Its Free and It Can Help Your Business - whatever!!!

Snake oil salesmen send me endless emails promising to double my profits with 21 secrets of success to be shared only with people attending blah blah.

All the usual sales tricks:
- only an odd (or prime) number of seats left
- full price should be odd (or prime) number of pounds
- effusive testimonials from unheard of people (eg TJ, from Preston)

- effusive testimonials from extremely famous (and unlikely) person

Does anyone believe this? And who attends? And what do they expect?

As my Grandmother used to say...
"If it is too good to be true then it probably is..."
