In a special message to all Adland Digest subscribers two days ago,
I reprinted the  letter which  was forwarded to me by independent group,
which handles now  refunds for services purchased due to PIYB advertising
in this newsletter and at .
This message is here again for those who missed it for any reason.


  Please inform ANYONE you can of this URL (who has used PIYB). and they can finally get the refunds they deserve!  As
the first part of an agreement between myself and other outside parties and
PIYB (Ron) - and outside group (ECCRS) is now refunding all PIYB customers
who qualify.

Customers who have already been reimbursed or had their services completed
(this mainly applies to Submit Extreme and Classified Exchange members) will
not be eligible for a refund.  However, everyone who ordered Daily Dose
(main product receiving complaints) or Ad Triangle and who has not yet been
refunded WILL get one!  Warn people that it wakes a FEW MONTHS to get the
refund check as all refunds are hand verified by us, and we do not have
open-access to the PIYB records so it takes time.  Again, EVERYONE will be

I must STRESS, please do not send a refund request if you've already
disputed the charges or received a refund.  This will only cause a bigger
delay in processing our valid requests!

You can also e-mail us questions, however questions about PIYB's services
will NOT be answered.  Only questions relevant to your refund will be
addressed.  Again, this service is NOT being provided by The People in Your
Brain, Inc (PIYB.COM) so our information is limited.  This service is for
refunds only, we cannot re-open accounts, give purchase credits, etc.

Subjec: Have you been scammed by PIYB???

Hi Bogdan

I have noticed a lot of articles in your newsletter about PIYB, the refunds
and the general 'SCAM' issue that surrounds the whole subject.

Anyway, I would like to give my point of view of the PIYB subject from a
different angle - I WORKED FOR THEM!!

Early in 1999 I set-up a site ( that submitted
people's sites to the search engines and the like.  After having my site up
for about 3 weeks and buying some advertising from PIYB I was contacted by
PIYB offering me a job writing downloadable software and to run a service.
I was very excited at this as I always wanted to work from home in the UK
and not have to worry about going out and doing a 9-5 every day.  I accepted
the job and gave up my 9-5 after a short while to concentrate on running a
better service for PIYB and writing software.

Everything went well for a while and then WHAM things started to get a
little scary and my association with PIYB was cut off (by them) after about
4 months of working for them.  This left me un-employed and even worse left
me in a lot of debt.

After a few months of searching for a new job and contacting people to
explain why I was not able to pay my bills I received another email from
PIYB asking me if I would be interested in starting to work for them again
and this time EVERYTHING WOULD BE DIFFERENT!!.  Because I was desperate and
probably because I am VERY STUPID I agreed.

Everything went well for a while AGAIN and then nothing - NO EMAILS AND NO
CALLS ANSWERED OR MADE.  This led me into big trouble and eventually left me
$7,700 in debt.  I couldn't believe it - here I was working for a company
that couldn't be bothered to contact their employees and tell them what was
happening - not even a 'one line' email - This went on for about 8 weeks.

After a lot of digging around and a number of calls to people in the USA I
found out that PIYB where closing down and were no longer functioning.  This
made me very angry as I have always believed that employees where supposed
to know what was happening with the company they are working for.

Ultimately, this whole situation of working for a company in the USA from
home in the UK has led me to believe that it is a bad idea to work for
anyone on a 'remote' basis unless you can find out all about them and know
that their reputation is solid before you start to work for them. So if
anyone is considering to give up their 9-5 to work on the internet then make
sure that everything is as it should be - DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I

I still receive a number of emails from customers of PIYB asking me where
they have gone? what has happened? and why the software they are using
(Submit Extreme 2000, Submitter 15000 and Classified Extreme) no longer
works.  In answer to all these people I would just like to say that PIYB are
no longer in existence and that all the software won't work because of it.
This is a very unfortunate situation because I have always considered
customer service to be the main PRIORITY and when someone tells me that the
software I wrote no longer works then it makes me feel bad because I
personally wrote it.

On a lighter note I have written a new piece of FREE promotion software that
DEFINITELY works and is moderated by myself.  People can download and see
what it is all about by going to and looking at the
'Wise Wolf Pages' software link.

Lastly, I would just like to apologise to everyone for the trouble they have
had with PIYB and would just like to remind everyone that I AM NO WAY
ACCOUNTABLE for their actions as I only worked for them and had ABSOLUTELY
no control other any actions (or not) that PIYB took.

