Writers, Don’t Fall For The Trap

  • 2 min read

It’s a flattering and tempting offer, but a scam

Within the last past days, some of my students reached out to me, totally excited:

“You won’t believe it, I got an affiliate/brand deal offer.”

At first glance, I felt excited for them and wanted to pop a bottle of champagne.

Then I was glad they shared a screenshot of the comment with the offer they had received.

The affiliate offer

They are offering to become an affiliate.

For everyone who clicks on the link and buys the product or starts. you’ll earn a certain amount of money.

The writing offer

So many writers here would love to write for publications/platforms outside of Medium as freelance writers.

That’s what those spammers offer: $50 to $100 for a story on their website.

Unfortunately, both offers are scams!

You need to report them.

Don’t click on the links they are sharing.

Any experience with this?
