Many folks set out to earn money online and end up getting scammed because they can't distinguish something that is real from something that is not. Case in point is the scam that has proliferated the Net in recent month about posting links on Google.

Many work from home ads you see lead to something called "Scott's Money Blog" or any other variety of blogs with a different first name. They all look like a blog at first glance but closer evaluation shows that they are just one page of false and misleading information.

This Google jobs scam leads you from the blog to a product that is called the "Google Money Biz Kit" or any other variety of names. This product is not authorized by Google and has nothing to do with Google at all. In fact, Google is now trying to get these ads taken down but it is hard as they are all over the place.

The Google money kit or whatever you want to call it will just show you how to do a Google Adwords campaign (hence the posting links on Google title) with costs additional money and you must know what you are doing or you will lose more money. Additionally, by ordering the kit, you will have to give them your credit card and you will be automatically charged a "membership" fee of $49.95 or more per month unless you canel. Good luck getting your membership cancelled.

All in all, the bottom line is that you should steer clear of any "Google" money making system or job because they are not selling one and are not hiring for posting links. No matter how enticing the ad copy is, the fact remains that it is a scam of sorts. There are many legitimate ways to make money online but this isn't what you think it is so you should be very cautious before you pull your credit card out.