Regards (and keep up the good work),

Subjec: Have you been scammed by PIYB???

Note from moderator.

Ed responded to special announcement  which was sent two days ago
informing  about PIYB giving refunds.


   Thanks for your assistance in this matter. It is
refreshing to see a sincere effort being put forth
such as this. Many companies on the internet are
just going for the fast buck, and a gesture such as
yours is the type of bright light that will make the
internet flourish instead of becoming just a hangout
for cash grabs and con artists. I commend you for
your dedication to your subscribers.
    There were approximately 20 people that signed up
directly from my PIYB page, but I do not have their
email addresses. I can only hope that they subscribe
to Adland Digest and will receive your message. The
PIYB site concept seemed to be working because I got
several hits from the material on my site and subsequent
additional downline listings before PIYB went off-line. I
don't know what happened and probably never will,
so it is onward and upward. I'll just add this to the
continually increasing list of internet program dropouts.

Thanks again,

Ed Cummins

Dear Bogdan:
       Thank you so much for this information.  I have just sent a request
in with a short letter to the address you have sent.  This is very helpful
and greatly appreciated.  It is unfortunate that this has all happened, PIYB
certainly seemed to be an upfront company, as I'm sure you were assured of
also.  Thank you for looking out for our interests out here, and all of the
time you have taken on our behalf.
With best regards,  Randy

Bogdan mentioned:

PIYB wasn't recommended but advertised. I never gave them any
In fact I was printing this line under each PIYB ad.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Please Support Our Sponsor~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The above guarantees are made by Sponsor not Adland Digest publisher.

I feel in all honesty that is a half-truth.  In a long past issue of this
digest, I made some references to what I felt at the time to be a
*scam* regarding PIYB.  If I recall correctly, part of my posting was
allowed with a moderater comment saying they are paid advertisers
and to kindof leave them alone. (don't insult them.)

ANYway- the post had to do with my telling the readers that the
Warrior group was the best marketing
help/information/ be had online.  I said it to be
Helpful.  To sincerely Help people.

I hate it when something like this happens.  There are too many
sharks in the water.  I've been online for 6 years - actively
marketing for over 3 and I've seen a LOT.  I have always been very
careful in selecting what I buy into.  I understand that a lot of
people bought into PIYB because it *was* advertised here and for
no other reason EG: in essence - supported-recommended.

Everyone of us that runs an Ezine, digest, newsletter ect...Knows
that we must choose our advertisers Very Carefully because like it
or IS a reflection of US.  It will always be so in this medium
IMO.  I know my readership *trust* me to point out only products I
myself have tested out...and so thats what I do.

I Never Ever recommend anything I have not test-driven.  And if it
stinks, I say so and I don't care how much they want to pay me to
say otherwise!  My readership is too darn important to be *had* for
a few $$$.
I have one other thing I wanted to share in this post.  It has to do
with the most wonderful little tool I have ever run across and it is
amazingly - free.  It's called HumanClick and if you have not yet put
this feature on your site - you are missing the boat.  Just since I
have been writing this post I have had two calls to talk with people
on my website resulting in one sale.  Ratio seems to be that for
every 3 people I actively chat with - 1 buys.  I've been using
humanclick for about 2 months now and it's just - simply the best.

Investigative Resources for Everyone

Note from Moderator.

I have already responded to  Melanie in my private post  and presented my
position to her point of view and I'm just presenting short version of it

Adland Digest purpose is discussing  issues about  web marketing and
promotion, not programs related to generating  money
(which PIYB offer was).
Paid offers in Adland Digest are not my recommendations. I'm not in business
of  "building wealth" but in helping with promotional methods, advertising ,
building  of your own internet business (regardless of what it is) and
helping in exchanging of this information.
The only recommendations from me you will see in section "Word from Editor".
PIYB was an advertiser as anybody else here in the digest and at . In fact PIYB was one of over 1,000 advertisers
since they first approached me and contributed about 2% of my revenue.
PIYB managed to book top sponsor message with me for a long period
of time, which might have made impressions like I'm supporting it.

Anyway sorry for any troubles  if you were one who purchased their
service. I hope that this new announcement regarding refunds will
work out well and everybody will  be happy.
And remember if you want my recommendations then read "Word from
Editor" section or email me.

Why Bother Giving Away Free Stuff?

