Need Money Scam: Quick Proft Kit

The Quick Profit Kit is the latest scam on the "post links on Google" product which claims it is a free* product, but actually has high hidden monthly fees. Read the full details here now.

Note: This product is making the rounds again in January 2009. Read the fine print here before purchasing Quick Profit Kit With Google!

Another fake news site, News18TV, under the heading 2009 Career Trends, claims out of work mom Marie Thompson is making up to $25 for each "link she posts on Google". What's more, Thompson shows visitors the site a copy of a check she received from Google for posting links. Thomspon says she got started posting links on Google after getting the Quick Profit Kit.

Here is the real story. Google does not pay anyone to simply post links. Second, the check shown is for Google Adsense and was lifted from somewhere on the Internet. Marie Thompson did not earn that AdSense check posting links.

Further, the ad, because this is not a news story, but an advertisement, claims that the Quick Profit Kit was *free according to Thompson (who is probably fake as well).

Visitors can click any of the multiple links on News18tv which takes them to a sign up site for the Quick Profit Kit.

The sign up form site, QuickProftiKit -

- Makes it very clear they are not associated with Google (despite what the News18TV ad said).

- QuickProfitKit lets buyers know that the trial is not free* (the ad said it was).

- That QuickProfitKit cannot guarantee how much buyers can make with their product (the ad said up to $25 per link)

But the QuickProfitKit does not say there are other monthly charges which are hidden in the Terms and Conditions.

Let's look at what those charges are..

Quick Profit Kit is not free. The Trial period costs money and is only two days:

Upon registering, the credit or debit card that you provided will be charged a non-refundable processing fee of Two Dollars and Ninety-Five Cents ($2.95) ("Processing fee") for your initial two (2) day trial

Then, after the short two day trial, the real monthly charges kick in automatically:
If you do not cancel your Trial Membership during the applicable two (2) day period your Credit Card will be charged Seventy-Nine Dollars and Eighty-Six Cents ($79.86) ("Monthly Access Fee").

If you want to avoid that high monthly fee, you must cancel during the trial period:

If you decide to cancel your Membership prior to the expiration of the two (2) day Trial Membership period, your Credit Card will not be charged the fee of Seventy-Nine Dollars and Eighty-Six Cents ($79.86)

But you must contact Quick Profit Kit during their hours of business at the number provided:

contacting Quick Profit Kit™ via telephone at (866) 451-4235, Monday through Saturday, 8:00 AM – 9:00 PM, EST. Sunday, 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM.

The Quick Profit Kit, despite what the ad says on News18TV, is not free, is not associated with Google and does have a high monthly fee if the buyer does not cancel before the short, two day trial period is over. Buyer beware.

This site does not sell the products in question here. If you purchased this product and would like a refund or have questions about the product, please return to the website you purchased the product from and read the Terms of Service for company contact information.
