Pyramid schemes 1144

Pyramid schemes are irresistible in theory but generally hollow in substance. The confusion lies in differentiating between the true and the fake because there is no clear cut dividing line between the two. The sound of making so much money without having to do much work is what attracts hordes of people to these schemes like ants to sugar. Irrespective of whether it is a legitimate MLM scheme or an illegal pyramid scam or whatever it is that they are offering you, insist that you must get paid to work and not the other way round.

The lure of joining a pyramid scheme program for free to make money simply sounds irresistible to many unsuspecting naive and gullible people. It is in fact a nightmare because you have to sign up and then 'upgrade to a status member' by buying the product in question, whether you want it or not. This pyramid scheme is all about buying, sponsoring and buying in a continuous cycle.

Maintaining a minimum purchase volume yourself and enrolling more down lines plus motivating your network to maintain the purchase volume is actually what this business is all about. Yet for those who shy away from the paradigm of “once beaten twice shy†, they will still (voluntarily) get themselves trapped in other pyramid schemes and continue to do so until doomsday because these people never learn to say “enough is enough†. There are companies who do offer genuine ‘work at home’ opportunities to those who master a degree of flair for writing where you can market your skills safely and earn a steady income if you keep your part of the bargain honestly. Once you have experience working on the internet, you will know automatically which company to trust and work for. If you are creative and versatile with words and possess some literary flair, your services will be invaluable to reputable companies that you can identify that matches your talents.

A few years back, you may remember hearing about the problems with pyramids schemes and other types of moneymaking ideas. When a pyramid is structured with a spillover placement of members, those who joined in the early stages will be lucky and would make some money well over and above what they invest in the scheme but those who bring up the rear are the ones who will lose money. It will turn out to be a Herculean task to find people who will part with sixty dollars to buy products they will never use, to make a few dollars.

People are tricked into joining these schemes by the company omitting the fact that they will have to buy the products in order to earn something. Only after signing in as a member will you be told that you need to spend money to upgrade yourself before you can start earning. Well, in order to upgrade, you are going to have to buy that product and take a chance that someone else will feel the same way but in many cases, you are going to find out that you were the only one to do it. Once you give up after failing to make money, you will have spent sixty dollars unnecessarily on a product you will never use. If people understand the ‘catch’ behind pyramid schemes, then it would be easier to find real ‘work at home’ jobs. In the absence of pyramid scams, it would be safe to enroll for ‘work at home’ jobs on the internet.