This new site ( )is possibly an example,
although extreme, of how to give away freebies in order to gain
revenue attracting traffic. While downloading pranks, the person
is surrounded by ads.
Will it work, yes!
Can this work on your site? Probably not, is designed for this
type of freebie.
But, what if you designed your business site around free stuff? Can you
capture an audience?
Yes, but to make it really work you should have linkable content, something
someone can take with them that always has a link back to you.
Take a look at the free download I have for people that need help
downloading. Go to:
and download Emote. This is a little program that is a sound card for your
desktop. It cheers, claps and boos. Many other sound effects too! And it has
a direct link to my website! BTW, it has been downloaded more than 400 times
since went live on March 26 2000.

Well, Thanks for reading, and remember to review my site.

Subject: Surfing A Triangle Shaped Wave

Subject:- Who needs 250 Paid To Surfs?
From:- Neil

There has been quite a few articles about Paid To Surf programs and referral
programs so I thought I would have my say.
The thing is about referral programs is that there are just two many Paid To
Surf programs list, some sites have up to 250.  This is far too many, and it
doesn't matter how much you advertise your site your downline will grow very
I joined AllAdvantage, Cashsurfers, and in January then popped
along to Maxref to register them there and just advertised my Maxref site.
I now have a whopping four people in my downline! I stopped advertising
Maxref at the end of February because it's hard enough getting people to
your website, but the chances of them joining the same programs as you when
there are a couple of hundred to choose from is pretty slim.

I joined a new Paid To Surf program on 3rd March and just advertise that
site, I have got 91 people in my downline.  The reason I am getting so many
people in is that it is new, in fact it's that new it isn't going to be
released for about two weeks.
The site can be found at

Another major factor is that I advertise to over 199000 FFA's and send my ad
to over 780 opt-in lists every day without spamming and without receiving
any junk mail at all. I only use this site for promoting, there is loads of
stuff and secrets you can use, sell or put on your website. I've only been
using this site for just over a week, but it has helped me put in over 50
people in my downline. Go to :-

Well thats it, I've said my piece.
Good Luck

Subject: Looking for the truth on E-Commerce

In last two issues there were posts about truth on E-Commerce.
and one of them from   Bob K <>
in which he  writes.

Comp-Designz Has the Online Business person in mind. With an Ecomerece
Website Hosting of just $18.95 a month. Includes a user friendly Shopping
cart, site statistics, Database managment, 20 full email accounts, 100 meg

It is easy to purchase website hosting for a cheaper price from many
copetitors, but are you getting the most for your money! Is a shopping cart
program included?
Can you activate Active Server Pages, CGI, JAVA, a Real Video server.
Comp-Designz can.

Are you interested in accepting Credit cards over the internet.
Do you know the costs, setup fees, monthly fees from merchant and bank
services fees per month.
This is not talked about as openly as one would like. Do you know how to
link your shopping cart to a Merchant account.
Did you know that most Merchant accounts require a 48 month contract.
Why get stuck in a contract for 48 months.

We Go the extra mile for our customers. The is no need to keep them in the
Most companies are hard to reach for question like these.
Review your hosting company and see what exactly you are getting. If after
they tell you what they want you to hear instead of what you need to hear
give us call. We will try to help with any question. Stop playing hide and
seek with your hosting company!
Call us, no hype no gimicks just truth and hosting is what we promote

After reading it,  our investigetor  Peter G. Browne decieded to check it
and write about it in his series of articles in regards to truth about
e-commerce .
He asked Bob K several questions and verified the site in terms of what
was writen here  and on the site itself.

Emails where being cc to me and I'm just summerizing it here.
It turned out that  the certificate on one of the sites linked from  the
main site was just fake one on which  owner responded.

The site you went to does belong to us. However it is not
an E-Commerce site and the Certificate that you viewed is a fake one. Yes I
said fake. Lets be honest that is what I pride my self on. We are testing
one of our servers that we are going  to use. This fake SSL certificate lets
us know that it is working on our end. We activated it just briefly.
If you were to see one for our site it would be a good active one.
We do not have a need for it on that site because we do not have a need for

On which Peter responded.

While this might be a true statement I did not see you provide me with a
link to the "real" site.
You also failed to answer the list of 25 questions that I submitted to you,
these are basic questions that anyone shopping for a design and hosting
company should ask and that you should be able to answer.

Based on this conversation I can conclude that some of the claims in
previous email where either not entirely clear/true or they still need
to be addressed.

