Objection Your Honour I was Looking For A Bargain

Written by Monika Mundell  · July 31, 2008


Bargain Hunters are all around us. They stand next to us in the supermarket, at the bus stop, in IKEA and they shop on eBay. If we are totally honest with ourselves, we all love a bargain.

After all, it makes financial sense to save money. Money saved while we shop will last a lot longer when we plan our next vacation. Therefore it is no wonder that the Internet is full of bargain hunters too.

You know, the get rich quick type stalker. They seek, stalk and pounce on their prey – or so they think – only to end up bankrupt, stripped of their money and in front of a judge if the worst fears become reality.

Did you know that by participating in a pyramid or unlawful business scheme you could end up paying thousands of dollars in court cases, let alone in funds for those who got cheated.

While the fast money might be tempting, it is hardly ever reality. Often those so called “bullet proof” opportunities are actually riddled with holes. Holes that will pull you down super fast if you are green enough to believe everything they force feed you.

Being ignorant or “blue eyed” doesn’t protect you from the law these days. This is why you can’t tell the police officer that you didn’t see the red light.

So what can you do to protect yourself against this eventuality? Well, for starters you can use common sense when you suss out a business opportunity.

If it sounds too god to be true, it is.

Also, before you enroll into any opportunity that offers unbelievable remuneration do the following:

  • visit Google and search for reviews on that company
  • ask to see proof from existing business owners within that company
  • get in touch with the company directly. If they are professional and willing to show you their goodwill before you join, they might be proper
  • ask other people in the same industry about feedback on the company
  • check with BBB (the better business bureau)
  • use your common sense and look for over used hype (a company that is good doesn’t need to use excessive hype)

To avoid ending up before a judge do your research first, before you join the wrong company. Many people get burned with these scams every year and millions are lost to them.

Being gullible won’t safe you from the judge. You need to be aware of these dangers when traveling the Internet.

In the end, bargains are great if they are obtained legally, without hurting anybody in the process.

What do you think? Have you been burned before?

    Great advice. It’s so easy to get fooled by the scammers these days.

    @ George: Isn’t it just. I see it happening a lot. Some poor soul who lost all their money because they believed the wrong guru. Hopefully this post will help somebody not to go down that way.

    the BBB tip is a nice one – you can see how many complaints a company has had against it. another tip is to look up the company’s domain name at – if they’re hiding their contact information or something doesn’t add up, it’s easy to avoid them.
