I receive A LOT of emails.
They’re generally positive, but I do run into the occasional grumpy person who seems to be diverting a lot of misplaced anger at me. I wanted to share a few emails I’ve received recently. I’ll keep the more vulgar ones out. No one should ever have to read those.
Let’s start with…
how do i kno ur not a scammer?
I love this question.
To answer this, I’d want to say the opposite of whatever a scammer would say so I wouldn’t sound like a scammer myself, right? So, let’s see, what would a scammer say if you asked if he or she was a scammer? They’d probably say something like, “No, I’m not a scammer.” So, I’d want to say the opposite of that… “Yes, I’m a scammer?”
Well that didn’t quite work out as planned.
There’s no real way to answer this question. I usually just tell the reader to look at our Archives Page. There are nearly 1,000 posts in there written over the span of five years. Almost all of them are warnings to stay away from a certain program or product.
A lot of these articles rank really high in search engine results. I could very easily change the review to a positive one, slap in an affiliate link, and make a ton of money, but that’s not what this site is about. This is probably the best proof I have to offer that I am, in fact, not a scammer.
You think your so smart but I have you all figured out.
Please share. I haven’t quite figured myself out yet and would love to know the results of your findings.
OMG. I TRUSTED you. And now you want me to pay to see the work at home jobs. I should have known this was all a scam just to get all my money.
The guide in question is my 121 Hidden Online Jobs report and it costs $7. If that’s ALL your money, I think you may have some more pressing issues.
A few people got angry at me when I released this guide. I didn’t really understand the hate. The guide lists 121 different work at home companies that are hiring. It took me well over 100 hours to research and create. I offer free life-time updates. I give away a free copy of my 45-page Complete Guide to Telecommuting. I regularly give away random amounts of money to customers. It only costs $7.00.
Yes I charge money for it, but that money goes toward operating costs for I’ve Tried That. Plus, IT’S ONLY $7. You’d easily spend that money on a bucket of hot wings. I think this is a much better value for your money and you’re not at risk of dripping hot sauce on your shirt. That’s money saved man.
They’re not all bad however. Take this for example…
I need to say thank you. I was just hired as a customer service agent for one of the companies listed in your guide. I had almost lost all hope that it was possible to find a real work at home job and then I found I’ve Tried That. I’ll be starting next Monday and I will be working full time from home! Best wishes and I can’t wait to tell all my friends about your site!
Yes, I’m gloating.
But I just LOVE emails like these. They instantly brighten my day and I get insanely productive.
If I’ve tried That has helped you in any way, please do share. These types of stories help me keep the site going better than any $7 eBook ever could. I love to hear that people find value in my work and that my site has been able to improve your life.
Plus, it’s much better to hear that I don’t suck.
(I didn’t know how to end this post.)
