In Response To: Has this one been discussed yet? (Tracy)
First of all, I can't imagine that someone like yourself would even bother with these types of "products". I read here in the archives where you said that you run a successful business and that you are in the top 2% of earners.
Sounds like you are doing well for yourself. Just keep on doing what you are doing. Why bother with this crap? You obviously don't need this kind of "info".
Or maybe that was another Tracy?
Now on to the ebook...
After reading most (but admittedly not all) of the sales page, it sounds to me like he's going to suggest that you use black hat techniques to drive traffic to your site. The main technique he will tell you to use (if there are even others he will suggest) is search engine cloaking.
However, he, like the the Rich Jerk, will not tell you that search engine cloaking and other black hat SEO techniques are no easier to benefit from than white hat SEO techniques. They will not tell you that in order to be successful at BH SEO, you must know a good deal about WH SEO and that you will spend the same amount of time (if not more) with BH as you would with WH.
If you're going to waste your time with BH SEO then you might as well just go WH because at least with WH you don't have to try to cover your tracks and you won't be "looking over your shoulder" all the time and worrying if you are going to get banned and lose everything (if you had anything to begin with).
What's funny is that he tells you, I think, that he'll tell you exactly what to do. I bet he won't. He'll most likely just say "Go here, buy this, and do that" but he will leave out the major details. WHY? Because he doesn't have the details. He never actually did what he is going to suggest that you do.
IF he really had become rich doing the things he says he is going to tell you to do, then why is he selling it to you?
If he is rich and he really wants to help others, they why would he charge so much or even anything for his info? The answer is because he isn't and he is just trying to make money off of those that are gullible (the main and most profitable target market for these types of "products").
OK, I know, I know. The rebuttal to what I just said is that you have to invest money to make money. That's what other slime buckets and marketers will tell you. But it holds no water here and is irrelevant. If he is rich like he says he is, then there really is no reason for him to share the info, even for free. It would be a disaster to his "richness" to go around telling everyone his concepts on getting rich whether he charges for it or not.
OK, OK. The other rebuttal is that saying what I said makes a person worthless and negative minded and therefore, even if I buy the info and read it, I will never get rich or succeed no matter what because I simply don't have the "mindset" to get there. To this I say..."Yaaaaaaaawn".

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
