Need Money Scam: Home Business Success System

Ads for the Home Business Success System are popping up this week on popular websites. Don't be fooled - read the fine print and find out the real cost!

The ad was on a popular news site.

"Work At Home Mom Makes $7,197/Month Part-Time"

I clicked over and was taken to a website for News 7 Daily also known as "The Wall Street Gazette News" .com. Again, the "mom" was the nefarious Kelly Richards - the stay at home mom from [YOURTOWN] who makes thousands of dollars a month peddling these "earn money fast" scams.

"Richards" claims she makes money "posting links" "they" give her..

but I can use the internet. I post links that are given to me, I don't even have to sell anything and nobody has to buy anything. They are constantly recruiting people to post links, you should try it."

The product which saved her life she calls the Home Income Kit. I clicked over and found it was a sign up form for something called the Home Business Success System.

The new page offers next to no information how "Kelly Richards" or new buyers will get "links to post". In fact, they don't offer any information about the product at all other than it is sponsored by a company called SMC.

There is an entry form which requires buyers enter their name, email and phone number. At that point, visitors are taken to another website which asks for more information including payment and address. Nothing more except for "Your success is our success" and "Instant access to your own online company" and "No experience neccessary".

But there are payment terms which buyers should be aware of but are often overlooked.

Buyers who give their payment information are charged 9.95 for a 30 day trial to SMC

You have 30 days to receive and review your SMC Business Kit and get comfortable with the program.

After 30 days, a monthly charge will be posted to buyer's account

Afterwards, your membership will remain active with a monthly charge on the credit card provided of $39.95

None of this was mentioned on the sales page with Kelly Richards in fact, she claims the package is only $9.95. And Richards claims that buyers will then get access to links to post and will start making money..

Follow the directions and set up an account. Then you will be given website links to post. Start posting those links. Everything is tracked in a system that will show you how much money you are making(see above image).
(Author's note - the image mentioned is from Google and has nothing to do with anything described in the sales or ad pages)

None of this claim is evident in the sign up form for the SMC Home Business Success System. In the Terms for the Home Business Success System, there is no information about how buyers make money, where they will get "links" to post and what those "links" are for.

Disatisfied customers can cancel their membership by calling SMC..

just notify Member Services at (1-877-523-9088) or go to

This product is another using the same methods as known scam products. Buyer beware!

It was convincing at first but I live in a small town where this person supposedly makes $7000-8000 a month. The street name on the "check" is legit...But not the name! Its a scam!!

Of additional interest: (1) that the "offer" was only good until a date that--no doubt--is always calibrated to be one or two days away; and (2) the "fake" blog posts in a thinly veiled attempt to lend credibility, including an effort to even introduce slight skepticism. I decided to Google their headline/pitch ("Work At Home Mom Makes $7,197/Month Part-Time") and found this. Many thanks!

I looked in to this offer and paid $2.99 for the access. I'm not complaining about that cost because I did it myself. But, then I looked at the site and decided I didn't want anything to do with this outfit so I exited the website. Five days later I was charged %139.99 for the program. I got on the phone with the number that was shown on my bank transaction and came on strong. I was told that I had placed the order and there wasn't anything that they could do about it. I told tham that if they didn't do something immediately that they would be hearing from my attornery. After a minute on hold I was told that the lady's supervisor said that she would authorize a full refund. I asked for all of the info that I could think of and found that the company was in Florida and the billin company was in California. I have since tried to locate the billing company bit no luck. I have located a website for the business, but haven't tried to call them direct yet. Don't know if there is even a telephone number on the site. I have however contacted my bank and will stay on top of this. What a scam. I hope no on every tries to check out these online scams. Thanks for reading.
