I want to warn you about Work at Home Paycheck in this review because I do believe it is a scam. Here’s why:
Quick Report on Work at Home Paycheck:
Name: Work at Home Paycheck by Jessica Marshall.
Price: $397 discounted to $97, then $77, then $47.
Overall Rating: 0 out of 10 stars
It’s the same type of scam done on a new type of sales page. The only difference is that Work at Home Paycheck takes a new spin on the same type of scam I’ve been reviewing on a number of sites before.
The new spin isn’t so much the product which I didn’t buy, but rather the way it’s being sold. And there are a number of other things I found which don’t make rating this program any better.
Work at Home Paycheck explained:
The idea behind the program’s claim is that you can work from home posting links and make good money doing so. The funny thing about reviewing this program and others like it is that they’re technically right in what they say can be done online, but the odds of it being done through these places is in my opinion highly unlikely.
The price of the program is discounted many times all the way down to $47 and in order to get to that price, you have to keep hitting the back button.
A redesigned scam? Yep!
In order to properly explain why I believe this program is a scam, you need to know that there’s many other websites like it spreading online all promising very similar things: Make money posting links. And there’s already a huge list of work at home scam sites like this that I’ve compiled.
The difference with the other sites is that they are mostly designed in the following way:
- You usually find the site through an ad or fake work at home special report sites.
- After you visit the official page, they say sign up is free, but you have to enter your name/email.
- Upon entering, you’ll usually get a “so and so spots left in your area” which is by the way not true.
- There is a video you’ll often see on these sites talking about how people make money from home. The trick here is that the video is totally legitimate, but is in no way associated with the site itself. They just take that video from a news report that was once on TV.
- Below that you’ll usually read a sob story about how a single mother struggled to make ends, how horrible it was, how she lost her job and how she miraculously found an answer through what is now being sold to you.
- This leads into the link posting pitch about how you can easily capitalize on this opportunity.
- The price for this is also listed at $97 which is often discounted to $77.
So where does Work at Home Paycheck fit into all of this?
Well the answer is that instead of having to read through all the stuff on the old scam pages, on this one you just get to see a video and that video contains most of the things I just mentioned above. This is why I said it’s a new spin on an old scam.
Legitimate programs are hard to find online, but Wealthy Affiliate is one of them. See why.
And while I was watching the video, so much familiarity came flooding in because after all, I’ve seen and read the same type of pitch so many times, only now it was in video. That’s really the only difference I noticed.
Is Jessica Marshall even real?
No she is not, at least by name. How do I know? Scroll down on the page and you’ll see a difficult to read disclaimer where it says the following (screenshot):
So if Jessica Marshall is ADMITTEDLY a pen name, then who is the woman in the video? Could she be an actor? Maybe it’s the real person behind the program, but the fact remains, she’s not Jessica.
I never like programs in which people hide behind another name or worse get actors to do the job of selling for them. My opinion on this is that it says the wrong things about the program and makes it less trustworthy.
And there’s another thing I noticed. Under that first paragraph, there’s mention of additional charges. What’s that all about? Well that’s another thing that’s common with these types of scams and that is surprise up-sells. Obviously if you read the whole page, particularly the bottom part, you’ll be aware of this, but since this is on the very bottom of the page, very few people will even make it that far.
And what kind of up-sells are we talking about? Well the disclaimer mentions a few things and in my previous experiences reviewing these programs, you had this as well as potential sales calls. Will that happen with Work at Home Paycheck? My opinion is yes.
These programs, especially those which get discounted so much are usually not as cheap as they say. Up-sells are very common nowadays. The thing that drives me nuts is when they pull it on you as a surprise. So be aware that this could happen if you buy into the program.
- I honestly can’t name any.
- Very similar to other scam sites I’ve found on link posting.
- Jessica Marshall isn’t real.
- Odds of up-sells as mentioned on their site.
Final Rating: Work at Home Paycheck
Red Flag (Scam)
0 out of 10 stars. There’s just too much stuff I saw that pointed towards this site being a scam.
My final thoughts:
Now that I’ve seen that this scam can take on a new look, I’ll be watching out for other websites which may likely start taking this new video approach instead of the old one I see. I would not be surprised since selling through videos has become more and more popular.
As someone who personally does online business full time and sees these types of sites all around us and the message they are trying to deliver, I’m here to tell you that is is possible on one hand, but on the other, finding the right program (Wealthy Affiliate) that does this is imperative and Work at Home Paycheck is not that program in my opinion.
If you would like to share your personal thoughts on this program, by all means, let me know.

Thanks to my bank, it denied the first charge. I would like to contact them but there is no direct email associated with this business.
I would like to work for work at home paycheck. You did email me about this position. Please get back to me, because I do not have your phone number.
Angela, you are mistaken, I do not work for this company and I have never emailed you about any position.
How is Wealthy Affiliate different from all these other scams? Does it ask for money up front? How sad it is that these scams are taking place and prying on others bad situations.
Whatever you do, please do not try to market me some other scam sites. I have been in my own business for 10 years and in sales for over 20, so I’m much smarter than you may think.
I don’t market scams Elvira. Wealthy Affiliate does not ask for money, unless you decide to join their paid level. But there is no request for any information other than a log-in to join for free.
If you have tried other companies that are scams, you will immediately notice a major difference between them and WA. There will be people contacting you to welcome you (not sell you) and help you start as well as very informative lessons on online marketing.
Thank you very much for the saved time & money on this one! Really wish it wasn’t so, I could always use the money. If anybody knows of a legit online opportunity I would love to know more? Thanks again!
Hi Adam, did you read my article on Wealthy Affiliate? That is the program that works.
Do u no of good legitimate companies that u can make money at home..
Hi Abdul, I absolutely do. Read about WA, one of the few good ones I recommend.
Hey Jessica marshals this is Mickey mims of it’s true about making money with you then send it to my address at *address removed* the check that you said you deposited in my account I don’t have a account
Mickey, please do not post your address online. I had to erase it, but I understand you’re trying to address Jessica Marshall directly. If you did pay anything for that program, try to get a refund as soon as possible.
I like your point about them not lying about what you can do online to make money. I think the problem is that people read articles about how to make money online, then they search for companies to do it with, and it is hard to find anyone legit. A good technique may be to find an article about reputable companies from a reputable new source that has no interest in any of the companies.
That’s very tough Sean. To place one type of “means test” on every site is not going to work since there’s many ways to work from home so it has to fit the person and what they are looking for. That’s what I try to do on my site.
