Your respect for me is not my concern. Operant conditioning is, more specifically, keeping BS pyramid crap off of the board.

NOT the issue of pyramid schemes as a whole. I know what a pyramid scheme is; I've done my research over the years. I was trying to warn buckeyeboy1986..


I was responding to your following statement, which demonstrates that you are clearly ignorant on the topic:

I had a feeling that, with someone of your personality, it would come to this. You didn't even make an effort to understand the connection.

Your respect for other people should be. And don't you dare lie and say "Whatever- I don't care if the world hates me. That's their problem!" Those miserable people always lie to themselves; they know it matters.

No one on this forum is an idiot. But, you, on the other hand, are far worse: You're just a selfish jerk. You'll never be a good, respectable businessman and your ignorance will haunt you unless you change.

But, I'm through dealing with you, and I will not further respond to your arrogant, immature responses. I know your type; winning a pointless heated argument on forums is like winning a gold medal in the olympics to you. You feel like a hero because you can bash other people. Sorry, but you're not receiving another metal to add to your collection this time, big boy.

Take care! Good luck! Goodbye, and don't forget to evaluate your life! Wink

You are probably right, but there are two impediments. 1. This isn't a perfect world, and 2. All work (wading through get-rich-quick posts and deleting the illegal ones) and no play (reading intelligent posts) makes Rolo a grumpy guy. I only have so much to give and it's all gone by the time I see those types. The fact that you have one in your sig puts you into that category...yet...another...'get rich, go to my site!' type.

Selfish? I won't argue. Jerk? Sometimes. Businessman? Who said I wanted to be one? Ignorant? I'm not the one who didn't know what a pyramid was.

Umm...excuse me, but I'm not the one who's heated here.

Look. You haven't figured a thing out here, so let me explain it to you. I hate get-rich-quick schemes. I hate pyramid schemes. The latter are illegal and not allowed here. The former are allowed here, but with certain rules. Constantly, those rules are blatantly disregarded. I am the 'bad cop' and I think people who indulge in such schemes are lazy, irresponsible, and not worth anybody's time.

Adherence to the rules are more important to me than who you are, what you think, or what you feel. (heh, kinda like the Terminator) If I can deter a dozen pyramid posts by giving you a hard time, then I've done my job efficiently and I can go on about reading about the real, proven ways to grow money--which, obviously, you have not read anything past the get-rich-quick schemes, for you would know that I am neither ignorant, nor unintelligent. Also, you would know what my real emotional issues were rather than guessing with blanket statements, for I have mentioned them openly. (Hint: This 'miserable person' sees people as objects. Do you care what an object thinks of you? That negates your first theory, now doesn't it?)

Now quit posturing and doing the very thing your are condemning, acknowledge that you don't know everything, and come here to LEARN and SHARE so we can all PROFIT from it, because, that is MY purpose for being here, to gain knowledge and to share knowledge, not to be 'wanted' or whatever by John Q. Public.

One final thing: When someone calls you something unfavourable, you have a choice. You can react on emotion (which is what you did, and, ironically, accused me of doing) or you can intelligently address the "WTF was that all about?" and be 'the better person' by not losing control while you state your facts.


Now, Put Down That Axe, Eugene, and be cool?

Ouch, my opa once got robbed of 10K. He had a mistrust of banks so he had a ton of cash at home and when he went to see his dad in East Germany someone took his 10K.

He also got roped into a oil well limited partnership. They would sell a well and then say it was a nonperformer and then sell it to someone else.

An uncle of mine got a lawyer and much of that money was returned. Took years and years.

Overall he did well with his investments. Funny you hear more about losses sometimes then the wins.

He sold the same farm three times to developers. Even told them the guy before them couldn't get the developement through. But they all thought they could get it aproved. But when they didn't he would buy his farm back at a fraction of what they paid him for it:)

Probably should have let my opa buy me a farm. But I didn't want to take advantage of him like so many of my realatives.

