The copy used on many sites is designed to grab people’s attention and to fill them with a desire for the good life – a life that can be achieved if you buy the program on offer.

These types of offers are truly not pure scams as the information that you buy is usually genuine but in truth it is very difficult to make money with the information that is sold.
