One time I went to go see that show called Shen Yun and y'know how they gloat about how the performance spans "5000 years of Chinese history" yada, yada, yada.. well really the whole thing was just one big piece of propaganda... there was an underlying theme all throughout... like "atheism is a lie" and they had a couple skits there dedicated to the modern-day-China-man and how he's not allowed to practice the Falun Dafa and the Chinese people will be prosecuted if they practice this faith. They also explained how they're not allowed to do (in China) a lot of these performances that they were doing and that only the world stage allows them to do these kinds of performances. I was really peeved when I left the auditorium because I thought that I was coming to experience what was advertised except the only thing i really experienced was someone's blatant attempt at brainwashing.

Also, I have won a few cruises but I never took them up on the offer

Do MMO games count? You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy than that of Runescape 8 or so years ago.


It really is a Necklace of Power, I swear!

I have scammed/been scammed in both Runescape and Diablo 2. Emerald socketed cap ≠ shako.

Never been scammed in real life, unless you count a carny screwing me out of $20 when I was 11.

Luckily no random numbers call my cell, so I don't have to deal with that, but the amount of scam calls I get on my home phone is astronomical, luckily Caller ID there so if I don't recognize the number good luck getting me to pick up. Recently it has been Branson, MO saying we apparently have won some trip down there, they call probably 3-5 times a day. Worst part is when they call after like 8pm it's like seriously just get a life.

That makes me think back to Griftah from WoW with his "Amazing Amulets" like Soap on a Rope.

Aren't MLM companies just scams?

Seriously, Vemma, Empower Network..

Basically anything were you recruit others?

EVERYONE had an instance were they were looking at a business opportunity and it said.

"Just tell your friends and family to sign up and EARN! Live your dreams!"

Scam.

I don't do Multi level marketing for most people fall for it at one point or another.

It doesn't seem right applying for a job and they ask you, "you have to pay the application and the processing fee."
Bitch, please. I'm suppose to get money out of you [by working for you], not you getting money out of my pocket.

I hope that I don't get into a diabolical pyramid scheme in the future. I see some coworkers selling Avon products and I don't think they are meeting their monthly quota.

Yes, on ebay - it was sort of my fault for not realizing the listing was against the rules in the first place, and I ended up losing enough money to wince over.
