    I guess it depends who you are talking about. Read my Forex hubs. No one has made me take them down..... Yet big_smile

    They will have a tough time forcing you to take it down I would think.

    I thought they put the pressure on the site owners to remove content. and i didn't want to mess up my rep here but hell if you can!! 
    I feel it would be disrespecfull not to take your advice!

    Hi Catriona, now I know it´s you wink.

    You know, the problem with franchising is that people (franchisee) sign those contracts roll and then there are not much to do about it sad.

    The best way to "attack" them it´s to alert people for the danger of those contracts. People are often grabby and that put them in the hands of franchisors greediness roll.

    Well, for a real case study and encouragement in exposing the lies told by marketing companies have a look at the free book available from http://www.merchantsofdeception.com

    This site is owned by Eric Scheibeler, and exposes the corruption within the Amway industry.
