Twitter work-at-home scams are all the rage

RIP-OFF ALERT: As social networking gains in popularity, so too does the prevalence of scamsters pushing supposedly amazing work-at-home opportunities.

One company called Easy Tweet Profits claims you can make up to $873/day online. They even claim one person earned $400,000/year using their method of tweeting your way to success. The catch? By signing up for their program you agree to be charged just under $50/month!

There are a whole host of other companies with similar names (usually involving "make money" or "make profits") that suggest social networking can be a cash cow. But their game is all the same.

Whether you're talking about something you see on Craigslist, MySpace, eBay, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter or whatever's the next hot thing, you've got to be wary.
