How to Avoid Money Scams, Google Style

It’s obvious that How to steer clear of money scams on the Official Google Blog is meant to promote Google’s services, with liberal linking. But at least the advice is sensible (more like common sense actually), and the services linked to really are useful. That is all.

    I signed up for one of those $1.95 ads, company out of New Jersey apparently, just to see what the deal was, knowing I was likely throwing $$ away. I got what I expected, an explanation of the Google Adsense program and how to post that code on websites that I had control over. But then, they called up twice trying to sell me a monthly subscription to create new web sites promoting Amazon, eBay and other affiliate programs (which you can apply for free) in exchange for a monthly fee to gain “access to their network of affiliated products”. I turned them down, twice.

    Then a month later, they debited $69.90 from my checking account, same account the $1.95 had been debited from. I’ve been unable to reach a human to get this reversed and stopped, so I’ve turned them over to Chase Bank’s Fraud Department.

    Adios! Go deal with Chase Bank now!