There's been a few internet connection software programs for speeding your

best I have found to date. They have a great product, it's inexpensive and
there is a 2-tier affiliate program that pays quite well. No need to

You've got some good stuff there (your latest newsletter)
but you DO need to run a spell check on it before sending it out.

There is no faster way to destroy your credibility than by
misuse of the language.

Don't take offense - just trying to help.



Note from Moderator.

I always  spell my own contribution here but I wasn't sure if I  should
be modifying original posts (which I hope R. is referring to).

My suggestion to all of you who contribute to digest is that you run
your spell checker before you send your message here.
I will also make sure that all posts are checked.
The only problem is that you might start seeing Canadian spelling
of some words in your posts.

Like for example word "offense" in my spellchecker is "offence"
unless "offense" is misspelled.


======================N e w P o s t i n g (3)========================
From: Lauren Armstrong <>

My sister sent this to me, and I completely concurred.


    I am hereby officially tendering
    my resignation as an adult. I have
    decided I would like to accept the
    responsibilities of an 8 year-old again.

    I want to go to McDonald's and think
    that it's a four star restaurant.

    I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud
    puddle and make a sidewalk with rocks.

    I want to think M&Ms are better than
    money because you can eat them.

    I want to lie under a big oak tree and
    run a lemonade stand with my friends on
    a hot summer's day.

    I want to return to a time when life was
    simple; When all you knew were colors,
    multiplication tables, and nursery
    rhymes, but that didn't bother you,
    because you didn't know what you
    didn't know and you didn't care.

    All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware of
    all the things that should make you
    worried or upset.

    I want to think the world is fair.
    That everyone is honest and good.

    I want to believe that anything is
    possible. I want to be oblivious
    to the complexities of life and be
    overly excited by the little things

    I want to live simple again. I
    don't want my day to consist of
    computer crashes, mountains of paperwork,
    depressing news, how to survive more days
    in the month than there is money in the
    bank, doctor bills, gossip, illness,
    and loss of loved ones.

    I want to believe in the power of
    smiles, hugs, a kind word, truth,
    justice, peace, dreams, the imagination,
    mankind, and making angels in the snow.

    So . . . here's my checkbook
    and my car-keys, my credit card bills
    and my 401K statements. I am officially
    resigning from adulthood.

    And if you want to discuss this
    further, you'll have to catch me
    first, cause........
    ......"Tag! You're it."

This just reminded me of my current internet life.  I am trying to make
money at home with an internet business, so I can spend more time
watching movies, reading books, surfing the web, and going on picnics....
and dont forget the occasional game of tag.  (ok, so in my house it is more
of a daily event...but that is besides the point.)  I have found that the
important thing to being effective at any business is setting a goal and
that in front of you at all times.  Make sure that it is realistic, make
sure that
you are comfortable with it, and make sure that you can live up to it.  I
have found that by doing that, you are more likely to be successful, and
more likely to keep your sanity.  I have been looking at these affiliate
programs and other such money making programs for months now.
I have found mine which is making me a lot of money, and requires little
amount of work.
I firmly believe that the reason I have been successful is beacause of my
goals.  One of which was to allow me time to try and publish my poetry.  And
I just found out that I am being published in a world wide peotry magazine,
both on and off internet.  I would say that I successfully accomplished my
goals.  I wish all of you the best of luck.

looked for your site. What you can show me, can you gimme something free??
-- something for testing your statements of professional know-how?)

From: "Robert Lee" <>

Hi Bogdan and Mark,

For this site review:
Well I cannot call this a success story yet, But I think perhaps I will
Soon. I am a relative newcomer to mlm and therefore would really appreciate
some feedback from the more experienced. I have just put up my own webpage
Mark Stephenson

Mark, welcome to the internet. You are new and it shows. I have reviewed
many sites here at Adlands and find yours to be like all of the rest.
A page full of links.
I am usually brutally honest and I will not spare you either.
You say "We take the guess-work out of e-business for you".
I am guessing that you have a multitude of people working for you and have
the time to administer 12 or so websites that you use to help with the
e-business services that you offer.
Oh, sorry, those aren't actually your sites, are they? You just link to them
to earn some money.
Hmmm, never seen this before.......
>>SARCASM now turned off>>>>>
Mark, you give not one reason to visit any of the links you have. Maybe it
is good information, maybe not. But without any reason to click on one link
over the other, it seems that I'll be wasting my time at your site trying to
find the help that you are pretending to offer by offering me services that
exist elsewhere.
Why would I end up on your page as opposed to just going to a search engine
and typing in "make money with my e-business"? At least the search engine
would give me about 10 words to use as I select one link over the other. You
give me no incentive whatsoever to select a link or even return, ever, to
your page again.
Even your offer of a free consultation service is only a link to your email.
With no idea as to what kind of help you are qualified to give me or what
kind of help you are ready to give. You need some CONTENT!

