Hoax Website Offers $100 Per Pound

This web site offers the ultimate incentive for people wanting to drop unwanted pounds. It claims to pay people for losing weight - $100 per pound!

The site is a hoax, brought to you by 'Dumbass Inc', so unfortunately you won't be able to take advantage of the concept... But how could an entrepreneur make it work? Perhaps a pyramid-like scheme where people have to pay to be part of the program and the pooled money would go to those who were able to lose the weight? The scheme could also be funded if the program required purchasing the vendor's meal plans, etc.

If a concept like this could be developed, it would get a lot of publicity and interested consumers... Stats for Get Paid To Lose Weight Trending: Older & Mild
