Interesting article mentioned by Globe & Mail's Scott Barlow in his column today Six tricks ‘financial predators’ use to separate investors from their savings. Products mentioned are from the US. But, the techniques described are not specific to the US:

That is why sites like http://www.financialwisdomforum.org and its wiki http://www.finiki.org came to be. A place where Canadians can meet for financial education and empowerment. Sadly, too few google, or decide, to seriously take charge of their financial plan.

The Globe article is not available to non subscribers.

Would you re-post or summarize the article?

The Globe & Mail article has a partial excerpt of Technique #5, Social Proof, from the Real$martica article.

Full details about Technique #5, as well as the other five techniques, are in the Real$martica article.
