Magic Herp Breeding Program

I was thumbing through the last reptiles magazine (with the leaf-tail on the cover) and came to an advertisement for a "free" reptile report. It is from a guy named Eric Nelson. I couldn't find any info about him on the web. Here are some quotes:

"It's so simple it's embarrasing," he says ... And he INSISTS he can quickly teach his simple secrets to YOU ... unlocling the vault to huge money-making rare lizard sales opportunities to hungry buyers all over the world!"

"How to breed easier and faster with 300% better results... Guaranteed!"

"How to triple the money you make in just two seasons!"

"How to cut care costs by 50% right now and 75% in three months or less!"

"Double your sales at your next expo Guaranteed!"


So, I am skeptical as you may have noticed. Have any of you ever heard of this guy or his "program?" His website is a dead link and I called the number (to see how much he was going to charge for his "free" report) and he just said some of the things I read in the article and asks you to send in your name, address, fax, and email so he can get back to you. Just curious what you guys think.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Proceed with caution.

I saw that ad in the magazine.
It's a boilerprint template I've seen applied to lots of things. How to make money on foreclosures, erection pills, baldness cures, etc. etc.

Basically it's like when the Amway rep spends an evening psyching everyone up with buzzwords like "networking!" and "achieving your portential!" but they don't actually give you a business plan or any real useful info.

It's a legalized pyramid scheme.

Avoid it like the plague.

I was disgusted to see that Reptiles would even print such an obvious scam. The link to the site doesn't work and I'm not about to dial the #. I am going to be sending my customary scathing email to the ad staff of the magazine though.

Hahahaha, how to turn your spare times reptile reproduction into a reproductive machine, enslave your reptiles to over producing babies and cut down your costs by restraning their tank size to cut down heat and to feed them less, just the necessary for their survival...

I can tell you all how to do this too....for only 9.95...but what the heck. I'll let you in......buy two yearling Mojave Ball Pythons and nothing else...breed them. All the above is true. LMAO
