Top Five Online Scams

The top five online scams on the Internet hit nearly ten million people last year according to an FBI report in December 2004. That figure doubled from 2003 to 2004 and people are continuing to fall for these email and identity theft scams.

These con artists and hackers are just waiting to commit online fraud and steal your identity. Look carefully at these top five online scams and be aware of what is going on so you won’t become a victim.

Scam # 1 Online Auction Scam

You buy something on an online auction, send them the money and get nothing in return. Or the product you get is a fake or a cheap knockoff instead of the genuine brand name item. This is a risk you take when buying from an online auction.

Scam # 2 Phishing Scam

The phishing definition is when a fraudster spams the Internet with email claiming to be from a reputable bank. The email outfitted with authentic bank logos asks you to log in and verify your account information. The theif captures your account information from the web adress they take you to and drains your account. These can also become identity theft scams too because they can sell your information to other criminals.

Scam # 3 Nigerian Letter Scam

These email scams usually start out with all capital letters and begins with: DEAR SIR/MADAM. The email goes on to say they are the some minister of something for an African country. He wants you to help him get millions of dollars out of the country. You just need to pay for legal fees and some other advanced fees before the transaction can be finalized. You would think people would be too smart to fall for this. But you would be wrong.

Scam # 4 Reshipping Scam

You are emailed by an offshore corporation that needs a U.S. address and bank account which you supply. You receive goods and reship them to another country. You receive wire transfers into your bank account and you transfer money into their offshore account. In return you get to keep a percentage of everything. But with this scam you are taking a big risk because you could get arrested for participating in moving stolen property and transferring stolen funds.

Scam # 5 Congratulations You’ve Won Scam

This email tells you have won a nice prize like a plasma TV, a new computer or even the lottery. All you have to do to claim your prize is go to this web address and pay for the shipping and handling with your credit card. In the case of winning the lottery they need advanced fees to cover legal costs. Not only do you never get the prize but you start getting mysterious charges on your credit card.

So what’s the best thing to do when you or someone you know has fallen for one of these scams? Some people are embarrassed and don’t want to tell anyone. But that’s how these thieves get away with these things for so long without getting caught. The best way to stop these con artists from operating is to report email scams to the authorities.

The best place to report email scams is The Internet Fraud Complaint Center or (IFCC). They are a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C). Their web address is: http://www1.ifccfbi.gov

IFCC’s mission is to address fraud committed over the Internet. For victims of Internet fraud, IFCC provides a convenient and easy-to-use reporting mechanism that alerts authorities of a suspected criminal or civil violation.

By becoming aware of these top five online scams and reporting email scams to the IFCC you can make the Internet safer for everyone.

Relationships Are The Key To A Network Marketing Business

While it is true that heavily branded websites like amazon.com
are household names and carry an implied trust with visitors, the
vast majority of websites are not well known and are found and
visited as a result of searches performed with search engines.
In these instances, the visitor is probably arriving at the
website for the first time and human nature often dictates fear
or suspicion of the unknown.

If someone is shopping around for the best price for a particular
item, say a Cuisinart food processor, they would probably go to a
site such as Ask Jeeves (at ask.com using the Smart Search for
Products feature) and quickly obtain a list of sources and prices
for the desired item. The “yes/no” purchase decision has already
been made and it is simply a question of who to buy it from.

In the case of network marketing, it is of critical importance to
build a sense of trust with your team members. Network marketing
is very definitely a relationship business and each relationship
typically starts out with two complete strangers sitting at their
respective keyboards.

The team building aspect of network marketing is of vital
importance to the success of each individual member and to the
team as a whole. Two key elements of team building are trust and
confidence and these factors play a very large role, particularly
for new team members.

As a team leader, you need to be knowledgeable about the business
(products, services, or whatever) and straightforward with
answers to questions about the business as well as providing
timely and thorough support to your team members. These actions
will cement the relationship and build trust and confidence among
your team members.

Network marketing has many aspects, but promotion, persistence,
and patience are three key elements which are critical to
achieving successful results.

PROMOTION is the lifeblood of network marketing. Whether you
are using online methods or offline methods, or a combination of
both, you must constantly strive to get your offering in front of
a targeted audience.

