Income From Home Academy – Reviewed!

is fast cash from home a scam

Income From Home Academy immediately comes off as your typical online scam. It’s hard to miss the big claims of “Quick and Easy”, “NO Skills Required”, and even “Be Your Own Boss”.

While it’s true many people are discovering working from home and earning money online is an actual thing when done the right way, these kinds of systems, which are seen all too often, NEVER live up to their promises.

Is Income From Home Academy legit? – I’m giving you full access inside to decide for yourself!

Have a look for yourself as I break down my experiences after purchasing the program.

Note: I have no affiliation with the Income From Home Academy, this is an unbiased review disclosing some of my encounters while using this system.

What Is Income From Home Academy

Just in case you were wondering, Income From Home Academy is no academy or institute of any kind so don’t be fooled by the title.

This system pretty much implies that just by following it you will be able to become your own boss while making a significant amount of money on the internet.

Like most of these systems, the problem is they never explain exactly what kind of work to expect or how you can reach your end goals.

Here’s what I did find, however…

Before getting into one major annoyance I had, and for anyone else who decides to buy this system will experience… I noticed a few things on the ‘sales page’ that were a little strange.

For example, this check dated all the way back to 2008:

As well as this found at the top of the website:

These popular networks are used in this way on numerous scam sites in an attempt to give their product some credibility.

However, it has nothing to do with the Income From Home Academy believe me, it even says so on the bottom of the website:

Another photoshop copy of a paycheck dated back to 2012, labeled “Recent Checks”:

I’ve come to realize that these “companies” or people do a lot of recycling and copying and pasting of their old work. They then re-brand (pick a new website name) and use their old promotional material on a new site.

The two out-dated checks are evidence of this, not to mention the mishaps I came across once inside!

Is Income From Home Academy A Scam

I was completely convinced that Income From Home Academy WAS a scam immediately after purchasing the product and here’s why:

income from home academy

Your presented with at least 4 lengthy pages of up sells before ever reaching the member’s area and are urged to upgrade to “VIP Membership”, which doesn’t exist as I show shortly.

They are asking you to spend more money before you can even access the item YOU JUST BOUGHT. This is unacceptable.

Sites like this make me realize how fortunate I am to have found and be apart of Wealthy Affiliate, I learned how to create websites such as the one we’re on now and others.

There’s NO up sells, and people are actually learning the steps and making money online.

Income From Home Academy has an asking price of $4.97 but you can get in for as low as $1.

What’s not so obvious however is the fee of $40 which will be charged monthly.

Note: For those interested in cancelling to avoid future billing, you may contact the Live Help by clicking the green button from the members area. 

Here’s What You Are Paying For

As mentioned you are met by several pages of up sells before getting to see what it is you purchased.

Once arrived, the “Members Area” looks like this:

The “Important – Life Changing video” you see above takes you to a completely new website and promotion, by the way.

I have no doubt in my mind that Income From Home Academy is a scam at this point…

Remember all the hype of “being your own boss” and “making $397 a day”, yeah I don’t see that happening.

Now I will admit within the 5 courses (seen above) their is some decent information, but none will lead to structuring an organized business or making money online, especially if you are new to websites or making money online in general.

The courses contradict themselves, for example, the Facebook Marketing training(course #1) mentions how there is no need for a website while SEO Secrets (Course #4) is all about running a website.

As mentioned the advice given in these courses is not terrible advice, aside from the contradicting part, but there isn’t any need-to-know advice and you can find BETTER tips with a simple Google search.

My guess is Income From Home Academy purchased licensing rights to these other “courses” and each come from separate make money online scams.

Only they are all compiled into one place giving users something to follow along while they continue paying their $40 a month membership fee…

Other Things To Note

I said that the VIP Membership upgrade doesn’t exist.

You know, the one they pressure you into buying because “every business owner needs one”… Here’s why VIP doesn’t exist:

income from home academy

From the Members Area you can click on VIP Membership in the main menu and you are given access to “VIP bonuses” anyway.

I did not pay any extra and it’s obvious that they’re really trying to squeeze as much money as they can out of you.