They really don't work cause they depend on advertising. When the advertising money runs low, they turn to scamming (if not already a scam). And they cause a lot of spam to be posted around the Net. I've only seen one Get Paid to program work, but I won't talk about it here.

I certainly dont want anyone to think I suport schemes, however after a little research I find thier are many different Opinions of what a scheme is. I would argue that Network marketing Operates on the principle of people helping people, yet others would say its just another form of a pyramid. However its no different tha any Bussiness in America in my Educated understanding of how the economy really works. The Owners and , CEOs, and the Banks on Top always get the bulk while us bottom feeders get whats left, LOL. I would also argue that Lotteries are Legalized but have the same effects as Pyramid schemes, But I guess its Ok If The Government or the banks are the founders of a scheme, so long as we the people dont originate and become the benificiaries of one, LOL Principly the arguement is absurd.

I guess I am asking for your definition as this is your site. It could help clarify (or maybe it wouldnt?) to prevent the anoying posts that seem to clutter space and offend people.

-frcisafraud


Interesting,

Yes, in the UK they call just about any plan a scheme, so this is a word which I do not think should be used without offending those from the UK. It has a negative meaning in US, but not elsewhere, so it can be confusing.

Good luck to all, Mike

Pyramid scheme should be one that don't have a product  Reply with quote  

Hi All,

I don't know if my definition is correct. Pyramid scheme should be a scamming opportunity that don't have a genuine product to sell.

It also does not have a logical money making system such that those who join early make the most out of the expenses of those below. There is no chance for the downlines to make more money if they put in more afford to market the product.

Pyramid scheme actually targetted on the greed of individual to make lots of money at the shortest possible time. Either the system is scamming the advertising cost of the participating merchants or making enrolling customers in a money passing up game.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Thank you.

I am doing one of those $5 letters, and making money  Reply with quote  

this is just for you to see that it is legal !!! my emails are NOT in the letter

SO THIS IS NOT A SPAM, BUT THIS IS THE LETTER I SEND AROUND AND IT DOES MAKE ME MONEY.

I'V MADE $500 SO FAR

......................................................................................................

Hi,

I thought you might be interested in making a lot of extra free money alongside of what you are already doing. After all, we could all use some extra income, no matter what we do! How does $20,000 in two weeks sound? It IS possible...

WHAT IF I share with you a way to make some fast and easy cash, using a copy of this letter and the simplest Internet Payment System around? You have most likely seen or heard about "The Letter"; a $5.00 program that was recently televised on 20/20, OPRAH WINFREY, and an article published in the Wall Street Journal on 6/16/2001. If not, here it is!!

Please read all of this, right to the very last sentence. If you don't have time now, then SAVE THIS LETTER, and read it later. Everyone has heard about "PayPal" (if you haven't you will soon) and, when I came across this concept I knew it would work because, as a member of Pay Pal, I had already experienced their efficiency and excellent standing. PayPal is the simplest method of making and receiving payments online anyone has ever seen! Anyone with an email address can join, for FREE! Please read further before you go there...

You can complete this whole process in less than one hour and you will never forget the day you decided to do so! Did I say FAST? By fast I mean 'the speed of the Internet-type fast.' Everything is done on the Internet by E-mail, and, if you abide by the rules, it is NOT considered SPAM, so it's perfectly legal! NEED PROOF? Here are just two testimonials from individuals who decided to invest nothing more than a little of their time.

TESTIMONIALS FROM:

Tony Stevens, Vandenberg AFB, CA:
Hey! I got your e-mail! YOU ROCK! I sent it to all of our frat brothers.....and while I haven't seen my $20 grand yet, I'm
up to $8,285. Hook me up when you run this program again.

Mary Gathers, Columbia, SC:
Hey cuz! This is Mary. I only have one thing to say to you... OH MY GOD! I sent 20 e-mails out like you said and went
on vacation. When I got back, my account was up to over $12,000! I owe you!

