Be very careful of ads that claim to have exclusive information on scams. Exercise caution when you are reading excerpts and advertisements if they promise they can deliver ‘all the secrets of gurus that they do not want you to know’.
People who use the ‘scam’ card are often bigger scammers who wave the ‘it’s a scam’ flag to scoop up money from vulnerable consumers who are willing to pay for these books that promise to expose investors’ secrets and real estate scams. When you see an ad that claims to know who is and who isn’t scamming you, look carefully for a link to their own money making site within the body of their blog. Even better, look for a request that asks you to register your contact information with their mail order company. This page will allow them to access your computer and email account so they can bombard you with their scam spam. They will play on your suspicions and vulnerabilities to convince you to pay a little more money each time for some shocking new information on yet another scam artist.
These types of ads use language such as, ‘Dean Grasiozi’s strategy is a scam! Sign up here for a list of the best gurus!’ ‘We can help you make more money than Dean Grasiozi! Fill out your name and email address for instant access to the book that will expose the real estate guru. We will let you in on secrets that will make you even more money!’
Read the language. Look for proof of their claims. If they are a legitimate scam-exposing organization, they would have a toll-free system for reporting a scam. They would certainly not use the same logic they are criticizing to convince you to buy their own book. Be a wise consumer not a gullible one.
