When A Service Can’t Commit To What It Is Selling

I’ve stumbled upon a service which promises your Twitter account to automatically grow enormously in terms of followers and make money on the way. It’s called TwitterTrafficMachine, and I am absolutely not going to link to them.

They might be nice people, good at what they’re doing, and this might be even legit according to all the involved Terms Of Service agreements of any of the services they’re using, but something about it doesn’t feel right. First of all, it looks cheap and sleazy. Second, and what I find most bothering, is that they try to sell you their service as something excellent, and then in the disclaimer page they say:

And you should also know that the testimonials here illustrate extraordinary results and unique experiences which do not apply to most customers who use our products and which you should not expect to achieve.

If I should not expect to achieve what you’re selling, then why should I buy it? If you have a service, don’t offer it if your client can’t expect to achieve what you’re offering.
