    Why don't you make enough money running your major online electronics store? Seems to me if you fail selling electronics you're going to fail selling insurance.

    I fuckin' love this Fred. It never stops giving. It's like the Airing of the Grievances and the Feats of Strength all rolled up into one.

    I once got invited to a MLM scam with a story very similar to the one Douglas shared. Walked away immediately, but my roommate at the time decided to buy in. I think he pre-purchased around $300 worth of product to flip and only managed to sell a small fraction of it to friends and family. By no means a lot of money, but I can tell you being a broke kid fresh out of college trying to get his bills paid he wasn't happy with the choices he made.

    Job listings on sites like Monster and CL are full of scams that pray on the young and inexperienced. My first post college interview was supposed to be for a "marketing opportunity." The whole thing stunk from the moment I got the phone call inviting me in, but at the time I decided I didn't have anything to lose by going in. When I arrived I signed in with a lady at the front desk and was told I'd be taken to my interview shortly. Two gentlemen came to great me and said they were there to drive me to my interview close by. At this point I honestly should have walked, but I went ahead and got in the car. Next thing I know they are driving around town stopping at various businesses to sell office supplies. They said they felt it was best to show people first hand what they do before explaining it in the interview process. I of course was in an unfamiliar part of town with no cell phone on me...

    Luckily they took me back when I realized what was happening and requested it. I can't imagine how creeped out and vulnerable a young woman might have felt in the same situation.

    I remember interviewing at a life insurance/investment broker place - American Family or whatever. It was awful. You know a job is bad if they don't ask you a single question and still offer you the job.

    I once had an interview at one of those "We'll solve your problems with the IRS!" places. I put it into my cell phone wrong and realized the next day that I missed the interview. Being really embarrassed, I went by the place to apologize. They offered me a job on the spot. Nothing desperate about that, right?

    I filled out an application for Arby's right at the counter, before I finished my curly fries they had offered me a job.

    I call bullshit on that Harvery. No way are you qualified for Arby's. Taco Bell maybe, but not Arby's.

    I went for an interview after someone called me after seeing my resume online. The guy called it an interview but it was about them not me. They however showed the dollar support they give in bonuses while you setup your office and start generating leads and return customers. He also gave me option take over an existing office because the guy's retiring. They said there's not money I ever have to pay to farmers as down payments. Someone mentioned loan that i have to pay back... they didnt say it was a loan. I have a follow up meeting on coming Monday so I will go and ask all these concerns that i learned here. Thanks
