A couple of weeks ago, I received this in the mail:
If you can’t see that, it says “Lauren, WOULD LOVE TO TALK WITH YOU ABOUT A PART-TIME MANAGEMENT POSITION WITH MY COMPANY.”
Let’s go through the warnings exhibited here.
1. It was written in all caps. (who does that?)
2. It was an unsolicited postcard from someone in Nashville to my address that is obviously in Denver about a “job.”
3. It’s signed “M.C. Foster” – so I can’t look him up online
4. There is no company name…scam perhaps??
Overall, there is nothing looking positive about this…except perhaps a future blog post. I called him (I have lots of time on my hands). Here are some of the highlights of this amazing opportunity:
-We help save everyone money.
-His son quit his job and moved to TN to help him with this business.
-You are paid daily, can get a bonus weekly.
-There is a conference in Plano, TX in June. 2000-3000 people. Most are women, some making 6-7 figures. (hmm…)
-You can have your own website…up to 8 websites!! (all my dreams are coming true)
-He and his son can help me with 3 way calls if I need help. (awesome.)
So, you may be wondering, what is this company about? At this point in the call, I still had no idea. He labored through giving me a web address to look up his son’s website, and then he told me about an exciting phone call where they would tell me everything they do in 15 minutes. Oh boy. I looked up the website, and it looks like you sell some kind of discount plan to people…and apparently try to get others hooked into selling because you get a cut of their revenue. This was obvious because he said he bought a list that had my name on it. Great.
Needless to say, I am still unemployed.
