1)  Any ad that says stuff like "Language professors hate him" or "Doctors hate him" and then advertise some language learning program or some kind of alternative therapy.
 
2)  Ads that say "If you live in _________[insert name of city or state], you need to know about this important new law that could save you thousands"
 
3)  Ads that say "This is the treatment that drug companies don't want you to know about".
 
How do people fall for this?  The fact that there are tons of ads for different products all using this same technique should tip people off.

The diet or plastic surgery ones that say something like  '[Name of hometown] Mom, 55, looks 30', or 'Attention Moms in [hometown]:Big Diet Breakthrough!'

The ones that say "You have won something!"

Do they have any Bridges for sale?
I'm the friendly stranger in the black sedan, would you hop into my car!

"Girls in (the town you live in) are looking for you".
 
No, they're not.  If they were, they could open up a phonebook and find my number and address.  I'm listed.  Not one of these girls has called or knocked on my door since I've lived here.

Try standing outside in the front yard naked.
 
If nothing else, they'll see you on the local evening news.
 
 
And as we all know, it ever hurts to advertise. Thumbs Up

The ads for unscientific Internet polls that ask the questions "President Romney? - Click Here," "Repeal Obamacare? - Click Here," etc. And they usually have unflattering pictures of the people on the ad itself, created by someone with not-so-good Photoshop skills. I normally don't get political on these boards, but we all know that the folks behind them (the very conservative Newsmax.com) has an agenda with these polls. I would cry foul if a left-leaning site like The Nation did the same thing. If I wanted my daily dose of one side smack-talking the other, I would watch the so-called 24 hour "news" networks on cable.

It's the picture of the cop holding the strobing radar gun that gets me.
