    For Dummy websites that never earned a penny (and never were going to)

    So, I think it is more than " didn't work the way you expected". If there was a promise of money-making sites.

    you better learn fast
    what claims to believe and claims are fake

    Adam was over-optimistic in terms of claims
    regarding the results of his websites

    yes that was kind of fake


    but at that time everybody was able to understand that already
    there is an obligation in each of us
    to do due diligence
    and protect your own ass yourself
    when it comes to trust somebody online

    you want to take responsibility for your own actions
    ( in this case trust Adam )

    the websites Adam sold
    were good
    a few years before he sold them

    so they worked
    in a certain time period
    and in certain industries


    you want to be the one who made a mistake
    that's the only way to avoid it next time

    Dear Frank,

    I do run a business, and I am fully aware of over promising.

    yes that was kind of fake
    but at that time everybody was able to understand that already


    Any supporting evidence to this claim by you, that these people invested knowing that was fake?

    they obviously didn't know
    but they could have

    for example:
    I asked on facebook in that group
    to see an example of one of those websites created by Adam
    -everybody could have done so-


    it was a very simple wordpress site
    with a form
    nothing more

    I could have done it in a few minutes myself

    so
    I decided $1400 USD is not quite the amount, I want to spend
    and everybody could have done so

    Because I wasted hundreds and thousands of my own euros
    in order to understand what might work and what doesn't
    just looking at that site

    there is no free lunch

    learn that
    and move on

    That ends the discussion.

    I could have done it in a few minutes .

    Not everyone can do that, Frank. People tend to believe a "Pro".

    Thanks for doing this interview.

    Adam is still knowledgeable and knows a lot about domain names. He's worth listening to. 🎧

    I disagree with his idea ccTLDs are always better. Only in strong extensions. Also outbound on the majority of domains is a waste of time.

    You should know when to sell and what to buy. Most people miss these basics.

    Thank you Adam. I do agree with you 10000%. Would you like to join some conversation at some time?

    .. we are planing to have next conversation with Adam Dicker very, very soon, but I can't announce it yet - need last confirmation :)

    Enjoy the weekend, H

    I just wanted to say that Adam paid me $300 back today via PayPal for a website project in 2014 that never came to fruition. Better late than never. This is money that I had accepted as being lost forever and a life lesson learned. It takes a lot to correct the past and I give Adam credit for fixing his mistakes even if it was 6 years later. It is greatly appreciated, especially in the middle of a pandemic and economic uncertainty.

    Appreciate the effort.

    Good start. When you actually pay everyone (I know it can't be done in a day) as soon as possible and post here stating that, there will be much more trust for you.
