This one almost makes me laugh. If you follow my blogs, you know that I began in an effort to make some income off of Adsense while I was blogging. Well about 3 weeks into my journey, Adsense dropped me and gave me no reason and kept the income I had earned. I was sad, but I moved on and discovered the love of blogging. What initially brought me to Adsense was a program that my husband found for me. My Internet Payday by Joel Comm. I started the program because after all it only cost $1.00, yes just 1 thin dollar to do it so what could I lose?
Ok here is where it starts to hurt. I did follow the program, but honestly it didn't pertain to me for the most part, so I learned what I needed to learn just from fellow bloggers and from another group I belong to called Hubpages. I forgot all about My Internet Payday and moved on, until last night when I went to check a suspicious withdrawal on our bank account. Guess what I didn't read the teeny tiny fine print that said: If you don't cancel the program within 7 days, you will be charged $78.64 each month until you do cancel. The only way to cancel is to call them. I am doing that, but I doubt I will ever get my money back. So here is the irony, not only did I not make any money with Adsense but now I lost almost eighty bucks because I was so naive. I feel so stupid and sad and angry all at the same time. So please my friends learn from my mistake. Nothing is ever as it seems. I know that what Joel Comm does is probably legal, but I don't think it is ethical. I think that he assumes that many people are not going to bother to read the fine print and only see the part that says you will have a paycheck in 48 hours. Ok I am done, thanks for reading and beware of get rich quick schemes.
