Name: Stay at Home Revenue by Michelle Withrow.
Price: The prices for these programs vary around $97, to $77 and maybe even lower with others. Expect to pay more though after purchase.
Overall Rating: 0 out of 10 stars. Well here we go again, reviewing the same old scams, being renamed to look like they’re new…
Stay at Home Revenue in a nutshell:
It’s always a matter of time until programs like Stay at Home Revenue appear or re-appear because maybe an old scam goes down and this one takes it’s place or it’s just someone else running their own version of the site to make money.
These sites usually pitch the message of making money by posting links. If you’ve read any of my reviews in the past on similar programs like Stay at Home Revenue, you’ll know just how misleading, general and hyped that claim is.
Michelle Withrow: A fake name behind multiple programs!?
Say it isn’t so! Well actually it is. Michelle Withrow, even if she’s real is behind not just Stay at Home Revenue, but also other programs, one of which is Work at Home University. I’m a believer that Michelle isn’t real and they are just rotating the scam and the name’s of supposed people who “created it”, but I guess they ran out of names or just returned to a previous name because they just didn’t want to create a new one:
So here’s one straight from the site:
And here is another:
Look to the left of the image of the woman. Your eyes are not mistake, that says Michelle Withrow, but the kicker in this screenshot is that the second image you see isn’t from the Stay at Home Revenue site, it’s from a past site I’ve reviewed which looked exactly like this one.
I think it was also Work at Home University. Like I said, they just duplicate many of the same things over and over, the site, the names, the pictures and to avoid getting caught, they’ll rotate them around to avoid suspicion. I’ve seen so many other sites with the same image, but with a different name being under it.
Repeat scams being repeated:
It’s been almost 2 years since I first stumbled onto one of these scams (Want to see more?) and as time went on, I would find many more. As I would find each new one, most of them would all look pretty much the same and overtime I developed my own theories on how these scams operate. There are 2 operations I believe that are being run here:
1. You have 1 person or organization behind the site and the way they run it is like this:
- Start with scam A.
- Scam A gets enough complaints, shut down the site, reopen site B, under a different name (looks the same though).
- Site B gets complaints, shut down, move into a site C,
- Ect… until you repeat it so many times that people won’t even remember what scam A or B was, so say the scam reaches it’s “limit” at site Z. What then? Well then repeat starting from site A again!
Also, if you do enough research, you’ll notice a lot of these sites are being propped up by mini affiliate sites like fake news websites and/or websites that directly pitch the program.
For example, if you Google “Stay at Home Revenue” other than getting basic review pages (one of which was probably mine), you’ll find 1 page sites that promote it so when you click on it, it’ll take you to the site.
These are prop sites which give weight to the main site, in this case Stay at Home Revenue to keep it a boost. And when Stay at Home Revenue inevitably shuts down, these same prop sites are going to change they linking strategy and just link to the newest scam. So it may still say Stay at Home Revenue on the site, but when you click it, it’ll take you to another site, usually one that looks almost identical, but with a different name.
2. You have different people copying these sites because they sell, but they are just pitching their own affiliate offers.
Both options 1 and 2 could be linked together, but figuring this out is like trying to figure out your way through a maze. There’s so many of these pages and who knows who or how many people are behind them. It’s a big network though and it’s been around for a VERY long time. I don’t think it’s going to go anywhere because it keeps working and scamming people.
Final Rating: Stay at Home Revenue
Red Flag (Scam)
0 out of 10 stars. Well another scam is found. Now I’ll be counting the days till the new version comes out…
My final thoughts: Working from home. Is it just a fantasy?
These sites always pitch the good dream life of working from home or on the beach and how effortlessly it could be done if you follow their program and you now see that it’s not going to be possible through them, but does that mean the dream is impossible?
No it actually doesn’t. I work from home and I love it, but I will never tell anyone it’s easy to get to or that if you press a button or post some links that you’ll be a millionaire. It’s a very tough business, but it’s also amazing once you can get through the early stages which is usually understanding just how much work is involved and what you need to do but as you do it and chip away at it, you will build your business and eventually get to a point where it can be done all the time from home.
I made a career out of it, but it was sites like Stay at Home Revenue which always pulled me back because they always tried to make me think it was easy if I only paid them whatever they charged. There is a lot of money I will never see again and promises after promises (it was just lies…) that have never been fulfilled. I stopped waiting on that and moved forward.
