Yelp

Yelp is the go-to for many searchers who have had good experiences with Yelp reviews and who find the site trustworthy. However, it is troubling to hear about accounts of customers threatening business owners with bad Yelp reviews if they do not give them freebies or extra service. It is the nature of the reviews business, though. Unfortunately, it’s fairly accurate to call Yelp a scam. There’s no doubt that Yelp does need to fix its algorithm and explain how it works. Too many legitimate reviews get discounted.

Reviewopedia

While Reviewopedia was originally created to sell work-from-home courses and job opportunities, the site has been taken over by businesses from different industries as well. You have nothing to lose by signing up for Reviewopedia and submitting your own reviews, and I recommend using them as part of your purchasing decision when applicable. However, as always, consider multiple sources.

BiggerPockets

Financial speculators have long made money by inflating the expectations of smaller investors in order to persuade them to purchase investment properties without due diligence. Often, these operations are paired with financing that further exposes the small investor, too. The Bigger Pockets scam is a prime example of these tactics one that has shown little hesitation to lash out at its critics instead of fixing its own problems.

Beezid

Calling Beezid a scam is not exactly true, although the huge majority of consumers should stay away from all penny auction sites. For consumers who are well aware of penny auction sites and who have money and research skills, Beezid offers some features such as the sniper bidding tool that other penny auctions may not have.

eBay

Buying on eBay is relatively safe, although customers should watch out for scams that include piracy; it is not always apparent an item is pirated, and when it stops working months later, customers may be out of many options. It is with selling that more risk comes in, but still, only a relatively small amount of total purchases on eBay get flagged. Sellers should avoid selling more-expensive items until they get more experience; insurance is also an option.

Craigslist

If you are looking to do business on Craigslist, there are a lot of features to recommend it. This is especially true for local real estate and automotive sales, and for those looking for a bargain on local used goods. It is not recommended as an ecommerce platform, though, and attempting to use it as one will likely leave a consumer open to the kinds of fraud highlighted here.

In spite of all the big promises made by the Scott Yancey brand, there is little to demonstrate that Scott Yancey is able to deliver on his promises. Look elsewhere for a solid real-estate education.
