Earn Money Easy Online – Really?

Don’t let the title mislead you, this is not about making money fast online, rather it’s about helping you to avoid falling prey to the ‘easy money type scams.

Earn Easy Money Online

Peter V Crisp

“However; You can earn money online and you can do it easily – but it takes time and dedication – on your part. I can show you how to do that and exactly how you can work at home and make money. But first I need to warn you about the many get-quick-rich scams that are so prevalent on the internet. I know because I too, have been taken in by them”.  



A get-rich-quick scheme is a plan to acquire high rates of return, on a small investment. The term “get rich quick” has been used to describe shady investments since the early 1900s. Beginning with the ‘Ponzi Scheme‘ named after Charles Ponzi, who became notorious for using this technique in 1920.

Earn Easy Money OnlinePonzi scheme is a fraudulent investment operation where the operator pays returns to its investors not from profits earned but from the new capital paid in by new investors.

New investors are enticed into the scheme, by offering higher returns than other investments. The returns are usually abnormally high and extremely profitable, in the short term.

People were attracted to the promise of fast, easy money. Hence the lure to things like gambling, theft, blackmail, politics and at its extreme, war.

The Promise of Fast, Easy, Money

Earn Money Easy Online

A David Rhodes Type Chain Letter; from Perth, Australia in 2006

The original “Make Money Fast” letter is said to have been written around 1988, by a person, who used the name, Dave Rhodes.

The letter encouraged readers to forward one dollar in cash, to a list of people provided in the text and to add their own name and address to the bottom of the list after deleting the name at the top. 

By 1994 “Make Money Fast” became one of the most persistent ‘spams‘ around with many variations (such as claiming to be from, a retired lawyer or claiming to be selling “reports” in an attempt to make the scheme appear lawful) and rather than sending the money by post you could send it electronically via the likes of PayPal.

Pyramid Schemes

Using the theory behind pyramid schemes, the resulting flow of money would initially deliver a reward of thousands of dollars, to the people participating in the scheme as their chain spread and more and more people sent money to their address.

You may have seen or heard of other examples of these chain type letters /emails that became more and more sophisticated as time went by; (see examples below)

  • Bill Gates Email Beta Test;  An email chain-letter that first appeared in 1997 and was still circulating in 2007. The message claims that Microsoft is conducting a beta test and each person you forward the email to, you will receive a payment from Bill Gates of around $200. (Used to gather email addresses)
  • The Lottery scam involves fake notices of lottery wins (without you even entering the lottery in question). The winner is usually asked to send information such as name, residential address, occupation etc. The scammer then notifies you that releasing the funds requires a small fee (insurance, registration, or shipping). Once the victim sends the fee, the scammer invents another fee, another delay and so it goes on. In the meantime ‘your details‘ have been sold or worse are used to get credit using your identity.
  • Nigerian Scam/419 scam – An email scam attempt popularized by the ability to send millions of emails. The scam claimed the sender was a high-ranking official from Nigeria with a large sum of money that they cannot claim but must divest and they need your help to do so. They require a smaller sum of money up front to access the money before it can be sent to the receiver.

(See a variant of this type of scam in the example below)

Earn Easy Money Online

Many Variations

There are many variations on how these scams can work. Some of the more commonly seen variants involve employment scams, pet scams, romance scams and online sales and rentals such as those advertised on websites such as Craigslist and eBay.

They want to get your personal information so they can instigate identity theft in order to get lines of credit or credit cards using your identity. Or sell the information to someone else who will do this or similar. Or worse they can access your bank account and clean you out.

A Common Theme

Essentially, however, all these scams are similar in that – YOU are suddenly presented with an opportunity to make “FAST” & “EASY” money.

When it comes to the internet there are more specific characteristics such as, they typically promote “secret formulas” and will usually claim that the system requires no special IT or marketing skills.  Earn Easy Money Online

They will also have  an unrealistic timeframe in which you could make hundreds or thousands of dollars a day. 

And they usually have catchy titles and images of wealth and luxury to encourage potential victims into signing up.

  • They imply that anyone signing up will become rich within a few weeks or months
  • They claim the route to success is to follow “the secret” that no one else has
  • They use pressure to get the victim to sign up quickly claiming that time is short.
  • They often make a point of displaying testimonials from “previous users.”

“When really none of these things are true. It all lies and B.S. designed to get you to give them your hard earned cash, using the lure of Fast & Easy money”.

    Thank yours for reminding me of the various types of scam in both Email and on the internet. I think more people should be aware of this to prevent them from falling into this trap.
    I agree that Wealthy Affiliate is one of the best ways to earn money online. Although it is not easy and not fast, as long as you work hard, you can make a decent amount per month.
    I believe Wealthy Affiliate is the best one in the market right now.

    • Peter

      Hello, Amit.

      There are many variations on how scams can work. Some want to get your personal information so they can instigate identity theft in order to get lines of credit or credit cards using your identity or sell the information to someone else who will do this or similar. Or worse they can access your bank account and clean you out.

      Others typically promote “secret formulas” and will usually claim that the system requires no special IT or

      marketing skills and an unrealistic timeframe in which you could make hundreds or thousands of dollars a day and they usually have catchy titles and images of wealth and luxury to encourage potential victims into signing up and parting with their money.

      that is straight, honest and down-to-earth. Created by online marketers for those

      other programs.

      Thanks for your comments. 🙂

  • Everton

    There is a sucker born every minute. This is the mantra of all con artists. They rely on the tendency of many persons to display very short memories, because the same scams under a different name seems to recur over and over. This is the first time I have ever seen politics being described as a get rich quick scheme, but in retrospect you are right. What better way to get rich spectacularly than by conning millions of people to give you access to state coffers plus raising your profile with cheap publicity as a bonus.

    • Peter

      Hello, Everton. Yes, there are scammers everywhere. But fortunately you can learn how to honestly make money online. You can create your very own piece of the internet real estate from which to connect to some of the 3 billion people who are searching for information online.

      By giving these visitors what they want and in many cases providing solutions to problems, by fulfilling their needs and in the process of satisfying them, you might earn revenue from any products or services that they freely elect to purchase as a result of your recommendations. Which is exactly what you learn from WA.

      Thank you for your comments. 🙂

  • Carthik

    Completely agree with you, Peter. There’s no such thing as “Overnight Success”. However, one may be doomed to “Overnight Failure”, if he gets fooled into believing on the “Get Rich Quick” schemes.

    I sometimes wonder, that just to get themselves richer, people go to the extent of fooling others, play with their emotions. They don’t realize how many lives would get affected just for their own self-interest. Sometimes people loose everything, believing such “Get Rich Quick” schemes.

    However, WA is a genuine place, that offers education to build an online business based on their vast experience. They keep updating the training, bring in new features and tools frequently. The members of WA community help each other in need and the support team offers prompt response to queries and issues.

    • Peter

      Hello, Carthik. Yes, I agree with you about there is no such thing as an overnight success and I liked your expression ‘Overnight Failure’.

      A get-rich-quick scheme is a plan to acquire high rates of return on a small investment. The term “get rich quick” has been used to describe shady investments since the early 1900s and continues to this day in many forms particularly on the internet.

      As you said fortunately there are places like Wealthy Affiliate that can help us become educated about building a sustainable long term business online.

      Thank you for your comments. 🙂

  • Bert

    I have seen some of the scams mentioned and dismissed them for obvious reasons. It is good to know there are reputable opportunities out there. I have always believed that providing true value (whether product or service) is the best approach to repeat business, and success with that business. Am I correct in thinking Wealthy Affiliate works in that manner ?

