    So as I'm absolutely enjoying and loving my journey through IM, I had wanted to ask my friends here at BHW what they thought of in regards to some of the more 'Alternative' ways to make money online that are both White and Black hat.

    As I'm sure most of you have seen (or maybe done), I'm talking about some of the more different forms of making money that you see on Social Media. What I'm referring to specifically are the MCAs (Motor Club of America), the 'Email Processing' deals, Money Flipping, etc that you see on Social Media.

    Have any of you ever tried any of them? Any successes or failures? Interesting twists you put on them?

    Of course, if you don't want to share specific twists I understand. I know a few people who make 'okay' money with MCA specifically, but I wanted to hear the thoughts/opinions of my fellow IM'ers here at BHW on these 'Alternative' online money making methods.

    The "money flipping" one is fraud, MCA is MLM garbage and the make 25.00 for every email you process is an outright lie.

    But other than that they are outstanding.

    It blows my mind that people are actually stupid enough to fall for the money flipping thing.

    Couldn't agree more, especially about MCA being MLM garbage, although the email processing thing (while a load of bs) is technically true, you're just selling a document that teaches you to do the same thing that got you.

    I know Money Flipping is fraud, but didn't know if anyone here did that or like a variant.

    But yeah, my personal thoughts on the three were pretty much the same.

    Couldn't agree more. It takes a special kind of stupid IMO lol.

    Yeah dude, I see it everywhere on IG. Especially celeb pages. I remember when Green Dot had 'cancelled' the MoneyPak deal and did a 'Reload at the Register' instead of a physical card, but then they brought it back? Fucking weird. The majority of the Money Flip scams I see seem to focus on Western Union and Moneygram now.

    Yeah pretty much, although to be fair, I have seen some people make decent money with MCA. Whether the product is shit or not, they still made money. Interestingly enough, we promote CPA offers where the person doesn't get the product at all, soo idk about me myself taking the particularly 'moral' road here.

    I either started or legitimately took over close to 50 FB groups over the past couple of years with many that would do well with the MCA deal and every time I look it over I just can't get past that it is not that good a product and your "wealth" is build on the backs of many in your MLM downline as opposed to you offering a product or service that has value attached to it that equals the cost.

    I know I'd make very good money with it but it is such a garbage way to make a buck and I can't get past those two points.

    I agree with you and am right there with you -- not that great of a product, particularly in comparison to its competitors (AAA). And I think you're confusing MCA with something else, there's no downline deal there I don't think. It's just straight marketing the services/business for the $80 commission on it. I don't think you get paid outside of that $80 commission per signup. Could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it's just the one-time sale money.

    Btw, anyone remember WakeUpNow? :D

    There is surely a downline aspect to it and yeah, Triple A is so much better at such a reduced cost.

    Ah, did not know that. Now I REALLY think you should have went that way with your FB groups lol (jk). Triple A is indeed worlds better and cheaper. Don't know how they really get that off lol.

    And wow, can't believe you hadn't heard of WakeUpNow. Was pretty hype a couple of years ago and was prob the biggest MLM crock ever. Had a hell of a rise during it's years alive. Business died particularly when ex-CEO Kirby Cochran had stolen a boatload of money from like everyone.
