I had no idea there was a company preying on n00bs through a boiler room. That is repugnant. The promise of wealth, and sales based upon an appeal to greed, deserve to be prosecuted due to fraudulent claims. Without these claims, however, are sales of this material wrong? Who should be teaching others how to make money on the internet? Where is the 'good guy', safe for n00b consumption, list?
For people new to making money on the net, I always just recommend reading everything and suggest 'Do not spend any money learning' until you have an understanding of the industry.
