US Scams R Us

US entrepreneurs bring their "greed is good" philosophy to sleepy Brisbane.
Thousands of people are expected to attend several seminars in Brisbane hotels after receiving a personalised invitation in the mail, offering a free meal and leather organiser.

The seminar is thought to be a 90-minute presentation, complete with customer endorsements and promises of big profits via simple and effective software.

It is at a follow up "training" seminar, which reportedly last for up to 10 hours, that customers are pushed into sales contracts.
Note to US readers: nobody likes this shit.
