paid surveys

Pay per click ads

Selling goods and services and many others

I opted for pay per click ads and paid surveys because I felt they require little startup capital. I went to open a domiciliary account, get on-line connection, open Liberty Reserve account and also sign up with three survey sites as well as three pay per click sites. I started doing work on-line and my morale is so high and with one goal in mind, to make money on-line fast.

The pay per click sites I sign up for offered fantastic rewards which ranged from $0.01 to $5 per click but I was limited to get to a certain level before I can redeem my money except I upgrade! The paid survey sites either did not help matter as I also need to upgrade as well.

After much thought, I decided to forgo the paid survey and concentrate on the pay per click sites on which I thought I have generate about $2,678 with $139 to upgrade, €16,700 with €159 to upgrade and $16.79 with $45 to upgrade.

I decided to opt for the least which is $16.79 with $45 to upgrade due to the amount I have in my Liberty Reserve account so that I can reach the minimum payout point of $75 quickly and more clicks of about $25 per day. Then, I went to the upgrade page and selected Liberty Reserve as my upgrade method. I was directed to the checkout page on Liberty Reserve site and after filling in the required information and waiting to be up graded, a message came that the transaction was not successful. To my amazement, when I checked my Liberty Reserve account, my money has been wiped off. I have been scammed! All efforts to trace where my money went proved abortive. But at the end of it all, Liberty Reserve asked me to install a plug-in that will prevent future occurrence as the plug-in will indicate whether I am on a wrong site and that any time I want to transact with Liberty Reserve, I must not open any other website on the same browser.

Remember I told you my situation. I was completely down but I have to forge ahead because I am now more than desperate to make money on the web. This desperation lead me to being scammed again by another person I met at a public café who claimed he wanted to help me.

At the end of it all, I met a good and trustworthy person who put me through. Hurray! It has started to yield and I know very soon I will be a house hold name. We all have to start somewhere and somehow, it is rather unfortunate that many people learn the hard way what not to do on-line and as such give up early enough and never get to experience the joy of on-line success. I want to say here that you should not allow this to discourage you; making money on the web is quite interesting!
