EDIT on 23/9/14: The initial 2 websites I have reviewed are now down. Users are now redirected to a new site called securinghomeincome, which is TOTALLY the same thing as everything I have mentioned in the review below.
EDIT: 21/9/15: All the websites appear to be on another domain. Let me know in the comments below if you encountered the website with the latest URL! (With credits to you too!)
Work from home with Facebook!
Recently while surfing Facebook, I happen to always come across advertisements promoting a program called Facebook Millionaire. There are various advertisements such as promoting ‘useful articles’ to make money, and having job openings and are hiring people for a work at home scheme.
The Facebook Millionaire system claims to have made people money through their ‘easy to use home kit‘ and a lot of people have succeeded with it. To see if it was true, I decided to find out more about the program to see if it was legit.
The Advertisement website
One of the advertisement brought me to this website (Edit: It was also taken down), which has a news article about how Facebook is offering work at home positions to make money from home.
The moment I opened the website, I was looking at a website that seem to look like it originated from Facebook. From the layout and everything, it does look convincing and looked like a legit opportunity.
What I noticed is that it is localized for my country as well. However, that mean there should be another website with the exact same layout but different domain name targeting other country users out there.
Reading through the website, they seem to have mention that Facebook have released a work at home program, and you have to buy a work at home kit to start using it. After using it for one week, you can make your first $1,000.
However, is it really legit?
After going through the whole website, all i could think was: ‘Nope, this is full of BS.” There are so many warnings on this website that I immediately know it was a scam.
Even though it was a very well designed and convincing website, this advertisement website provide mostly false and misleading information.
Here are some warning signs to watch out on the website:
1. The links on the website.
One thing I noticed about the website is that all the links they provide eventually all lead to their sign-up page, which require you to pay the small fee of getting their work at home kit. It does seem sketchy as there are no other places they can link to back up their validity of the program.
2. The video on their website
There seem to be a video talking about Work at home programs by ABC, however the video (EDIT: Also removed from youtube for suspected scam, deception) does seem questionable. Is it really a video that originated from ABC?
Also, looking at the comments on the video itself tells a lot.
“This is a scam. I’m one of the victims”
“this scam borrowing footage from the abc news.”
“I am going to report your video and make sure it is taken down from this site”
I don’t believe I have to say more, but these are real users actually speaking up against the video. Not to mention the massive down likes on the video itself says a lot too.
3. The comments on the website
At the bottom of the website, there seem to be real users that have used the system and are talking positive things about it. However, when I wanted to add a comment or like a comment, it does not work at all as it is not clickable.
The only thing that I could click on were the user profiles, which directed to the actual profile of the user. It does seem like the profiles were taken random and used by the company without their consent.
The timing for ‘last posted’ is static and does not change as well. Refreshing the page after 5 minutes, it still shows the users posted the same amount of minutes ago.
EDIT on 19/11/14: A user, Raj, has shown me the Indian website of the comments section and it looks exactly the same!
Compare this picture to the screenshot above, the texts are almost the same. Same number of likes, same ‘minutes ago’, same reply with screenshot posted. What Sara Malik mentioned does not even tally with the screen shot at all too.
Clicking on any of the link on the advertisement website brings me to a website that asks you to key in your Name and E-mail to see if you qualify for the program.
After keying in a random name and e-mail, I was led to the next page that showed I qualify for the program.
They make the program sound exclusive, and even give you a time limit to secure your ‘spot’ which does not give you much time to think. Many people actually fall for this simple trick which are used by these companies, as they are given the illusion of missing out of a great opportunity once the time is up.
The Company behind it
Searching up the company brings up a lot of information. For starters, their main website looks rather sketchy as well. It seems you can’t do anything with the website as you can’t register on it as well, and their contact detail is exactly the same as Facebook Millionaire’s one.
It is exactly the same E-mail as published in Facebook Millionaire page. Isn’t it really funny for a company to use the same E-mail for seemingly two different products?
Besides, as you can see, there are only 2 tabs on the website and you can’t exactly do anything on the website at all. I am assuming that if you signed up for Facebook Millionaire, you can access your log in here too.
Costs of Facebook Millionaire
One thing I realized is that the introductory price is actually S$5 (US$4) only. It seems like a very small amount for an investment, but reading the fine print on the sign up page reveals more information.Apparently the initial payment is just for a 7 days only, which is not stated anywhere but the clause here. After which, you will be billed at S$110 (US$88) per month to keep your subscription. That is a very hefty cost to pay for not knowing what you will even get!
This is really one of the sketchy ones, which does not inform you about the price at all unless you read the clause closely.
Remember that if you need to pay for a product initially when signing up, it is usually a scam.
What Others are saying
Searching up the company itself, it seems like it is a scam company. Based on Scambook, there seem to be a lot of users that reported on Facebook Millionaire being a scam.
These reports are rather recent, being 1-2 weeks from writing of this post. This shows that the scam is working and is still going strong.
What I noticed is that most people did not realize the additional payment like I mentioned earlier in the clause. These 3 comments above are just example of people that did not read the product properly at all, but I don’t blame them as it wasn’t made obvious at all.
Other users reported having difficulty cancelling their subscription, and some were even continued to billed after closing their account.
2. Complaint Board
This user confirms most of what I have mentioned above: Not knowing what the product was and being charged extra money after the initial payments. There even seem to be up selling involved too, asking the user to purchase another product after buying the initial product.
3. Best Hosts Ratings
One other website I noticed is from Best Host Ratings, with this user mentioning how the company changed names and was previously called prcwebtools. Like the other reports above, the user was charged additional after the initial payments and are unable to get back their money.
The Company operate under different names!
I mentioned above that the advertisement and website was targeted to people from my country.
Changing the URL link a little, I managed to the same advertisement but targeting users of a different country. However, I was directed to a different website, with a company that operated under a different name.
It is essentially the same product, but re-branded under a different name. I noticed that the product have been called a lot of different names such as Facebook Millionaire, Facebook Fortune, Group Deal Tools, Internet Millionaire, Precision Web Tools.
However, they are all the same product with the same company behind it as well. Even the contact page looks exactly similar to Facebook Millionaire’s one, with the e-mail of GroupDealTools listed instead.
My Final Thoughts
When I was going through this whole review, I am really saddened by the amount of users getting scammed as it really looked like a legitimate product. The company that is behind this product did a very good job in convincing the users to sign up for such a bogus scam.
To conclude this, are all work at home jobs a scam? I am afraid that 99% of the programs out there are, promising users quick money with minimal work, just like Facebook Millionaire offered. These are usually false dreams that end up biting users that are unaware of it.
Just remember that to make money, you will need to put in hard work into it. There is no easy money out there, despite many people telling you that and asking you to buy their products that make money easily.
Facebook Millionaire is one product you definitely want to stay away from. Everything about the website seems questionable and smells like a big scam right from the beginning.
