So tonight has been kind of annoying as I’ve had to battle my site. I hope it’s still up and running, but if it’s not then maybe you can’t see this anyway.
Drained of energy, I poked around doing routine tasks like emptying my spam folder. Lo and behold, I saw an e-mail which was too good not to click on (dumb, maybe). Ewen Chia “Pet”* has come up with a “set it and forget it” system which will make you money on autopilot.
I didn’t actually click on the link, but Googled it to find a nice website which displays the product in all its glory (if nothing else, check it out for covering all the classics of such “deals” including yellow highlights, slashed prices, and screenshots of “actual profits”). Actually, there’s more glory here than in the e-mail.
It claims that the net profit from one account in two weeks was over $500k. And you can have multiple accounts.
No wonder Chia Pet is so generous with giving away the secret! He must be a bazillionaire’ pulling in a million a month.
It’s handy that you don’t need your own site, staff, writing, customers, anything. I’m not really sure where the money comes from. Maybe it’s like on Office Space, where they’re capturing those tiny fractions of cents.
Ok, I hadn’t planned to spend quite that long on that part. Because here’s what I’m coming too…what’s so scary about these sites.
What’s scary is that people purchase this stuff. Maybe a few people are pulling in great salaries, have $27 to spare, and think “What the hell, all I’ll lose is $27.”
I’m afraid, though, that more of these people are hopeful and in a bad financial situation and hope to find their path out. It’s like buying lottery tickets, though I think you have a better chance with the lottery tickets. This kind of thing takes money from those who are poor and desperate and gives them nothing valuable in return.
I can identify in some ways with those people who want to get rich faster and more easily. Making money isn’t easy. It requires getting up and going to work, maybe at an unrewarding job for a pittance (if they’re the desperate ones). If you’re freelancing or un/under-employed, it also involves the energy of job-hunting.
There are days when I look at the powerball things and am tempted to play. Fortunately, I’m such an underbuyer that I couldn’t bear to part with a single dollar for something I don’t need.
It scares me that there are people who are ok with scamming the vulnerable. It frightens me that they can sleep at night. It’s the same fear I feel when I think of the men who molested some of my friends as children, the fear that people like that can exist. How can preying on the defenseless be condoned? How can it be lived with? And how does it come about? Did they come up with it as a way to escape their own poverty, kind of like many molesters were molested?
Ok, wow that took a dark turn. Who knows, maybe this system really does work and nets people millions. Maybe I’d never have to work a day in my life if I just tried it (kind of like the interest here). But I’m not going risk giving a scammer $27 of my money. No way, no how.
And two side-notes: One, people in Crazy Fox commercials are paid actors not talking about typical earnings. It says so on their site. Two, all rationality aside, wouldn’t it be cool if something like this actually worked? (three, see it’s that kind of thinking that makes these scammers money!)