There are thousands of published sources that deal with specific
methods of network marketing (both online and offline), but the
key point to be made here is that you must have an active
promotion campaign designed to bring in a steady stream of new
prospective downline members.

PERSISTENCE is a key element in network marketing success.
You’ve gotta “just keep on keepin’ on”, even though frustation
levels can be quite high at times.

After you have been at it a while, and have a downline large
enough to provide reasonably accurate statistics, you will
probably find that about 95% of your downline members are dormant
and do nothing at all. Its easy to get down in the dumps or take
it personally when you encounter so many “do nothing” people.

Therefore, it is really important work with and actively support
the 5% or so that are serious about participating. And clearly,
an active and effective promotion campaign will continue to
bring in increasing numbers of potential participants so that
while 5% is small on a percentage basis, it can still be a
sizeable amount from a pure numbers standpoint.

PATIENCE is vital. You can expect that it will take about a year
before the awsome power of geometric growth kicks in.

A classic illustration of geometric growth is the frequently used
penny-a-day example.

If you save one penny on the first day, and double it every
successive day, (day two you have 2 pennies and day three you have
4 pennies, and so on) how much will you have at the end of
30 days? The answer, to the astonishment of many, is $5,368,708!
Amazing, but true.

Its a sad statistic that most network marketers fail and it is
often traceable to the fact that they did not exhibit enough
persistence and patience to continue constantly promoting their
business for the year or so that is required for success.

Network marketers that stick with it for a year or more often end
up becoming the proverbial “heavy hitters”.

In closing, I would like to encourage you to increase your chances
of becoming a successful network marketer by always keeping a
clear focus on “the three P’s” of Promotion, Persistence, and
Patience.

How to Secure a Low Cost Online Loan

If you’re in the market for a loan and haven’t thought about online options, you might want to consider looking into getting a low cost online loan.

Unlike a traditional loan from a bank or finance company, a low cost online loan doesn’t require you to drive around from lender to lender, looking for the lowest interest rate instead, you can simply compare interest rates from different online lenders from the privacy and security of your own home. What’s more, a low cost online loan can actually end up offering a lower interest rate than some banks and finance companies even if you don’t have great credit.

Of course, the first step in getting a low cost online loan is finding the right online lender; the best way to do this is to consult your favorite search engine and see where it takes you.

Searching for Loans

When using a search engine to find a low cost online loan, you should be pleasantly surprised to find that the first several results that are displayed from your search are likely going to be the best lending resources that you’ll find.

Search engines rank their search results based upon the relevance to your search terms, the trust that the search engine has in that site, and the amount of traffic that the site has received recently in conjunction to those search terms.

The sites that are displayed at the top of the listing are most likely to be reputable sites, and are therefore much more likely to be able to deliver the low cost online loan that you’re looking for.

Collateral

In order to keep the interest rates down for a low cost online loan, you’re going to need some form of collateral. The collateral that you need might differ slightly from loan to loan and lender to lender, but chances are it will be some form of high-value personal property.

Some loans, such as online mortgages and automobile financing, use the purchased item as collateral, whereas other loans such as debt consolidation loans require some additional form of collateral to serve as a guarantee that the loan will be repaid.

One common form of collateral for online lenders is the equity that the borrower has in their home or other real estate the individual needs of specific lenders may vary slightly, however.

Online Security

A major concern when dealing with online lenders is the safety and security of the borrower’s personal identifying information. Individuals who are applying for a low cost online loan usually have nothing to worry about, since online lenders do their best to protect the personal and financial information about their clients.

Internet security has come a long way since the early days of online communication, and lenders who do business over the internet make sure that their security is top notch to keep their customers coming back for years to come.

Work At Home Business Opportunities…Some Thoughts On The Selection Process

I started looking for viable work at home opportunities back in
2001. It was a time consuming process, but in retrospect, I give
myself a pat on the back every month when I cash the check from
my home based business. The purpose of this article is to
perhaps help others make their selection with a little less time
and effort than I had to expend.

