In past, I’ve gone to extreme of setting aside what I called ‘Idiot Money’. This was capital which I knew would be lost forever, and ventured into MLM programs, Pyramids, Gifting Schemes, Matrixes, and many others. I did this just to prove my point, there is no basis for anyone to say something doesn’t work, if they have never tried it themselves.
I’m sure not all programs fail, or never deliver, but MANY DO FAIL.
Here’s a little story to leave you with….. a true story…. Something I did a few years ago as a joke. I ran an advert to a Safelist…. Like this:-
HOW not TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE IN A SECOND
This REVOLUTIONARY new program is changing way GURUS think about internet PROFITS
BE THE FIRST (I am) and make a FORTUNE.
A BRAND NEW 0x0 (zero by zero) reversing, infinite matrix Gifting Program with forced spill-over directly into my account, is GUARANTEED to make me a FORTUNE.
Simply gift to me $100 to my account, then sit back, relax and do absolutely nothing (that’s just what I do).
I am going to make a pile of cash size of my house from this.
Note – your $100 gift to me will be gratefully received – thank you. The more people who gift money to me, more profit I make.
For more information on giving me money, contact…. XXXXXX
So… what did you think? Do you think it sounds interesting and something you could join? If you did…. Pack up your computer and return it to shop where you bought it from.
Most (hopefully) all you are laughing, thinking that Ad was complete nonsense and no-one would ever fall for it.
WRONG. Even though it was worded clearly, even though it was absolute silliness, I still had TEN people contact me, asking where to send their $100
CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!!
Well, it’s true. Needless to say I did NOT take their money, I explained it was a joke, worded in such a way to prove clearly it was a joke.
After some thought, each of them went away feeling very silly.
Not everything in life is as clear as that. Not everything is what it seems.
Don’t get sucked into silly claims that fly around Internet.
Think first……. Then think again.
