One very important lesson I have learned, is that a good Report Scam never dies. It just lives on and on. I sure can’t explain it. You would think that a scam would run its course, steal from as many people as possible over a short time, and be done before the law gets too close. For some scams, that’s not true.
Is the old saying by Will Rogers the most likely reason for it. There’s a sucker born every minute. What a cruel thing to say. But what else can explain it. And is this a true statement? We try to figure out what it is that makes us do the exact thing’s that we know are wrong. Does that make us a sucker?
You know, that feeling you get when you send some money to someone you don’t know, hoping that whatever it is you send that money for, is real. You think to yourself, boy, I just hope this works, or, I am stupid for doing this. Does that make us a sucker?
And you would have to think that the thief that is running the scam, has to get caught up to. Let’s say you read an ad, and it says to send $ 49.99, and start to make $5,000 a week within 30 days. You see this and you just laugh. What a scam you say. Then you just go on with what you were doing and forget it. A month later, you see this same ad again and think, man, that ad is still running.
What a joke. Then, you just continue on to whatever it is that you were doing, and forget about it. Then maybe a couple more months go by, and you happen to see this same ad. Now you start to think. IS THIS A SCAM? Unfortunately logic does not fit. Your beginning to think that maybe there is something to this. How can this still be running if it were a scam? They can’t be running this ad over and over if it was a scam. Right? Can they?
I know there is law enforcement agencies that scour the Internet looking for scams, and tracking down the thieves that run them. If this is still running, there must be some truth to the ad. Now, you begin to think, hey, maybe it is real. Maybe this is the one that will work for me. I don’t want to miss out on something good. I don’t want to miss my opportunity to make the income that I’ve been looking for.
So, guess what? Yup. You do it. You send your money and you get the info that you sent your hard earned money for, and then it hits you. And it hits you hard. Like a brick. A scam! Why the heck did I do it? Am I stupid? Why did I do it. I know better than that, don’t I?
Does knowing better really help? NO. Why? It’s simple. Because I still went ahead and did it. Even though I knew better. What a fool. A sucker. Dumb, Dumb, Dumb. Who is to blame? Is there someone to blame? I guess we need to put on the brakes and hold up and think it out.
So, you start to think, really think. Am I stupid? Can it be that all these so called scams that I have spent so much money on , over the years, not be scams? Can it be that it’s been ME all along. Can it be that most, if not all the program’s and business opportunities, that I have spent so much money and time on over the years, been REAL?
Is it that I’m just not smart enough to make money from home. Or, not cut out to run my own business. Maybe I’m not looking at it the way I should. Could it just be too hard for me to follow the instruction’s, and direction’s I’m told to, in order to succeed? Maybe there is no explanation. Maybe what will be will be. And just maybe, I am a sucker that was born in that minute.
My name in Don Paquin, known as Poppss online. I’ve been online for over 10 years and have run into more scams than I care to remember. I created a blog and included some of the scams that I ran into. I must love to be punished, because it seems that I have run into one scam after another. I have much more than original articles of my experience.
I have included some personal stories, affiliate programs that I researched, and links to my other blogs. I am as honest as I can possibly be about all the articles I write, and all the information that I include in the content. I only write about my personal knowledge on the subject of scam’s.
