I beg to differ, he knows exactly what he's doing. Extorting ignorant people.

A guy I know recently got into the CieAura hologram stickers, everytime I see him he's got to tell me about how great they work. I don't get it, the guy is real smart, but it's like he's totally bought into it.

I totally agree man. My mother is a very intelligent and extremely successful person within Wells Fargo.

Her having lymphoma and refusing to follow traditional medicine has really brought out her vulnerability. She said it herself last night; if she saw it (the sticker) on the shelf at a store she wouldn't believe it, but bc it came from the source it did, she didnt even ask him to explain it.


Really dissapointing.

Sounds like he is abusing his powers as a "professional". Then again doctors just write prescriptions which are just bandaids or stickers for the rest of your life anyway..

No money to be made in cures.

Ever have a conversation with a friend who is in real estate? They will tell you things are amazing and they are doing all these sales and leases. They have 100's of listings and they have people biting on this and that. It is all about selling the perception they want you to have of their product. Good salesman can do this rather easily.

It is especially easy if you have people that want to believe/are ignorant. I doubt your friend has bought into anything. But it is in his best interests to make you (or anyone he is selling to) believe that he stands behind the product.

Yah I know, but I've known the guy all my life, I figure he'd level with me. He's even pimping it to his own family members.

Sounds kinda like a a leech to me. But if he sees the opportunity to profit and is willing to toss aside his scruples, then your answer is clear.

Sociopaths make GREAT salesman!

I'd be frustrated too if a family member was doing it. His nephew has totally bought into it as well, they are both smart guys. I don't get it. I see them always wearing the holograms. The nephew swears by the sinus patch, and they use the energy ones when they work out. They are both in great shape, but it's not the damn stickers!!!

It's amazing how even intelligent people can be suckered in.

Yea, it's just temporary. I quit my job in Boston to look for better opportunities in NJ/NY (which I have found). Moving home was my only option to quit my job and leave MA.

I'm 23 if that means anything.