    • Peter

      Hello, Bert. You are correct in thinking that Wealthy Affiliate works that way. They are number one in my books for getting an online education. I am pleased you have enjoyed my post and thank you for your comments. 🙂

  • Monica Bouteiller

    Hey Peter… Great article! I can understand why people want to make money fast but in the real world, it’s not that way for sure. It’s sad to see so many people get scammed… chain letters for one. I remember getting emails and Facebook messages from people I know on chain letters. I even remember sending money on a chain letter and of course never heard back.

    I’m a whole lot more aware now of the ‘become rich’ in a few weeks, etc. All lies…

    Making money does take work and there are honest online sites to go to, although they are few. I actually became a member of Wealthy Affiliate after doing lots of research on them and I do put in a lot of hours on my site, but it’s all worth it. My site is now ranking…. And I’m not even a techy person!

    Thanks again!

    • Peter

      Hello, Monica. Thank you for your kind words and yes, there is no such thing as an over night success. Most traditional businesses that become super successful (apparently overnight) took at least twenty years to do so. As an example both, Apple (1977) and Starbucks (1971) started in the 1970’s and didn’t really become a ‘success’ till the 1990’s. Even Walmart who became an incorporated company in 1969, didn’t become the biggest most successful retailer in the U.S. till 1989.

      Fortunately with an online business it doesn’t have to take anywhere near twenty years to become successful perhaps only a year or two depending on how hard you work. Wealthy Affiliate will certainly give you the tools to get the traction you need to build a long term sustainable online business.

      Thanks for your comments. 🙂

  • Aydo

    Hey Peter,

    Great article indeed,
    You know, pointing out how scams are structured and the way they work is brilliant!

    People always go in with the hope of making effortless income and ends up demoralized and not knowing what to do next.

    The best approach is to start an online business the right way and Wealthy Affiliate is certainly the perfect place to start!

    Being a member for a while now, i came to realize that if I hadn’t stumbled upon it at the right time, i would’ve probably dropped on my dreams now.

    But look at me now, managing my own business and watching it as it grows in front of my eyes,
    Certainly never been better!

    Thank you for the good read 🙂


    • Peter

      Hi, Ayoub Yes, you are right “managing your own business and watching it as it grow in front of your eyes” is indeed a great thing. Thank you for your comments and WA is certainly the right place to get the online education anyone needs to become a success in this business. 🙂

  • Jackson

    The information here about the origin of “make money fast” is very interesting. I can see how the term “make money fast” became so popular. The Bill Gates email chain is particularly interesting; I can only imagine how many emails that that person obtained with that method! And also, thank you for the Wealthy Affiliate recommendation! I will have to check them out.

    • Peter

      Hello, Jackson You are welcome and thank you for your comments. Yes, please check out Wealthy Affiliate I am sure you will not be disappointed with what you find. Happy you found the post interesting. 🙂

  • Paula Allevato

    Hello, Peter! I´ve really liked your website! Good value on it! It´s good to see that there are people trying to do things in a honest way!

    I´m studyin the affiliate marketing business now and it seems really interesting to me. Could you tell me, from your experience if there is a way to get traffic quickly? I mean, how much posts do you usually post in one week? Is it a topic in order to get more traffic?

    Thanks and congratulations for your website!

    • Peter

      Hello, Paula Thank you for your questions. Really there is no effective way to get traffic super-fast. Well not traffic that will be the quality that you need for a long term business. If you join WA then you will get all the answers you need and the right training also. Think of it like this you need to learn before you earn and how long that takes you depends upon how much learning you do and whether you implement what you learn. Thank you for your comments. 🙂

  • Arta

    Hi Peter

    Thank you for the informative post. I did enjoy reading it. It covered very interesting topics, including the history of scams. I have never believed in an easy-money scheme as I know that nothing in our lives is easy 🙂 I have always been very suspicious to any promise of easy money. So I do believe Wealthy Affiliate is the right choice as it emphasizes your own hard work and your time to build your business. They teach the right way of succeeding online in a long run.

