    Do you not think that he will use all of the people he has had signup to this and create an effective email marketing campaign whereby the emails showing how he is doing are populated with ads?

    Or is this against his rules do you think?

    Why do you even need to sign up?
    Who knows he is only after your email address and when he has a million or so sell them for $0.2 cents to some spammer.

    He could just say what the site is from the start, signing up is just bullshit.

    Just a tactic for him to create an email list where he could sell you all sorts of crap...like an ebook how to create $15.000 in a month.

    ...Reminds me of an old scam.

    Scammer place an ad in the newspaper that goes like this,

    Want to make $15.000 in a month?
    I will let you in on the secret for only $10 so what are you going to lose?
    Yeah, maybe $10 right?
    But for $10 you could... actually not could, really make $15.000 in one month!

    I do it every month and i am selling you my business secret for only $10!
    You could lose a $10 dollar bill or you could gain $15.000 every month!
    That's chump change compared to the $15.000 every month you will be recieving from my experience as a business man with innovative new ideas and recieving rewards and success from them.

    What are you going to loose? That's right nothing!
    First rule of business is you need to take a little risk now and then!
    And this risk is not going to hurt you one bit! Maybe a couple of drinks less in the bar but you can get over that, can't you?

    Every month $15.000!

    Send a $10 dollar bill and of course your return address to:

    John Dooley
    Yorkshire Road 123
    New Hampshire
    1378 DR
    England


    I saw this scam being explained by an English scammer on TV that did various scams that made him substantial amounts of money, did time and could not stop what he was doing...as he explained.

    He said the point of above scam is that there always people taking a chance for a tenner and will send their money to him in a letter.

    And by topping it of he actually send those people a letter back with the following note:

    If you want to earn $15.000 per month place the same kind of ad i have placed in the newspaper and you will... just like me!

    :D :D :D

    And he actually made £10.000! Police had nothing on him as well since he was asking money for giving out tips on how to be wealthy.
    But of course it's a scam.

    Something tells me the above is the modern version.

    what if we have someone doining the exact same thing he says he is doing. Make it a bit more intresting by having a group of people doing it. Of course other products but the same idea.

    im regretting it alread.. it tells you in the site that he pruchased certain software. there is then a link, and an opportunity to buy the softwre yourself. A coincidence? i dont think so. a v v clever marketing ploy to sell his own stuff under a different name.

    Who cares if its a scam or not? The blog address is above so you can read it for free without giving your email details. As long as you don't click on his affiliate links you will be fine.

    From reading his blog the guy clearly knows a thing or two and I think I may learn something.

    I agree. If he can do it with one eye, I can do it with two!

    If you're skeptical then just use the direct blog link and don't sign up. Personally, I found the one piece of software that he suggested so far extremely interesting (although I haven't purchased it yet), and he made it very clear that it was an affiliate link.

    I've found the approach he's using so far quite an eye opener, and if I have to pay for the lesson with a bit of webmaster spam now and again, I reckon that's a bargain!

    Hi Everyone,

    Dan here, and I would like to address a few of the comments made in this post. I know most of you don't know me, that is fine, I am not out here claiming to be the next John Reese.

    I am however an Internet Marketer and I mainly create niche products and content sites.

    Granted, there was an affiliate link in one of the posts, but I did include a big disclaimer which is copied below:

    Disclaimer: The link above is my affiliate link, I will earn money if you subscribe. Don’t subscribe to something unless you really need it and are going to use it.

    This site is a genuine attempt at turning $150 into $15,000 in 30 days or less. Initially the site was created for the amusement of Frank and Ed's Ultras group, especially as one of us is going to do the forfeit.

    The namesqueeze page was up on the front of the site before the site launched so I could capture email addresses (well I am an marketer after all), and notify people of the launch.

    There is a direct link to the blog on this forum, so if you don't want to sign up then you sure don't have to.

    I just wanted to clear a few things up and I hope you take this competition in the spirit it was intented and I didn't want this to turn into some kind of flame war.

    Dan
