Michelle Matthews and Kelly Richards Work at Home Scam Busted!

by admin on July 5, 2011

You may have come across a local ad on Action 8 Reports featuring a woman named Michelle Matthews (or sometimes known as Kelly Richards). One day, she filled on a simple file and it changed her life forever! She stumbled upon a work-at-home opportunity that allows her to earn $6000-$7000 per month! As it turns out, she stays in the area near you! What’s more, you can learn this “secret” from “New Life Porfit run by an expert called “Michelle Matthews”.

Kelly Richards Exposed!
I tried to Google Kelly Richards from my own’s PC and anonymous proxy server, and found that she’s everywhere! According to the search results, she lives in Seremban Malaysia, London UK, New Jersey USA, and Toronto Canada. Many other users online confirmed the same results.

Here’s the kicker: Kelly Richards is a fake persona. She “lives” near you because the website has a built-in IP detection script to display your location name. Also, Action 8 Reports is not a legitimate news site! They will make you believe that the work-at-home program is endorsed by NBC, ABC, CNN and New York Time. However, these media organizations never endorse Kelly Richards, Action 8 Reports, Michelle Matthews and their get-rich-quick schemes. Don’t believe me? Take a look on top of Action 8 Reports and you will find the phrase “advertisements” (see below):

And, at the bottom of the page you will find this tiny print:
“We are not affiliated in any way with CNN, WebTV, News Channel 7, ABC, NBC, CBS or U.S. News.”

Alas, many people let desperation get the better of them and they overlook the disclaimer.

Variations
As I dig deeper I found tons of clone websites featuring Kelly Richards. These sites are nothing but storefront front for work-at-home scams under different name. Take a look here:

Sometimes she is Melissa Johnson:

And, New Life Profit appears to be very similar to ehome Profit Kit and At Home Income Source!

In addition, the so called work-at-home “experts”, Michelle Matthews is associated with following programs:

Home Revenue System
Home Online Jobs
Home Website Builder

These programs are the classical “place links to make money” scams.

Can you make money online?
Yes, you can make money through internet, at the comfort of your home. You can earn money by placing ads on your website with Google Adsense and participate in affiliate marketing program. When someone clicks on the ads or buy something via your links, you will get paid. Regardless, the big companies DO NOT pay you to post links!

Verdict? Steer clear from Kelly Richards, Michelle Matthews and New Life Profits!

I purchased this Home income kit for 49.95 on my debit card and was routed to a page asking to upgrade no reciept or contact info. I lost connection. No e-mail was sent or phone calls to confirm my purchase I got absolutely nothing. The money was withdrawn from my account and no product or contact nothing I am frantic and don’t know what to do.

I was a victim of a fake company who took my money on an HCG scam. I contacted my bank to report to them (about an Inet scam) and they kindly refunded the amount to my account. I don’t know if it’s too late for you to report this to your bank or not – but they do have some contact information they can give you about the company.

I have been receiving various emails from the michelle, melissa, & kelly “company”. I really considered giving this a try but decided to do some research first. Nothing but new of scams & theft. Thanx for the heads up. My husband has been unemployed for 3 months from being laid off. I still work but we are barely getting by with his unemployment income & my income. I thought this was a way out but I was wrong. Anyone know of a work-at-home program that’s not bogus?

I only filled out the first form to see what was next. When I saw the conditions about automatic billing of $29.95 a month I stopped. The next day these jerks were calling my phone number all day while I was out.
When the guy finally got to speak with me the next day after that, He nagged the hell out of me to sign up. I still said “NO!” Thank GOD!! This was the phone number: 602 247-6009 . I just finished saying no to the guy & I found the truth right here.
Thanks Luis for posting this article!!!

Hi John
Thanks for posting this message. I live in Australia and 602 247 6009 has called identifying himself as a representative for Amazon. Apparently they will help you set up a website where you can sell Amazon products and you get a percentage of the sale. Thank goodness my kids were late for school this morning and I didnt have time to chat. He was very persistent that I make a small payment of $1.99 by visa or american express so that he can email me the details.

Hey Lisa: well as far as I am concerned the Amazon team doesn’t help you to set up the website. I suspect now that the fella has your credit card info they are going to charge you repeatedly. I urge you to watch your CC statement closely.

Wow, thanks God I found this article. I was within inches of entering my CC info and taking the $100 chance that this could turn into something remotely profitable and the fact that “Kelly” was a single mom living 30 minutes away from me was a huge plus! Ugh, I need money.

Me too – sounded so good. Nearly got scammed again – recently bought a diet product called Nuvoryn which according to many websites is a possible fake product and uses misleading advertising. Just reminds if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Dont give in to impulse buying – do the homework first. Thanks to this site Im not going to be foolish and naive.

Thanks Luis for this article. I just read about this work at home program and was researching some more info on it when I ran onto your article. Indeed Melissa Johnson stays in Benoni, just 20 munites away. Sad that people had posted positive comments about the program really being profitable and encouraging others to sign up.

Bridgette, those so called praising comments are all fake, either you type in what they want to see, which is you telling how ‘amazing’ this ‘product’ is and when you click send the site automatically filters out all the negative ones. they’re probably written by the company itself and it just keeps renewwing the timestamps on the comments.

The Kelly Richards scam is operating in New Zealand as well. “She” has turned up in Auckland and Christchurch (New Zealand’s two biggest cities). The scam has been found on Facebook using the websites of New Zealand businesses for illegal purposes, and all of the site owners have complained to Facebook.
