    I was reading some posts on BHW the other day and someone posted a list of "desperate buyer" niches, with things like gamblers in debt, women who think their husband is cheating, etc. (some good ideas in there!)

    But it got me thinking, what is the most unethical niche you can think of? What niche would you NOT touch because it would destroy your ability to look at yourself in the mirror?

    - How to cure childhood cancer

    - How to get out of an abusive relationship

    - Last-minute funeral planning eBooks

    - How to cure Alzheimers

    Credit repair. If you are providing legit tips, that is one thing. But most of the credit repair agencies will hurt your score and costs you more money than you can pay.

    Pay Day Loans: I was watching TV the other day and saw a company promoting a $5000 loan with a 116% interest. That is correct... 116% Who needs money that bad? Their $1000 loan had a $500 fee plus 240%.

    Crazy...

    How to cure cancer.

    That's REALLY one fuck up unethical niche.

    Seriously, exploiting a person's desperate times is really fuck up.
    I'm okay with weight loss products... but when someone is really-really desperate to find a way out (cancer, debts, .etc), it's way too unethical to take advantage of.

    Anything that purposely sets out to trick the buyer, such as re-bills. I couldn't live with myself knowing I was misleading and screwing with people's lives.

    It is crazy. But you never know what people will do until they're put into a desperate situation.

    The Pro Ana niche is pretty unethical. I thought about making a website for that but, after looking at all those Annas... I got discusted.

    (Pro ana == pro anorexia)

    5,000 loan with 84 payments of 486.58 each, equals 40,872.72 pay back!!!
    That is a profit of 35,872.72.

    You can be ethical. All you are doing is finding a need and filling it. You should, however, know what you are talking about and offer helpful information. A good example would be: Autism

    Helpful methods for teaching a student with autism
    Proper diet and environment for autism
    Tips for parents of autistic children
    I could go on all day long.

    I could do this and make a bit of money while helping people at the same time.

    You can too. Just look around you and see what people need, then go do your research.

    I don't think I would touch anything in the "cure cancer" niche or similar.

    I think child porn, abuse and dead celebrity niches are the worst.

    And, from what I learned about it, its actually popular. **shivers**
