What is the first thing that cross your mind when you see any screaming advert talking about some money making opportunity whether the claim is outrageous or not. For me I am a very curious person and love to find out about anything I find interesting or amusing.So I always keep an open mind as regards the kind of information I get. Anytime I come across such adverts on money making schemes I apply some kind of psychology caution then I check it out asking a few questions here and there both on and offline this way I have been able to save myself some losses and disappointments. When you come across such adverts what is the first thing that goes through your mind?

Same as you do I also get to find the information and then i will explore on it. It really is convincing when you see profit earning adverts but Like you do I also make necessary precautions to avoid spam or scam.

Well, sometimes I'm like "wow, that sounds like a good deal!" but you know, then I think about it and I know most of the time it's way too good to be true and there's some sort of condition and you really won't earn that much money.

I've fallen victim to a few scams and some affiliate programs that just didn't work for me. I think I used to be more optimistic but now I am skeptical and question everything. I will give it a try if it sounds good but if it looks to costly I opt to go no further.

yeah,each one of us have had a few bad luck like that when we have been suckers for some bogus programs but i guess we all have too learn one way or the other evn if its negative,but i guess the lack of good information is the major reason we fall for them we become wiser and more skeptical when we are experienced.
