    Has anyone ever heard of this? It's advertised by eBay users all the time, but I'm not sure of its reliability.


    He seems reliable enough, but I dunno about his earnings, they sound a bit exaggerated?

    Er, that is a chain marketing scheme. It doesn't work. If you don't know why pyramid schemes do not work then I worry for your sanity.

    If you send me £5 i'll send you a booklet explaining why they don't work .

    They don't work because eventually you run out of people to recruit. And then the last layer of people to join is stuffed.

    Pyramid schemes are brilliant.

    As long as you're at the top, of course.

    The idea is great though and purely legal (I think)

    You pay me £5 and I will send you an instruction book saying how to make £5

    Booklet says:

    You get people to pay you have £5 for example via ebay and then send them a copy of this booklet

    In theory they could go on for ever, you can make money from them but its dodgy and not exactly moral. I would avoid it.
