I’m liable to get kicked to the curb, run over by the bus, or shunned for this...but that’s okay.
First, my POV: I happen to believe that a certain so called” business model” is immoral and unethical, and every company is “scammy”.
That being said, for a forum like this, I personally don’t see any value in titling a thread, “ABC is a scam”, and not presenting any evidence.
Titling a thread “ABC: opportunity or scam?”, then presenting evidence seems to me more useful, and allows critical evaluation and encourages others to post researched tidbits. Or even “Is ABC a scam?”, and again presenting evidence to support your claim is useful.
Some things are clearly scams: they are fraudulent schemes that if authorities find them, will be shut down.
Everyone recognizes that many questionable industries litter the internet with “it’s a scam-no it’s not” pre-emptive blogs to lure folks.
Have a look-see at some of the blogs/info sites about this “industry” (wink-wink) already linked on this forum—perhaps you’ll see what I mean...perhaps not.
Perhaps I have a valid point...perhaps not...
Perhaps I’ve already started a dumb thread before this... :o
Okay, I’m done...please be gentle...
