About Paul Mindra and This Site…
Updated August 2020
Hi and welcome.
My name is Paul Mindra and I will be your host and guide here on this website.
I am a former career Hospitality Worker. Most of my working years were spent in helping myself and guiding others how they too could do as well as myself within the Hospitality Industry.
Like most, I started at the bottom and worked myself up.
That is the beauty and spirit of being able to live in an environment that allows for growth, acceptance and change.
I am in Canada.
Canada has been my home since 1969 and the Sothern part of Ontario is where I am and where I will probably finish my journey unless someone gives me an opportunity to see Africa.
I view “Africa” as the “New Frontier.”
Below are some of my past accomplishments in the Hospitality Industry dating back to 1980:
- The Magic Pan
- The Old Bank Restaurant
- The Sutton Place Hotel
- Hillebrand’s Vineyard Cafe
- The Old Stone Inn
- Liberty Grand
What an Industry it was. One of the most robust in the world when I was there.
10 years later, there is a pandemic.
I reach out to all my brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers and children that rely on the ‘Hospitality Industry’ moving forward that times are going to be very difficult. Think twice, act once.

The Scam Or Dare website is a Work In Progress
Websites are a living organism.
While I concede that websites are not actually living or breathing, I invite you to look at websites in a perspective that allows understanding why it is so important to grow, foster and maintain your website with the same respect as a living thing.
The purpose of this site will be to explore Internet Marketing. More specifically in the areas of Affiliate, Network and Multi-Level-Marketing. I will try to show you the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly about making money both online and off.
This site will also provide advertising space for companies, affiliates, leaders and distributors alike to advertise their wares with links, videos and banners to their respective ventures.
I will provide the information as accurately as I can and it will be up to you to determine whether what we are uncovering is truth, a scam or a dare.
Your comments and feedback will be valued so we can separate the Good from the Bad and the Ugly.
December 2019 – Truth, Scam or Dare
Click play on the image below to get a live update on what is happening in the world of COVID-19.
“In December 2019, the city of Wuhan in Hubei Province which has a population of 11 million and is China’s seventh-largest city became the centre of a pneumonia outbreak of unknown cause, with global implications and ongoing impact…”
The Slideshow will be updated as events, diagnostic testing, treatment and recommendations continue to evolve.
It is a sad truth that any large-scale health crisis will spawn its own misinformation on an epic scale.
So is there any truth to this global pandemic commonly known as COVID-19 or is it just a scam or dare?
I remember back in the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s the spread of “dangerous lies about Aids – from the belief that the HIV virus was created by a government laboratory to the idea that the HIV tests were unreliable, and even the spectacularly unfounded theory that it could be treated with goat’s milk. These claims increased risky behaviour and exacerbated the crisis.”
– Source BBC.com – Why smart people believe in Coronavirus myths.
Now, we are seeing a fresh inundation of fake news – this time around the coronavirus pandemic.
One poll in March 2020 found that 13% believed the COVID-19 crisis was a hoax and almost 50% believed that the epidemic might be manmade.
I call this to be a form of information overload. When thoughts flow freely and smoothly people have a tendency to nod along and agree. I see the same thing happening in internet marketing. You can see that a particular product is a complete scam but because of the way it is presented, it appears real.
“…Misinformation will include descriptive language or vivid personal stories. It will also feature just enough familiar facts or figures – such as mentioning the name of a recognised [authoritative] body – to make the lie within feel convincing, allowing it to tether itself to our previous knowledge.”
Think before sharing information
“When it comes to our own online behaviour, we might try to disengage from the emotion of the content and think a bit more about its factual basis before passing it on. Is it based on hearsay or hard scientific evidence? Can you trace it back to the original source? How does it compare to the existing data? And is the author relying on the common logical fallacies to make their case?”
Stop the spread
