What Is It?

Work at Home Institute is a clone site of a famous work at home program that goes by many names. I do not know if I can call it a scam, but there are a lot of lies you need to understand before you get involved with their program.

Short Review:

WAH Institute teaches affiliate marketing and other legitimate ways to make money online. However, there are some very sketchy advertising practices you need to watch for. My recommendation is to NOT BUY. If you want to see how I make money on the internet, you can see my #1 Recommended Training Center for newbies to get started.

What You Need To Know

Fake News Report

You might have already seen the advertising page with the story about the work at home mom called “Bobbie Robinson” and how she started making money on the internet. It looks like a real news report, right?

It’s not.

Work At Home Institute Fake News Ad

This not a new anchor, she’s an actress

It’s an advertisement that is designed to look like a news report. This type of advertisement is called an advertorial. It’s actually the law in many US states that any site that uses this type of advertisement need to make it 100% obvious and clear that it’s not a real news report, but this site does not do that. As you might know, regulating these types of things are difficult on the internet.

Fake Endorsements

Do you remember seeing these?

wah fake endorsements

It might look like this product is endorsed by big companies like FOX, ABC, or CNN. But if you read the fine print, you will see that “work from home jobs have been featured on” only means that these networks have done reports about people that work from home. It does not mean that they have anything to do with this company.

Fake Offers

You will also remember that you have to “apply” to see if you are eligible to sign up. You’ll see from the screenshot below that there are only 3 offers available in my area! Oh No!

wah qualify yeah right

But I entered a fake zip code of 55555. In fact, it doesn’t matter what you enter. They do this for two reasons. One, it makes you think you are getting something special. Two, they get your email address and can then send advertisements to your email inbox.

Oh look! There are 3 positions in the 55555 area code!

Oh look! There are 3 positions in the 55555 area code!

Fake Discounts

If you try to click away, you’ll also see that the price is reduced from $97, to $77, then to $47. No matter how many times you return to the checkout page, these offers are still valid. It certainly isn’t a one time offer!

Inside Work At Home Institute

I actually bought this product from a clone site. You can see the review here: Web Fortune Master. You will recognize the same advertising setup, same fake news report, and the same fake everything.

Funny story; I tried to buy Work at Home Institute and it said I already had an account. I hadn’t signed up before, so I did some looking in my emails.

It turns out that Work at Home Institute is actually just another gateway to the same product called Members Only Training. I will not redo the entire review of the product. If you want to see exactly what’s provided in the members are, please click the link above. Hint: It’s not worth your time.

To summarize, the product itself is not bad. There are some decent training videos, and some legit marketing tactics. HOWEVER, it is not worth your money, and I highly recommend you do not buy it. Please keep reading.

Get Paid To Post Links?

In the main advertisement you will have seen that you can get paid to post links.

wah paid links

I am confused as to why they have this, because it has very little to do with what they teach you. The simple fact is that getting paid to post links is the same thing as getting paid to spam. Spam links are a huge problem on internet forums, websites, blogs, and social media. Most of the time you will not get paid good amounts of money, and you will only get paid if someone doesn’t delete your link.

The Training Videos

The actual training inside the members area is not bad, but there are huge gaps in the information provided. It’s very difficult to do for a newbie because the training videos only tell you what to do. They do not show you how to do it. Without a personal mentor, or a forum to consult, it will be very hard to work through the training videos.

Final Review:

Thumbs Down

What Now?

It is possible to make money on the internet, but before you join any program, you need to set realistic goals. Many people expect to get rich though the internet by creating automated systems, or making a virtual ATM. Unfortunately, 99% of these types of products are scams.

I make money on the internet, and I will tell you how I do it. No secrets. No systems. No scams.

1) I build a website about a topic I am interested in

2) I find some products and services to promote on the website

3) I write blog posts for the website.

4) People find this information in Google and buy things from my site

So, now you need to know how to do a few things. You need to learn how to:

1) Make a website

2) Find products and services to sell

3) Get your website found in Google

You can learn how to do all of this at the same internet business training center where I learned how to build my websites. You can even create a free account there and test drive their courses for 7 days. Yes, you can also create 2 free websites.

    ALMOST, fell for it..

  2. Douglas Hogan says

    I looking for a website and you don’t have to spend a lot of money on because i’m on ssi and its seem ever website you have to put a lot of money for it and people who have a ssi con’t git it because its to mush money for a website…and I lost my job and I lost a lot of money on website and its seem they are scam to git your money and I need a real website that can help me make money because I have a lot of bill’s to pay…

    • Nathaniell says

      You are too trusting Doug – I removed your phone number and contact information from the comment. You should not be giving your phone number out to random people on the internet, especially when looking for business opportunities.

