This ad is being left online as an example of how NOT to promote on forums. The name of the product and any links have been removed.


Imagine for a moment waking up every morning, opening your inbox and seeing Dozens of " Notification of Payment Received " staring back at you!!

This New Amazing Fully-Automated Mini-Site is Revolutionizing the Home Based Business since 2009.
(Moderator: really? How come this is the first most people have heard of it? If it's so easy, so fast to produce MILLIONS of dollars for you and so automatic and effortless, how come it's so unknown?)

This Amazing Mini-Site literally sells itself and is constantly selling like "Hot" cakes as you're reading this. You can immediately start to create your own personal income Today. "It's that simple"
(Moderator: Not quite that simple, really. On top of all the time you'll spend reading and doing everything you need to do, you'll lose DAYS on this stuff, you'll have the cost of your domain name [US$7 - $15 per year] and hosting [a minimum expense of US$3.95 per month, payable for a FULL YEAR IN ADVANCE. Yes there are free hosting services you can use, but they tend to be really primitive, full of ads and notoriously unreliable.)

Own your mini-site Now! Signup at [link removed]

This may absolutely be the most simplest straight Forward 100% Automated Income Mini-Site ever seen on the
world wide web! Ranked #8 On Top Business LIST!!!
(Moderator: And which list is that? Why is there no link to the "official list"?)

Why this scheme is ILLEGAL in almost all countries

Why PayPal WILL…
  • close your account,
  • freeze your money for up to SIX MONTHS and
  • refund any money you receive to the people who paid you!


It’s a scam on several counts:

  1. It’s legally a form of chain letter that promises rewards. Illegal in most countries.
  2. It’s a pyramid selling scheme. Illegal in most countries.
  3. It breaches most countries’ postal laws if it’s a hard copy mailing. It breaches most countries’ anti-spam laws if sent via email. (In Australia, the penalty for individuals is $110,000 for each occurrence — that means for each person sent this unsolicited message.)
  4. It breaches PayPal’s Acceptable Use Policy and can result in your account being terminated and funds frozen before being returned to the original account holders. Terminal stupidity.
  5. It requires you to incriminate yourself by using your PayPal email address on the web site that proves your participation in an illegal scheme. (REALLY easy for PayPal to trace.) Terminal stupidity.
  6. In the UK and some other countries, it breaches lottery and gaming laws. Illegal.

For more details, including copies of court orders against participants in similar schemes (and copies of the FTC letter you could be forced to send each person who paid you under court order — publicly humiliating!), visit http://suckerbait.info/paypal-6-scam/.

Note: This version does what so many versions of this same old scam do: sell a "product" in an attempt to legitimize the illegality. It doesn't.

Quite the project there..

I would have to say, it would be nice if the efforts of others could make that much money...

The two biggest downfalls I see in that method are:
1. If everyone in the world did this, the bottom of the list would make nothing - leaving the only major earners the people who started it in the first place.

2. Anything that doesn't require any effort from you is generally too good to be true.

The only way to make an effective business is to get up off that chair, turn off the TV, and actually DO something.

It really doesn't matter what business that is - people are succeeding every day, but only because they have taken responsibility for their own actions and did it!

Terry, it has nothing to do with time. It's a scam — an illegal pyramid selling program or chain letter (it's actually both).

Go back and read the article carefully. It's pretty self-evident.
