Why do people say that Youngevity is a scam?
Although Youngevity is considered to be a legitimate company some people are calling it a scam. The reason for this is that Dr. Wallach who is the person behind this liquid mineral supplement had originally spent 40 years researching and observing the effects of different nutrients on animals and therefore they do not consider him to be an expert in human supplements.

The term SCAM in the online world has been loosely translated. By definition, a scam is a quick-profit scheme where a person cheats another individual or group out of money by presenting them with false information during a deal or offer. There are many different types of scams that prey on unsuspe…cting victims. Scammers can approach their victims via email, SMS, and sometimes even a phone to your personal cell number. One example of this is the lottery scam. In this scheme, a person receives news via phone call or email that they have won the lottery and can retrieve the cash prize after submitting a small processing fee. After submitting the fee, the attacker disappears with the money. Another dangerous scam is called phishing, in which the scammer deceives the victim into forfeiting personal information. Phishing scams usually appear in e-mail form and contain links to supposedly authentic websites, such as those containing a bank login form or a credit card company. When clicked, viruses and other malware can enter your system and passwords and other information processed through your computer will be recorded. Fortunately, with adequate skills and proper knowledge you can detect when somebody is trying to cheat you. Make sure you are aware of the major Internet scams and keep your computer up-to-date with proper anti-virus software. (MORE)
cuz they don't want to say yes. Because they don't agree with what people are asking or saying to them.
Hi, this is the same person that posted this question and i just wanted to elaborate: I found an amazing place to live for super cheap, but after receiving this guy's email, i researched this online just to check if it'd be a scam b/c it was too good to be true. I found people in Nigeria are work…ing to scam people of rent money b/c wiring money. I also found another ad online for the SAME house at the a much higher price of $2500/mo. My red flags kept going up from there... read on.... This is what a "Matthew Bush" wrote back to me after I found an ad on craigslist.com for a $1200/mo, 1550 sq ft, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath condo: "Thanks for your email response.The Home is still available for rent for $1200.i am in West African,Nigeria and i will reside here for some time due to my current assignment.And we are on a campaign program to West African,Nigeria .i just need someone with an open heart,love and clean to occupy the home and put all my worries off concerning the maintenance of the home, since i am not residing there for now and presently my house is still available for rent for $1200 (per Month) including the utilities like hydro,washer,electricity and security.note that you are free to go and view the house but you will not be able to see the inside.below is the address to the house... Also the keys to the Home are right here with me, and the lease document. Which i can send to you after all necessary agreement has be accepted. Also i will like you to know that the rent charges is not really the issue ,but your absolute maintenance of my Home , because that is the only valuable property my late father left behind, and it also took him so much time and money to put all those facilities in place.,so i will solicit for your absolute maintenance of this Home and want you to treat it as your own,is that taken,it is not the money the main problem but want you to keep it tidy all the time." And then I asked him about why there were 2 different posts for the same condo at 2 drastically different prices. And i even called the other legitimate post and told them that there was another post for $1200 for the same condo and they said "No, it is $2500." I was thinking, why are there 2 posts and 2 different people trying to sell the same condo.... RED FLAG UP again! and "Matthew Bush" responds: "yeah i also posted that but i need someone to occupy my house urgently..this is why i have to reduce the rent...so dont be worry and get back to me." and then i sent him my rental application which is nothing more than name address, etc. no SSN, credit card #, license #, or anything important like that b/c I'm not that stupid. and he responded with: "Good to hear back from you with the rent application.i will like you to know that i have accept you as my tenant due to the way you soumd. I am really happy you will taking care of my house.i will be sending the keys and lease to you through DHL EXPRESS as soon as you make the deposit payment through western union.so get back if you want me to send you the western union you will sending it into. Thanks and God Bless." How about you stop wasting my time "Matthew Bush" (i doubt that's his real name) and scamming people for their money! especially college students who have no money in the first place, j*ck a**!!!! I can't believe it! I think he's trying to scam me. What do you think? Research it online, i think you'll agree with me! (MORE)
If it's a real job, you won't be required to pay any money. You won't have to buy a sales kit or pay to learn how to do it.
Yes, Be. Productions is a scam. I worked for them as a "Talent Director" and left due to moral differences. They do not have the connections they claim to and are using the names and images of celebrities without their knowledge. "Talent Directors" are kept around based on sales volume and not the t…alent they find. You are tained to sell to everyone. There is no cut before the call back, only strategic scheduling to break down the groups into smaller volumes to lead the people to believe they are the only 6-10% that they claim they call back. They call everyone back. Thousands a week all over the state of California. Don't fall for it. (MORE)
If you receive any kind of correspondence (whether it be by mail, email, phone, etc) saying you won a lottery, prize, etc that you did not purchase a ticket for or ask to be considered, then IT IS PROBABLY A SCAM. Anytime we are offered something for nothing, it sounds too good to be true then IT… PROBABLY IS. If you are asked personal contact information, that's one thing. You should NEVER give your social security number to ANYONE via email. You should be VERY CAUTIOUS about what information you post on the internet. And, if after all of this you are not convinced or you aren't sure, there are websites out there to help you so do your research!! (MORE)

Those who fall for scams can be emotionally scarred. This isbecause scams can take away everything a person owns or send themto jail.
You shouldn't scam people, it is against the Xivio TOS/TOU and you can get muted or banned for doing it.

