Well put, preying on people's dreams. Reminds me of all the newsletters that promise you 1000% returns on penny stocks...human weaknesses will always be exploited for profit.

Thanks for the honest post. There are so many people out there who try and sell and get rich quick scheme and take advantage of others. There really is knowledge to be learned no matter what endeavor we are taking on. It is easy for people to neglect this and them simply give up. Thanks!
