Marketing Network Scams Capitalize On Your Personality Type - Articles Surfing

Are you skeptical by nature? Do you believe anything someone will tell you - as long as they are willing to put it in writing? Do you read your junk mail before tossing it out? No matter how you answer any of these questions, you are fair game for one or more marketing network scams currently in circulation on the Internet or via ads through magazines. As a matter of fact, marketing network scams capitalize on your personality type to such an extent that there is not one kind of personality that is safe from being taken in by a smooth talker or good looking opportunity. Even being poor and not having any money to spend on a business opportunity will not protect you, since scam artists have found ways to talk the unsuspecting out of money they did not even have to spend!

Interestingly, if you have an analytical mind, you are at the greatest risk of being taken in! While this may appear to be an oxymoron, the facts show that those who analyze information are also those who are compelled by their very nature to do just that - analyze information that is given to them. Thus, a savvy scam artist will present marketing network scams that contain a lot of detailed information and are ready to answer all questions. By appearing to be more knowledgeable than the analytical person who is going over every possible angle of the presentation, they are gaining the consumer's trust and eventually wring a sale for an inferior product from them or in the alternative get a buy-in for a questionable business opportunity. Knowing full well that an analytical person cannot be pushed, the scam artist will pretend to have integrity and wait rather than pitch, follow up rather than pressure - and this is how the consumer gets hooked.

Sometimes mistaken for being analytical is the conflict avoider. This individual will gladly read anything given to them because they do not want to say no. They will chat with the scam artist because they do not want to seem rude. This is where the weakness comes in: marketing network scams rely on such a person's inability to say an outright now and thus the scam artist will present an opportunity that is so good that the conflict avoider will be able to rationalize saying yes. If you find yourself in such a position, your only way out is to refuse any and all contact with a scam artist and instead ask anyone calling you to send things in writing.

Perhaps the most unlikely victim - in their own eyes - yet one of the most frequently scammed is the business minded powerhouses. You will recognize them by their intelligence, knowledge of the market and its foibles, conversant on a number of subjects, and able to spot a fake a mile away. Yet in their very security and self-confidence lies their greatest weakness: the unwillingness to recognize that they can be taken by marketing network scams quickly and easily! As a matter of fact, scam artists find that these individuals are the easiest to con since they only require the scam artist to be a better talker, analyst of facts, and purveyor of reasons why the opportunity is great than the individual being scammed being able to do the opposite. Almost like a chess match, the one with the most arguments left on the board wins.

The bottom line: When you are reading an email or an Internet website thinking about or looking for a business, make certain you read everything and understand before you commit to anything.
