Adsense Secret is a scam?

I saw this being promoted by JohnChow a couple of days ago but the mention of Joel scares the shit outta me because long time ago, I subscribed to his emailing list and that man cannot stop sending spammy emails which sound really tempting.

But this time, JohnChow makes it sound ‘workable’.

Buy AdSense Secrets 4 for only $9.95

The original AdSense Secrets sold thousands of copies at $97 and it was worth every penny. With the new version selling for only $9.95, there’s no reason not to add this work to your success library. The 230 page eBook will teach you everything you need to know about Google AdSense and most importantly, it’ll show you how to make maximum money from it. It’s good for both beginner and advance Internet marketers. I got my copy. How about you?

However, I am lucky to follow another blog, 45n5 and read this :

WTF? 99% of the site says I’m just buying an ebook. Everyone linking and promoting to this site says it’s for an ebook, but somehow I’m enrolled to pay $29.95 every month now?

I HATE that type of deceptive nonsense and so does everyone else. It’s the reason “internet marketers” have such a bad reputation, because people like Joel and Adense Secrets take advantage of them.

So, have you been scammed, yet? Beware of email marketeers.

    When somebody claims to know everything there is to know about something and making maximum from it and then selling all of it for $9.95, I know it is a scam.

    thanks for sharing the info.

    Hopefully nobody else falls for this thinking they are buying a $9.95 ebook just to have their account drop by $29.95 every month after.

    Seemed like a scam from the start, but I’ve always been pretty skeptical of these kinds of offers. Thanks for the warning though!
