30 Minute Money Methods – Were You Being Lied To?

30 Minute Money Methods - Were You Being Lied To?

30 Minute Money Methods claimed to be a system you can use to make big money: $500 in 30 minutes.

Why do I say “claimed”?

It’s because at the time of this post update, January 1st, 2022, you’ll see the following when trying to comment to their website:

30 Minute Money Methods - Were You Being Lied To?

That’s right – The 30 Minute Money Methods, another horrible product hosted on the Clickbank platform, is no longer in service.

However, there are still valuable lessons that can be learned by briefly reviewing why this so-called make money online product failed.

30 Minute Money Methods Review

  • Name: 30 Minute Money Methods
  • Website URL: 30minutemoneymethods.com is no longer working
  • Creator: “Shelly West” who is absolutely FAKE
  • Price: $37 or $27 + annoying upsells
  • Date Product Created: 2017
  • Overall Ranking: 01 out of 100. 

In the sales video, there was a fake person named “Shelly West” who claimed an ordinary Joe can make up to $50,000 a month with very little work! 

As soon as I looked at how the sales video was set up, the first thought that came to my mind was “SCAM!”

If you view a make money online system and the only thing you see is a sales video, a high-income claim above the video, and an opt-in form below the video, it has all the makings of a SCAM.

In the sales video, “Shelly West” tries to move your emotions and make you buy after you hear her fake story of hardship.

Poor, Poor Shelly West

“Shelly West” wanted to show people like you and I how she went from being broke to becoming rich.

“Shelly West,” said she didn’t have a college degree and couldn’t earn enough money to feed her two children.

She tried various ways of earning money so she could survive.

Completing surveys was something she tried, but never paid out enough money for her needs.

Next came blogging, but that was a failure because she lost what little money she had in banner ads.

On the third time, that’s when she found the “secret websites” that made her money right away!

At this point, I’m thinking to myself, “What are these secret websites she found?”

How is it I never found these “secret websites?”

Anyway, she claimed she started making $10,000 per week, right out the gate.

Thanks to these “secret websites”, she quit her lousy job and her life changed completely forever.

Out of the kindness of her heart, she wants to share these “secret websites” with you so you can make $10,000 a week as she did!

Well…I guess “making $10,000 a week” wasn’t enough to keep her website running – it seems as though $10,000 a week doesn’t go as far as it used to!

There’s One Born Every Minute

The story above is the biggest load of horse crap I’ve heard in a while.

Unfortunately, it’s these types of “stories” that allow scammers to pocket tens of thousands of dollars from unsuspecting people.

If 30 Minute Money Methods worked so well, then why was it packed full of FAKE testimonials?

This thing was full of ’em!

Here’s a “testimonial” from the 30 Minute Money Methods sales video…

Guess what? Totally FAKE – This dude is a Fiverr.com actor.

Heres another “testimonial” from the sales video…

30 Minute Money Methods - Were You Being Lied To?

Another totally FAKE success story – thanks to the good people from Fiverr.com!

30 Minute Money Methods - Were You Being Lied To?

I’ve seen this lady a number of times. She’s been around spreading FAKE reviews and testimonials everywhere!

30 Minute Money Methods - Were You Being Lied To?

Apparently, the FAKE testimonial business must be doing well at Fiverr.com.

30 Minute Money Methods - Were You Being Lied To?

Any of you who have read my reviews know that if a product has FAKE testimonials I take that very seriously.

Promoting fake testimonials is basically lying – plain and simple.

Therefore, if you are lying to potential customers in an attempt to get their money that’s a SCAM.

30 Minute Money Methods was similar to other SCAM websites I’ve reviewed on this blog such as:

What Was 30 Minute Money Methods?

30 Minute Money Methods - Were You Being Lied To?

If you were unfortunate enough to have purchased this garbage, in the member’s area, you would have had access to 4 completely worthless pieces of training.

What these people attempted to package as a make-money-online program was completely useless and pathetic.

