Just seen this news article.


Traffic Monsoon billed itself as a way of making money from the internet by generating traffic to websites and getting paid for clicks on adverts.
Doesn't that sound like so much of what some people are selling. WA/GOLDFINGER/Etc.

This website is great for helping to identify stuff that is a bit scammy. Or a lot scammy. It doesn't matter if you are being given 'super secret special early access' or you've watched a video of a bloke saying they've earned £35k a month from it, but for some reason can only afford to use a potato as their video-capture device.

Keep vigilient everyone.

Thanks,

*not the 'forgot to cancel your free trial' type scams ;)

I sure am getting a LOT of YouTube "This is how you can get rich' adverts these days, worryingly from UK vloggers as well! Some are Matched Betting, others are resellers and some are stuff I've never even heard of!!

Good to see it's not just me getting these ads. It's bad enough that they appear on Instagram stories but now appearing on YouTube is right annoying me lol
