Rip Off Advertising

So, here I am checking out my pathetic homepage (hey, aren't I on sabbatical????) and I notice there are a bunch of gun related ads running in the Google Ads box. Cool, lets see what they say.

Hmm, one says

Guns Surveys
We'll pay you $75 right
now to complete a simple
survey! (aff)
PaidSurveysOnline.com


Well, I think, thats worth at least a click, isn't it? And I do (even though its in violation of Google Ad Sense's terms).

Interesting page, they purport to pay you to sit at home and take surveys.
Just look at how much you can make taking surveys online!

If you took 2 surveys a day @ $10 per survey =  $140 per week or $560 per month or $6,720 per year!

If you took 4 surveys a day @ $10 per survey =  $280 per week or $1120 per month or $13,440 per year!

If you took 4 surveys a day @ $20 per survey = $560 per week or $2240 per month or $26,880 per year!

Sounds like an offer too good to be true?

Of course it does, and of course it is.
In order to participate you need to pay a one time registration fee (payable by Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Discovery, Dinner Club, JCB, Paypal, eCheck, etc) of $59.95 discounted this ONE TIME ONLY TO $34.95

Oh jumping jee willikers. What fucking rip off artists.

good to see a blog dealing with credit card issues. Credit cards are a necessity in Western Life. Sadly they can be one of our biggest liabilities. I have a site dealing with clever credit card use. You might like to take a look

Shop online today. Forget driving to the mall when you can just click the mouse and order from your favorite store. No traffic to deal with
