    Scam Artist: The Professor!

    1. When I first this scam forum of TFSA, my mind immediately conjured up , ‘The King and The Duke,’ some elaboration, Samuel Langhorne Clemens(Mark Twain) wrote ‘The adventures of Huckleberry Finn,’ in 1885;
    2. Let me paint you a picture, Huck and Jim are on this river, they pick up 2 characters: “a man of about thirty, introduces himself as a son of an English duke (the Duke of Bridgewater) and his father's rightful successor. The older one, about seventy, then trumps the Duke's claim by alleging that he is the Lost Dauphin, the son of Louis XVI and rightful King of France. He continually mispronounces the duke's title as "Bilgewater" in conversation.”
    3. The first thing that should have rang bells was, Royalty stranded on a river! Oh really!
    4. They scam artists and among other things they pull off a scam at a religious gathering!
    5. It seems that from the time of that book 1885 people are not the wiser!

    7. “Health fraud" is often used as a synonym for quackery, but quackery's salient characteristic is aggressive promotion ("quacks quack!") rather than fraud, greed or misinformation. "Pseudo-medicine" is a term for treatments known to be ineffective, regardless of whether their advocates themselves believe in their effectiveness."

    I've seen these pamphlets on numerous occassions and have often wondered how people could still fall for this! I guess it works, because those pamphlets does not come cheap and they hand them out by the dozen...

    They seem to hand those flyers out all over - it must be a lucrative business.

    I had a chuckle at one of them the other day; there is a fellow who calls himself Prof. Willy. Quite hilarious, considering the, ahem, "services" that he offers.

    Yes, they are a million laughs. Firstly to become a bona fide Professor, you need to obtain a bachelors degree, honours, masters and Doctorate. You still don't automatically get the coveted title of Prof bestowed on you. You need to either have several textbooks published or numerous articles in a reputable journal. It’s only after this that a University will even consider giving you a professorship! It’s tragic that this practice is so wide spread
