You may have noticed a recent explosion of ads for online money making systems known as "Twitter Cash", "Twitter Cash Machine" and "Fast Twitter Profits". The ads suggest that "Twitter is Hiring" and that you can make $10,000 a month with very little effort. If you click on the ad, you are taken to what looks like an online newspaper detailing the personal rags-to-riches story of someone using the Twitter Cash system (also known as Fast Twitter Profits or Prosper Twitter Cash) to generate thousands of dollars a month simply by "posting links on Twitter" or "submitting small texts and ads online on Twitter". So, what's the deal? Can a little bird really peck away at the keyboard "tweeting" its way to over $10,000 a month in income or is Twitter Cash a lame duck scam designed to trick you out of your hard earned money? Well, after a little bit of searching on Google, I confirmed what I had already suspected. There are actually dozens of people with these online newspaper style sites telling their Twitter Profits rags-to-riches story. And, unfortunately, the stories are word for word identical. The only thing that changes is the person's name and picture. Having confirmed that the personal success stories were fake, I did a little further digging and discovered that the whole Twitter Cash system is a scam. Here's how the scam works. After the scam artist details their Twitter Cash success story, they tell you to click to order your free Twitter Cash Starter Kit (just $1.95 for shipping!) so that you too can earn $10,000 plus a month in Twitter Cash. When you click to order your Twitter Cash Starter Kit, you are taken to another site where you complete a short online order form and give your credit card number to pay for that measly little $1.95 shipping charge. Here's where the huge rip-off happens. It turns out that the Twitter Cash kit offer is a 7 day free trial, after which the program starts charging you $47 every month unless you cancel your membership! (So, really, that little $1.95 "shipping charge" had nothing do do with "shipping" and everything to do with getting your credit card number so they could starting charging you the hidden $47 a month later.) So, how do people make money with the Twitter Cash scam system? By signing up to the program, creating their own fake newspaper site and then recruiting more victims to sign up for the "free" twitter cash starter kit. Every time someone else gets sucked in, the scam recruiter gets to share in that $47 charge that the unsuspecting victim ends up getting on their credit card bill. Nice people, huh? Obviously, these Twitter Cash and Fast Twitter Profits systems are something that you should stay far away from. If it's too late and you've already fallen victim to the Twitter Cash scam, cancel your membership immediately. If you have any problems canceling, contact your credit card company.