In return, you getting really poor value.

Proof of Copy and Paste

While the owner of this product Emily Young’s name can be spotted showing off “her” paychecks and even at the bottom of most pages for this product;

I noticed a few slip-ups…

income from home academy

income from home academy

income from home academy

In their haste to put together Income From Home Academy to scam the public out of their money, they forgot to change the owners name from “Sophie” to Emily Young.

And in some instances, they forgot to change the entire product name and were still calling it “Freedom Club” or “Startup Freedom Club”.

All of this can be spotted on the EXTRA sales pages.

The Training

From a portion of the training you are being taught how to create something known as Squeeze Pages.

This is designed to lead people to similar, unethical products like Income From Home Academy. So in essence, you will be leading people to the same crappy product you just bought or ones alike it.

You could potentially make money doing this, but this is NOT a way into creating a long-term, valuable business. And one in which you can be proud of and actually help others.

Product: Income From Home Academy
Owner: Emily Young (stage name)

    Hi There,

    You really have done your homework on this one, unfortunately, for income from home academy, they have not done their own homework and made some basic high school errors.

    This one really smells scammy to me! Surprised you gave it a rating as high as 1 out of 10!

      Jason - 6 years ago

      Ha, you do have a point there. I was able to cancel and they do offer some form of training (even if it’s not their own and all over the place) therefor they got the 1 rating.

      You are correct, it has scam and waste of time written all over it. I do not recommend Income From Home Academy to anyone.

      Thanks for stopping by, Derek.

    Hey Andrew the Wealthy Affiliate is a great opportunity not to mention the community of people – Since you like doing SEO and building websites you should checkout [EDIT] – The skills you learned from creating this site would be a excellent jump start… Plus the money you earn is real and worth the work……. Not to mention residuals ?

    Great catch and honest opinion on the income from home academy. Most of these courses are a total waste of money as most people will do nothing with them. I know I have bought a few only to have thrown away my money. Anyway good luck with your blogging and keep up with the real honest reviews……

      Jason - 6 years ago

      Hey Chris, Jason here.

      Agreed, Wealthy Affiliate is a great beginner-friendly place to learn about online business.

      Yes, Income From Home Academy was a complete waste of time and money (even though I only spent $1). It’s designed to funnel people to one promotion after the other and get them to spend even more money. The $1 is the bare minimum to get you in and ensure you have your Credit Card nearby, after that BAM, up sell after up sell…

      Will do Chris and I am going thru the website you suggested now and it looks very interesting – thanks for sharing.

    Thanks so much for your help!! I was about to get into de Home Academy scam when saw your review

      Jason - 6 years ago

      You’re welcome Jose.

      Good for you for doing the research beforehand!

    Hey, looking to make income from home? Check out this amazing company. I’ve already started generating $5,000 monthly, in just 2 weeks! [EDIT]

      Jason - 6 years ago

      Hey “marsh”, links to scams will never be accepted on this site.

      I don’t see how you can make $5,000 “monthly” in just 2 weeks, especially if you’re business involves spamming other people’s comment section.

      No one here’s convinced… Good luck?

    veronica - 6 years ago

    hey Jason I need some help I’m looking for a full time job for at home think you can help me out?

      Jason - 6 years ago

      Hi Veronica, Sure!

      There are websites that can help direct you to different jobs where you have the option to apply to work for different companies. Sites like: Indeed, or FlexJobs can help out with that.

      I’ve never had a work from home “job” so I don’t tend to focus on them too much within this site. What this site does is help people learn where they can start an online business of their own, which is not a fast solution to making money, but will allow those who work at it a way to earn consistent income on the internet.

      If interested, feel free to check out my #1 recommendation for starting an at home business.

      If you have any further questions, send them my way!

    Chris - 6 years ago

    I’ve seen those CNN and ABC banners used so many times on scam products now its getting a little irritating. I mean, surely there’s some sort of law against ripping off these emblems? Can’t the channels actually take out a case against the scams that use them? Thanks for covering this opportunity (or lack of opportunity) and warning us all
