Avoid the scams, find out which Business Opportunities actually work

Issue 11 of Iain Maitland’s Passive Income Newsletter arrived yesterday and, as usual, there were a couple of sales letters in the envelope with it.

First of all there was the small advert for the Driver’s Handbook:

Drivers – Here’s the Insider Information the Police Don’t Want You to Have!”

Streetwise Publications have recently been pushing this in the National Press with huge, full page advertisements which I doubt are very cheap.

Second was an 8 page sales letter from Janine Stafford about self defence – selling a £97 DVD showing you how you can defend yourself from violent attack.

However, the third sales letter was my favourite because it’s a new product which is called

How To Make £1,000 A Day Before Breakfast”

The letter is written by an ex-factory worker called Terry Wilson. I’ve never heard of him before but his story is quite interesting.

The sales letter explains that Terry was working one day, as usual, in his job at a car parts factory where he had worked for 23 years. His boss came by and made a flippant remark to him and he walked out.

Just like that, he’d had enough.

Anyway, the story goes that his wife is very, very mad at him and tells him to go and pick up his son from school the next day where he is helping with a car-boot sale.

When Terry gets there he finds a book which he buys for 25p.

This book reveals a remarkable “lost system” for creating cash. Terry’s research on Google finds that the book was used by someone in the 20s, a couple of people in the 30s, one person in the 40s and the book’s previous owner in the 50s and 60s.

All of them became fabulously rich from following the books teachings:

How Two Words Scrawled in a Jumble-Sale Book Took Me From
Brush-Wielding Joke to Complete Financial Freedom in Just 180 Days!”

The remainder of the sales letter describes how Terry made £5,000 in his first month from the technique without any selling, with no staff or premises and without any start-up capital.

This system is apparently so good that Terry admits he would be “suicidal” if he made as little as £5,000 in a month nowadays.

As with all Streetwise’s products, there’s a lengthy guarantee period for this one – 90 Days. If I don’t think it’s worth at least 100 times the £39.95 I paid, I can return it for a full unconditional, no-questions-asked refund.

So, I have fallen for the sales letter. To tell you the truth I am intrigued about what it could be.

I’m guessing it’s some kind of “middle-man” opportunity where you use someone else’s money and goods or where you match up people with needs with people with products; something of that variety.

We’ll see.

Stay tuned.
