    If it sounds too good to be true, its probably a scam.

    Stay away from things like this. You WILL get burned.

    That expression 'if it seems too good to be true...' applies even more to the net. Many of these scams don't even give you cash! They are no more than coupon clearinghouses that also make money by reselling e-mails addresses of their members.

    For instance, you might sign up for a site that reads: 'Get $50 for FREE!!!' Once you've signed up, you realize the $50 is actually $20 off a television, one month free long distance (when you sign up for a new plan) and maybe a 'free application' for a home loan! Plus your spam triples.

    If you want money how about lawn mowing?

  6. yeah, i had a feeling it was a scam of some sort....

    So, you want money enought to fall for a scam, but not actually work?
     
  8. If I had to explain my opinion as to the nature of Brendan's concerns, then I would infer that the quote in question was an example of sarcasm.

    As to said inferrence, proper spelling and punctuation would have cleared up the misunderstanding in question.
