    Here are some great Tom Vu quotes. :rofl:


    • "Are you man enough to get off your lazy American a$$ and go to Vu’s seminars?"
    • "A lot of your friends will tell you, 'Don't come to the seminar. It's a get-rich-quick plan.' Well, tell them, it is a get-rich-quick plan because life is too short to get rich slow."
    • "Tom Vu says his system is different than other experts'."
    • "Okay. You've seen me make a lot of money. You've seen my students who are average people make a lot of money. Isn't is about time for you to go out and make a lot of money?"
    • "There's two kinds of work in America: hard work and smart work. Which one are you doing now?"
    • "This is not a country club! This is my house!"
    • "Today I'm gonna show you how to drive a sports car. First, you need a lot of money!"
    • "Don't listen to your friends. They're losers!"
    • "Do you think these girls like me? NO, they like my money!"
    • "At first I got lots of discouragement from friends and stranger who are loser! You know what these people kept telling me? They kept saying, 'Well Tom Vu, you a crazy nut, here you are, a poor immigrant, poor minority, speak no English, no contact, on and on, and you trying to be rich in America! You crazy, man! Look at people out there! They smarter than you are, they not even rich! Who are you to try?' And you know what? I have to keep telling these people every time, I kept saying, 'You are loser! Get out of my way! I make it somehow!'"

    I've been playing poker with Tommy for a couple years now, but the funny thing is that I didn't know about these infomercials until just a few months ago.

    He's pretty popular on the poker circuit these days, and I wonder just how many poker pros have no idea about his "legacy"... :)

    Hey, he's an inspiration to all the Iraqis who will be coming to America. You too can scam dumb Americans out of mega moolah even if you talk like a squirrel (although Iraqis tend to talk sort of like the French). You don't know English, so what, just rent a mansion and some local escorts to dance around while you tell people how easy it is to make millions by attending your seminars. You don't HAVE millions? So what, did W care that Saddam didn't have WMD? And besides, Arabs are the world's best salesmen, along with Russians. The American Dream lives! :dupe:

    JScott,

    He won a WSOP event this year and they showed the infomercial clips on espn. I think they aired some guys ribbing him about being "that guy."

    He was an infomercial guru back in the late 80's. He got in some legal trouble with the justice system around 1992 I think, and that was the end of his seminars. Anyone who's about 30 or old probably remembers him.

    Same thing they all get in. People paying lots of money and not getting what they they paid for. I think the Florida attorney generals office was after him and so he closed shop to avoid jail.
    William McCorkle came along and tried to pick up where Tom Vu left off. But William and his wife got 25 years in prison.

    Guess selling seminars via infomercials won't be my ticket to the fastlane...