If those testimonials donít convince youÖ consider this:

You place your email address on the bottom of the list of three people. If you send out a mere 20 copies of this letter to friends or acquaintances (and thatís a small number to start with, I sent out 100 copies to further guarantee a successful return) and only 50% of those people respond; that is 10 people. Ten people who send out 20 replies means that a potential of 200 people will now have the letter in their inbox with your PayPal email address in the #3 slot on the list.

Lets say that only 10 of those people send out 20 copies (againÖa small
number) and only 50% of them respond, thatís still 100 people that have forwarded this letter with your email address on it. If those 100 people send out 20 copies of this letter, thatís a potential of 2000 people that have received a copy of this letter with your email address in the #2 position on the list.

Letís say those 10 people send out another 20 copies and only get a 50% return in replies. Thatís a total of 1000 people that have received a copy of the letter with your name in the #1 position on the list and who will be sending you $5.00 each. Thatís a total income of $5,000.00 for a Ĺ hour of work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you were to take a larger scenario, such as my example of sending out 100 replies. Using the same percentage of returns (50%), you would make a staggering $62,500.00. If it took you 2 hours: THATíS $31,250.00 AN HOUR!!!!!!!!!!!! Tell me where else you can make that kind of money! Not even Hugh Hefner or Derek Jeter make THAT much!

GETTING STARTED

If you're not already a user, the very first thing you need to do is go to PayPal and SIGN UP. It takes two minutes and PayPal will deposit $5.00 in your account once you start using it. That makes this program FREE!

GO TO http://www.paypal.com

THEN SIGN UP FOR A PREMIER (FREE) ACCOUNT OR YOU'LL BE LIMITED TO ACCEPTING $100 DOLLARS ONLY! YOU WILL MAKE MUCH MORE THAN THIS!
Then send a $5.00 payment from your PayPal account ($5.00 you can earn back from Paypal, which makes this program FREE!) to the FIRST email address in this letter (No.1) along with a note saying "Please add me to your mailing list."

BE PREPARED TO GET EXCITED.... YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED! Don't laugh! Try this while you wait for the others to start working. One half hour of work to get started - no mailing lists. No printing, copying or waiting and the concept is 100% legal (refer to US Lottery Laws, Title 18, Section 1302 and 1341, or Title 18, Section 3005 in the US code, also in the code of Federal Regulations, Volume 16, Sections 255 and 436, which state a product or service must be exchanged for money received).

This version has nothing to do with Postal Laws, as it' EMAIL ONLY.
Here's How It Works. Unlike many other PayPal programs, this THREE LEVEL PROGRAM costs only $5, that's right, only $5 ONCE, which is much more realistic and brings much, much faster results. No cheating can occur (Don't be fooled by other PayPal letters that mention cheaters) as Paypal only allows one Account per person.

Because it is so easy, the response rate is VERY HIGH, VERY FAST-Internet E-mail FAST-and you will start seeing results in less than one week! JUST IN TIME FOR NEXT MONTHS BILLS! You need only mail out 20 copies, to start with. Start right away, as soon as you pay the #1 email address below! Send to personal contacts, reply to people who send their programs to you as they are already working on the web, and they know these programs work. They are already believers in the system!

Once you have paid the $5 to the number one (No. 1) email position, please send an email to the No.3 position with "THANKS I'VE JOINED" in the subject (topic) area, and I'll send you a copy of the "Follow Up Letter" that is FULL of TIPS and HINTS on where to obtain 1 BILLION spam free email addresses to send to, where to find free web based email accounts to send your emails from, instructions on how NOT to lose a web based email account, and much, much MORE. This program is MUCH, MUCH FASTER and has a HIGHER RESPONSE RATE than any other program! Even if you are already in another program, stay with it, but do yourself a favor and DO THIS ONE as well.

START RIGHT NOW! It's simple and will only cost $5.00 max. It will pay off long before others even begin to receive letters! Just give ONE person a $5.00 gift (REMEMBER THOUGH, this $5.00 is the $5.00 YOU GET BACK WHEN YOU START USING YOUR new PayPal account).

