It may be one of the most widely quoted quotes on the internet, but what you get when you read it is not what you expect.
The fake quote “You can make money on happiness quotes” was written by an Australian called Jason Whelan, who is famous for claiming to be an expert in happiness quotes and life advice.
He has become a notorious tweeter, and has had his Twitter account suspended and has been banned from using Facebook.
In his first tweet in November, he said he made $30,000 on the fake quote.
The claim came in the form of a $30 credit to his Twitter followers.
A few days later, he wrote again: “Just to clarify: I have never made money on anything, nor do I know of anyone who has.
Whelan’s followers then shared links to the fake quotes. “
I never made any money on this quote, nor am I going to make any money from this.”
Whelan’s followers then shared links to the fake quotes.
He has since deleted his tweets and has not replied to a request for comment.
However, the fake money was made off of a Twitter account called the Life Insurance Marketplace, which is not owned by Whelans company.
And as you can see, the money was not a real life payout, but instead a parody of one.
It’s easy to get caught up in the fun of being “happy” in the fake life insurance industry.
There’s plenty of fake happiness stories, but it’s the fake happiness ones that really make you think twice.
The fake quotes may seem fun, but they can have real consequences if you don’t act on them.
