These "get rich quick" scams have become so pervasive that in the US the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) established Project False Hopes in 2006, with federal and state law enforcement sweeping on bogus business opportunity and work-at-home scams. The four biggest of those scams cost American consumers more than $30 million.
FTC Chairman Deborah Platt Majoras says, "If a business opportunity promises no risk, little effort, and big profits, it almost certainly is a scam. These scams offer only a money pit, where no matter how much time and money is invested, consumers never achieve the riches and financial freedom promised."
