After reading another post about that new "Secret" to a fulfilling life I was thinking about all of those "idea pushers" out there getting rich on people's foolish notions that someone would be willing to give you a huge secret for a small fee. Sometimes the fee isn't even that small.
You know.... late night tv...... Buy real estate with little, or no money down. They are talking about real estate tax sales. The kind of property actually being sold at tax sales is nothing anybody wants.....Usually worthless vacant lots and usually cannot even be built on. Real estate tax buyers charge interest and that is where the money is. They don't want houses, they want you to borrow money to pay them back with a high interest, and rarely ever end up with any real estate. It takes several years of paying the taxes on a property and a court transfer of the property to actually get anything.
Or any of the hundreds of other scams selling ideas for wealth or happiness.
Is there really enough gullible people out there to support these parasites ?
Has anybody ever paid for one of these things ? C'mon fess up.....
Got any favorites ?
Makes me wonder why the person selling such a great secret isn't keeping it for them self.
I know I would !
You may as well just give all your money to the TVangelist Reverend Tipton and place your hands on the tv for a healing. At least you'll never really know if it worked or not so you can't be disappointed when you find out what they really sold you.
A fool and his money are soon parted......
