Would you let a convicted child rapist mind your toddler? How about asking a known con artist to take care of your accounting and banking? Or letting a drug addict mind your home for you while youre on holiday? Silly, right?
So why do you do business with anonymous people whom you have never met, refer your clients, who trust and respect you, to unknown business people and risk your reputation and savings by dealing with people you find in networking groups or on the Internet, without doing any due diligence? I know of a few confidence tricksters who are very prominent on the Internet and in business, who would steal the milk out of your tea and sell it back to you at a premium, in a heartbeat. In this politically correct world, where people are afraid of being sued or upsetting people, these swine get away with murder financial murder. There are seminar and course leaders out there who are known for their dishonesty, some of whom who are currently being sued by their victims, and yet people mindlessly flock to work with them. Are people really so desperate?
Just as the Internet is a powerful business tool and resource (DollarMakers controls over 50 websites), we should be careful to do our due diligence before leaping onto the next bandwagon as it flies over the cliff into oblivion, taking your hard-earned money with it. Visit any Franchise Show and watch the lambs being led to the slaughter. It brings tears to ones eyes, knowing the carnage that lies before some of those trusting sheep. Statistically, 87% of them will lose their money. If they were just going to be fleeced of their money, it would be bad enough, but the financial devastation has a ripple effect that destroys marriages, self-esteem, and quality of life. By the way, when you want to buy that business opportunity, the people whom you are given to contact as references are often the friends and family of the seller, and theyre well paid to lie to you. Did you notice that theyre seldom located in your neck of the woods? Naturally, not every business being offered at a franchise show is bad; some are good, but to find the good ones requires serious due diligence.
The wolves in sheeps clothing often disguise their greed and sociopathic motives in the garb of charitable enterprises, help for the underdog, or religious outreach. The people who benefit from their largess (your money) are usually very far away, so you have no way of checking up on their pious claims of philanthropy. The same goes for the offshore deals, investments and tax havens they sell. They provide a lot of detail, typical of the conmans strategy, and most of what they say can never be tested. They seldom provide home phone numbers or addresses and they are usually out of the office or traveling when you need to get hold of them. Especially AFTER they have taken receipt of your money. Their shadowy pasts are usually hidden behind a cloak of window dressing second to none. Its easy to do on the Internet or in settings where you dont have time to ask the right questions and the deal theyre offering has the elements of scarcity and urgency carefully built in. The biggest ally of a conman is the marks (victims) greed and desperation. .
