Let's start off by giving an example of how to detect a fake site. The site below is a money-grabbing site. It appears to be a way to trick people into entering their credit card information and paying $2,500 to $74,000 in return for some kind of mentorship and social media boost, yet there are no videos on how they do what they do. There are no representatives who show up on camera. No influencers backing it. You'd think they'd make a TED talk about what they do with all that success. There are lots of fake people and companies out there and Wealth Social looks like one of them.
On their Instagram stories, they only show a screen recording of the result of what they do but never the process. They'll pressure you into doing it as if there is no time to spare and that you're going to change your life once you've spent this money. It's so shady.
Sketchy Payment Process
Without even speaking to anyone or looking at what they have to offer, by clicking "Get Started", you are somehow able to pay them money right off the bat. No video demonstration, no online customer support, no phone customer support, no testimonials, no headquarter or office address. If they have all this money, why haven't they purchased Ad space on sites like Vox Media, or Forbs?
Why? ...because they can't.
What company allows you to pay them without speaking to someone with no guarantee or way you'll be contacted? How will they know who made the payment? Seriously, WTF is going on?
