>> - but is the

The Dry Tech Corporation is genuine. They are located in Canada, and may not want to "lawyer-up" to take on the "lead generator" bizopp.
Dry Tech manufactures and sells their carpet cleaning equipment to people who are in the business of cleaning carpets, and those who want to get into that business. In some markets across the U.S., carpet cleaning is or may be a saturated field, so don't jump in and invest in getting the equipment, vehicle, etc, without surveying your market first.

I wouldn't consider cleaning carpets as joining the "dark side". I'd say you were merely buying a business that you can work actively, or hire others to do the work, while you run the business. If it's profitable, you could even hire a manager to run the business for you.

See first paragraph above.

Have you taken the time to read Scams 101 to see the viable bizopps Lesley has put together. In addition to affiliate marketing, she mentions Kaeser & Blair and their promotional advertising sales opportunity. I've been selling for them for 15 1/2 years, and wouldn't consider going back to employee status.
Good luck at whatever you choose.
A helpful list of criteria for checking out that next business opportunity.

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
