So I was hopping around the net and saw the 'smokeless cigarette' ad @mydigitallife....and this reminded me of a tale told to me by the people working at ccs of a even more 'sinister' company in the ports mouth area..This company has had many names and many faces but the 'tactics' employed never changed..

This is how a 'call for that' usually went..

you called in looking to quit/heal something with the help of some product they offered for free on the tv and gave a 1800numbers to contact a rep..So this product has shipping and handling requiring the 'use' of a credit card and once that hurdle was overcome, you are already 120$ deep a being 'picked' for a 60+ dollar monthly fee for refills of the cartridges or pills or a fake 'service' like get rich quick realestate listings...

In the regards to 'quitting cigarettes' many verbal attacks are used to analyze the callers 'need' for x product. such as:

Do you want cancer? Do you want your kids to get cancer? Are you a healthy person? 'why' do you not want this to 'help' with your struggles..is it the 'cost'?

much worse has been described to me.. But I hope the picture is somewhat clear.. if not please post about the area you want to understand more..

Well consider drugs for instance, I believe in Canada and Finland and such places they have a "safer" heroin that actually helps the abuser get off the drug, and gives them a safe environment so to prevent overdose, but here in the states its completely illegal and they rather give someone Methadone, which if you mix any other pharm or whatever drug with it (even benzos) you're most likely going to die - not only that it was produced by Hitler's scientists to keep his officers and ect in check. Government and big suits are just the same old hags running around trying to kill everyone and get money because they think they will take it all to the next life with them; pffft.