What you get was a selection of 4 PDF files about the following topics:

  • voice overs
  • taking pictures for stock photos,
  • playing games online,
  • and freelancing.

Included is a so-called “secret” method of making money via marketing through social media.

Each PDF was a collection of information you can basically find for free from the internet.

What is ironic is when you look at the 4 methods above, all 4 of them are legitimate money-making methods.

However, for these methods to make money for you, it will take months or even years of work in order to make the kind of money “Shelly West” said you could make.

The point is, “Shelly” was selling a PDF on money-making methods that grossly exaggerated the results. All of the methods mentioned need time to work.

You absolutely are not going to make what “Shelly” claimed she made; $2,277 in her first day and $48,330 in her first month.

That’s really unethical for ANY make-money-online program to claim that, however, that’s what most of them do: make unproven, exaggerated claims of fast money with very little work!

Was 30 Minute Money Methods A Scam?

Yes…30 Minute Money Methods was a SCAM from the very beginning.

However, it’s a wonderful thing that this garbage scamming website is no longer working!

Trying to make money under false pretenses by using FAKE testimonials, fake customer comments, fake earnings screenshots, and a fake owner “Shelly West.”

Everything about this product cried FAKE!

There is one positive aspect to this:

30 Minute Money Methods is hosted on the Clickbank platform.

Therefore, if you were unfortunate enough to purchase this piece of garbage, you were able to get your money back.

Clickbank has a great reputation for honoring its 60-day money-back guarantee.

  1. Thank you, Howard. 

    I have personally fallen for these tricks. 

    Thankfully, I have just started trying Wealthy Affiliate and though I have not made money yet, I have met a very wonderful and supportive community who are eager to help navigate setting up my business. 

    There are many ways of making money online but most are scams. 

    Choosing the better way with slow but sure guidance is the real way to go. I vouch for the Wealthy Affiliate program any day or time.

    • Hey Paogola,

      Your comments are on point…Thanks for taking the time to read this post!

      I wish you much success in your online business.

  2. This seems too good to be true. 500 dollars in 30 minutes. I’m not going to lie but that seems like an impossible task. 

    It is however very affordable so it wouldn’t hurt for you to try it out. I will be sure to share this article with friends and family I know are looking for ways to make money online 

    • Hey Aubin,

      Fortunately, you won’t have the opportunity to “try it out” because the URL is no longer working since it’s been found out to be a SCAM.

      Thanks for your comments,

  3. I think the saying “if it seems too good to be true” is something we should all be aware of. 

    That one sentence that says “an ordinary Joe can make up to $50,000 a month with very little work” is laughable. 

    It’s good that people like you highlight these scammers. I know from experience that there is no such thing as a magic push-button solution, and anyone who tells you differently is a scammer.

    • Hey Sam,

      Your comments are correct…

      The thing is scammers know which psychological buttons to push to get you to part with your hard-earned money…

      There are no “quick and fast” ways to make money online, and anyone who says it is is flat-out lying.

      Thanks for taking the time to read.


  4. It’s really unfortunate that so many people con people out of money. People must realize, however, that they will not be duped if they understand that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Nothing in life is going to be easy, including making money. 

    Anything that claims to make money quickly and with little effort is a scam. I feel so bad for people who get caught up in scams like The 30 Minute Money Method before it disappears. Scams, on the other hand, abound. That is why I am grateful for your website, as it allows me to determine whether something is a scam or not before signing up. Thank you for your kind words.

    • Hello Kiersti,

      Your comments are spot on!

      One of the reasons I wanted to start a make-money-online blog was to expose SCAM programs like The 30 Minute Money Method!

      Thank You for taking the time to read and comment.


  5. Hey Paogola,

    I have found that Wealthy Affiliate is one of the best online platforms for helping individuals to build a successful online business.

    There are no quick fixes when it comes to building a profitable business…

    Patience, consistency and hard work WILL PAY OFF in time!

    Thanks for taking the time to read this post.
