    Newbie but I have a question

    Howdie everyone! Just wanted to know if anyone has ever heard of Mark Hodges. He has a web site called "Don't Get Scammed". I hit this site when I Googled "scams". Interesting enough, he claims that he checks out alot of the online/get rich quick businesses. Then he "recommends" a few that he claims to be "legit" and "profitable". Now, personally I prefer the opinions of many to just one person. Here's a sample of one of his emails I received from him.

    Hi Norma,

    Firstly, welcome to Dont-Get-Scammed.com.

    What can you expect from me? Well, I've been making
    my living online for years and have come to a few
    conclusions. Firstly, 95% of the programs available
    online are absolute rip offs and you will make NO money
    whatsoever, trust me I've tried most of them. Secondly,
    there are many legit ways to make money online, but
    finding a program that will actually show you the ropes
    is very difficult.

    So, I've put together a small list of the 3 programs I've
    found to be your best bet at making any real money online
    without having to do anything questionable (like porn or spam).

    Your personal link to this list can be found at:

    ==> http://www.dont-get-scammed.com/thefew.htm

    I suggest you take a serious look at these programs and
    decide which best suits your wants and needs, then get
    to work. Many people will tell you that you've missed
    out on the hay-days of the internet when money flowed
    freely to anyone who worked at it. That is totally bogus.
    There are millions of dollars, yes Millions, being spent
    online everyday and all you have to do is find one viable
    avenue, get started, and then get good at it to cash in on
    your piece of the pie.

    That link again:

    ==> http://www.dont-get-scammed.com/thefew.htm

    So, really what I am trying to do is help as many people
    as possible avoid the mistakes and pitfalls that I stumbled
    on during my quest for success. The road can be very rocky
    of you don't follow the signs, trust me on that one.

    Cheers,

    Mark Hodges

    P.S. I almost forgot, if you have a friend or colleague who
    you feel could benefit from any of this information feel
    free to pass it on to them.

    Any comments? I wonder if the reason he "recommends" these particular programs is because they are his own and he's the only one making money. :confused:

    Re: Newbie but I have a question

    Me and Mark Hodges used to play Tennis together every other Tuesday until one day i caught him with his leg up taking a pee pee break on my favorite racket. Needless to say, me and Mark aren't friends anymore and no you shouldn't trust him either.

    Hi, Norma
    It appears your fears and gut instinct about Mark Hodges is correct. I am as we speak doing a thorough background check on this guy. He is apparently using the "I am a good guy. I am anti-scam" but do I have a great deal.

    I will have more info next week.

    It's a very cringe-worthy speil that was given as an example in the Rich Jerk.

    He hasn't contacted a load of Administrators and got acces to their programs, that's just an elaborate lie. With this website, he has just copied a very poorly written example from an eBook and chosen his own 3 schemes to promote.

    This type of site is only for the gullible, ignore it.

    Yep, he's hyping a Certified Media Placement Specialist program that runs out of a UPS store in Tempe Arizona. He just released a voice mail that says he visited the Company (a box in a UPS Store) and was impressed with all the people around! He said there were 56 employees working in the letter box, must have be rather crowded.

    There's no such thing as a CMPs (sic), he's reallys selling a ChuMPs program

    THe UPS Store that they give as a genuine address is in Tempe, the phone, supposedly in the same "office" is in Phoenix. Who are Mark Hodges and Mary Gertsen? Probably a guy and his girl friend, does it really matter since the whole deal is scam?

    The deals been described by victim of the scam, $300 gets you the cookie cutter website, $500 a popup and voice, and two grand "personal coaching."