Having spent many years running traditional “bricks and mortar”
type businesses, I didn’t buy for one second the numerous heavily
hyped, or worse yet, scam operations that touted the instant and
fantastic riches that could be achieved (often with little or no
effort required). While doing my research as to which business
I would eventually pursue, this type of claim became an instant
trigger for me to move on to check out some other “opportunity”.

I mean, give me a break, if those claims were close to being
true, why would they share their “secret” with anyone else?
They would just execute their “magic system” and in short order
would have made all the money that exists in the world…yeah,
right!

In the course of my investigations, a few other natural filters
surfaced to help me narrow down the realistic and legitimate
opportunities from among the far too numerous unfounded offers.
Early on, I determined that the “get in on the ground floor”
offers were essentially smoke. After all, if I wanted to take
a chance on the lottery, I would have purchased a ticket.
Because of my business management experience, it soon became
clear to me that three of the primary factors that would
influence my choice would be:

*successful longevity (how long has this particular company
been successfully doing business?)

*reasonable income expectations touted by the top management
of the company offering the opportunity.

*support systems and training resources available to help the
participants succeed.

One thing that really struck home with me was a statement made
by the founder of the company that I eventually selected for
my home based business. It went something like the following:

“Hardly a day goes by that I don’t hear from an affiliate
questioning why he or she is not seeing a big check yet. More
times than not, the person asking hasn’t even been involved
for more than 90 days and is only barely beginning to even
understand how the whole system works. And frankly, even if
the number was six months, it’s still much too early to be
expecting a significant income stream to have developed.

I always say that if you’re not willing to give a business at
least a year, don’t even bother getting involved. You need to
understand that it takes time to get to know all the nuances of
the compensation plan. It takes time to determine which products
you want to lead with. It takes time to develop a game plan. It
takes time to figure out what marketing activities deliver the
biggest bang for the buck. Anything worthwhile takes sustained
effort. If you’re not thinking long term, you’ve set yourself up
for failure.”

To sum it up, the selection process should focus on reality
(there is no “magic” in home based businesses) and reject any
so-called “opportunities” that seem too good to be true.

Good News About Getting Published

So you want to get a book published and add “author” to your resume. A decade ago, there weren’t too many options for professionals and consultants to get into print. If a traditional publisher wasn’t interested in your tome, your only other option was to spend tens of thousands of dollars with a subsidy press or custom printer. And then, without ready distribution, good luck trying to sell the books.

But all that has changed. Thanks to new technologies, today it is not only possible to produce a professional-looking copy of your book for under $1,000, you can also market the book through reputable sales channels.

Alternative publishers are able to print both paperback and hardcover books as they’re needed due to the bold new digital publishing technology known as “print-on-demand.” Simply put, print-on-demand turns the traditional economics of the $27.5 billion publishing industry upside down. Going digital allows books to be produced in small quantities — even one at a time — almost instantaneously. No longer does publishing require behemoth offset presses, hangar-size warehouses and fleets of trucks.

There are challenges, of course. Because print-on-demand books are not typically stocked on bookstore shelves, authors need to do a good job of marketing through publicity, direct mail and the Internet. But if you are a nonfiction author willing to be a self-promoter and whose book targets an identifiable market, then alternative publishing may be right for you.
With print-on-demand, your book is stored digitally until a customer orders it. At that point, a printing and binding machine creates a slick, high-quality paperback or hardcover book, all ready for shipping.

Print-on-demand has enormous implications for writers, readers, publishers and retailers. Because titles are produced “on demand,” there are never wasted copies (“remaindered” as they used to be dubbed in the old days). Paperbacks and hardcover books are priced competitively, with authors receiving royalties of 30 percent or more. Compare those with traditional publishing industry standards of 5 percent to 15 percent, and the appeal becomes a bit clearer still.

One of the leading publishers of print-on-demand books for professionals and consultants is 1stBooks. Established in 1997, 1stBooks is the world’s leading provider of publishing and marketing services for authors of all genres, with over 18,000 titles in its catalog, and over 500-plus new books added each month. All of its authors are considered self-published and retain all rights to their books.

“Alternative publishing levels the playing field and democratizes the publishing process,” said Robert McCormack, president of 1stBooks, in a recent interview with Writer’s Digest. “Authors who might have not fit or did not want to use the traditional publishing model can see their works in print.”

