Those Commercials,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, all advertise an opportunity to work at home.

These websites are advertised on late-night television, and if you visited the sites, you would see that they all look the same.

The sites encourage you to try working from home. They advertise:

If you fill out the short questionnaire, your information becomes a "sales lead", and you can expect a phone call or email within  hours.

However, the folks at don't actually contact you. Instead, they sell your information to other people. These other  people want you to join their Multi-level marketing sales force.

I have a suspicion that the "hbb" websites are run by the same company which produced the "10gain" television commercials  and websites. Check out their similar text and graphics. This may simply be a coincidence.

(The "10Gain" Work at Home Institute's Sister Site, Prospect

Prospect performance sells leads to Multi-level Marketing distributors, such as NuSkin (skin care products), Lexxus - NHT Global  (herbal lotions), PrePaid Legal and Herbalife (weight loss products) distributors. Herbalife in particular is a never-ending search  for new distributors. They would sign up everyone on earth if they could contact them.

Q1. Why do they have so many different websites?

A1. I believe they assign one website address to each television network. This allows them to gauge the effectiveness of the  advertising on, say, the Food Network and compare it to the response on Lifetime. 

Q2. Why are Multi-level Marketing distributors willing to pay for your information? Why is there so much demand for new "home  business" entrepreneurs?

A2. I believe it is because it is a lot easier to make money selling a "home business opportunity" than it is to make money  selling the products themselves. People opening a new business are encouraged to start with $2000 worth of merchandise, so  that they have a little inventory right in their own house. They are also good customers for credit card services, telephone  services, printing, lead-generation, and a hundred other small business expenses.


Q3. Am I in danger if I give them my name and address?

A3. Not mortal danger, just the danger of losing money.  You might want to prepare yourself for their calls. They will insist that having a job is for idiots, and that being in business for yourself is the best move you could ever make. Being in their business will involve making large dollar investments, and it will definitely have potential to utterly fail, vanishing with your money. They are good salesmen. Hang up whenever you want. You don't owe them anything.
