Peter Schiff on the Debt Ceiling Rt America 28 July 2011 (Plus an Update to my Scam Alert Blog from July 12)



July 28, 2011 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: BTH.DL

As for my "Scam Alert" update, if you're not familiar with that blog (and are interested), that blog is here.

Well today, the woman who was here for a half hour was back again for another 10 minutes to try to push it on me again.

At this point I would like to say that honestly, if this was such a legit business that she was doing so well with, why would she come back to me of all people after our previous encounter.

Sadly, I don't have too much more to add.  I'm sure it would've been entertaining had you have been here (and I'm sure it was for the people who came into the store while I was ranting until the woman must've finally felt embarassed and left).

The most frustrating part of her visit was her complete denseness with understanding how the product is being falsely hyped.  Simply put, she somehow couldn't comprehend my explanation that there is no way that 170 calories is equal to 8,660 calories, which is pretty much what she believed.  She "argued" that maybe (pretty much admitting she's clueless and willing to guess at the answer) it's because it's been "scientifically concentrated."  To that I countered that what she's saying would be the equivalent of me holding up a penny and saying it was worth ten dollars because it was "super concentrated money."

This woman is a terrible embassidor for the product.  Like I said, I don't think it's a "scam", but the video is purposefully misleading and this woman is beyond dense and I feel sorry for anyone who follows her nutritional advice because her knowledge when it comes to nutrition is less than woefully inept.

In hindsight, my one regret is that I didn't try to get myself invited to a large meeting so I could voice my concerns to a much larger audience.  That would've been fun.

If you have her number (or the previous person's), you could feign a change of heart.

Be sure to record it for our amusement!

Considering that I couldn't have been more adamant about not doing that MLM business without physically throwing the woman out the first time and she still came back a second time, I'd say the odds are better than 50/50 that she'll be back for a third.

Sadly I never got a card from her because I still had the one from the first woman.

Now that I've thought about it a bit I am dying for the opportunity to have a room full of people questioning the marketing of the product and realize that the company has purposefully produced a fraudulent video.

If I can I will try to have it videoed.