Print-on-demand is not, however, for every would-be author, says McCormack. There is no economy of scale, and the unit cost of printing one copy is exactly the same as printing 10,000. So, if there is a guaranteed market for at least 500 to 1,000 of your books, the economics of a traditional print run from a custom printer are better than print-on-demand in many cases.

As a result of the depth and breadth of the 1stBooks growing catalog, the company made an arrangement with the Ingram Book Group to distribute paperback and hardcover editions of its titles at thousands of bookstores worldwide. The deal uses the latest Print-on-Demand technology offered by Ingram’s subsidiary, Lightning Source. Because these books are generated one at a time, they neatly sidestep the high costs traditionally associated with bringing new books to the marketplace.

Self-publishing doesn’t mean you’re going it alone, either. 1stBooks authors have access to a comprehensive range of publishing and promotional services, including a full-time promotions staff, personal project coordinators and nationwide distribution through over 25,000 bookstores and book retailers, via the Internet at Amazon.com, Barnes&Noble.com, Borders.com and the 1stBooks Web site.

The current 1stBooks basic publishing package entails a $399 fee to create an e-book from scratch. Of that total, $300 is a deposit and is subsequently refunded through 100 percent commission on the author’s first sales until the amount is completely paid. An extra $199 is required for paperback publication, with royalty rates paid at the author’s choice of 50 percent, 30 percent, 20 percent or 10 percent.

Similar packages are available through other alternative publishers like iUniverse, xLibris and Infintiy Publishing.

Alternative publishers have made a conscious decision to offer their services to everyone, rather than give control to an elite clique of editors and agents, as is often true in traditional publishing. While incoming manuscripts are checked for formatting before a new title goes online, alternative publishers do not edit for style and content. These companies do not make value judgments about the literary merit of books. The author decides what the public reads, and the public decides if it makes good reading or not. It is a purely market-driven approach, and allows almost anyone to make a new book available to millions of readers, at a small fraction of the cost of traditional publishing methods.

Forming a Corporation Investors

You’ve come up with the best idea since sliced bread, figured out a business name and formed a corporation. There is, however, one small problem. You need money. Welcome to the world of investing.

Business Funds

Unless Bill Gates is your friend, money is going to be a problem for every new business. Even the might Google had to hunt for cash with one of the founders of Sun Microsystems finally kicking down a much needed $100,000. Whether you decide to pimp your business plan to anyone breathing or beg your step-mother for funds, here are some issues to consider.

Investors are looking for the best deal, to wit, the most stock possible in an entity. If you are asking them for cash, they have the leverage. Don’t be so desperate that you give away the farm. All to often, I speak with individuals who started a business on a whim and have become disillusioned because they have lost equity in the business.

Assume I start a corporation and need funds. My neighbor agrees to kick in $20,000 for 20% of the stock. Things go great, but four months later I need another $50,000 for inventory and cash flow. My aunt agrees to kick in $50,000 for another 20% of the stock. Yikes, I am not even through the first year and I have given up 40% of the equity!

What happens in year two when I need a $100,000? I give up more stock and suddenly own less than 50% of the business. Inevitably, this leads to feelings of resentment and bitterness. “It was my idea, but now these blood suckers are going to get most of the money and they aren’t even working on the business.” This sentiment is so common that it would be laughable if it weren’t so depressing.

As a general rule, you should only sell ownership in a business as an absolute last resort. Instead, try to get loans from investors, banks, home equity lines and even credit cards.

If you must sell stock to raise funds, be very careful when valuing the stock. You should place a value on each share as though the company was already a raging success, not just starting out. Further, make sure you sell only small allotments of stock such as three to five percent. If you owned IBM, how much of the ownership would you sell for $20,000?

In Closing

When starting a corporation, guard equity as though it is the Holy Grail. If you don’t, you risk becoming a disillusioned shareholder down the road.

For Marketing-Minded Financial Planners, Small Publications Can Have Great Publicity Impact

Just because a publication is small doesn’t mean that getting your name in it won’t have great impact.