Stores do not make money by giving it away. And in the unlikely event they wish to give you a shopping spree, they would just tell you to come to their store and pick it up. But instead, you'll be asked - if you respond - to pay a fee, or give personal information, or both. It's a scam.
I have had an email saying that i have inherited money from this bank but think this is a scam please respond?
And do they need you to send a fee to get the money? Or do they need you to send them all your financial information to get the money? When next you talk to them, tell them that you will be happy to receive the funds, and if they'll tell you what bank has those funds, you'll have your bank call the…m and arrange the transfer - so as to save them time and trouble, and avoid there being any "fees". When they won't do it that very standard way, and insist on a fee from you or financial info from you, then you'll know it's a scam. (MORE)
If you have to send them any money at all first, then yes, it's a scam.
The reason is because many companies tend to "imitate" products in the market and base their turnover only on the distributor kits which the new people who joined the business purchase. This creates a wave of enthusiasm in which the companyand the first distributors "make a hit" and disappear from t…he market in a relatively short period of time (not good for the company, the distributors, the industry).

BOTH - I ordered an item Thanksgiving weekend for Christmas. They promise 8-10 days delivery. After no delivery by Christmas, I obviously inquired. So far, this could happen to any buyer and merchant. Now the fun starts. They don't reply to emails or voicemails in a timely fashion. I then get a call… on New Year's eve from a nasty man who basically hustled me in a rude manner, telling me that there was an (1) attempted delivery and the item was returned. He badgered me wanting to know why it wasn't delivered. I said that is my precise question to you. He seemed more annoyed at paying for shipping than pleasing an already disappointed customer. After his continued badgering, I simply hung up. He called me back and started cursing at me to which I replied 'happy new year' and hung up. He then called me back and left a very expletive voicemail (WHICH I SAVED) saying, "maybe you should pay your bills you F___ slimey dirtbag S____ my D______ ". Oh, I forgot to say clickdvdshows had my money a few days after the order date. I did finally get a refund after disputing charge with CC company. Then today, I finally get an email reply apologizing for the delayed order and requesting an alternate address - as if the harrassment and badgering by them never happened. Well, my response to them is 'shove the dvds up your A___'. This company is a bunch of very bad business people at best, and more likely a scam. Unless you want to spend a lot of time disputing your charges with credit card companies, stay clear of 'clickdvdshows'.com. P.S. They are not in the U.S. and they show no respect for any U.S. business law. (MORE)
How can I stop Live PC from saying that I have a virus and wants me to purchase a protection plan with them Is it a scam?
This is a scam. Do not purchase this, and make sure you store no personal info (credit card numbers, bank account details, Social Security Number, etc.) on the computer. You need to scan the computer with multiple programs for removing viruses/malware. I personally got a virus similar to this a…nd removed it using Avast, AVG, and MalwareBites. Still, after doing so, do not store any personal information on the computer just in-case the anti-virus program doesn't detect something. (MORE)
start an event and tell them you can double their money in 2 trades and when they give you the money in the first trade kick them out!
Answer 1: Because I am one of the people that got ripped off $825.00. Answer 2: This IS a SCAM!!!!!!! Our Structural Engineering Company is at and has been at the address of (address deleted) for the past 17 years. No other company has ever been in this suite number. In fact it was created fo…r us when we came to the building 17 years ago. Nor has there ever been a company by the name of AMPREX Lending Group in this building. PLEASE DO NOT SEND THIS COMPANY ANY MONEY!! I have received MANY phone calls of people that have been ripped off by them from the $800's into the thousands of dollars. I have filed a local police report and an FBI report stating this fact. There are now numerous Better Business Bureau Reports, Police Reports, FBI Reports and now I know of a Department of Justice in the State of Louisiana Report filed. (MORE)
While it is normal for any auto place to have complaints, there does seem to be an inordinate number of complaints against Bidic. Fraud, lies and out right rip offs are the chief complaints. Many have complained that the warranty is not as it was represented to them. Others have spoke of being flat… out lied to. Of concern to me, when you enter "Bidic" into a google search, it automatically fills in "Bidic scams". Never a good sign. (MORE)
Because they can, and they have no morals. some people scam people just for the fun, normally when someone is scamming you they say that they come from Nigeria, they also say that they view your profile.let me give you some tips. 1. don't send any money to any that you don't know 2. don't reply… back to their mail just ignore it 3 don't send a picture of you to them because they will use your picture for scamming uses. 4 don't give any body your email address especially when you don't know them 5 avoid dating site like 4ppl.com because scammers love that site 6 never give them you bank account number nor phone number (MORE)
Yes. What they do is charge you interest fees the week AFTER you get your loan. So lets say your spent your entire 1000 bucks the first week because it was an emergency, the following week your bank statement will be -195.00 because they just charged you interest. So not only do you have the -…195.00 because of the interest but there will be MORE money tacked on because of overdraft fees. This company knows the money habits of people which is why they created this scam. I mean they do lend the money no doubt but they dont allow ample time for repayment. Its just a cycle of recurring fees that never ends. SO you end up with more debt than you started with. My suggestion is fine a credit union bank and get a loan the proper way. If just ask a friend for money. If you only need a small amount. (MORE)
Scams online commonly come from Nigeria for high value items, that was widely believed, but with experience and research the rate of online scams is higher in Malaysia and Indonesia. Nigeria can be rated between number 18th - 26th, because IT is just on the embryo stage in Nigeria, whereas it is ful…ly developed in the aforementioned countries. And let me add that Nigerians are the most honest, hardworking and talented people in the world outside corruption. (MORE)

