This swine flu scare has made fools of reasonable and intelligent people. It truly is unbelievable how we have reacted and fallen into the sinister Scammers network. Who are buying Swine Flu vaccines, survival kits, masks, vitamins and herbal products on line and providing their credit card information.
Just Don't Do It!
The internet is becoming a more dangerous place to shop every passing day. Just in our industry of printer supplies we see new websites opening and closing down within months. Are they collecting personal identities from consumers looking for those super-priced buys.
Here's the Business Plan.
A. Design a spicy looking site with "flash" features and buy those online website certificates (which mean little and protect you even less) and trust companies such as BizRate. You can join online BBB and list yourself on price comparison sites, such as "Shopping.com", etc. In less than a month your online company will look as though it has been around for years. Cost @ $5,000
B. List the products at prices well below market wholesale. I you lose $5.00 per item that's OK. Base the business on a life cycle of 90 to 120 days.
C. Ship the first round of products and advertise aggressively through Google and Yahoo!. Stop shipping to new clients within 30 days of closing and never send the 2nd order to repeat clients. (You'll make up a good portion of the losses incurred in the initial sales cycle even to the point where you may break even.
D. If done the proper way you should have at least 5000 – 7000 unsuspecting new identities to sell. You have their Name, Billing Address, Telephone Number Credit Card (maybe 2 cards) information.
E. Bingo! You have just completed a successful business venture. Your list of new identities will probably bring you $75 to $100 each. Do the math, it's a very profitable venture and you can move on. Maybe setting up the next business with one of those new identities you retained.
Friends, these are the same people out there selling your "Miracle Swine Rub". Please be careful and use common sense when shopping online.
