TVI Express demonstrates logical fallacy on Youtube

TVI Express recruiter posts logical fallacy on Youtube for all to see

"5000+ members TVI Express WILL NOT BE WRONG, choose XXXXX as team leader".

This is the very definition of bandwagon fallacy
  • An argumentum ad populum (Latin: "appeal to the people"), in logic, is a fallacious argument that concludes a proposition to be true because many or all people believe it; it alleges, "If many believe so, it is so."
Consider the alternative explanation: this guy has 5000 victims, so he must have cycled like uh... 10-20 times over. So he made plenty of money off this scam. Do you really want to make him any richer than he already is?
