Don’t Get Scammed

Has this happened to you?  Some poor soul bought into the hype and got royally ripped off buying “packages” from some scammer.  By the time they call you, these folks are not only struggling but too broke to move forward.  I am done with this silliness.

Dan Janal was in the Internet trenches before I even knew what it was.  He sees these schemes a mile away and now he’s calling the game.  When I found out about his new book, Internet Marketing Confidential, I stopped everything and checked it out.  As usual, Dan Janal did not let me down.  And he didn’t pull any puches either.

What hooked me: his unique blend of insights and organization.  Dan actually lists all the lies these idiots tell and then lists all the things they “forgot” to tell you.  This is a blow-by-blow playbook about how the scams work.  I have never heard such clear explanations.

Heads up:  Dan busts everybody here, including us.  He calls BS on all of it, even the lies we tell ourselves that make us vulnerable to these scammers.  As I read that section, I kept thinking, “yep, guilty as charged”.

Check out his “how-not-to-go-broke” book here.  And yes, I’ve known Dan for years; no, I am not getting a commission if you buy his book.  I am telling you this because I am tired of the stories.  The ones I hear on the phone as well as the ones I hear in my head.
