Hi anyone use Video Professor or know someone who has used this software.

What is the catch that isnt mention in this commercial.

Is it like the Audio Tape 1 cent scheme of the 80's ?

Are you committed after the 1st free CD? How much are the additional CD'S?

No but that sounds like a sitcom LOL

It the baldish hair guy who says I will teach you everything you need to know about windows (now he promoting his ebay CD) and he so confident that you will like his product that you will come back to him for more.



I thought having it mailed to my mom but I dont want her in that contract scheme as an above poster mentioned.

Many of their offers sued to be scam and people fell for it. It took media reports to get people's money back. I do not know how it is now.

Sunny, thats the ad where the lady says her 3 year old is better! TBH I wouldnt touch something like that with a barge pole. There are plenty of beginner websties that you can read for free, and you can always ask q's here.

It is a scam once you sign up for the deal where you get a cd for free and only pay the shipping and handling fee your credit card will continue to be charged monthly from that month forward. They will continue to send you the cd's until you catch on to them billing you and cancel them. That is the catch and I am not sure of how much the other cd's are.