    • Peter

      Hello, Arta Thank you for your comments and I am pleased you enjoyed the post. Yes WA is indeed a great place to get the education we need to become a success online. hope you also enjoy the eBook that is coming your way. 🙂

  • Mitch

    Hi Peter,
    Thanks for the great information on online scams and the interesting history. I have been looking around for a good program to get started with and have been scammed several times myself. It seems everyone wants your money and then you get zero value for the money spent.

    It sounds like Wealthy Affiliate is a good program to look at. I like that the training is free to start. I think it is important to be able to see what it’s all about before making a decision to spend money on the program. I will give it a look.
    Thanks for your help,

    • Peter

      Hello, Mitch Yes WA is a great place to get the necessary training if you are wanting to make a living online. Not many programs offer you a free trial these days so that tell you how much confidence they have in their program plus 800,000 plus members can’t all be wrong! Thanks for your comments. 🙂

  • matt

    Great post. I think that people are always falling for the get rich quick schemes especially with how short our attention spans are becoming with so much content out there. That’s what I like about WA it teaches you to create a tribe within your passion and focussing more about offering continuous value. Helping people is more fulfilling anyway 😉

    • Peter

      Hello, Matt Thanks for your comments. Yes, I agree WA is an awesome place to get the online education you need to find success on the internet. Hope you enjoy the eBook that is coming your way 🙂

  • Make Money With Ricky

    Very nice article about Wealthy Affiliate and I really enjoyed not only the content but at the bottom, I saw over 34 comments from people who loved your content and love the way blogging generates income. Also, this is a long term business and this article was done around 2015 and it’s amazing how much traffic you’re getting for free because, you took the time to search for your keywords, create the content, indexed the content, and now you are getting traffic.

    Wealthy Affiliate is very interesting and since I started with them, I really have more passion for what I do and I’m learning on how to create my content and share good information with my audience.

    Thanks for your article, Peter!

    • Peter

      Hello, Ricky Pleased you have enjoyed my post and thank you for your comments and please watch out for the eBook that is coming your way for leaving a comment. 🙂

  • Jess

    My own parents were unfortunately taken in by one of the “Make Money Fast” letters that you spoke about in this article. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is unfortunately.

    I love your video at the bottom of this article! And thank you for sharing a link on what you use to create your videos.

    Wealthy Affiliate is amazing! I love the community and support. The training provided is the best of its kind, in my opinion.

    Thanks for the great article! Keep up the great work =)

Sorry to hear about your parents unfortunately they will not be the only ones which is what makes Wealthy Affiliate so powerful because they really are very good and anyone wanting to learn how to make an honest living online will find all they need to succeed here. All the best. 🙂

  • Eric

    Hi Peter,

    The history of internet scams is really interesting. I remember getting a couple of the Nigerian money scams back in the day. To bad it wasn’t true! I think a lot of people fall for scams because they don’t want to work at legitimate ways to make money online. It sounds like Wealthy Affiliate fits the bill of a legitimate way to make money online. I will check them out!

    • Peter

      Hi Eric Thank you for your comments. Yes Unfortunately the internet is full on online scammers who make it difficult for real people to be trusted online. Fortunately WA makes learning the skills and getting the education necessary to create an online sustainable income much easier than one could imagine. Thanks again for the feed back 😉

  • Mac

    I hope this not a silly question do you give one and one help? You seem to be a very knowledgeable guy. If you can send me an email at
    Anyway thanks for the heads up on IMSC rapid auto res ponder. I will do some research on its capabilities and decide if I can use it.

  • Shafiqul Islam

    Great site you have here! Looking for a quick and easy way to get some money is what most people are looking to do However you tell us that’s not how it works. It takes time and effort and getting an education via Wealthy Affiliate seems like a nice way to do that.Thanks for sharing such a nice informative article. Looking forward to reading some more updates from you soon.