That's all! If you already have a PayPal account, please still donate a $5.00 GIFT to the person in the No.1 spot and add your name on the list at No.3 position having moved up the remaining two. Follow the simple instructions and in two weeks you will have approximately $20,000 in your PayPal account!

Because of the VIRTUALLY ZERO INVESTMENT, SPEED and HIGH PROFIT POTENTIAL, this program has a VERY HIGH RESPONSE RATE! All from just one $5.00 transaction that you can get back from PayPal!

Follow These Simple Instructions:

1: Open your free Paypal account, and be sure to open a Premiere Account, as it does not limit you to how much money you can have deposited to your account. Then come back to these instructions.

2: E-mail the $5.00 payment to the FIRST name on the list (#1) along with a "note" in the NOTE AREA of that page, saying "SUBSCRIBE ME TO YOUR MAILING LIST". Be certain to add this note, as this is what KEEPS THIS
LETTER LEGAL. Instructions on how to send a payment are under "SEND MONEY" at the Paypal site. It's so easy! Only the first person on the list gets your $5.00 gift.

3: Edit the list, REMOVING the FIRST EMAIL ADDRESS FROM THE LIST after you have made the $5 payment. Then, move the other two email addresses UP and ADD YOUR PAYPAL EMAIL ADDRESS in the #3 position. Don't
try to add your name in the first place in order to earn money fast! If you do that, you will ONLY reach people you send e-mail to then your name will be immediately removed from the No.1 place and you won't reach thousands of people! But if you add your name on the No.3 place, there will be millions of people receiving and sending e-mails later, when your name is No.1!

4: Send out 20 copies (minimum) of this letter, but only to people you know, or respond to MLM offers. Once you've paid the person in the #1 position, be sure to email the person in the #3 position, with "Thanks, I've Joined" as a topic in the reply. You will then receive a follow up letter that is full of SPAM free hints and tips to insure your success in this version of the PayPal letter.

ALSO NOTE: By sending this letter and the payment via E-MAIL, the response time is much faster... ELECTRONIC TRANSFER INTERNET FAST!

Consider this! Millions of people surf the Internet everyday, all day, all over the world! Here are the 3 people to start with. Sign up, send $5.00 to the first person, move the other two up to 1 & 2 respectively and add your own e-mail address at No. 3. Be sure to use your email address that is associated with your PayPal account.
**************************************

# 1 - XXXXXXXXXXXXX
# 2 - XXXXXXXXXXXXX
# 3 - XXXXXXXXXXXXXX

**************************************
There are fifty thousand new people who get on the Internet every month! An excellent source of email addresses is the people who send you offers by email. The source is UNLIMITED! It boggles my mind to think of all the possibilities! Mail, or should I say 'E-mail', your letter and payment TODAY! It's so easy. One hour of your time, THAT'S IT! To send
your letter by e-mail, copy this ENTIRE PAGE and paste it in a new message of your E-mail.

TO DO THIS:
1. Go in your toolbar to "edit" and "select all"
2. Go in your toolbar to "edit" and select "copy"
3. Start (compose) a new E-mail message
4. Fill in your Address and Subject Box
5. Go to "edit" and "paste"
6. Delete the top name, adding your name and address to the bottom of the list, then simply changing the numbers. Remember, YOUR NAME goes on the BOTTOM and the other 2 names move up. But DO
NOT forget to send $5.00 via PayPal (along with your note) to the position #1 - TOP E-MAIL address before deleting it!

THERE'S NOTHING MORE TO DO.
When your name reaches the first position in a few days, it will be your turn to collect your MONEY! The money will be sent to you by 2,000 to 4,000 people like yourself, who are willing to invest one half hour to receive $20,000 in cash! That's all! There should be a total of $20,000 in $5.00 bills in your mailbox (account) in two weeks. $20,000 for one hour's work! This is real money that you can spend on anything you wish! Just deposit it to your own bank account or spend it directly from your PayPal account! It's just that easy!!! I think it's WORTH IT, don't you?


Thank you and good luck in your ventures.

Sincerely,

Karl
