The Internet Scams Anonymous (ISA) Groups
The Internet Scams Anonymous (ISA) Groups
Ownership of our Internet Users Handbook is supplemented by the added benefit of communications with link minded internet users, both seasoned and newbies with free membership in one or more of our Internet Scams Anonymous (ISA) currently located throughout the internet on several Social or Social Business Networks. See Below
These groups are Anonymous Groups because few of us will admit out mistakes and even fewer of us will learn from them. Yes, I too have been a victim. My experiences, lessons and research are included throughout this Handbook. The most basic lesson that I overlooked was my own failure to do my own Online Due Diligence; something that I had done for years and helped others do offline. Second, I initially succumbed to the temptation of the online wealth headlines. If they can make that kind of money, why can’t I? Finally, it became research, a challenge and a campaign to help others.
To-date, nearly $70,000 has been invested in research of various scams, new programs, etc. so that you do not have too. Today, we have and enjoy thousands of members; both newbies and seasoned professionals all sharing and helping fellow members avoid the scams while doing business online.
Regardless of whether we are an individual or a business, we always have a monetary need which scammers love to play to as they take our money. Most often it is fast money to them and none for us. Elsewhere in this Handbook, we speak of the senior’s trust in what they read, and the false promises offered by the Scammers. Online, we can forget the “put it in writing for me”.
Our Group Members Along with the Internet Users Handbook help other Members Learn to Recognize and Avoid Internet Scams Online While Doing Business.
With the number of New Internet Users or Newbies is growing at more than 44% per year,
these groups are a powerful aid to those joining us online. We are pleased to announce continued growth of The Internet Scams Anonymous (ISA) Groups with the addition of several new sites. Our first free group was formed with Swom after nearly 2 years of research into internet scams, fraud and online crimes.
In as much as we all are either starting, growing or diversifying our business online, Scam Awareness, Recognition and Avoidance should be one of our main concerns – so “Get Involved”
Get involved may take several forms:
- Prepare and educate yourself - through the use of our Internet Users Handbook and free membership in or ISA Groups
- Get involved in our various groups; share your experiences, problems, etc. with your fellow members
- Become an affiliate and help share and spread the word, although recommended, you do not have to buy the Handbook to become a ClickBank Affiliate). On the other hand, I personally want to buy a car from someone that knows what is under the hood or bonnet.
- Websites, blogs, articles, etc. can all improve their ranking with likes, Google + and Alexa Reviews. Be generous, we are not selling matrixes or HYIP here; we are selling one of the best Handbooks on the internet about avoiding scams online while doing business.
- Be generous and support us with your likes, comments and motivate others to join our worthy cause rather picking up the next big thingy to come along
Our ISA Groups are throughout the internet on several Social Business Networks. Of course all networks are not the same and have different features and opportunities to brand yourself and advertise your business. Their reach differs, enabling us to get more unique members located all over the world. We often share information between the groups to maximize the benefit to all members.
These are NO SPAM groups closely monitored by myself and our membership. Opinions, How to, tips, new information, etc. may be freely shared
May 2012 Our Free to Join Handbook and ISA Groups are currently located:
As you can see, we are reaching pretty wide and varied sites to get our Scam Avoidance message to as many members as we can manage. Most are selected for various features, target membership, some pay, some do not, most of all we are looking for EYEBALLS. New moderators are certainly welcome.
The quality of participation in these groups varies as do the sites themselves. Most social or Social Business Networking sites are far from Spam or Scam free, for example, HYIP programs are widely spread, through their own groups and posts. Education is certainly a life-long endeavor as newbies join the internet for instant gratification for their financial situation, only to find themselves in further trouble. “Never invest more than you can afford to lose.”
Out of this broad range of sites and groups, of particular note is the efforts made by Sean North, Dave Gilbert and staff of the Kooiii Business Co-Operative (or Kooiii and the gang) that aggressively monitor and seek to keep their site and resources Scam free. Their objectives are appreciated and at the risk of a reduced membership base. We support their cause as we try to educate all members regarding spam and scams. Come join Arthur Webster, an active participant there.
Our best performing ISA Group is found on ApSense founded by Wincer and closely monitored by Radek and Neville, names that come to mind, but I regret that I must have overlooked someone. I thank them for their active business, innovative site and support.