Trade on the reputation of the trades

Some of the trade publications have very loyal audiences who are much more likely to trust someone they see there than someone on the local news or in The Wall Street Journal. Now I’m not talking about the trade publication for your profession – the only people you’ll reach are your competitors. Get yourself in the publications your prospects and clients read!

Don’t forget the Sewer Cleaner Association’s newsletter

It’s a great to get yourself in the newsletters of the associations your prospects in that niche belong to. Whatever your market is, you can bet it has a professional or trade association. Sure, their newsletters are “smaller.” But there’s nothing better or more tightly focused on reaching your targets – and no one else!

Offer yourself as a guest columnist

Unlike the major publications, which receive 100 times more material then they could ever print, smaller publications usually scramble to get enough content. Ask one of those industry publications, or your local paper, if they’d like a guest columnist to write advice articles on your topic. Or offer to answer “reader’s mailbag” questions.

Do Organizations Serve Us Or Do We Serve Organizations

We have seen an erosion in the confidence that society has in organizational leadership and its integrity recently with the numerous accounting scandals that have become public.Clearly this has led to the demise of several large organizations. In performance terms it is obvious that erosion of leadership integrity is not good for business.

The integrity that exists within an organization either lives or dies with the mission statement and underlying values around which an organization functions. Often the mission and values focus on such things as organizational performance, customer service, quality products, profit goals etc. These are then used as guiding posts and navigational aids to lead and inform leaders and employees at all levels within the organization.

Effectively, individuals then have to “integrate” themselves within the organizational directive in order to survive there. The organizational mission becomes an overarching theme in the lives of these individuals whether or not it is truly aligned with their own values and purpose in life. Of course most individuals are not in the habit of considering their values or purpose in life so they are only too happy to adopt someone else’s in order to stem the inner feelings of insecurity that arise from not having their own.

The organization then becomes a species in its own right and the individuals working within it have to alter their own values and purpose if they hope to remain a part of it. The problem arises however with the fact that organizational mission and values are often not aligned with basic human values. A clear example of this relates to the increasing number of hours that individuals find themselves working in a week and the increasing incidents of burnout related illness. Truly, I think anyone would say that this is not what he or she desires.

So the organization has become an entity that runs individuals lives rather than a means for individuals to achieve their purpose in life. They serve the organization not the other way around. But wait a minute here, isn’t an organization a “human” construct meant to further our goals, desires and purpose in alignment with our basic human values? After all don’t we want to do something in life that gives us joy, happiness, peace of mind, that helps us expand our creative potential in meaningful ways, that furthers the quality of our lives and the lives of others on this planet and that protects our environment? Have we therefore given up our power to an entity that doesn’t represent us? Is it possible to restore our rightful place in this equation and return the organization back into an instrument (or perhaps more accurately a process) that serves human values and humanity in general?

If we come back to the issue of integrity it becomes clear that the integrity, that is the “survival”, of the organization has become the imperative, not the integrity, that is the “wholeness”, of the individual. Notice that I have used the concept of integrity in two different senses here. The individual loses her/his sense of wholeness by repressing his/her basic human core values, effectively “cutting off” important parts of themselves. This repression often occurs out of fear of not surviving and effectively is an unconscious way of “lying” to oneself about what is truly important to that individual. The behavior of lying to oneself is about being “dishonest” with ones’ self or losing one’s integrity or wholeness.

At this point one might ask, is trying to survive not a basic human value? Well I might say that if given a choice an individual would rather “live” than just try to “survive”. Yet because the fear is so powerful most of us have even lost a sense of what it means to live. The idea of survival has a negative feeling attached to it for most people. It’s a feeling of just getting by and for no other purpose. It begins to feel like a meaningless exercise. Living however feels more positively motivating and full of potential. It in fact encompasses most of the human values for joy, peace of mind, creativity, etc. that I mentioned earlier.

Now if you follow me so far I think you are beginning to see that the problem of integrity has something to do with how we as individuals have been conditioned to react out of fear throughout our lives. It is clear that there is a lot to be afraid of as we are growing up in an uncertain world. It is this accumulated fear that we carry around that ultimately undermines our integrity (sense of wholeness and sense of personal honesty) in the long run.

