My religious beliefs have protected me from this marketing scam and it kills me to see some who claim my faith buying into this and encouraging others to share in their deception.

My husband reads so much junk mail promotional material it disheartens me. he's almost 81. He passes me many sales brochures and "newsletters" that promote health supplements. I can see every one of these gimmicks in use there. I can't always talk him out of biting. I will probably develop this more in a separate post as soon as I have time.

At least I know he won't bite on LOA. So far we aren't on all the self-help mailing lists. I mostly see those promotions on social media and blogs.

I don't like watching videos, and print is much easier to analyze. The minute an email pitch leads me to a video, I click away. I will scan a transcript if it's provided and skip to the details at the end.

I don't have time to watch long recitations of emotional testimonies. Just show me the scientific studies! Then I will decide. If there's no transcript, I will click away.
