The secret does not seem to have brought happiness to some of those involved in the creation of “The Secret.” But perhaps high-priced lawyers will help.
When I worked on Graham Ave. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, there was a fortune teller on the block. She would often come into our store/warehouse an offer to give my boss and his family (this was before I started working there) winning Lotto numbers for a small fee. My boss would ask her, "Why don't you just play Lotto with these winning numbers yourself?" She responded that her powers only worked to help others, and would fail if she tried to gain by them herself. She stopped dropping in eventually. I imagine that this line of bullshit has been used by scam artists since the dawn of mankind.
