Since I'm bored and it's a guilty pleasure of mine reading this stuff, I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread on some obvious scams you come across, so I can continue my guilty pleasure of reading them.
They pop up a lot, especially on Twitter and FB feeds and some of the content is just pure entertainment.
If you're a vendor, please don't just post your competitors on here, this is for the ones that are so obvious it's comical.
Yeah, I have to admit I enjoy reading these threads too. haha
There was a company back in the 2000's called Micro Corporation, they were selling a product named Blue Chip Trader. Unfortunatly a relative of mine purchased their "system" and also gave them my details as they knew I traded shares.
The product was coded in MS Access (TRUE!!!) pretty much only used RSI EOD scan, and they were asking $20k for it. Of cause if you purchase right then on the phone it would only be $10k.
Well these guys were relentless, 3-4 calls a week for months, it didn't matter how many times I told them to f' off.
I think the best part was a year later they called me about a new investment platform they created that gives you guaranteed income from horse racing!!!!!!
