Don't get scammed now

Old trick: barker at a fair tells his audience to 'watch out for pick pockets'. People instinctively check to see that their wallet is still there. The barker's accomplice then knows where the people keep their wallets.

Denny's scam review tells us that if we don't read his page 'we will get scammed'. After such an obviously untrue and exagerated statement how could I not read further?

The 'scam warning' page is of course an advertisement for two 'make money fast' type schemes. They use the 'soft-hard-sell' technique of telling people that they can't expect to make $10,000 month from these schemes but they can make $1,500.

Of course if these were genuinely disinterested reviews they would describe the mechanism behind the purported scheme.
