A get-rich-quick scheme promises that participants can make money fast with basically no skill, effort or time in a very short period of time. The hottest get-rich-quick schemes offer unlimited profits through various easy-money opportunities, but the only person who is gonna make money fast is the author himself.

Some people do get-rich-quick through the lottery, inheritances, business ideas, property, inventions, etc. Knowledge, luck or hard work is required to make money, don’t let anyone convince you otherwise. If these systems worked, wouldn’t everyone be using them? The thought of easy money may be appealing, but success generally requires hard work.
