    Man....some of these JV's sound sooooo good!

    Just invest a few $$'s maybe a bit of time sit back and watch the $$'s roll in... :)

    Reality 101:

    I'd say, sadly most are scams... Just the way it is. Tread very carefully. If someone says they can make $30K a month and just need $500....use some common sense.

    I've tried a few others but nothing comes off. (so far) People either drop it and lose interest or they were talking boll***s to start with and cannot produce what they claimed...

    I still think you might hit a great J.V. from time to time...like 1:100. You have to do your D.d. and be prepared to walk away from most offers.

    Any one had great long term success with a JV yet? I am losing all faith in this section every day...

    Yes, I can't say it is exactly from the jv section but through the forum itself. Made not only business partners but more importantly friends for life.

    Both I am looking every day....kind of got in with a few only for them to peter out mostly. One minute they are as keen as mustard next you can't get a hold of them.....no cash lost...Still looking. But I do see many scams. I am just saying to newbies it must look like a chocolate factory at times....

    I mean the Ebay one weas a classic. I would have fallen for thet but he never got back in touch with me...thank god.

    yeah I'd say. Well done....or was it luck? Any how you did it. Repeatable? Scaleable, long term? That's important....

    Agreed, so many just give me a skeevy feeling when I read them. I don't truly know how many are scams... Probably more that people think making money online is dead-simple and that anyone can do it. Then they have a "great idea" that they haven't tried.

    God, I've seen plans that ranged from the great all the way down to people filling out their own CPA ads.:rippedhan But that's not just JV...

    I've had two people scam me on services and several waste my time. After all the sh*t I got last time I posted a JV, I'm sticking with service trade JVs or money up-front. Seriously not worth the hassle unless it's a very finite agreement and/or in writing.

    My biggest gripe is that no one (!) seems to want anything in writing. They could have like 5 posts, no feedback, and be like "Give me $500 bucks, but I won't give you my name, email, phone number, skype address or any identifying characteristics." Pass.