I personally consider this to be a scam as well as dishonest and unfaithful. You're going to get hurt or hurt someones feelings doing this type of thing. You can't love two people and you should always be honest.
No people do not use credit card generators in scams. People find out authentic credit card numbers by theft of credit cards or even scanners that can scan cards in a person's pocket.
3 out of 5 people are scammers and 1 million people get some kind of scam or see one each day.
Such lists, if they exist, should probably themselves be considered suspect. More generally, please understand that any person claiming to be psychic or a medium for money may well be engaging in trickery. There is certainly a long history of this. Mentalists entertain using similar techniques. The …debates start when someone does things that look to the casual observer like mentalism effects but claims that what they do is real. One good test is to see if the person can tell you things about themselves with no prior knowledge whatsoever of you. Be very careful about this. You can even use a false name when booking a sitting. Even better, given the name of a friend whose background you know or you can check. If the reading you get seems more for them than for you, it is very likely you have uncovered a fraud. (MORE)
Gettysburg Address by President Abraham Lincoln: Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation,… or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us-that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion-that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain-that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom-and that government of the people, by the people, for the people , shall not perish from the earth.

Consumers throughout northeast Ohio, who owe utility bills, think they hit the jackpot. A rumor is circulating that President Barack Obama approved $1,000 to pay off bills. It started with phone calls and is now circulating through word of mouth. However, this is not a legitimate offer. There isn't …free money to pay off your bills, so don't fall for this scam. NewsChannel5 spoke with several people who fell for the scam. Times are tough for many people so the thought of free money lured them in. "When the President got elected he gave everyone a stimulus check and I think everyone is believing it because of that first check everybody got," Nancy Rutti said. "Like everybody else I have bills to pay too, and if it was true I would be doing it. I called you guys instead to find out if it's true or not." Rutti said she heard about the scam from a friend who gave her a routing number to use when she paid her bills on the phone by check. To pay by check via phone you also need an account number. People we spoke to said they were told to use the numbers on the back of their social security card. The Social Security Administration said those numbers are security features used to prevent counterfeiting of social security cards. People believed this scam because some northeast Ohio utility companies approved the payments and turned back on lights and reduced bills to $0. Consumers were even given confirmation codes that the payment went through. One woman told us she paid her $400 cable bill, and the cable company told her it would turn back on her TV this week. "I know someone who called that had their lights out. Their lights are on today," Rutti explained. The payments will eventually bounce when the utilities realize the account number is bogus. The routing number is legitimate, but GE Capital is investigating and working with authorities to put an end to this rip-off. It's been making the rounds since spring, hitting various parts of the country. Atmos Energy, based in Dallas, issued a warning to consumers in mid May. The Better Business Bureau is also warning consumers, noting scammers have even visited people in person to get them to believe this rip-off. There is a risk for identity theft with this utility rip-off, plus your bills will be denied and you could be facing more fees for using a fraudulent account. The routing number belongs to GE Capital. The bank reminds consumers to never give social security numbers to someone you don't know. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. One Cleveland woman who wanted to believe this scam said through tears that her hopes were shattered knowing her bills now aren't paid. By Niharika Singh (MORE)
Norman Brockenshire is an independent person, and while he is a reseacher and historian of Mormonism, he does so independently and not in affiliation with or supported by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I see no record of him scamming people out of money, only in that he has sold b…ooks of his ideas. Publishing and selling books is not a scam, as those who buy the book are given something (the book) in exchange for their money. A scam is when one is sold a product that either does not exist or that the seller has no intention of turning over to the buyer. The Church is not protecting him or endorsing his ideas in any way, and if it were known that he was purposely scamming people out of money or publishing books that were false doctrine (rather than personal speculation), he would be excommunicated as per the Church's policy.

Lots of jammers did. Either they are lying or they are really depressed and heart-broken that the rares they were going to give to a sibling or friend is gone. Many jammers that have been scammed don't want to talk about it. I got scammed once. I sent my white bow and arrows and the scammer said she… would give me a headress (which I really wanted to give to my sis!), but she just quickly unbuddied me and went away. Don't fall into the trap like I did. BUT, ONLY TRUST SOMEONE WHO YOU REALLY TRUST, like a close friend. My best bud BPrincess01 told me to send my tail armor so she could try it. She sent me her tail armor and we both tried it out. After that, we were done and looks like it wasn't a scam! After that happened, someone hacked my rare mechanical wings and I got really upset.
