Just when you thought it wasn't possible for the plot to get any thicker, dear reader, so the gravy consistency developed a viscosity more widely associated with treacle. That is to say, the plot just got thicker!
No sooner has James Burrows pulled down - or rather put up a 'sold out' sign on - his SmartMoneyPunter site, then a third entity positioned himself into the fray.
Clearly a fly-by-night ne'er-do-well other-three-word-hyphenated kind of person, this new chap, a 'Terry Flanagan', seems to have acquired a copy of the system and is blatantly ripping off both Burrows and the perceived original copyright holder, Anthony Greenaway, by offering it to a spam email list he's also got hold of.
I've been in touch with James and Anthony again, and both say they know nothing of this cheeky scamster, Flanagan.
DON'T BUY SMARTMONEYPUNTER from any source. For two reasons.
1. If it wasn't ripped off by James Burrows (and I'm far from convinced), it's definitely being ripped off by 'Terry Flanagan'
2. Even if you don't care about intellectual property rights ownership, the Smoke And Mirrors system has twice as many 'signals', and has been outperforming SmartMoneyPunter.
Yesterday's Smoke And Mirrors performance was impressive, even for someone who was quite cynical about the angle, such as me. The system made 37.25 points profit at SP and, given the prices of some of the beasts, I wouldn't be surprised if you'd made 50 points using betfair.

Either the Smoke and Mirrors system has been having a freak excellent week, or there may really be something in this... I'm still not certain and, at Â£97, you may want to hold fire while I take a look at what happens today.
If you don't want to risk missing some big priced winners (and, for sure, a fair amount of losers!), you can review the sales materials and acquire a copy here.
The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noted that there is yet another review begun on the blog now. Although it won't be of interest to everyone, this forex training and software system is reputed to about the best around. It's price tag reflects that in small part. However, the reason I've decided to trial it is because, when speaking to a colleage (Graham Laurie at Cash Master), he had said that using this himself he'd made over Â£50,000 in a year!
That's a lot of moolah! Now, I have to concede that I know next to nothing about forex, so I'll be as interested as many of you in how my forex review man gets on.
If forex is not for you, no problem - just ignore that, and take a peek at those things that are relevant to the way you see, and invest in, the world.
That's all for today - I'm off to Pall Mall for some preparations for Monday. I am hosting a small but elite group of Geegeez readers who want to learn how to research their own high quality racing service. So watch this space - there will be mini-Matt's before the Summer is through (actually, that's a pretty scary thought....!)
It's going to be a brilliant day, and I'm really excited to lift the lid on what I do, in the belief that it brings some more high quality material to the market.
I think we all agree we love racing systems and services. And I think the vast majority of us would agree that there aren't nearly enough good ones.
Have a great weekend - the sun is set to shine throughout. 🙂
'Til next week.
