first, may I wish you all a VERY happy, festive, and face-stuffing Thanksgiving weekend…and drive safely since it seems EVERYBody is driving and not flying this weekend.
NOW then….I just played a bit here in Chicago clubland, searching through ALL the clubs listed under Get Cash Online or Home Business or Business Opportunities…and found something I think is (a) hilarious and (b) sad and (c) a bit statistically confusing (d) payday loans services.

First, we’ve all agreed that the numbers just don’t work–by which I mean that if you recruited the old 5 who get 5 or whatever formula, you’d run out of warm, breathing bodies in no time. The reason I bring this up is this: From what I’ve seen, and even checking posting dates to see if its current–these folks keep recycling the SAME OLD LINES and SAME OLD PATENTLY FALSE headline claims. “Make millions dollars now!” “No work, all cash!” “Do You Dare To Dream?” etc. etc. You all know the lingo.
My point is (a) its the same old crap not EVEN in new clothing–same words, same slogans, same interchangeable income claims and snake oil, but (b) they KEEP USING IT and you’d think, running those total numbers again, that everyone who COULD have heard this crap HAS ALREADY heard it by now, right?
So how in the world do they keep recruiting people? Either our number analogy is wrong OR there’s some sort of mass amnesia hypnosis going on here. I mean, presuming that everyone who was ever gonna take these bulls**t claims seriously has already (a) tried and (b) been burned at least once or twice….don’t these people need a new act by now? And if so, why do they still sell the same words and phrases, and DO THEY WORK?
I’m confused–and amazed. I mean, it doesn’t take much savvy or street smart to see how patently obviously bogus these things are..however there was ONE clue: On the few where I read the actual postings, there was a VERY high preponderance of people from Indonesia, Thailand, etc. etc. responding and asking for info. So as the mass-market American culture expands to the rest of the world, I guess these slogans are “new” to them at least. Is that it? Or does anyone see something else going on here?
Its so pathetic to see the SAME old crapola recycled over and over again so urgently and desperately/sincerely by these folks. Anyhow, and amusing hour on the web.

Well dan there are a few weak minded people that would join a lenders program even if the numbers don’t make sense. If a person loses a job or their marriage is in trouble….they may be vulernable to this sort of crap. What i hated the most was being tricked to see this sort of plan a few years back. I was looking for work in sales and answer a boggus sales job ad. This man flashed a few photo copied checks of 70,000 dollars and told me how easy it was. I think the loan industry has saturated the market with hype. Most people listen to a few plans and think wow these lender reps are real losers haha. I guess what keeps the industry going is a few weak minded people. I’ve even read how they sponsor people in a book by a top marketing giant. He wrote keep contacting your prospect every few months after you show them the plan. This person wrote that in a few months maybe your prospect lost a job or things changed in their lives.
Now you know why the bigger B2Bs have gone overseas. As their domestic markets shrink, they export their “product” to new markets. Now they are into the most naive and vulnerable third-world countries. It was my experiences in Colombia and the Philippines — both extremely poor countries — that confirmed the fact that I simply could not continue my cashpayday involvement. I saw people who had actually taken out BANK LOANS to finance the purchase of their sales kit in Colombia (average monthly income there at the time was equivalent to about $165 US). Then the greedy diamonds twisted their arms to get them on standing order tape, functions, etc. It was pathetic.
