How to tell if a site is a scam?

Bad English. Really, really bad Ingrish.

Like what they posted in their About page on their blog:

hello affiliated, welcome, we are here working to create ours blog and to have always informed it.

And email that makes no sense:

My name is Jaime, Owner of (sorry, you won’t get mention on my blog)

I will want to comprise of your options to make money within your Web,

also I want to speak of your Web in our Web, to construct something more that simple links.

I am will wait to your answer

Whoa!!!!! How do I trust a company like yours? You sound like a Nigerian to me. Didn’t they teach fullstop and capital letters in elementary school?

So, ladies and gentlemen, don’t be gullible and jump into everything and believe anything. There are lots of people out to scam and make use of you and your site. Don’t blindly join every damn program that is offered to you. There is a sucker born every second.

And yo, is it so hard to differentiate :

You are and Yours

There are and Theirs

One more tip : Don’t use the same password on sites you do not completely trust!

    after I concentrated on other avenues. Thanks for the good blog people need to be reminded of these things.
