You’ve probably seen the commercials on TV. Cashing in on the unwary during a down economy is making the owner’s of this scam a LOT of money. Here is just how their scam works.
Their commercial paint a picture of fear in order to capitalize on the recent changes in the economy. They are scaring people into thinking that they will soon be losing their jobs, their homes and their financial stability will be gone forever. Viewers are taken in and unwittingly send in priceless jewelry in exchange for cash. Cash is king right….yeah.
This sounds pretty normal so far, but here is the kicker. The gold that you send in is severely undervalued. Right now gold is at an all time high, over $1200/ounce. A solid gold necklace could easily weigh in over 15 grams, or half an ounce. That’s about $600 in gold. Cash 4 Gold would only offer $24.99. That is insance! When customer complain profusely are offered up to a whopping $75.
Unsatisfied with that amount for the necklace you bought for several hundred dollars? Tough shit, because Cash 4 Gold will often “lose” customers shipments, recompensing them comparatively paltry amounts, and getting your gold sent back is a predictably futile miasma of customer service representatives who are literally paid to not do what you want.
Bottom Line….stay away, the convenience factor is great, However your local pawn shop should offer in the $10 to $15 per gram range. Three to four times what Cash 4 Gold will offer
In America, you can always bank on selling sex. A lesser known truth is that you will never go broke selling to laziness and sheer stupidity. Perhaps no product is better at this than the infamous Ab-Belts. This product touts using electrical charges to stimulate/contract the abdominal muscles. The belts claim to give you 6-pack abs while you inhale Big Macs and Cheez-Its. As much as we would all like this to be true, there has never been, and never will be, a trick to losing weight besides diet, exercise, and large doses of methamphetamines.
Despite being repeatedly sued and slapped on the wrist by the FTC, the makers of these devices continue to adamantly insist that their product will give you the abs of your dreams, while quietly explaining that they actually will not in some hard-to-find fine print. In a startling and incredibly rare fit of sanity, Americans have largely rejected these products, leading them to expand into markets such as China, where consumer protection often amounts to little more than a prayer and some origami cranes.
Really people if you want to lose that tire around your mid section get out and exercise. Shocking yourself repeatedly is just not gonna do it.
Mobile computing is a form of human–computer interaction by which a computer is expected to be transported during normal usage.
Mobile laptop and notebook computers can use one of two types of wireless access services when away from the home or office. The most commonly used and least expensive is WiFi®. WiFi uses radio waves to broadcast an Internet signal from a wireless router to the immediate surrounding area. If the wireless network is not encrypted, anyone can jump on. WiFi is commonly used in public places to create “hotspots.”
Another service associated with mobile computing is cloud computing, or the ability to use website services from mobile computers. Cloud computing provides access to a network-like environment with various applications and virtually unlimited resources so that field representatives, for instance, can utilize website resources rather than being supplied with weighty, expensive machines packed with company software and data. Mobile computing also provides access to a company’s virtual private network (VPN) by tunneling through the Internet. It’s nearly impossible to estimate the value of increased business productivity afforded by mobile computing.
Cellular broadband is also used for providing Internet access to cell phones and PDAs. Access is usually considered a premium service that either increases the monthly cost of the plan associated with the device, or incurs extra fees when used. In some cases, restricted Internet access is allowed for free when connecting to the carrier’s website to manage an account, for example, or to purchase products from the carrier such as custom ringers or wallpaper.
