As promised, I'm back with some updates on the auto-surf and money-making schemes Kelly and I told you about a few weeks back. When Kelly and I talked, we mentioned that one company was being investigated by authorities for being a possible Ponzi scheme. Well, that company now has fraud charges against it from the Federal Securities Exchange Commission.

You can read more here: 

In response, many auto-surfs have shut down and others are changing the way they run things to try to comply with the law. Regardless, of whether they are legal or illegal, auto- surfs are not a targeted source of advertising and, in this humble mama's opinion, you'd be wise to stay clear and avoid any potential headaches.

And realize that even Google doesn't allow you to put your websites with Adsense into such programs. As I'm sure you'll agree, Google KNOWS advertising and if they don't see it as a targeted venue for their advertisers, it's probably not worthwhile.

Here it is from the Google Adsense Program Terms:

"Prohibited Clicks and Impressions

Any method that artificially generates clicks or impressions is strictly prohibited. These prohibited methods include but are not limited to: repeated manual clicks or impressions, incentives to click or to generate impressions, using robots, automated click and impression generating tools, or other deceptive software. Please note that clicking on your own ads for any reason is prohibited, to avoid potential inflation of advertiser costs."

which you can find at:

You might also want to check the legal jargon under "Prohibited
Uses" at: 

BUT - outside of advertising, I did want to talk to you about money-making scams and get-rich-quick schemes on the Internet. Opening my eyes to the whole auto-surf industry showed me that there are many moms who follow scheme after scheme without regard to legality or financial feasibility. And worse yet, these schemes almost always need people to bring other people in on the scheme too.

We've created a whole section with 10 articles dedicated to educate moms on "Get Rich Quick Schemes". I hope you'll read through, not only to protect yourself, but to protect other members of the work at home mom community too:

And if I don't say it enough - If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Take care,

Alice Seba

Week at a Glance

A business opportunity chat can be a great place to start "interviewing" for a direct sales sponsor. At the same time you get your questions about the company answered, you can get a sense of the consultant's working style and your compatibility. Stop by this week and learn about starting a business with companies that sell scrapbooking supplies, travel, stuffed toys, wellness products, gourmet food, home entertaining products, and aromatherapy.
