Update – Saturday, May 9, 2009.
The only place to get deals AND AVOID THE SCAM on Jeff Paul’s products is on eBay. You will find people who paid full price for the items and are now selling the complete set of materials for $4.79 -$17.99. Click here to see the Jeff Paul eBay items. (This is my site – it’s safe and scam-free.)
Jeff Paul’s infomercial titled, “Shortcuts to Internet Millions”, was on CNBC this morning. If I act now, this service priced at just $39.95 will earn me up to $1,000,000. No computer knowledge required.
This reminds me of a secretary I used to work with who purchased 6 websites through a similar system for $2000. No lie, it’s true.
OK, so I used my “computer knowledge” to google Jeff Paul. “Scam” is a targeted Google adword for the search on Jeff Paul. This means that people searching for Jeff Paul in google are highly likely to click on the keyword “Scam”. The advertisers are trying to capitalize on Jeff Paul’s name by inferring that he is a scam but their service is not. This is an ugly business all around.
I know some internet millionaires. They spend years and years creating a valuable service and until it finally pays off. It’s just like any other business or endeavour. No shortcuts to be found.
However, if you would like to get Jeff Paul books and software, then buy it on eBay. You can find titles such as, “How To Make Money in your Underwear”, “Start a Mail Order Cash Flow Business Manual”, and “How to Make a Surgeon’s Income” for less than $20.
You can also see other people’s experiences with Jeff Paul products at the Rip-Off Report.
While we’re on the subject of dipping into people’s savings, iSoldIt founder, Elise Wetzel, was highlighted in Kellogg’s 2005 magazine as an entrepreneurial success. We both went to Kellogg Graduate School of Business and I was very jealous that her business had a huge presence at the 2005 eBay Live and they were spending a ton of cash. I was watching every penny I spent.
Being an eBay market researcher, I researched the sales for their franchise stores and I saw monthly sales of $3K in the Southern states and up to $45K in California. I asked the people at the iSoldIt booth about the low sales and they did not have an answer – but their hype continued until 2006. They told their franchisees that they would set them up in a successful business overnight. Hah! The franchisee’s money instead went to iSoldIt management salaries.

Have a nice weekend and keep your hard-earned money safe!
