Everyone wants to make money. That's a given. And the Internet can present some pretty lucrative possibilities. But it can also create a breeding ground for scammers. Sometimes it's tough to know what a scam is and what isn't. No one can tell you in all honesty that they haven't, at some time in their online career, been taken at least once by a hyped up scam. You have to understand that there are some folks who are a constant source of helpful information, and those that are hanging out looking for the quick cash. While you can make some easy profits doing business on the Internet, you still must be vigilant and careful when buying. The old adage still rings true, especially online: "Let the buyer beware". Plus, when you sell products online, generally start-up costs are much lower than that of a traditional "brick-and-mortar" store. In many cases your monthly costs would be less than going for a night out. So, turning a profit is much, much easier to accomplish.
