It was July or August 2008 when John Danno
Promised to get my income growing,
By investing in his "Get Poor Inc."
My business would soon get going.

He said we'd sell computer software
On eWanker over the Internet,
The profits would soon be rolling in
"You won't believe what you will get!"

He as good as said if I stuck with him
Pretty soon we'd both be rich,
But when the sales came rolling in
There was just a single hitch.

People soon complained to eWanker
That the goods he sent were phony,
But since I was the one selling them
eWanker didn't want to know him.

Though I'd never seen the goods he sent
He's in
America, while I'm in Australia,
eWanker said I was the crook
That it was from my moral failure.

People took money from me through PayEnemy
But when I tried to do the same,
(I paid John Danno 60% of sale price)
PayEnemy said, "Distributor's can't be blamed."

"It's the crooked sellers who are at fault
And absolutely no-one else!"
So they made me pay from John Danno's crimes
But refused to give me any help.

I learnt my lesson about trusting others
Never do it when investing money,
If a deal seems too good to be true
You can bet there's something funny.

Now I never sell on eWanker
I found a better site, Oztion,
And at last, no thanks to John Danny
My selling income is growing.

I've also learnt that PayEnemy
Is no honest seller's friend,
So if you've got money to pay overseas
Find a safer, surer way to send.

And in the end what John Danno said
In a strange way turned out true,
"You won't believe what you will get!"
And I didn't, when I was screwed!
