I really hate it when scammers use the logos of major networks to try and pass off legitimacy. The only thing I hate more is when people write to us asking us, “why would these news companies back this program if you’re saying it’s a scam? I trust CNN more than I trust you so I’m going to send my $2500 to Make-Billions-Online-Doing-Nothing.com.”
If a website was featured and backed by a major news organization, you could be damn sure they are going to be linking to the news article or video as proof. It would be great publicity and a surefire way to bring legitimacy and authority to their name. Any website can put up a picture of a CNN logo, but not any website can actually be featured at CNN. Odds are, if you come across a website claiming to be featured somewhere and they don’t link you to said feature, they’re lying to you.
Why You Can’t Believe Everything You See Online.
Perhaps you’ve seen I’ve Tried That’s newest spokesperson. He’s an old friend that goes by the name of President Obama and has been on a national campaign to bring awareness to our website.
No, you haven’t heard of him? Well then maybe you’ve been to the new I’ve Tried That arena in the south. It’s being hailed as the 9th wonder of the world (FYI the fact that we’ve been operating this long and still haven’t been sued is the 8th).
Not a sports fan eh. Well then surely you’ve had to have heard about I’ve Tried That’s space program. We’re sending Joe to Mars in search of life in April 2010.
And thus concludes my segment of why you can’t trust everything you read online.
