On a serious note, I’ve gotten a few emails from people who are concerned about getting scammed by the Jeff Paul System. Well, I want to help, so if you get anything from this blog, this is probably the most important post. Losing 50 bucks is not bad, which is how much the initial Jeff Paul Program costs with its “10 Free Websites”. And honestly, the information in the packets that you receive is probably worth that much. But losing $3,000, $5,000, and even $10,000 to this program means you are probably getting scammed. This is how they do it.
So about a week after my debacle with the first “Director”, I get another call from the Jeff Paul guys. And I’ll be damned, they have a short memory, because once again, Jeremy, or whatever, is asking me a few “preliminary questions” to see if I’m qualified to talk to the director. They never stop trying to take your money. I told him I had already done this, and the director told me I was not the type of person they were looking for. Jeremy was really confused, a director has probably never said that to a potential mark. Cause they will take anyone’s money. So Jeremy insisted I got a bad director and started asking the preliminary questions like I hadn’t heard them before. I said, “Listen man, to save you some time, 10, 10, 10, $50,000 in my first 3 months, and I can spend up to $15,000.” I told him to tell the director to call me at 7.
This time, the director was nothing like the suave, businessman who had talked to me before. I heard a nervous kid on the end of the line, who was obviously in a room of telemarketers reading the same junk of a computer screen. I swear it was the kid’s first day. There were so many awkward silences, I actually started whistling during one, to which he responded, “Are you whistling??” I replied that I wasn’t. Shoot, it’s not my place to make your job any easier, I’m enjoying how awkward you are. He said the same junk about the original 50 dollar package not being the real system, just to filter out those who “really want to succeed”. And unless I upgrade I will never make the “real money”. With the real system you sell actual products apparently and are affiliated with fortune 500 companies like Yahoo and Amazon. So I said, “Show me… Show me what my site will look like with this system.” So he asked me if I was at a computer, and of course I was, and tells me to go to this site.
Hotbargainstores.com… Showing me this was a BIG MISTAKE. You know what this is? This is just a link farm using Amazon’s Associate Program. You can just sign up now and put these links anywhere and it’s FREE. The point is, you get a few cents to over a dollar per click on each link. You don’t need a $5,000 “success coach” to figure this out. Look, I’ll put some links below here:
Wow! I’ve created my own internet marketplace! This is what the Jeff Paul System teaches you to do, and it is not rocket science.
By this point I was pretty much done with this “director” so I decided to mess with him. I went along and acted like I was interested. He said for $5K, $8K, or $10K, I get a “marketing partner” to help guide me through the process of creating sites like Hotbargainstores.com. Those numbers were obviously made up after I said I had $15K to spend. I’m sure they would have scaled accordingly if I said I had $800 bucks. I think I’ll say that when they inevitably call me again. So I said to the director, “What? I gotta pull out a futon and feed this guy?” The director thought that was pretty funny, but no, you are paying somebody potentially 10 grand to speak with you on the phone. Probably the same high school dropout I was speaking with, under a different name. I noticed every time they call me it is the same voice with a different suspicious alias.
I waited until the last moment to say I wasn’t ready to make the commitment. I heard people around him groan, because evidently they don’t usually get this far, especially with a big fish like me and my $15K. So to this day, Jeff Paul and his cronies still call me acting like I just got the box yesterday, ask if they can get me to take their “preliminary interview” to see if I’m qualified to talk the director, who will ask for an exorbitant sum of money for a marketing partner who teaches me how to use Amazon’s affiliate program. Is this a scam? I dunno, I never laid down the cash to see what the next level is all about. But if Hotbargainstores.com is the end result of a $10,000 investment, you’re getting hosed.
