You will find variations of wording that follows the above links. All of these links, take you to the same looking page. By the way, these sites change business names more often than changing socks. All of which are work from home online jobs frauds. Lately it has been the same person that seems to be offering the program, “Kelly Simmons”.

Dead Giveaways On This Work At Home Scam

Usually, you are lead into her first page that look like a professional newspaper article. The design and look really seems official. But this is where you as the consumer need to apply a little detective work like Lt. Columbo..

Notice the article is by Amanda Winston, a Consumer Trend Investigator. Go look her up, she is fake as this news article. In fact, this name appears in many other scams to promote authenticity.




Fake News Endorsements

Here is a “play on words” trick, that isn’t usually caught. You have in the top right corner or anywhere on the page really. It states, “Work From Home Opportunities Have Been Featured On”. They use quite a few main media logos such as CNN, Fox News, ABC and more.

Just about all main news medias have talked about “Work From Home Opportunities”. However, if you notice, there is no claim that this program is the one that was referred too. It is just a plain generic statement that could refer to any program.

You will find this video clip on most of these Kelly sites. The clip is from a news reporter, talking about work at home jobs. However, I do not think this is a “Fake News Report”.

If you pay attention, it is like the “Work From Home Opportunities” statement, It doesn’t refer to this program at all. It is a clip that Kelly Simmons has used to help promote her work at home scams. If you watch and listen to it, there is no mention or reference to this offer.


They Have To Admit To Their Lies

They also admit under their Terms of Service, (TOS), that they are not affiliated or supported by any news media or publication. You can read this under “Warranties” on their TOS, (Terms of Service).



If you read these work from home scams sites TOS. You will see, they openly admit that names and stories are not necessarily real. They have to include that for legal reasons. They just don’t expect anyone ever to actually read it or understand it.

Is The “Limited Positions Left” Really True?

If you notice, you have the intimidating counter for how many spots are left for you to grab this awesome opportunity. I have personally seen this program since 2013, and so far they haven’t run out of spots yet. This is another tactic to push you into buying into this work at home scam.



Fake Testimonials

Even the testimonials are fake. They have used stock photos from companies like Shutterstock, and like in this photo, Snapixel. TIP: If ever curious, right click on a picture and save it to the desktop. Open a Google search in Images. Drag the image into the search field. The results will show you other sites the image is placed.



Is There A Real Job?

Sadly there is not a real job. All you will get is some lame outdated training that really won’t help you. This is provided you get anything at all. In order to be a success working from home, you either work for a real company or run your own business. This scam offers neither one of these opportunities.

Make Money Posting Links – LIE!!!

It is a lie telling you that you can make money posting links, there is no such job. The closest job for posting links is a ‘Social Media Manager“. As a SocialMedia Manager, you can work for a company or yourself. However, this job is more than just posting links. A Social Media Manager updates and answers messages on other people’s or company’s social accounts like Twitter and Facebook.

Another clue to this being fallacious is, the amount of money they claim you will make. To make as much as $8000 in your first month, is difficult for an experienced marketer. Awesome as $8000 per month sounds, it just isn’t going to happen. There are real companies looking to hire people to work from home, check them out HERE

Here Is What You Get For Your Money

This work at home scam, with all its different names and avenues, is running from $67 to $97. What you get, is nothing for your investment. The 30 day money back guarantee is also unobtainable. Be sure to read the details in the fine print.

They don’t stop at the one time purchase fee, there are “up-sells”. Not only will you go through up-sell pages, your inbox will get blown up. There will be more up-sells and product offers,which again, are scams. Oh, did you forget you had to give them a phone number?

Not only do they bug the crap out of you through emails, they also sell your phone number to other solicitors. Then you get spam on you phone as well. So what you get for your money, is a lot of aggravation, and no real training or support to help you make a real income from home.

Bottom Line

This Work At Home Scam that Kelly Simmons is constantly running, has all the signs you should look for in any offer. Any time the offer has limited spaces or a limited time offer, it is either fake or an unethical tactic to push you into the product.

Always look at the testimonials, search the images to see what other sites they are on. Pay attention to wording in endorsements. Always stop before going too far into a product, and look for reviews on the product. Also do reviews on the author or person of the product. It doesn’t hurt to review the reviewer as they can be fake or collaborators.

This offer is one you should stay away from. I wouldn’t trust using a credit card to test it or try it out. It has been around for years and what you get in return is nothing.
