Could someone please fill me in on this one? It seems like every vintage men's magazine has an advertisement ecouraging men to pursue a career in accident investigation. Obviously, this was some sort of scam. Why would they advertise for an accident investigator? Isn't that a job for either law enforcement or insurance companies?
Regardless of its legitamacy, I love these ads. They make it look like you'll be the next 007. It seems nearly every ad features a pretty damsel in distress, and a sharp dressed manly-man coming to her aid. She's always grinny friskily, while he's professional and oblivious to her advances.
We were all hoodwinked by Sea Monkeys at one point - we now know they're nothing more than a type of shrimp. But has anyone ever figured out the scam behind the accident investigator ads? The booklets that you sent off for were free, so that's not where the rip off is.
