Medicine Hat Media, being the forerunner of bringing scam alerts to public attention online, especially with our coverage of StoresOnline in 2008 and 2009 have another one to alert you about. Saying that, I would also like to state that this could very well NOT be a scam, but who has ever heard of anything good coming out of these workshops? Well, besides that cheap digital camera that they give you that will break after a month. Fortunately for us, CHAT TV has helped us with this one and released their video to YouTube.

The gullibility of a certain older lady in the video is quite disturbing; however, this is the type of people that they thrive off of. I can’t speak to the content of the workshop or program as I did not attend the event; however, a simple Google search reveals many complaints against The Insider’s Edge, Dean Graziosi (he has a lot, but mostly his own trying to pad Google with his own sites/products), and their parent company, “Investor Education”. Here’s a couple of those:

I have heard some tell around town lately that some credit card scams have been going on around our southeast Alberta lately, and more specifically in Calgary during Grey Cup.

The scam involves someone approaching you in a situation much like when you are at a gas station filling up your vehicle. They claim they have not deposited their latest pay cheque yet and need some cash, so they will offer to pay for your gas with “their” credit card in exchange for your cash. The card will be accepted, but since it is not actually their card, someone else ends up being charged and the scammer makes off with the cash.

Just something for everyone to be on the lookout for.
