To tell you the truth I have found the most perfect solution to this Do Not Log Onto The Internet. We all know that is not going to happen in this wonderful wireless world we live in now. If the world was to go into a total blackout with no more electricity the whole world would be in total chaos. Well enough of that silliness lets get back to my article about how to avoid Internet scams.

One really good thing about the Internet is if you do research on a specific product or person that is trying to sell you something. You will find out there are thousands of people out there that have been scammed by them or it was a legit sale and it help them out, by researching you would be able to get information from blogs that these people put out. Also you can look up people and products on the Better Business Bureau, because they keep information on these sleaze bags or so called Internet gurus that promise you they can show you how to get rich quick schemes. We all know we will not get rich quick anytime soon unless you hit the lottery. So we're is the safest place to avoid scams now days?

Google search is your best bet to start your search about products or opportunities on how to make money online , the best part about Google is all of the links are approved by real people and then uploaded to there site. If you are interested in an opportunity or product you should ask Google to look up any references from other people who have benefited or fallen prey to these douchbags.

Another way to avoid internet scams is you should make sure your spyware and antivirus protection software is always up to date on your computers. Because the bad guys love to put stealth programs in spam e-mail attachments these guys do not care if you by the product they just want to take over your computer through a back door program and use your computer for there malicious follies. I hope I am teaching you enough on how to avoid internet scams in this short article that i am writing now. Thank you for your time and I will be back with more articles about internet scams.

Thank you for this article Tom. Truth is that most of them are either scams, or you have to know enough about internet marketing to make these programs work. Otherwise, they drop you off a cliff. That's very frustrating to newbie marketers.The scam perps don't care. And those are the good programs. Then there's the real sleaze ball scams, the super scams that rob you of time and money or more. I'd like to see an honest review of all the new digital marketing products being offered. All of them in one place. I think Steve (i've tried that) is doing something like that.

Great article Tom. Exactly the approach I use on anything that looks remotely worth looking into (most don't), I leap on to Google and search for reviews. Very often things stop there and the delete key is used, Regards Keith

Good Article, Tom..To avoid be scammed on the internet...don't turn on the computer..That I liked. Unfortunately, I do... And I am never disappointed because everyday I see them all there...and I have taught myself to treat them just like the people in the Greyhound bus terminals throughout the US selling solid gold chains at a low price that turn green at the speed of light...avoid them by every means possible. lol Once again Good Article.
