This is interesting. I came across this trick that Markus Bender put out recently. Weird thing is, I came across it about a year and a half ago when it came out by Bill Abbott. Take a look.

It is in German, but you can use Google Chrome to translate the site.

Then watch this....

Too bad that people out there have to do things like this. Just saying. I did this in my act for some time. Markus version is 99.9% bang on. Including scripted gags that Bill Abbott put out. What do you think?

Disgusting. To quote a wiser man then me- "we speak with our wallets". As long as any company offers this product for sale I will not be purchasing ANYTHING from them. And I'll be happy to let them know exactly why.

Bender is a thief. Simple as that.

In Germany we are aware of it... And think like you. Bill Abbott is informed, Bender is loosing his reputation so far he had one before. Jan

Looks like the story is making headlines!

Do the right thing- support the creator and admonish the thieves and the companies that carry stolen products.

FYI, Mr. Bender has done so before with other products and never took consequences. He just puts down all accusations by blaming the community for being jealous of his "worldwide success".

It's laughable, ridiculous and a real shame at the same time.

Don't forget to jot down his name on your mental blacklist at least....

I suppose I should hold off on plans to sell my "invisi-deck" where a spectator thinks of any card and it turns upside down in the deck. Just as well though. I seem to get dizzy everytime I try to make a deck...

He is totally free of talent as a performer. This guy is a shame for the whole magic community of germany. Simply disgusting.

He is apparently the German version of American huckster James L Clark who still happily and merrily rips off his fellow perfomers and brags about it on web pages...ah, we are all so dumb and he is so smart right?

From James' site today for example on his rip off of creator John Sheets (somehow these guys justify their actions by boldly stating that the fact they are selling their rip offs and laughing all the way to the bank makes them smarter somehow than the rest of us... total garbage:

"WAITING LIST NOW IN EFFECT! THE DEMAND IS SO HIGH, WE WILL HAVE TO PUT ORDERS ON A LIST NOW. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE USE THE CONTACT FORM."

"Personal note to the haters: Thank you for the free marketing. I am grateful to all of you who get out there on the forums and help push people to my website. The more you talk, the more people know the truth."

The truth is that you and your ilk are simply parasites. Anyone can rip off - don't delude yourself into thinking you are clever when you are not.

Unbelievable, Brett - this sounds like a word by word translation of the quotes by "our" black sheep!!!!
No kidding: the same "high-demand-short-supply-BS", accompanied by mocking comments about international fame and envy.

Poor minds are wired similarly.
