Internet MArketing Conference. - scam ?
Juz got an invitation for 2 to a 90 mins "Internet Marketing Conference" at some hotel. That comes with free Dinner/Business organizers/online auction courses which worth ($189)...
Problem is the leaflet didnt state what this conference is about except that it teaches the secret to create wealth on the net in just 90 mins... The way they market its reminds me of some "Time-share" gimmick on another thread.. Anybody been to such events b4? Or issit some kind of scam. Wish to find out more first b4 I waste my time taking half day leave to attend the conference.

Thats what most ppl think in the beginning. But the organizer will insist u bring alone yr wife, girlfriend, love ones. Then the talk will begin, then they will talk and talk and talk, at some time, you will feel pity to see yr love ones suffering, feeling hungry, tired, guilty, then u may just think: why dont I sign it so we can all go home.....

I have an idea. They ask for 2 persons to go together, they may hint that its husband-wife or boyfriend-girlfriend but never state clearly. Why dont 2 of you (2 guys) go together, show yourselves at the reception, and observe how they response/react.
Remember to bring yr camera, and show us photo of their facial expression when they see u!
