    Just a warning. I got an e-mail from surefiremarketing.bz (for those who dont know, Surefire marketing is Yanik Silver territory although his is .com NOT .bz). The e-mail thanks you for the order and offers free bonuses. However, to get to bonus page, you have to enter your credit card details of your original purchase. The full e-mail is below, but it is a scam presumably to get CC details from you.

    E-mail below:

    BTW I should add that I got this e-mail about a month ago for the first time, and again today. The first time was a few days after buying an eBook from the real Surefire Marketing. Coincidence? I hope so.

    Do they think customers are silly? Would anybody give CC details?

    Unfortunately, I think there must be customers like that. You know the type. They click on the "If this banner is flashing, YOU'RE A WINNER!" ads to see what they've won, they click on when it arrives in their inbox, etc.

    There's a sucker born every minute...

    If people would quit responding/clicking on this cr@p, there would be a lot less of it!

    Those ads get a disturbingly large number of clicks.

    I also received such an email for two times. But in most cases it is easy observable that email is scam.
    So never give your credit card data for "confirmation"!
