October 22 Update!

First of all, check out the brand new video, right the heck now!

Wow, we've been completely blown away by the response. 

We didn’t expect to sell out of the $100 perk so quickly, so we’re adding a new unlimited $100 perk. It includes everything in the old $100 perk, except the poster won't be limited and the physical copy of the Scam School book won’t be one of the first 200 copies.

We’ve added a stretch goal of $35,000 to produce the Brian Brushwood Revolution Deck. If we reach this goal, all contributors $75 and above will receive a Revolution deck in Q1 2013.

Watch the video for more details, and thanks again for making this all a reality.

What's This All About Anyway?

Hey all, Brian Brushwood here, host of Scam School on the Revision3 network.

For the past four years, the Scam School audience has been asking for a place to go to pick up all of the odd and fun stuff they see on the show.  So I want to launch ScamStuff.com, a sort of "Con Man's woot.com" for fans to go to get all the hard-to-find stuff I recommend on the show, from bump keys to flat-edged toothpicks, to the unusual shirts I wear on the show.

**Note: The above is a mockup of ScamStuff.com

The problem is I'm constantly touring with my live stage show to audiences across the globe.  Starting Scam Stuff would require me to stop touring for a couple of months to focus on making this project possible.

What We Need

The first product we want to make available on ScamStuff.com is the "Scam Pack."


what the scam pack includesThe Scam Pack contains everything you need to pull off over 115 of the best Scam School tricks, including 17 unusual or hard-to-find items and (most importantly) Theory 11's premium Rebel deck of cards. Everything will come packed in the first-ever official Brian Brushwood pint glass.

The thing is, we need $10,000 in total presales to launch everything smoothly. The funds will go directly toward purchasing the intial stock for hundreds of Scam Packs and other goodies we plan to sell on ScamStuff.com.

Additionally, this fund will make it possible to stop touring for some time to move my main focus to building ScamStuff.com, while keeping my family fed and happy, including the newest member who is due on December 24th!

Awesome Loot

We have perks of all sizes to fit your giving ability accordingly, from exclusive desktop wallpapers to personal tutoring sessions with me over Skype, and from digital downloads of the Scam School books to flying YOU out to San Fransisco be on the show!

1000 perk

(Important Note for International contributions: We'd appreciate an extra $15 to guarantee quality shipping to your region. Please just add this on top of your chosen perk leve. Thank you!)

For everyone who contributes $75 and above, we're hooking you up with one of the first 200 copies of the physical Scam School book! (That's right, I've signed my very first real publishing deal, and I couldn't be more excited!)

100 level perk

Take a look at the specifics of each perk - there's some seriously awesome, and highly unconventional rewards over there.

-Brian

PS - You are looking very tall and handsome today.  I forgot to mention that.
