Apple co-founder, engineering whiz and certified ‘bear’ Steve Wozniak normally only tweets from Foursquare: “John Vink’s Monday dinner club. Atkins friendly here. They let you scrape off and eat just the topping! http://4sq.com/nILZSB;” “Filet and lobster. (@ Ruth’s Chris Steak House w/ @myhfhttp://4sq.com/q0tLMZ” and so on.

But today Mr. Wozniak reminded us that it doesn’t matter if you’re a millionaire–nothing beats working from home!

The missive–“I made $781 today working a few hour from home check this out! http://ix.gd/xw5xvxxdaxi“–was quickly deleted. We missed it, but several folks caught Woz’s slip-of-the-tweet around 4:30 p.m., in which he linked to obvious internet scam Online Internet Solutions:

“I basically make $6,000-$8,000 a month online.”- Kelly Richards

I asked her about how she started her remarkable journey. “It was pretty easy, I filled out a short form and got immediate access to the Online Income Solutions. I got the Kit and within a month I was making over $4,000 a month. Its really simple, I am not a computer whiz, but I can use the internet. I fill forms and surf sites, I don’t even have to sell anything and nobody has to buy anything.”

Online giant Google, worth over 100 billion dollars is the most used search engine and internet market place. Google is the #1 internet site in the world, over 50 percent of all internet traffic flows through them everyday. Using Google and the other search engines to make money online has been a eye-opener for Kelly.

There are plenty of scams on the internet claiming you can make $50,000 a month, but that is exactly what they are scams. From my conversation with Kelly, “I am making a good salary from home, which is amazing, under a year ago I was jobless in a horrible economy. I thank God every day that I filled out that form.”

Quickly, Kelly Richards was able to use the simple Online Income Solutions to make it out of the recession.

The links go to an absurdly-long manifesto about how you can make hundreds of dollars a day–the exact amount is different on every page–posting links by generating quick-and-dirty websites. Wait a second, we have to pay $49.95 for a “Kit”?

It seems Woz fell prey to one of the irritatingly-effective phishing scams on Twitter. (See, people who made fun of this reporter at parties? It can happen to anybody.) You’re not the only one, Woz. Now that he’s been got, it’s likely the virus will spread that much more effectively–who would think a link to a “picture of you” from the great and powerful Wizard of Woz would be a scam?
