Need Money: Google Money Tree Scam

Boy this one takes the cake. Lots to report on the Google Money Tree and why you need to avoid it like the plague.

First, read the small print folks!

Google Money Tree is another "make money off Google" program. Users are lured in with a "only $1.95 to get started" promise which turns out to be a one time shipping and handling plus a 7 day trial period.

The problem is many buyers never receive anything shipped to their address.

What's more, is the entry fee is also for access to a "members only" area which many times, again, is never delivered to the buyer.

Finally, after the trial period, the buyer's credit card on file is charged for continued monthly membership. Often this fee is in excess of $70.00 a month! If you never received any mailed materials or email describing access to the system, this is a big ripoff.

But wait, there's more!

Google Money Tree is running a number of banner ads on big name websites like The Huffington Post and look whose likeness they used in the ad! Jeremy Shoemoney Shoemaker! One of the biggest names in affiliate and pay per click marketing. Boy is he PO'd!

This is one guy you don't want mad at you!

Read the small print for Google Money Tree (if you can find it) under terms and conditions.

I did, and there is no mention of recurring billing. All of these products charge a recurring monthly fee.

Also, the T&C I read had the company behind GMT listed in the Philippines. Nice country, but U.S. law (or the country you come from) probably has zero jurisdiction in The Philippines. That means no recourse your money goes bye-bye.

Google Money Tree is under investigation, however, by the Texas Attorney General at least, and I am sure other states and locations as well.