      Also, my advice is to start your business when you are in a better financial situation. Needing money means you’ll be more likely to make bad decisions, invest in the wrong products, and maybe even be forced to stop half way through. Get on your feet, then come back to this stuff at a later time.

  3. Jack says

    That Bobbie Robinson site is bull crap. Paying $97 just to go make links is a total scam and a complete waste of time, and to tell you I almost fell for it. A complete Scam. To you have any advice on this. And is your website true?

    • Nathaniell says

      Well, my website says it’s a scam, so I would think that would be proof that my website tells the truth! You decide :)

  4. RYan says

    FYI 3 position available in postal code vpx 123 which I faked… Canadian Postal codes alternate letter, number as in LNL NLN (L= letter, N=Number)

    Scamaramma ding dong

  5. Patricia Harlow says

    At first I was angry, then furious. Now, I’m just laughing my head off. All I wanted to know was, “what will I be ‘certified’ for, and why must I be ‘certified’?” These people have been emailing back and forth with me for two days now insisting that they are perfectly legitimate, that they just love helping people, and that they are victims of other companies who are jealous of them. But they WILL NOT simply answer those two questions. Oddly, when I mentioned Consumer Reports, all conversation came to an abrupt halt. Omigosh!
    Do you think maybe I hurt someone’s feelings?

    • Nathaniell says

      Are you talking about Work at Home Institute? You’re probably talking to a sales rep that has no idea what they are talking about. I had a guy try to scam me on the phone the other day that hung up after I asked 1 too many questions! Typical…

  6. Leslie says

    Thank you so much. I was moments away from getting involved with WAHinsitute. I desperately need to make extra money along with my regular job in order to pay all my bills. I guess none of these work at home jobs are anything but scams.

    • Nathaniell says

      Most of them are scams if they say working from home is fast or easy. There are legit ways to earn online, but it requires training and often several months to start earning.

  7. Judy says

    Are you for real? I do not know who to believe anymore?
    We are a retired couple just looking to find a way to work at home and bring in some much needed monetary support so we will not be a burden to our children in the future. Is there really something out there for us?

    • Nathaniell says

      Yes, I am for real! But I do not peddle “work from home” opportunities. I teach people how to build an online business. I will be honest with you, most folks have to work for several months on their website without generating ANY revenue. That’s just how business goes. But like any business, you can reap the rewards of your hard work.

    • Sylvia says

      Yes.look into Fulfilled by Amazon. There are plenty of free training videos on YouTube of successful people trains those of us just starting out. Among those are Tracy Smith, Cody Hawk and Dallas Moore. Good luck with your future endea.

    • Terri says

      I fell victim to this scam today as soon as I saw it was a scam.
      I called to cancel,
      They say 100% refund no questions asked.
      When you try to get your money back, they tell you
      “You are not eligible for a full refund. you are only eligble for 50% of your refund. It took me 15 minutes
      Of not ACCEPTING 50% back, Finally she said I will try to expidite your request for a full refund. and it will take up to 5 days for the refund to show.

  9. Yolanda F. says

    Thank you so much for the information on Bobbie Robinson At Home Institute. It almost had me also.

    • Nathaniell says

      This is an extremely popular and widely distributed scam. I think the company originates out of China, but that’s just my suspicion.

  10. Ita says

    Wow I’m happy I googled her name and your site came up. They almost had me, this for giving great incite about these scams.

  11. cindy says

    OMg! i just bought their 2 offerings..and actually spoke with two person. One is the director he explained to me everything and later on he told that there is a 4000 tuition? since i dont have that much money he suggested to half it which is 2000 to me..and he told me to call my bank because i have protection security against scam or endorsing big amount of money. They are aggressive, i tell you. So i called my bank and told they declined it which im thankful because i have doubts..But things i regrets are giving out my address, ss#, and phone no. How will i protect my information now that they have it? will they use them for something? thats what im afraid of.

    • Nathaniell says

      I’m not sure about the protection stuff, usually these scams don’t go as far as stealing money, but if you are afraid, just cancel your card, and you’ll probably be fine.

  12. Jeannie Cloutier says

    I googled it from my phone for reviews thanks!! Yours was great and helpful!

  13. dal says
