Re: Awesome business opportunity!

There are a lot of gullible people in the world. Wish I could remove my conscience so I could make some $$$ off of them too.

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

Re: Awesome business opportunity!

Booth,
This is your opportunity to tell your boss to f^ck off.. Before you give out all your bank info, be sure and tell your boss what you really think of him, and how you will soon be purchasing the very company you work for, and will personally fire his ass on the spot.

Speaking of, you moving to WA?

Re: Awesome business opportunity!

Thread jack...

I guess I missed the official announcement - Congrats!!


Moving is a bitch. *Let me know if you have any questions, I've got more experience in that arena than I care to admit.

If the company is moving you, find out up front if the lion's share is direct billed or if it's reimbursed. *If it's reimbursed, hold off on buying that commuter bike cause you'll need the dosh.

Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

Re: Awesome business opportunity!

I've been getting several of these as well in the last couple weeks. I simply reply back with something short and sweet, such as 'piss off'

Re: Awesome business opportunity!

I have reported a few to the FBI and Some internet security thing, but no one has ever reported back to me.

I did see a story once, I think last year on someone that was even flown over to Africa as part of the scam.
He lost big bucks.

Reportedly others have flown overseas, and once there, their l lives are used as bargining tools to get money from the families back in the states.

So really really dumb people out there.
