Zeek Rewards as we know it has been shut down by the Feds. Like who couldn’t see this coming? You can learn more about it here: http://www.sec.gov/news/press/2012/2012-160.htm
I looked over this program several months ago and something about it just didn’t seem right. Perhaps it was the way it was paying out, or maybe it was how people had to invest into some kind of point system to give away credits or maybe it was the make money by posting one classified a day line or maybe it was….
You do see the red flags going up and up and up don’t you?
Zeek Rewards was so complex that you had to literally go through it several times to fully understand it all and even then it still didn’t make complete sense.
Needless to say that to a lot of people including myself it just didn’t pass the smell test.
What’s to learn from this?
If a program seems like more of an investment type of scheme than a true business opportunity…and the program goes to great lengths to say it’s NOT an investment program odds are it may not be legitimate.
It’s that old saying…
If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, odds are it’s a duck.
How to Pick a Business Opportunity
An ex-business partner of mine wrote this very good book on how to choose a business opportunity. You can download it for free from Box.net here.
If there’s one thing to remember is this: choose a business opportunity or business that has real viable products/services that real people want to buy.
