Name: Paydays at Home
Owners: “Amy Sanders”
Price: $97 (and that’s before the high pressure phone calls)
The people that brought you such scams as Ultimate Home Profits are back with a new link posting scam, “Paydays at Home” (PAH). I first discovered this program while researching Secure Home Profits. This provides me with a unique opportunity to explain to you what a “duplicate scam site” really is. Read on!
To Begin With…
As I stated above, I first became aware of Paydays at Home when I was researching a program called “Secure Home Profits” (SHP). When I navigated to the SHP website I wasn’t terribly surprised to see that they changed the name to Paydays at Home.
Why wasn’t I surprised?
It’s simple. Both of these programs are just duplicates in a long line of link posting scams. Just take a look at the following pictures:
These pictures are from three different “programs.” As you can see, they are incredibly similar. The websites themselves are usually identical.
Question: Why would somebody go to the trouble of making multiple sites that are so similar?
People like me make a living reviewing work from home programs. We aid the public in avoiding scams, and rank high in the SERPs (Search Engine Result Pages) for our reviews. As a result of our efforts, scams like this one are quickly revealed to consumers and the efforts of the scammers (to steal money from unsuspecting consumers) are thwarted.
Answer: Instead of changing their ways, these scammers simply change the name of the program to something the public doesn’t recognize as a scam. Then they simply plug their link all over and continue to take complete advantage of people.
What is Link Posting?
Paydays at Home advertises itself as a link posting opportunity. Link posting was once a fairly lucrative way to make money online. Traffic is the most valuable thing within this industry. Back in the day, big companies would pay people to post links for them all over the web. When these links were clicked, the people that posted them got paid.
However, Google has updated their algorithm so that if a person posts too many low quality links, their site will actually be penalized because it is seen as “spammy.” As a result of this update, link posting (as a career) is practically extinct. You should never trust a program that tells you link posting is a good way to make money online, because they clearly don’t know what they are talking about.
Having explained duplicate scams and link posting, I’d like to take a minute to point out the deceitful ways that PAH markets themselves.
The Sleazy Tactics…
First and foremost, the way they advertise their services is ruthless.
- They create fake news sites that deceive people into thinking they are legitimate.
- They post their link on local job boards.
- They fabricate phony stories like: “Single mother makes it big…” or “retiree makes a million dollars in one hour….”
All of these tactics are old, worn out, and transparent. Their new tactic is utilizing “Sniper Sites.”
What are Sniper Sites?
Sniper sites are sites that insert a targeted keyword in the title. When I was researching PAH, I saw a lot of websites on the first page of the search results that had urls like:
You can clearly see that each url has “paydays at home” inserted into it. The reason people do this is because it is easier to rank for the keyword when it is in the url.
Now, think about what I told you earlier regarding people like me reviewing these scams and undermining them by outranking them on Google. With these sniper sites, they create phony reviews singing the praises of their programs, and they are attempting to cut us (the people trying to reveal them as scams) off.
Deceitful Use of Logos
PAH utilizes these logos at the top of their page. Notice that it says “work from home opportunities” have been featured on those news sites. They want to seem more legitimate but the truth is they have never been featured on any of these sites. Other work from home opportunities have and that’s all they state.
It would be wrong of me not to mention the obvious security issues that come with a site like this. At the bottom of their page they feature these images:
These images don’t mean anything. Again, they are only in place to mislead you into believing this is a legitimate site. In fact, look at the name listed on the images. Yet again, another name associated with the same program.
The site actually has an “https://” url as opposed to an “http://.” This is actually more secure and I was surprised to see this, but when I scrolled to the bottom of the page I noticed this disclaimer:
You see, the whole point of this “program” is to get you on the phone with a salesperson. They claim that it is a consultation call with an “expert” that will help you make money online. The truth is these salespeople will try to pressure you out of even more money.
Pros and Cons
- Shady and misleading marketing tactics.
- False advertising.
- They admit to giving your personal information away.
- High pressure salesmen (real shark types).
- No real program.
- This one is a complete scam folks.
The Final Word…
Paydays at Home is a scam. Their marketing tactics target people that are hoping to learn how to make money online, and they completely take advantage of them. Avoid this “program” at all costs and warn anyone you know that may be interested in starting their own Internet Marketing career to steer clear of Paydays at Home. PAH is designed to get you on the phone with a salesman whose goal is to scam you out of thousands of dollars.
I’d like to Encourage all of You…
to not give up on your pursuit of an online career. It can be incredibly frustrating to “keep on keeping on” in the face of so many scams. However, there are legitimate opportunities to learn how to make money online.
Internet careers didn’t exist twenty years ago.
Do you know what that means?
That means the time to strike is NOW. With over 3 billion people actively perusing the Internet, it is easier than it has ever been to make money with Affiliate Marketing (which is what I do). Working online is a real job if you treat it as such. For me it’s not about the money (although money certainly helps), it’s about the freedom that comes with working from home.
- I set my own hours.
- I don’t answer to a boss (well, I am my own boss and I can be pretty strict).
- I can travel (and roam indefinitely so long as I have an Internet connection).
- The most important thing of all, I have TIME to dedicate to my family.
I owe all of my personal success to one program that genuinely cared about teaching me the proper ways to make money online. If you are serious about learning to do what I do, than read this review. It will only take a few moments of your time and than you can choose to pursue the opportunity or walk away entirely. Just note: If you do pursue my #1 recommendation, it is entirely FREE to check out and you will not be pressured to stay if it doesn’t interest you.
Do you have any personal experience with Paydays at Home or another identical scam? Leave me a comment below! Help me to stay informed on any “new” programs that the people behind these scams come up with. I, as well as countless others, will be grateful to you.
