Facebook Fortunes Program

How The Scam Works:

(with video below) You might have heard about the Facebook Fortunes Program, empowering people to make money from the comfort of their home. The program promises to bring you in thousands of dollars a month. You are required to open the application page, then asked to provide your name and email address to "check availability".

Then third party validations, such as references of the program being featured on CNN, USA Today, NBC, and FOX, might make you trust the legitimacy of it, so you submit your information. But rest assured, that is a scam. How does it work?

After you submit your information for availability, the next page will then pop up congratulating you on being eligible. That's when you are invited you to download a 'Facebook Millionaire' kit (or having a different name) for only four dollars. However, little do you know that your credit card will be charged $94 per month for continued access.

The thing is, tricksters even put this charge on the fine print as well as a "Results Might Vary" disclaimer -- so you can't really blame them! Since very few people read the fine print, the "money-making machine” is not them, but the scammers themselves. All the best-kept secrets of marketing on the Internet are still to be discovered.

Crooks advertise the bogus program using terms such as "Facebook Fortunes Home Income Flow" or "Home Job Institute". Displaying a bunch of fake Facebook likes and comments, as well as phony news articles where this program is featured, criminals lure victims to submit their credit card numbers and charge massive amounts on the spot.


How To Avoid The Facebook Fortunes Program Scam:

Facebook does not have or feature this program. It's a fake campaign made by crooks. Ignore the "Make Millions From The Comfort Of Your Home" deals, especially if they come with a "Limited Positions Available" tag. Do not send any money for any wonder money-making kits online.

Always do your research and work only for legitimate employers. If you are really looking for a job and seek to make some money online until you find the next ideal job, there a couple of companies that are trustworthy and can offer you great opportunities:
