How Fake Business Coaches Present and Advertise Scams that are Guaranteed to Make Lots of Money with Guaranteed Money-Making Schemes!

Fake business coaches are a growing problem, and they are becoming increasingly skilled at presenting and advertising their scams. These scams often promise to teach people how to make lots of money quickly and easily, but they are nothing more than a waste of time and money.

How Fake Business Coaches Present Their Scams

Fake business coaches use a variety of tactics to present their scams. They may create elaborate websites that make them look like successful entrepreneurs. They may also give free webinars or seminars where they share some basic business advice, but they always hold back the best information for their paying customers.

Fake business coaches often use fake testimonials from satisfied customers to promote their scam programs. However, these testimonials are usually fake or misleading. Fake business coaches also use social media extensively to promote their scams, such as YouTube and TikTok. They create fake accounts or post sponsored ads that promise to teach people how to make lots of money quickly and easily.

How Fake Business Coaches Advertise Their Scams

Fake business coaches and influencers use a variety of advertising methods to reach potential victims. They may run ads on search engines and social media platforms such as Facebook or LinkedIn. They may also send spam emails or create fake websites that look like legitimate business websites.

Fake business coaches often use persuasive language in their advertising. They promise to teach people how to make millions of dollars or how to retire early. They also claim that their programs are guaranteed to work.

How To Identify A Fake Business Coach Scam

There are a few things you can look for to identify a fake business coach scam:

  • Promises of guaranteed success: If a business coach promises that you will make a certain amount of money or achieve a certain level of success, it is likely a scam. There is no such thing as guaranteed success in business.
  • Upfront fees: Fake business coaches often charge upfront fees for their programs. Legitimate business coaches typically do not charge upfront fees.
  • Testimonials that seem too good to be true: If a business coach’s website or advertising is full of testimonials from happy customers who claim to have made millions of dollars, be wary. These testimonials are often fake or misleading.
  • Vague promises: If a business coach makes vague promises about what you will learn in their program or what results you will achieve, it is likely a scam. Legitimate business coaches will be specific about what you will learn and what results you can expect.

How To Avoid Them!

How to avoid get-rich-quick schemes promoted on social media by fake business coaches, influences, and scammers of all kinds

Social media is a great way to stay connected with friends and family, but it can also be a breeding ground for scammers. Get-rich-quick schemes are one of the most common types of scams promoted on social media, and they can be very tempting to people who are looking for a quick and easy way to make money.

Here are some tips on how to avoid get-rich-quick schemes promoted on social media:

  • Be wary of any investment opportunity that promises guaranteed returns. There is no such thing as a guaranteed investment, and any investment that promises guaranteed returns is likely a scam.
  • Do your research before investing in anything. This includes researching the company, business coach, influencer, or individual promoting the investment, as well as the investment itself. You should also read reviews from other investors.
  • Beware of any business opportunity that requires you to pay an upfront fee. Anything that requires an up front fee is a business that is in business to sell you ‘hot to” materials and has never made money any other way.
  • Be wary of any money-making ideas or opportunity that is too good to be true. If an opportunity seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Here are some additional tips to help you identify and avoid get-rich-quick scams on social media:

  • Look for red flags. Some common red flags of get-rich-quick scams include:
    • Promises of guaranteed returns
    • Upfront fees
    • High-pressure sales tactics – limited time to take advantage of the offer or discount
    • Testimonials that seem too good to be true
    • Lack of transparency about the investment or the company promoting it
  • Be careful who you follow on social media. Only follow accounts that you trust. If you see someone promoting a get-rich-quick scheme, unfollow them immediately.
  • Report scams to social media platforms. If you see a get-rich-quick scam on social media (post, page, or ad,) report it to the platform. This will help to protect other people from being scammed.

Here are some specific examples of get-rich-quick scams that are commonly promoted on social media:

  • Forex scams. Forex scams are another common type of scam promoted on social media. These scams typically involve fake forex trading platforms or brokers. They may also involve fake forex trading signals or systems.
  • MLM scams. MLM scams, also known as pyramid schemes, are another common type of scam promoted on social media. These scams involve recruiting people into a multi-level marketing company and then pressuring them to sell products or services to their friends and family.

But there are literally tens of thousands o f them.

If you are unsure about whether or not an opportunity is legitimate, it is best to err on the side of caution and avoid it. There are many legitimate ways to make money, but there is no such thing as a get-rich-quick scheme that is guaranteed to work.

What To Do If You Think You Have Been Scammed By A Fake Business Coach

If you have been scammed, you should report the scam to the police and to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). You can also file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.

If you think you have been scammed by a fake business coach, there are a few things you can do:

  • Contact your bank or credit card company to do a chargeback. If you paid for the business coach’s program with a credit card, you may be able to file a dispute and get your money back.
  • File a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. The Better Business Bureau is an organization that tracks complaints against businesses. Filing a complaint with the BBB can help to warn other people about the scam.
  • Report the scam to the authorities. If you think you have been the victim of fraud, you should report it to the local police AND to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) – see reporting.AgainstScams.org for details.

Remember

Fake business coaches, crooked influencers, and scammers are a growing problem, and they are becoming increasingly skilled at presenting and advertising their scams. It is important to be aware of the red flags to look for so that you can avoid being scammed. If you think you have been scammed, there are steps you can take to get your money back and to warn others about the scam.

If you are unsure about whether or not a business coach is legitimate, it is best to err on the side of caution and avoid signing up for their program.

SCARS and the members of the SCARS Team do not engage in any of the above modalities in relationship to scam victims. SCARS is not a mental healthcare provider and recognizes the importance of professionalism and separation between its work and that of the licensed practice of psychology.

SCARS is an educational provider of generalized self-help information that individuals can use for their own benefit to achieve their own goals related to emotional trauma. SCARS recommends that all scam victims see professional counselors or therapists to help them determine the suitability of any specific information or practices that may help them.

SCARS cannot diagnose or treat any individuals, nor can it state the effectiveness of any educational information that it may provide, regardless of its experience in interacting with traumatized scam victims over time. All information that SCARS provides is purely for general educational purposes to help scam victims become aware of and better understand the topics and to be able to dialog with their counselors or therapists.

It is important that all readers understand these distinctions and that they apply the information that SCARS may publish at their own risk, and should do so only after consulting a licensed psychologist or mental healthcare provider.
