"And I know all this stuff about ‘too good to be true,’ but he went into great detail about how his brother was a paraplegic, and he helped his brother do this, and that the reason he was going to do it was because of me, he could only have one person under his wing, so to speak." It was in this vulnerable state, facing death and trying to care for his family, that Richard Joseph charged $20,000 on his credit card, money that he has yet to reclaim after phone calls, a lawsuit, and nearly three lean years.
According to Joseph, Martino was going to set up the new website while he was in the hospital, and he guaranteed that in thirty days Joseph would be making between $4,000 and $5,000 a month, working from his bed for an hour a day.He laid there for an hour, unable to move, while his daughters watched television in the living room.By the time he was discovered, the damage had been done. Eventually, Joseph would make it back to work at his law firm, although he couldn’t keep up his old pace.In the internet, con artists have found a platform that allows them to scale their scams far beyond the penny stocks and worthless real estate deals of the past.The Salty Droid is the pseudonymous blog of Jason Jones, a 36-year-old lawyer living in Chicago.There is another, legitimate form of "Internet Marketing" which operates much more closely to a traditional marketing business, but men like Raygoza have co-opted the term and run with it.
In some ways, his kind of Internet Marketing is an evolution of the old "make money from home, stuffing envelopes" ads you used to find in the back of Rolling Stone magazine, alongside those promising to make you a world famous songwriter or a musclehead who no longer has to take crap from bullies on the beach.
On a warm summer day in 2002, in Charlevoix, Michigan, Richard Joseph’s bad luck began.
The lawyer, husband, and father of two was walking across the driveway with a bag of garbage when his bare foot slipped in a puddle of water that had collected beneath his car’s air conditioner. While nothing was broken, the blow prevented blood from reaching his spinal cord.
Once you’re in the system, your inbox will be flooded with offers for software, DVD sets, and coaching programs costing several hundreds or thousands of dollars.
This is what happened to Richard Joseph: after requesting free information online, some unscrupulous Internet Marketer sold his name to Raygoza’s company, Push Traffic, who ripped Joseph off.
"I told him what had happened to me, and he said, ‘gee... I know what you’re going through, and I will help you out.’" Martino couldn’t talk him into anything straight away, so he began calling regularly, often just to chat.
