Get-rich-quick scheme is a plan to acquire high rates of return for a small investment. Most such schemes promise this high rate of return while at the same time promising that they are easy and risk-free.

Most get rich schemes also promise that little skill, effort, or time is required. They often assert that wealth can be obtained while also working at home. Legal and quasi legal get-rich-schemes are frequently advertised on infomercials and in magazines and newspapers. Ones that are illegal or scams are often advertised on the Internet through spam or through cold calling. Most get-rich-quick schemes are usually advertised by others, although many will devise their own schemes. Some forms of advertising for these schemes market books or compact discs about getting rich quick rather than engaging them to invest directly in a scheme in itself.

It is clearly easy to potentially get rich quickly if one is prepared to accept very high levels of risk — this is the premise of the gambling industry. However, gambling offers the near-certainty of completely losing the original stake over the long term, even if it offers regular wins along the way. Economic theory states that risk-free opportunities for profit are not stable, because they will quickly be exploited by arbitrageurs. Nevertheless, many people long for wealth, and find these schemes highly desirable.

When you come across any Get-rich-quick Scheme, please remember the words of president Theodore Roosevelt: "The things that will destroy America are ... the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life."
