If an online business opportunity seems too good to be true, ask yourself:

– If this is so profitable, why do they need me? Why are they cutting me, a complete stranger, in on it?

– Am I being offered riches without any corresponding skill or training on my part?

– What value would I add?

– Why would someone pay me for this?

Does it require any real work on my part?

– Am I being pressured to make a decision right now?

– Where can I find an independent evaluation?

– Could I get the knowledge offered here for money elsewhere for free?

– Is this a scam?

Remember, if something seems too good to be true, it probably is.
