    Your most powerful weapon against the unscrupulous is to educate yourself as much as you can, don't be impulsive in your purchases, forget 'quick money' and go for the long game. If you resolve to treat this just like a business and give it some respect you will never be tempted to go with the rubbish, the superficial, the inauthentic!

      Knowledge is only power if our knowledge is real and it's completely based in the truth. But, when we're mislead by scammers, and our head is full of lies, our knowledge is our worst enemy.

      Our own self centered fear based greed is what makes us believe the lies. Very smart people often believe the stupidest, most irrational and illogical things because they have no control over their own minds.

      If we all stop believing the lies, scammers will disappear.

      I don't believe any of the scammers. I see right through them. I can tell right from wrong and truth from lies. No one can mislead me.

    If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.

    If you're considering buying something and at any point you find yourself thinking "Wow this is going to be so easy," stop and take a breath.

    Search for reviews of said product, and research the tools or methods promoted in that product.

    If after 7 days you're still considering buying that product because "It still feels like this is going to be easy," make sure they have a solid refund program.

    Cheers.

    1. Go get a few credit cards, as many as you can get.
    2. Ask to raise the credit limit on any credit cards that you currently have.
    3. Browse the WSO section.
    4. Purchase every WSO you like.
    5. Take relentless action with massive passion.
    6. Believe in yourself.
    7. If you fail, it's your fault. You didn't believe, take action, or take the right kind of action.

    All you have to do is browse the WSO titles to see most are scams.

    Nobody has a PR10 backlink to sell you for $7.

    Don't buy from them, ever. All of us have to work together.

    If they made no money, eventually they would close up shop and go home.

    The good news from this is that if authorities can shut down these gangs, the number of scams online will drop off substantially - for a while at least. Of course, the type of scam the gangs use will still be around.

    I've got one technique that works really well..

    It sometimes defeats the purpose of being on a forum, but instead of looking for things, start to share ideas. As you share the ideas, people will come to you with their own thoughts and begin to share methods that can better what you're wanting to learn.

    Above anything, skip anything that seems too good to be true. I've had my days of get rich quick, and there are definitely methods but I'd have to say.. a program, course, etc. has not been the reason I became successful, rather the connections I gained.

    Buyer beware. But seriously, make sure to always do your own due dilligence before parting ways with your hard earned money. Read reviews (if they're legit) whenever possible. Does the offer or person offer a money back guarantee? If not, then why?

    And always go with your gut when in doubt.

    Education. Learn, learn, learn. Research, research, research.

    Just like any other industry, there are unfortunately some bad apples, read up honest reviews and learn the basics..
