Per Jennifer's post
-The now-bankrupt business idea I was advocating wasn't a pyramid scheme, it was entirely legit multi-level marketing
-I never promised as much profits as I did
-the motor oil I sold you didn't work because you didn't buy enough of it
-The weight loss pills I marketed *do* work on those who just believe in them
-My perpetual motion machine *does* work, it does for days and days at a time
-The anonymous hint on that sport event WAS from a reliable source
-I *did* need your bank account information to process your funds.
No really, I'm the #1 person to warn you about a hoax (like in the examples mentioned), rather than to propagate (or initiate) one. I'm skeptical enough to find the hoaxes, too. But that's just me personally. So, what type is the ultimate hoaxer?
What common qualities might be found from those who initiate hoaxes for monetary gain?
