Steve and I started this blog in the spring of 2007 with the goal of making a dent in the scam action in the work-at-home market. I think we’ve been successful, even if it is just a dent. But we’ve saved some people some money and exposed some scum along the way.

After 291 posts and almost three years, it’s time for me to move on. I’ve Tried That will keep doing its good work in Steve’s capable hands, but I’m retiring to spend more time with my family.

Just kidding. I decided to launch a Rebate Processing program and you all can have first dibs on signing up.

No, that’s not true either. I am thinking about starting another blog, though, in a different niche. Some guy is offering free blog installations and I might take him up on that.

So anyway, this isn’t really “goodbye” because I’ll still read the posts and maybe hang around in the comments a bit. You just won’t have to hear from me on the front page anymore.

To all of our regular readers, thanks for your attention and for putting trust in us. I sincerely wish you the best in your online endeavors.

    Hey Joe,

    It’s been a fun and interesting 3 years. You couldn’t have picked a better time to help people avoid so many nefarious scams.

    Whenever I send people over to your site I always tell them “I trust these guys implicitly”.

    I’m sad to see you go but really happy that you’ll get to spend more time with your family.

    I am sorry to be late in posting but when I hear news I don’t like I tend to pretend it isn’t true or in the alternative digest it and then write a post.

    I am very grateful for you and Steve starting this site and I read it everyday.

    The irony is that last weekend I was on the web and came across A website where people post reviews of other websites pointing out the good and negative of each site. You might want to check as for my first review I listed
    and gave it rave reviews.
    I wish you the best with your new endeavors and spending more time with your family. Somehow though I imagine you will be stopping by with some input and to say hi more than you think!

    I have no doubt that Steve will continue to do a great job and you two can always be proud of what you set out to do and helped many along the way.

    Take Care

    Hey Joe
    I want to get in on the ground floor of your rebate sca…er…processing biz. I will have several million dollars to invest once I go to Costa Rica to pick up my Nigerian ATM card!
    You will be missed and I hope this site keeps going because in this economy there will be soooo many newbies out there looking for bread money.
    Best wishes and thank you so much for all you have done.

    I looked forward in reading your comments on scams. I’m going to miss you. You really helped me a lot. A lot of times I was ready to embark on a new adventure until you mention it was a scam. Thqnks for all your hellp.

    Hey Joe – I stumbled across your blog completely by accident – but I have to admit of all the ones I have signed up for and never really read (and then unsubscribed unceremoniously months later…lol) I always read yours. I really liked the spin you put on the scams to not only give them the attention they deserve – but also making it really FUNNY to read about them and the poor schlubs who unfortunately fell for them. Good luck with whatever you do next. :-)

    Hey Joe,

    You’ve done some great work over the years! But you definitely deserve more time with your family and trying something new. You’ve fought the good fight and probably have helped more people than you know. So I just want to say thank you for all that you did!

    It’s good to know that the site will still be in the good hands of Steve but you’ll be missed. Take care and good luck on your new ventures.
