    That's real funny... Every few years someone starts a telemarketing campaign on a few topics; grants, credit cards, travel, medical are some of the top ones. They make good money for a short time (I know someone personally who made over 2 mil in 6 months). I worked for one of these places for minute or two. I was pretty good too (closed on average 8-10 deals per day). I thought this game was all but dead, with processing payments almost impossible. But I see the old WU still good and holding.

    What's even more interesting is the grants angle. I know the play, but my curiosity overcame me today as on almost every social network and video guide site I went to had an ad with this canadian government check. I thought wow, blatant geo-targetting, I gotta start using proxies more often, then I clicked.

    A semi usual landing page, a link to the usual sales page (artfully executed I must say), $1.95 later, I'm reading information I could have attained by googling, "Granting agencies toronto".

    Wow. Fucking curiosity. And i thought i was smarter than your average cattle... they don't stand a chance.
