    It blew me away would report it but SP mods are a waste of space when it comes to scammers

    But it gets worse when you type in Mike Hersh inc to google you get this page going on about child abuse http://www.theawarenesscenter.org/hersh_michael.html still not enough to get it pulled though

    Ok look carefully at what she is saying, she is probably not lying. Differentiating between revenue and profit is key here.

    The monthly revenue might well be $800 (revenue in this case is the amount they are getting in through sales) but this doesn't take into account the Adwords costs.

    On such a niche the Adwords costs alone could be huge, they may very well be spending 1K a month on advertising leaving them a net loss of $200.

    She is telling no lies but she is covering the truth.

    Fact: People Lie On The Internet
    Fact: People Are Stupid And Will Say Anything For Money
    Fact: People Will Combine Both Of The Above When It Comes To IM And The Marketplace
    Opinion: The Pictures/Set Up Of That Pitch Page Is Fucking Terrible