    • Hi Shafiqul Yes many people think that the internet is a way to get-rich-quick but that is just not true. The only people getting rich quick are the scammers who push this delusion and they get rich quick from the very people they are ‘pretending’ to help. Thanks for your comments 🙂

  • Leonard

    Hi Peter,
    This article is really very important to readers especially those looking for ways to earn money online.
    I see this as a good warning signal especially with the pyramid schemes you have shared. Many have been a victim of this schemes.
    The best way to really earn is to have a good training and knowledge about how websites are developed and the ways to earn from it.
    You have presented a well balanced article!

    • Peter

      Hello Leonard Thanks for your comments and yes you are right places like Wealthy affiliate make us less vulnerable to being scammed because of the education we learn to building a sustainable online business but also to spot scams a mile off. 🙂

  • Lynne

    Hi Peter. I receive emails like that daily. I have also been sent messages on Facebook, LinkedIn etc with the same sort of thing. Apparently I also inherit money weekly from wealthy relatives I don’t know on my husbands side that have left me millions.
    I really relate to what you say. Money can be earned online, definitely. But not overnight. It takes dedication, time and hard work.

    • Peter

      Hi Lynne thanks for your comments. Yes Scams have been around for a long time and probably will for some time to come. 🙂

  • Cathy

    There are way too many online scams out there and way too many people who are clueless (and greedy) when it comes to making money on the internet.

    Come to think of it, anyone can have access to the internet and as a result of that, they can do what they want, if they want something bad enough.

    The training program at Wealthy Affiliate is one that will keep the internet a safe place for personal and business use. It’s not really about making easy money or not. It’s about doing things correctly and help everyone achieve better experience on the internet.

    • Peter

      Hi Cathy Absolutely agree and The Wealthy Affiliate education also makes you less vulnerable to scams because you can right through them don’t you think? Anyway appreciate you leaving a comment 🙂

  • Randy

    Hey Peter
    Great article, I didn’t know the Ponzi scheme has been around since 1920, scams are not a new thing at all. But
    there certainly has been an explosion of them over the years. It is a shame that someone would catch a person in a desperate situation and take advantage of them. I’ve seen variations of the scams you mentioned, if someone is asking for money to get money red flags go up.

    • Peter

      Hi Randy Thanks for your comments. Oh yes scams are nothing new they come in all shapes and forms as an example the Government is a big legalized scam there is ha ha – enough said. Fortunately there are places like Weathly Affiliate that is an honest place to get the education we all need to make a living online. Thanks again for your comment. 🙂

  • survival chick

    Hey Peter, nice review of this program! Your post makes a lot of good points. I am wondering, have you been successful using wealthy affiliate?

    I am also wondering how you can figure out if a “make money online” is a scam or not. I tried a few things, most recently drop shipping. I ended up having to pay a few bucks out of my pocket to ship the project from amazon. not good.

    Your advice is appreciated!

    • Peter

      Hello Survival Chick to answer your question “ABSOLUTELY – YES” Prior to WA I had over a dozen affiliate websites and not one made me a penny (because I didn’t know what I was doing) and none ranked in Google. Now I have pages and posts on page one of Google and everyday money comes in 🙂 🙂 so yes it works!! But it doesn’t happen overnight it takes work and commitment but it’s worth it Thanks for your comment 🙂

  • Hi Peter

    I love your site, it is quite neat and clean. 😉

    There are so many scam programs on the internet and I also have been scammed before in the past but it was not a lot of money, so thank God for that, lol. 🙂

    In the past, also, I had receive many emails from the Nigerian and Lottery scams and it can be irritating. 🙁 But fortunately, recently I found out about Wealthy Affiliate and I had been with them for several months. And indeed it is an amazing experience, with such a warm and helpful community and with many tools for anyone who wants to start an online business from scratch. 🙂

    Anyway, I just want to thank you very much for writing this wonderful blog post on “earn money easy online”.

