One of the things the internet has ushered in is the U-TUBE GURU who claims to have an answer to all of your financial ills. Most of what I have seen in my short time online is a recruiting type scheme. A person puts up a video, maybe a website like AlanSills.com*|*Adding value and support for the entrepreneur and small business professional, then tells you about a great deal, for a fee you can get in. Of course they earn a commission from your entry into the program. The actual program itself seems almost secondary, just has to sound good.
In these two videos Al Sills promotes his affiliate link to the Elevation Group. Those who have read these pages know all about Forex Scams and returns of 100%+, in fact anyone who has been around knows if it sounds to good to be true, it is. I will save the reader the suspense of how it turned out, but think a train wreck meets your wallet.
One of the things an astute reader will notice is the absence of negative or skeptical comments on many of the videos. All aces as they say, but here is the not so secret trick. The people who manage these channels simply delete and block anyone who dares question their great opportunities. Al has blocked several friends of mine from his U-Tube Channel, so as they say, it is time for home court advantage.
I am left asking several questions... Is this person qualified to evaluate business opportunities? Does this person think these are legitimate businesses opportunities? Does this person know they are promoting scams and not care? Or does this person, know a good thing and only want to get you in on the deal?
One of my favorite sites on all thing Scammy, with a tip of the hat to the foul mouthed fake robot.
