Even a savvy old dog like me can be FOOLED, please read.
A couple of months back I found someone on eBay who was selling a course on how to make oodles of bux on ebay. One person actually bought the course and reported back to me. Here is an email I rec'd last night, please read it, valuable point made.
In an effort to generate some chatteling - case studies - I made a small GOOF.
Just a HEads Up for your sowpub readers.
The person you found on ebay who makes 6 figures on Ebay that charges 500, 2500.00 10grand to
pupils who want to learn his system.
Is a wolf in sheeps clothing.
Heather is actually Roger.
And After he persuades you by phone to p aypal him AROUND Ebay - and you part with your 500.00 bucks.
He walks you thru his system. (Which HE himself doesn't use anymore cuz the margins have shrunk to 3 to 5.00 an item due to the fact he has taught 42 others!)
A - He shows you how to "Borrow" items off the 1000 best s eller list on amazon.
B - Steal the photo and the copy
C - Add some key words
D - LIST them on Ebay
E - When they s ell - you pretend to the AMAZON seller that YOU are a b uyer. Type in YOUR B uyers' name, address
F - The Amazon supplier ships direct to THEM (not you)
Roger claims he can put up 200 items a nite
I could only manage 10 and none of them s old. (I did panic when 1 guy wanted me to over-night him an air mattress!)
AFTER 5 days... of waiting for Roger to Come up with more ideas.
I decided my idea of HADES - would be handling 100's of orders at 3.00 to 5.00 each
Told Him, "What ELSE ya got. I can't do this. It's not working."
CUZ he was bragging about what his 2500.00 and 10Grand customers get and his other wholesale warehouse sources.
Got Upset when I wanted my 500.00 back.
I waited a month.
Thought I'd pass this on to you.
This guy, Roger is a crook.
And the lesson is:
Even for Old Dogs. BE careful what people put up on the Internet and do your DUE DILIGENCE.
It is at once, an exciting time to be Online and also a time for listening to old gut warnings, such as; if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is...do your homework.
