If you ever have a friend or co-worker invite you to lunch because they want to talk to you about "a new exciting project that they are working on that they want to tell you about" or "that you might be interested in", just run. Run. Fast.
Jeez. You would think I would see the signs. But no, this happened again last night.
Another MLM (multi-level marketing) pitch.
I got a free dinner, yes. But I also got an hour-and-a-half long pitch about becoming a representive for a company that would 'build my financial independence'. *
Of course it all sounds good. They learn scripts for these sorts of things.
Then I got home an did the obligatory Internet search for the company name + 'scam'. Oh, lookey there, 8 links! All from previous "representatives". And all scathing.
At least I got a free dinner.
* I won't mention the company here, because I really don't want to attract THAT sort of linky love. No thanks.
