Is Computer Technical Guys a scam or not? These people claim to have some awesome online job where people can make nearly $400 a day for just one hour of work. Is this for real, or just some sort of con to relieve us of our money?
Let’s take a look and find out what’s really going on…

~ Computer Technical Guys Review ~
There really are many great opportunities to make money on the internet. Also, there is a lot of good training that shows you how. On the flipside, the internet is also home to many make money online (MMO) scams, as well as platforms that may not be scams, but just don’t deliver on their promises and money hype.
I do my best to highlight the good stuff I find, as well as warn people about the scams and stuff that’s not worth your time and money.
In this review we’ll see how Computer Technical Guys measures up.
What Is Computer Technical Guys?
Just yesterday I reviewed another platform that looks almost identical to this one. Even the name of the site is remarkably similar. It’s called “The Computer Geeks”. I’m positive these two sites are the same thing, just under slightly different names.
Just like with The Computer Geeks, Computer Technical Guys promises you can be making $379 a day by simply posting affiliate links online, whether it be your own site, Facebook, forums or whatever. Again, you only need to put in about an hour of effort a day and you’ll soon find yourself making around $11k a month.
Sounds like really easy money, doesn’t it?
So basically, to sum that up, for about 30 hours of work a month (less than the average fulltime work week), we can make bucket loads more cash than the average monthly wage.
That sounds awesome in theory, but the problem is, this website is just selling lies and BS!
Same Scam All Over Again (and Again)
I’m losing count of how many times I’ve seen this same scam under different names. I must have written at least 30 reviews or more on sites that are super similar and obviously the same thing. The websites look almost identical, with just the site name changed and sometimes the name of the person presenting the deal.
Possibly the same person (or people) are behind every site, which is pretty likely, or there could be scammers out there just copying one another. In any event it’s the same scam every time.
Here are just a handful that I’ve recently reviewed:
Computer Technical Guys Was Never Featured On News Networks
This is a common ploy these days, and every time I come across one of these websites they always claim they’ve had their “opportunity” featured on the news in a positive way. On the header will be a bunch of colourful news channel logos, saying these TV channels have featured them in a story and have endorsed what they are doing.
It’s all completely false, and only used to try and make their offer sound believable and legitimate. They figure if they claim they’ve been seen on the news, you’ll trust them enough to hand your money over.
Some of the channels they always quote are:
- Fox News
- USA Today
- And more…
More Aliases Than An Undercover Cop
Sometimes they use a new name for the site owner and presenter, while other times they’ll repeat a name they’ve used in the past. Guess it depends on how lazy they are feeling.
Another thing you’ll find that’s common on all these sites is a rags to riches story. The presenter is down on her luck. Life is going nowhere until she comes across the Computer Technical Guys’ opportunity. Then everything turns around in a big way.
So many scams use this ploy. Why? Because so many people can relate better to a hard luck story that transforms into a fairytale.
This is the very first time I’ve come across the name of Linda Taylor as a site owner for this scam series. The names below appear regularly on similar sites:
- Cami White
- Karen Evans
- Emily Hudson
- Jessica Marshall
- Kelly Simmons
- And others…
“Limited Spots Available” – Nope, Not True At All
Just about all types of businesses and deals will use this kind of tactic to get people to hurry up and take action. There will either be limited time, limited products or limited spots available.
Computer Technical Guys use the last one on the list. They claim there are limited spots available for their awesome online job in your area, so you better hurry up, make a decision, join and hand your money over.
It’s a totally fake tactic in this case. Of course they want you to hurry up. Not just because they want to get their grubby little hands on your cash, but they also don’t want you to do any homework on them and discover they are a scam.
The So-Called “Job”
There is no difference on any of their websites, no matter what they care to name them. Every single time the “job offer” is the same.
Basically this is some rather bizarre way to doing affiliate marketing. I do affiliate marketing for a living, so I know how it works, but it doesn’t work the way these people teach it.
