True Story.
When I first moved to Boston a friend hooked me up with a desk job. All I did was call people from a list and try to sell, GET THIS, "An EMPTY Box".
That's right, an empty friggin box. I had my "script" and spent the day calling away. It was called a "Lead Generator" Who ever bought one got instructions to go to local stores, laundrymats and where ever else and ask to put this Lead Generator there. Passers by would fill out a lil scrap of paper with their name, address and phone number and drop it into the EMPTY BOX.
Every week or so you empty your box, sort through, toss out doubles and send all the names into our company. The co. was supposed to pay a penny a piece. So if you had a few dozen Lead Generators hanging around the city you were told you could make a handsome bit of $$$.
I pretty much stayed in my lil office and did my thing but none of it made any sense to me. I worked there a whole week before I realized they were scamming people AND selling the info that was sent in to other scammers so they could run their game too. I was mortified!
I stole my list from the office and called as many people back as I could to tell them what was going on.
So the next time you see a box in the store for a free vacation or a gym membership remember this and wonder who they're selling your info to.
As for the scammers, email addys at a penny a piece, maybe even less (?) it would take an awful lot before any real $$$ was made. I'd rather donate another buck or two than waste my time typing up a bunch of lad email addys.
BUT don't let this discourage you from posting another idea Emma. I've had my share of duds, I think we all have.
