Home Online Profits Club is a work from home scam.
The site promises you will make over $379 per day doing very little work. All you need to do is pay the $97 and you get a “certified, proven and guaranteed home based job”.
Except there is no job and the training will not help you build a business. The only thing ‘certifiable’ about this, is that it’s a link posting scam.
Read on to see what this is really about. You’ll be glad you did.
Who’s Linda Wilson?
The sales page centeres around ‘Linda Wilson’ and her rags to riches story. So you’ll probably be keen to know that she’s a fictional character and her story is fake.
For starters, the website (homeonlineprofits.club/ls01/info.php) uses an anonymous domain registration. There’s nothing wrong with that in and of itself. But it does paint a clear picture when you consider what I’m about to show you.
Here’s the “struggling mother” named Linda Wilson from the sales page….
Now here she is as a stock photo…
As you can see, Linda Wilson isn’t even real.
Hold on a minute… using a stock photo doesn’t make her story fake though, right? True. But I know her story is fake because I’ve seen this EXACT story many times now.
Here’s the same story used by Heather Smith, Kelly Simmons and Tonya Martin…
These are just a few examples. You’ll find more within these link posting scam archives.
So, to circle back t the question of who Linda Wilson is- she’s a fictional character. The ‘rags to riches’ story of a single mother must work for these scammers, whatever the reason. Because they’ve been using this same story for years now.
In any case, she’s not real and neither is her story.
How This Scam Works
The first point of contact with this scam is the ‘squeeze page’ you sign up on…
On this page, you put in your name, email and phone number which goes into a database. From there, you are sent over to the sales page where you think you’ve found a real work from home job. Everything is made to appear urgent and ‘news worthy’ so you take action right away. Without doing your homework.
If you do fall for their story, you will land on the checkout page and be asked to pay $97. At which point you receive some mediocre training videos about affiliate marketing. There is no job, no one pays you ‘per link’ as the sales page says, and the training does not help you build a business.
Losing 97 dollars hurts. But if you thought that was the end of it- think again.
Whether you buy or not, you will receive SPAM emails, text messages and phone calls that try to convince you to buy the base product or the upsells. You will also receive SPAM from other companies they sell your information to.
privacy SPAM policy to show you what I mean…
This scam uses a team of boiler room sales people to aggressively upsell you into much higher ticket products. And this is where people lose substantial amounts of money.
The scammers running this have taken people for millions of dollars over the years. I prove this in my review of their so called ‘Wealth Certification Program’ and explain how the FTC have been involved too.
Why Home Online Profits Club Is a Scam
It’s hard to know where to start with why this is a scam. The whole thing is sketchy. Here’s some of the highlights from this particular scam though, to show you what I mean.
Link posting is not a real work from home job. I cannot overstate this enough. What they are really selling you is some generic, outdated training about affiliate marketing. Which is a business. You do not get paid per link and it takes real time and effort to make money this way. What would I know? I make a full-time income with affiliate marketing. So I know that anyone telling you it’s a job or that it’ll be ‘easy’ is full of it.
Pretending to be endorsed by the news is extremely misleading. The running theme in these scams is that they’re somehow endorsed by the news. They are not. These are simply generic news clips and logos they’ve scraped from legitimate websites to fool you. That’s it.
Scammy marketing tactics throughout. Every aspect of the marketing is shady. Apart from what I’ve already explained, they also use fake testimonials (also stock photos) and pretend there are ‘limited spots’ to get you to buy on impulse. Visit the page next week, the spots are not limited. The website they’re using might be down, but that’s only because enough negative reviews and complaints are out, so they move onto another version of the same scam.
Aggressive high ticket upselling could cost you BIG. As I explained earlier, they intend on getting you to buy much higher priced programs once you are inside the members area. Upsells aren’t a scam in their own right, but the way these guys market them is. I also seriously doubt they’re of any value based on what I’ve seen to date.
The ‘certification’ is completely fake. They claim to give you access to a “proven and certified way to work from home posting links”. This is completely untrue. I recommend you read the article I linked to earlier about this, and also see this article which explains how there is no such thing as a search engine agent. If real people weren’t losing money this would almost be funny- it’s that stupid.
Your personal information is sold to spammers. This can go from straight up annoying to outright dangerous. This is how these scammers monetise their traffic (visitors) even if they don’t buy. They sell your info to other marketers. Once you’re on a global SPAM database like this it’s impossible to get off it. You’re almost better off changing your email and phone number. Yup.
Home Online Profits Club is a scam and as such I cannot recommend it to you.
From the get go you are fed a bunch of BS about working from home posting links. Just like ‘Linda Wilson’ does. Except she and her entire story is fake, just like the non-existent job she’s selling you.
There are legitimate ways to work from home, but this isn’t one of them. I recommend saving your money and putting it into a legitimate program where you learn real skills and build a real business.
