A silly look at the dangers of DIY.
This advertisement promises that you will earn $1,000. But it charges you $50 to $100 to see the “plan” that will earn you the money. The plan involves paying $260 a week to have postcards like the one here mailed out for you. Supposedly, you start to make money when the people who receive your postcards sign up for the same An inherently deceptive form of multi-level marketing where participants are told they’ll get paid for recruiting other participants, and not necessarily for selling products or services. Typically, participants must pay some sort of initial investment in order to join, and will then earn a commission for each participant they recruit. Unfortunately for the unsuspecting consumers, pyramid schemes are doomed to collapse because the number of potential participants is limited.. Once you send the money, there is no way to tell how many postcards are being sent out on your behalf or how much money you should be owed. You just have to trust these people sight unseen – and that is never recommended.
