In Response To: SiteSell, AdSurfDaily, etc etc etc (m)
An update on AdSurfDaily:
Hope for scam victims: AdSurfDaily gives up claim to millions
>> Thanks, Tom! Yes, it was Profit lance.
>> The work-at-home board seems to think highly of it.
>> Why I asked is because a friend introduced me to SiteSell (SBI, Ken
>> Envoy) and also Teaching Sells site. SBI costs 300$, TeachingSells costs
>> 200$. Is there anything else? I checked and found out TONS of other stuff,
>> and of course, a lot of it scam. I am in need of seriously revamping my
>> site, HumanRemodeling.com, and trying to figure out how to make money on
>> bodywork business as a healer. So, what to try?
>> So, what is real and what is scam? Yesterday a friend tried to rope me
>> into AdSurfDaily. That thing sounds too fishy, because I cannot find any
>> real response on the Internet except the adds from the company itself. My
>> friend is all excited but he hasn;t gotten a check yet and seems like he
>> is into trying to make money without any work. AdSurfDaily sounds like
>> money invested into one's one advertising, except that people seeing my
>> site might not be the ones interested in my service.
>> The stuff in the toolbox on this page seems pretty good, I havent
>> check Cory Rudl but have checked Derek Gehl stuff and imo it is top notch
>> education. I think he makes main money by having people fly over to
>> consult as to how to redo their business, that's 5K for a short stint. And
>> of course all the subscriptions. Also, after looking at some of his
>> customers' sites and some of the SBI customers' sites, they are alike in
>> many ways, but Derek seems too provide more, and it does cost more.
>> So, if Profit Lance (or SBI) is not in FIB toolbox, but the
>> work-at-home board seems to think highly of it, is it because Profit Lance
>> is so-so, or is it because the owner of this site didn't update and/or is
>> not their affiliate?
>> Sorry if this sounds naive :)
>> As for the sales letter, after studying so many in these few days of
>> research, all those letters follow the same steps: checking out all the
>> emotional buttons, greedy buttons, giving a few hints as to what GLORY you
>> will get - but not how - and then threatening to pull out soon if you
>> don't sign up immediately. Actually, when you do say 'cancel" on many
>> of those sites a new window appears with a "live" chat trying to
>> give you a deal to still buy.
>> Also, I can see now which sites come from which "coaches".
>> ALL of them have the same look - banner on top, buttons on the left.
>> Better ones, like from SBI or Derek G., have text that skillfully
>> glorifies the product and makes big promises. On their sites, a new window
>> shows up (clogging the main web page so that you cannot really read it -
>> but it gives you a little time to read the promises and you can still see
>> the big promises underneath) telling you to sign up for some newsletter.
>> There is always something new to grab and sign for, but you cannot take it
>> with you. Derek Gehl (spelling?) has a customer aproductions.com or
>> something like that, for a guy that sells music. It is a masterful site -
>> there are music samples that you can listen to and then buy (but with
>> embedded voice advertising the site, (so that you cannot copy the music
>> for free) etc. Derek Gehl uses the same trick with his stuff too - eg when
>> you read his report, it is not possible to copy and paste it (yes, I
>> tried) or to save it, you can only print it (I haven't tried that yet).

| 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.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
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!!).
