Beware: Cash Grabs and Scams
The first thing to be on the look-out for when assessing whether a tool is worth your time and money is whether it’s just a cash-grab or a scam. You need to be very vigilant here as the unfortunate reality is that there are a lot of these scams out there – especially online.
These scams include everything from fad diets that don’t work and that may well actually make you seriously ill, to eBooks that don’t provide any real value.
How do you spot a scam versus a genuinely beneficial product? One particularly tell-tale sign to look out for is ‘over promising’. In other words, you need to assess whether the promises associated with the product you are looking at are realistic or if they are overhyped. For instance, a diet that promises you’ll lose several pounds a day is something to be extremely skeptical of as it’s likely either a huge exaggeration or very dangerous! Likewise, pills that promise to help you gain height or increase testosterone are generally just snake oil. Many fat burners are too!
Likewise, eBooks that make a lot of bold claims without providing any concrete examples of what you will learn should also be avoided. Ask yourself what this text offers that others don’t. What’s the USP? And how are they justifying the price tag?
More importantly, try looking at reviews online to see what others are saying. If there’s a genuinely groundbreaking product out there then you should be able to find reviews from other users that will be raving about it and recommending it. If you can’t find such things, then reconsider your purchase.
