Yeah Whatever!

This is part of our security protocol to avoidd ouble claiming and unwarranted abuse of this program by some participants. Hahahahah What a lame story! Can't you think of something more creative than this???

All participants were selected through a computer ballot system drawn from over 30,000 company and 30,000 individual
email addresses and names from all over the world. This promotional program takes place every Six Months. OK you got me so I'm sending you my credit card number... what else do you need... --NOT!

Congratulations once more from our members of staff and thank you for being part of our promotional program.Reply with your full name,complete home address and telephone/fax number - Hahahaha They want me to send them more emails and contact info so they can send me more shitloads of Spam.


If one confirms even just by replying to the spam mail, that would confirm that there is a LIVE, HUMAN user from your end. This means more spam will come your way!

Mass Mailing Programs or BULK MAILERS send emails to a set of variables and random names, and play the sending by chance to get to your inbox. Random_name@yahoo.com, for instance, or A????@ho?????.com for instance could be sent to aaron@hotmail.com, or a111N@hostile.com, anne1@hotmaiol.com, etc.

This shotgun technique sniffs additional information either by virus or classic tests like the lottery tests. Once your reply is received from the Spammer's server,
the text in your reply is scanned for keywords that will Confirm either a live human, or a more sophisticated categorization of what type of spam you'll get the next time around...Making You MORE Vulnerable!

For instance, replying with financial questions may mean you are interested in Mortgage Spam, and credit Card offers...

Spam was here since the Fax machine was invented, it just got a hipper name.
Sucks huh? Burn them all... Burn --- seems the only way out. Or protect yourself by anonymous browsing and similar security programs. Google for the free ones, make sure it's not spyware!

After trying lots of things over the years, the absolute best thing I've found is hands down the mentor. This has changed my life and the lives of countless others in a really big way. It's really a combination of things - the proven marketing system, the national advertising co-op, the incredible Coastal Vacations web site, and so much more. I know people look every day to find the magic bullet, well if you truly want to discover how I make thousands daily, simply click this link... mentor.

I'm amazed at the number of people who think they can go to bed poor and wake up rich. It's a shame about how many people by into the marketing hype from people who can't prove any success.

If you want the real facts without the hype about exactly what it takes to put between $30,000. and $50,000. a month in your pocket every month, get ready to leave all the hype behind and get excited about what really does actually work. affiliate
