NeedMoney: Government Grants Scam

You have probably been seeing ALOT of ads that sound like this lately:

"I got my 12K stimulus check and you can too!"

"I get 5K a month from the government. Get your grant money!"

These ads come in the form of banner ads and text ads on many websites. The most audacious one features the likeness of the President. Unbelievable.

If you click on any of these ads, you are taken to a sales page which explains that there are lots of government programs which have grant money available, free for the taking.

The sales page generally features a college or urban kid who explains how he was in debt, had no money and a miserable life until he found out about this free government grant money.

They then go on to explain how they filled out a form, paid a small shipping fee and received some paperwork, which when returned, resulted in them receiving thousands of dollars which never have to be repaid.

Further, many tout this system as part of the current "Federal Stimulus" program of something similar.

Word to the wise:

These programs are scams, every one of them. No this is not a pitch to get you to click on my affiliate link, but a real warning.

You see, most people who visit my blog desperately want to make money. They have bills and mortgages and are in dire financial straights.

Advertisements for "free government money" can sound appealing to anyone needing money. Please avoid this scam.

The perpetrators behind these products only want to harvest your email address, collect a fee (and your credit card information), and continue to charge you monthly for a service which will never send you any funds.

There are no government grants as described in the sales pages. Government grants are carefully screened and distributed to reputable organizations only. Grants are issued to responsible parties who provide detailed financial information and are obligated by law to show how the money was spent and guarantee it was spent on what it was earmarked for.

The government does not hand out money for people to put a roof on their home, buy a new car or pay off their credit card bills.

There are government programs which help people pay for college or technical school, but that money is typically a loan (you have to pay it back) or available only for people of true dire circumstances.

Don't waste your time on this nonsense. Instead, check out reputable affiliate programs with Clickbank and Commission Junction. Build a free blogger site, a Squidoo lens or Hubpage and start marketing a product. Better yet, market several products.

Save your money and avoid any of these "government grant money for free" products. They are all scams.
