She is one of the infinate numbers of people online out there thats willing to teach you the craft for free but then turns around and attempts to sell you books and classes for $80-$150 each which are mostly to their own expense (or at least so they claim).
For awhile she had me sucked in. I was signed up to her e-newsletter within minutes of reading her site and read every word of every one like a star struck teenager. Being as stupid as I was I honestly believed that she was the only person that could teach me the craft and would have done anything at that point to be able to afford all of the "cheap" books and classes she was offering.
After a few months of reading every email advertising all of the classes and more of her trying to suck me in I eventually decided to google a few keywords that were in one of the descriptions for one of the classes she was offering and was able to find plenty of info on the subject that (thanks to the local library not charging you for use of their internet and computers) was completely free to me. I was also finding some of the very same books she was trying to sell me free through the system as well and have subsequently added her email to my spam list.
Has anyone else gotten sucked into these scams or have they known anyone that was sucked into them?
