    Recently a site called The Rich 16 Year Old launched and may have been one of the most ridiculous sites many of us have seen in recent times. What?s scary is apparently the product seems to be selling well despite NUMEROUS red-flags that have been caught on the sales page.

    I?ve done a series of videos, screenshots and explanations that show in detail MANY HUGE RED-FLAGS with Carol Nguyen?s Rich16YearOld.com website. For the sake of simplicity I?m referring to her as ?Carol Nguyen? although that may or may not be her real name. Also, keep in mind that she is almost certainly NOT the person behind this website ? as you will see in the videos that follow.

    ROFL, yeah, I think everyone knew it was fake, but that guy went pretty in-depth with his analysis!

    Yeah I think we all knew it was bullshit, I'm sure most of the people who bought it knew it was bullshit, but it was so fucking retarded it was almost intriguing so I can see why it sold some.

    Wow, this was like a 60 Minutes Expose! The site was hysterical and I have to wonder how much money they actually pulled in? They probably got some eyeballs that for sure!

    Anyone ever hear of P. T. Barnum??

    (My favorite story is that he charged people in his circus $.25 admission to follow a series of arrow signs that said "This way to the egress". They thought it was a bird. It was the exit.)

    Lordy it maybe crap but it is crap that sells, I say good luck to him or her or it!
    I'm just pissed as I'm probably not making as much money selling my shit.
    Why am I even wasting my time thinking about it in the first place, I have 101
    more important things to do, like making some ad campaigns or builing some
    quality links? Crud so little time!!!!

    Lol i'm just surprised it made so much money. But whatever, kudos to him/her for actually making some good money off of it.