Linda Taylor claims we can earn $15 every single time we post a link online somewhere. They even have a handy calculator on their website so you can work out how much money you can make each day.
The calculator is a ridiculous gimmick and is just there for show.
Allegedly these affiliate links you are posting are for Fortune 500 companies and other huge corporations and multi-nationals. The thing is, while many big companies do have affiliate programs, they don’t pay anyone just for link posting like Computer Technical Guys claim. You only earn a commission when a sale is actually made through one of your affiliate links.
These big companies have far better ways to spend their advertising budget than on random and ineffectual link spamming.
There is no “job”. It’s fake like everything else on the website.
This Is Likely Promoting Other High Ticket Programs
It’s not always easy to determine the exact reasons behind this series of scam sites, but by all reports they feed people into other high ticket (expensive) affiliate platforms like Aspire, MOBE and others.
Whether the funnel takes members through to one of the two I just mentioned above or not, the goal is to sell you more products at the end of the day. They don’t just want your joining fee. That’s just the very beginning of the upsells. The aim is for them to squeeze as much money out of people as they can get.
Many people these days are on the hunt for some extra money that can be earned in their spare time. They don’t want to upset their daily routine, so they look online for opportunities to earn. Along come Computer Technical Guys with their easy and juicy offer, and many people who just don’t know any better can’t resist.
Generally it’s those who are inexperienced with making money online who tend to fall victim to the scams, unfortunately.
What I Like
- There is nothing I even remotely find positive about Computer Technical Guys
What I Don’t Like and Red Flags
- Linda Taylor isn’t real. It’s just an alias
- The site is filled with fake testimonials
- The kink posting job doesn’t exist
- There are no limited spots. They’ll take anyone
- The videos just feature hired actors from Fiverr
- There’s no way major corporations will spend money on link posting
- These are feeder sites into other high ticket platforms
- The news features are faked as well
- I’ve reviewed more than 30 of these same scams by now
- The joining fee is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to spending, as there will be many upsells
- If you join, you’ll be giving these known con artists your personal details as well as your credit card information – Not a wise move
How Much Does Computer Technical Guys Cost?
The price to join the fake Computer Technical Guys platform is a cool $97. Like I said though, that’ll just be the first thing you pay for. Once inside you’ll be hit with many upsells that get more and more expensive. They’ll tell you that you can’t make the promised $379 a day for just one hour’s work unless you buy their other useless products.
It’s all just a major con with one end goal – Getting as much of your money as possible.
Is Computer Technical Guys a Scam?
Of course this is a scam, just like all its sister sites. I mean, if they really have a job for people, then why are they charging nearly a hundred bucks to apply for the job? That just doesn’t happen in real life.
Everything about their opportunity, their website, their testimonials, presenter, news endorsements, everything is totally fake. It’s all lies.
I wouldn’t even risk giving these people my email address, let alone my hard-earned cash.
I Make Money Online With Affiliate Marketing and You Can Too!
Affiliate marketing doesn’t work the way the Computer Technical Guys make out it does. Affiliate marketing can be a very lucrative online business when done the right way. It’s how I’ve been making a living online for a few years now.
One of the main reasons I was able to be successful was because I did some training that showed me the right way to go about it. Anyone can be successful at affiliate marketing if they are shown how, and really want to do it.
It’s a very simple business model that takes no capital to get started. You can work from home in your own time and the sky is the limit when it comes to earning income. Best of all, after a while much of that money comes in passively.
In order to help my readers out so they understand more, I’ve written a FREE make money online guide that explains how it all works. To read it, all you have to do is click on the banner below. It only takes a few minutes to read and well worth it.
When you start reading my guide you’ll get a more thorough understanding of how affiliate marketing works and just what a simple business model it really is. There are loads of advantages to running an online business, and you’ll learn more about those too. Most importantly I run you through details of the training I did that led to my success, training that is completely FREE to get started.
