    Hi everyone,

    I just found a site with some scary information on why we shouldn't use paydotcom shit.

    QUOTE:
    ----------
    My wariness about using PDC is that mike filasmie, who is technically the competition of many of us, would become our provider of services...

    enabling him to:

    know what product sell best
    how many we sell
    the NAMES and EMAILS of all customers..
    -----------

    This makes me angry, so even if you have a new PROFITABLE niche product Mr. Filsaime the owner of paydotcom will know EXACTLY what niche and product. And by simply using petnames he will outsource the work and compete with you!

    Anyway thought I'd warn you all, I've been with clickbank for over 10 years and never ever did they compete with me.

    Paydotcom on the other hand worries me why?
    Try signing up for a free account at PayDotCom right after signup you get to a page where Mike Filsaime the owner of PayDotCome tries to sell you his internet marketing product using a video of himself.

    When you click NO THANKS at the bottom, you get redirected to a 2nd offer and video to buy his stuff.

    Seriously, I've got nothing personal against PayDotCom, but if Mike the owner is so unprofessional that he is trying to sell shit to new Vendors then there is a BIG RISK he will compete with you once he see's the stats on your products sold through PayDotCom.

    So Tell me what you think, I guess I'm angry do to all this truth I'm just starting to realize! :(

    He was originally a used car salesman. I don't know of a single used car salesman I would trust.

    Filsaime is the poster child for everything bad about Internet Marketing. He has a shitload of continuity programs - most of which are pure garbage - and if you make the mistake of signing up with your credit card (like I did in my early days online) you will certainly regret it. As another poster mentioned, he brought the used car sales techniques to the Internet. I was at a conference where I overheard this asshole talking to some of his 'guru' pals about how to keep billing people, even after they try to cancel. He did have one good product which was the Butterfly Marketing script, but it's a bit dated these days. Still a jerk.

    WoW Wiz... I didn't know that -- (too funny..)

    Remember how he promoted that get together at the
    Playboy Mansion and made it all slutty...

    One of his friends involved in the event apologized to
    ALL of his list said he didn't know of MF's promo.


    He especially apologized and glorified a certain female
    marketer... well I joined her list and she was baddd!

    Nothing close to being a marketer.


    Anyway, hope MF can change his ways, but I don't
    see any evidence esp. with PDC...

    Who wants someone like that in control of your bank
    or paypal account while spying on your methods?


    I seriously question ALL of the 'so great' marketers
    that team up with him... beware :eek:

    That hurt me deeply. :(

    I went from salesperson to sales manager to finance manager over a 10 year career in that business.

    But honestly, I wouldn't have trusted me when I had my game face on either. :D

    You have a valid point and i also thought that when i looked into PDC. I would guess he does look to see whats making money from the people that use his service and then runs with it.. Theres no way your really going to be able to tell he is spying on you tho.