I am pleased you enjoyed this post 🙂

  • Hi Peter, back in the day I was one of those who bought into those chain mail schemes and the David Rhodes letter. How naive!! I guess like others I was trying to make extra money and wanted so much to believe those scammers.

    Your blog post Earn Money Easy Online is an excellent tutorial for anyone who is new to Internet Marketing and/or is looking how to create an online home based business legitimately. It is also for that person who had been discouraged in the past and doesn’t know where to start.

    I truly enjoy reading your “nuggets” of wisdom and love your easy writing style. It is evident that you enjoy teaching. I’m sure that Wealthy Affiliate has been instrumental in your success by the look of this website!

    Thank you for another fabulous post!

    All the best,

    • Hello Angela Thank you for your feedback. Yes it’s unfortunate that there are scammers out there taking advantage of naivety and exploiting our trust.
      I appreciate your comments and I myself am thankful I found wealthy Affiliate to get the education I needed in order to learn how to make money online. I try to inform as people people as I can about the great training they have. Thanks again 🙂

  • Jennifer

    Great Article Peter! I am one of many who have been scammed online, luckily enough I only lost a little bit of money to an online scam.

    But to me I looked at it like a lesson I needed to learn, because at that point in my life I was desperate to find a way to earn money online, and being eager like that only benefits the scammers out there to suck you in, because I didn’t do my research beforehand.

    Luckily enough I stumbled onto Wealthy Affiliate and jumped on the free starter membership that they offer I began working on my lesson’s and felt very comfortable with Wealthy Affiliate and its community as they all were very eager to help me with any questions I needed.

    To me, it was no brainer to sign up as a premium member because it was exactly what I was looking for. And I would recommend WA to anyone looking to learn how to build a business online for sure hands down. Thanks so much Peter for all your information as your article will definitely help someone looking to learn how to earn money online.


    • Hi Jennifer Yes Wealthy Affiliate is an awesome place to get an education about making money online. Thank you so much for your feedback 🙂

  • San

    Hey Peter,

    No need for fact check here, I have had most of these letters and scams attempted to be played on me. The pyramid scheme though is the oldest trick in the book and is sewn into the very fabric of history, there are accounts of it being played even during the Hellenistic period and before.
    Man is the only creature to prey upon itself financially, we don’t take your life just your possessions and pride. It is worse than how animals treat each other.
    Great article.


    • Hey San Thanks for the comments. Yes ripoffs and scams have been going on since… well forever. The internet is no different and that’s why places like Wealthy Affiliate are so awesome because they teach you to how to earn a living scam free. I am endeavouring to let people know about its existence to give hope back to the world of those searching to making money online. Thank you for your feedback 🙂

  • lorraine

    • Hello Lorraine Thank you for your comment. Yes Wealthy affiliate is a great place to get the needed online education to earn a living on the internet. 🙂

  • Jazmin

    I’ve been scammed more times than I’d like to admit. There are some smooth operators out there who know just what to say to suck you into their scams. I was lucky to have found WA, now I’m learning how to do it the right way.

    • Hi Jazmin Yes I could not agree more Wealthy Affiliate is a life saver in the sea of scams. Not only do you get a great education but also the tools and the knowhow to make a great living online. The community is awesome and almost every question you ask get answered straightaway. Where else do you get that sort of ‘family’ huh? Thank you so much for the comments. 🙂

    I have never been scammed…..not because I am smarter than other people but because I use common sense. If it is too good to be true, it is……I am really surprised over how many people fell for this, it’s sad.

    I was lucky and found Wealthy Affiliate first time I was looking to learn about online marketing and since I could try it out for free I went for it. Nine months and 3 websites later I am still there, loving the community, getting help with any problem I have right away AND earning money. I had my first website up and running already while I was still in the first free week. I highly recommend WA to anybody that want to work from home and have their own business online.

    Thank you for a great article Peter, I always enjoy reading your posts.
