Video Professor



I'm sure just about everyne has seen this guy on tv, begging you to let him send you a tutorial for your computer. He claims that he will give it away, for free, and all you have to do is pay about $6 for shipping and "administration costs". What he isn't telling you, is that he will keep sending you more of these training cd's and you will be charged roughly 60 bucks a pop for them. So, if you really want to throw your money away, send your check to me.

i thanks a bunch for visiting my blog! it's not a bad idea going around to random people's blogs writing comments, complimenting them telling them to check out your blog, knowing very well that no one would be so mean not to check out your blog. i might start doing that myself. anywhoo, feel free to visit anytime.

Brad...I learned long ago whenever I see or hear the word "free" to raise an eyebrow and investigate further because there's always always always a catch.
Thanks ... love the tips!

$6 pays for his cd, packaging, staff, and a good $4 profit.
He's definately getting rich off the admin fee. But props to him for getting rich off the stupid. Everyone does it, if only i was able to pull it off...:)

Its that stupid woman in the commercial who says, "I never had so much fun learning something about the computer" who annoys the ever-living fuck out of me. Is it trying to say that this is a product for ignorant fools who have no friends to teach them this shit? Because I briefly entertained the idea of trying the HTML one before she came on.

Actually, when you purchase the CD, you click a button before you can complete your order that gives VP permission to put you on a continuity program. It really is on the buyer to realize that if this were actual "free" offers with no potential to make a profit, the Video Professor would be starving. I hope you learned your lesson to actually read what you are agreeing to.