Coaching for Organizational Integrity is about restoring our sense of wholeness and sense of personal honesty. This will allow us then to have the awareness of what we truly desire for ourselves and possibly enhance our courage to pursue it. Its premise rests on the observation that our conditioned responses to life long trauma become associated with limiting negative beliefs about others our environment and ourselves. Below is a short example of an exercise that I have used with individuals in my coaching practice to help them go beyond internal limitations to a place of greater awareness and self determination

Example:

A sales executive selling water treatment equipment is under pressure to meet his sales quota for this month. The economy is in a slump and he knows he will be unduly pressured to explain why his performance is slipping. He generally likes his job and has felt that his mission in life has been to help improve the environment and offer customers a product that they will truly get health benefits from. But under recent pressure he has started to doubt his sales abilities and this has inhibited him from being his normal ebullient self. He has started to have fears of failing and worries that he might get fired if he doesn’t meet his monthly quota.

Analysis of Situation:

There are a number of beliefs that this individual is unconsciously entertaining that need to be addressed:

1. His doubts about himself suggest that deep down he “doesn’t believe that he is capable of succeeding”. This is evident because if he knew with certainty that he could succeed doubt about this would never arise.

2. His fears of failing suggest that he ” believes he could fail”. This is evident because if he knew with certainty that he would never fail this thought would never arise.

3. The worry suggests he “believes the quality of his life would be made worse with failure to meet his quota”.

Now from the standpoint of integrity the highlighted beliefs clearly are not doing him any good. They are causing him to turn against himself; they create anxiety, confusion, inhibition, and ultimately reduced performance. We therefore have an individual who is “disintegrating” not one who is “integrated” or “whole”. So why would anyone accept these negative statements to be true?

Well over our lives we unconsciously learn to accept such negative beliefs about ourselves based on the failed experiences we have had. Rationalizations form around these negative beliefs and anchor them in our minds, whether we want them there or not.
Let me illustrate:

1. The negative belief ” I don’t believe I can succeed” is held in our unconscious by the rationalization: ” Well if I believe this then I will work harder and I will succeed”.

In other words we unconsciously come to believe that this negative belief actually “helps us to succeed”.

2. However when we look at the evidence the belief ” I don’t believe I can succeed” actually ushers in self-doubt, anxiety, fear, confusion, inhibition all of which ultimately lead to reduced performance and potential failure. There is no success in this picture.

3.The rationalization “Well if I believe this then I will work harder and I will succeed” is actually a “lie” we choose to accept as truth. By doing so it anchors the negative belief in our minds and makes us susceptible to its ravages.

It is possible to make individuals aware of their negative beliefs and the rationalizations that anchor them. Additionally through a simple exercise, known as the Mind Resonance Process

Explore MLM And Network Marketing Opportunities

When looking at MLM and network marketing opportunities, don’t consider one just on your initial reaction. Take time to all the elements involved and see how the company operates. Purchasing into a MLM opportunity is like buying a house. You have to live with your choice a long time and it you don’t like it, you might lose money when you move. Also, if you choose an MLM company that has been in business a short time, you might make a bad choice. The MLM industry is full of opportunities, so make your choice wisely.

The best choices in MLM and network marketing opportunities are the major players in the MLM field. Companies such as Mary Kay and Amway offer excellent products, superior training programs, and outstanding customer service and support. If this will be your first business, working with their expertise will help you develop good business practices for yourself. Also, their commission packages are good and you can count on receiving a check from them.

When comparing options, look for MLM and network marketing opportunities that use your talents and interests. Find a business that appeals to your individual tastes. Investing in a business that you don’t enjoy doesn’t make sense. You’ll hate the work and the business will become more of a chore rather than an opportunity. Fit your knowledge and background to the opportunity to measure if the company is right for you. Your life experiences can add greatly to a company’s offerings to create a perfect blend.

Finally, when considering MLM and network marketing opportunities, consult a friend that has been involved with the company you are considering. Chances are they have some knowledge on the particular MLM opportunity, whether as a distributor or a customer. Also, when you start an MLM business, find someone in the organization to serve as a mentor for you. They can show you the ropes and ease your transition in the world of MLM business.
