In the Fraudsters database you can read records of bad GPT and "work at home" schemes, visitor comments on these schemes and even add your own. Other unethical make-money-online sponsors including MLM companies will be added in the nearest future. If you know of some pesky fraudster you are welcome to include it in the database via this form.

Articles in MLM scams explain how difficult it has become to make money with multi-level marketing plans and reveals that MLM concept is too old and inefficient to seriously plunge into it.

Finally hop on to Work at home to find out the truth about envelope-stuffing opportunities, typist and assembly jobs, currency cartel and "free stuff" traps. The section is planned for development and many more schemes will get a debunking soon - make sure to visit this section again.