I've said it many times "Pick a single area and become an EXPERT at it". DO
NOT add money making urls to your page without telling the visitor why they
are there!
There are a million (actually probably more) pages out there like yours.
Heck, I even have a few, just take a look at:
This series of pages was made almost 2 years ago. All I can say is it does
have some content. It isn't pretty, but it works and filled a need I had
then. Now it just works for me as a resource for those that do need the
information that I have there. AND it is linked from the home page of the
site where the real reason is to make money from dating services. The link
to the home page is in the top banner. I don't really care if the person
using the make money information goes back to my home page, they aren't
interested in dating to meet people, they want dating to earn $$$
Take a look and you'll hopefully get some ideas on how to craft your page
and really, really make it work for you!
Good Luck,
Robert Lee.

Economical Use of Banner Ads On Your Web Site!
by Joe Reinbold

Ever go to a site and there were a dozen or so banners and it
took forever for the page to load? If you are selling your own
product or service or selling for affiliate programs that you
belong to, you probably have banner ads available.

Most affiliate programs will have a good selection of promotional
tools for you to use when you sign up. Banners are usually one of
the tools that you are given. If you are trying to develop
multiple income streams you probably are associated with a number
of affiliate programs like we are. Some can be for products, some
for services and some may be network marketing type programs.
Plus as I mentioned earlier, you may also have your own
products/services too.

No matter what the type of program or product you are offering,
the one thing that you want to do is get exposure for them so you
get sales or member sign ups. For purposes of this discussion
let's say you are associated with eight such programs or products.

So here you have eight different banners you want to get prospects
to click on to increase your income stream. What do you do? Do
you place eight different banners on your web page? I wouldn't!
First it doesn't look very professional to have a page cluttered
up with eight to ten different banners. Secondly, it will probably
make your page load very slowly and you will then create what I
call "click aways", when someone is waiting for your page to load
and it takes so long that they just click another link to another

What's the solution? Get yourself a rotating banner script. You can
get it free and it really isn't that hard to set up. What is a
rotating banner script? The one we use is a cgi based script which
allows you to load as many banners into it as you want to rotate
and place a short one line of html code on your page. Each time a
new visitor goes to your page a new banner comes up automatically.
If you want to see one in action, go to one of our pages at:   The banner on the top of
the page is on a rotating script. Let the banner load and then
hit your browser "refresh" button and you will see another banner
come up in its place. Repeat it as many times as you want, and it
will randomly select a new banner from the twelve or so we have
loaded into the script.

One other neat thing about this is that you can have the banners
rotate on as many pages as you want and you only need to set the
script up once on your site. We have it on about 20 pages of our
site. All it takes is to put that one short line of code on the
html page you want the banners to appear on. The more pages you
have it on, the more exposure you get. If someone surfs six pages
of your site and your happen to have the banner script on those
pages, there is a good chance they will see six different banners.

So where do you get it? While there are a number of the scripts
available both for free and for a fee, we got ours for free from
Cliff's Perl Scripts site. Just go to his site at: and look for "Cliff's Banner
Rotator Version 2.51". There was a link to it right on the first
page the last time we were there. Then just download the files
(there's only 3 small ones), follow the easy directions and upload
it to your site.

It is a great way to get exposure for the multiple activities
that you might be involved in. You can put 2, 5, 8 or 12 like we
have. You could even put different banners from the same program
(we have two from the same program in the rotation). Be creative!
You could even sell space on a rotating script! Take a look at it
and see if you might be able to use it to your advantage and
create a more economical use of your web real estate.

======================Joke of the Day=====================
Taken from Joke a Day

A state trooper pulls a car over on a lonely back road and
approaches the blonde lady driver.  "Ma'am, is there a reason
that you're weaving all over the road?"

The woman replied, "Oh officer, thank goodness you're here!!
I almost had an accident!  I looked up and there was a tree
right in front of me.  I swerved to the left and there was
another tree in front of me.  I swerved to the right and there
was another tree in front of me!"

Reaching through the side window to the rear view mirror, the
officer replied, "Ma'am...that's your air freshener."
