    Question Is anyone here selling Land On The Moon?
    This is not a joke.

    I was searching for Old Affiliate Programs on the net, and I found this site from 2002 that is selling land on the Moon.

    You Can Buy Land On The Moon!

    That's right! Now for a limited time you can buy land on the Moon! There are over 1,125,000 lunar land owners from 176 countries around the world. To date more than 300 million acres have been issued to people from all walks of life here on planet Earth."

    ----------------------

    We started our affiliate program back in November of 2002. We were the first affiliate program authorized by the Lunar Embassy to sell Lunar Property.

    The amazing part is customers usually purchase more than one Acre at a time! It is really common to see purchases of 2 - 10 acres or more!

    Since people buy almost anything on the net, I wonder if anyone here have joined that program and is making money selling the moon.

    I now about selling the stars, but this one is the first time I see it.

    Hey, what's next, Mars?

    I raked in a fortune when Richard Branson bought up every moon plot through one of my affiliate links. He's going to put a Virgin banner up there with letters that are each 4 miles high.

    The funniest thing is they have a PR 6 page, and are listed in the Google directory - that's gold! How can I get rich selling people useless paper????

    P.S. - I'm going to sign up and put it under Unique Gifts...I'll let everyone know how it does over the next couple months. I'm sorry, but something this stupid has to be tested.... I expect it to flop, but you never know! Some people are really gullible...

    Caveat Emptor...
    I would stay away from this.

    I did a little research on it and found a couple articles about this hoax:

    "The bottom line is, he (refering to Dennis Hope - the originator of this scam) cant own property on the moon unless hes got a government to back him up. No one is claiming sovereignty rights on the moon. And if any government did, Id be very skeptical that any other government would recognize that claim."
    Quoted from Space.com - John Pike, a space policy analyst at the Federation of American Scientists.

    and from a CNN article

    In fact there are some companies that sell land on Mars. Some of them claim Mars is a property of US Army?!

    I just called them, they want me to manage their affiliate program.

    They say their last manager recruited some strange affiliates

    Yeah...come to think of it, I would feel bad selling this to gullible people. They can't help it if they're judgement impaired...

    Just saw Jorge's post... LOL!!

    True, although it might make a nice gift (in the same vein as the star registry nonsense) for a science fiction fan. Hm... I have a science fiction site... gotta go!

    There's a reason army's wear uniforms even though it makes them easier to spot. Sometimes that's what you want. Uniforms suggest organization, power, and numbers. These, in turn, inspire fear. And, as any good operative knows, there is no more effective weapon than fear.

    Maybe you should try selling that on eBay, it might get picked up by the news agencies, hehe... and of course, you'd need to have a link somewhere's to a site of yours....
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    With the great Moonscape land rush getting traction ... I'll opt to sell of time share condos and resort property, like where the astronaut hit the golf balls. That's now officially resort and country club property on a first come & served basis. (lawn care and pool cleaning is thrown in)

    I've already got my acre, it has a great view of earth and the sea of tranquility, but I'm having trouble finding a contractor to build my dream house and garden, does anyone know of any good ones?

    My brother actually bought his wife a star-name for Christmas one year.

    Hmmm, doesn't say much about my genes.

    I guess I should state that I'm the smart one.
