    I Just Read this check below - no mates it isnt mine by a long way so pls dont call it spam...lol...well working from home ...ummmh seen many programs like that, an most of them are bullies....I ain't sure about the reliability of this one....however they are charging a one time registration fee of 8 $ and you will be paid 5$ for every name & address you compile for their mailing lists....sounds like a total scam to me.....

    However, would wanna hear more from you people, what do you think ? is it a waste of time ? I think it is perhaps...

    Gotta go with the "No Domain name" rule. If your commissions are coming from someone who doesn't want to be tracked down by a Whois lookup...your collection dept. best have a local leg breaker in case you get burned.

    Just change the words:

    APPLICATION FOR
    COMPUTER/ INTERNET COMPILER

    to:

    APPLICATION FOR
    OPPORTUNITY SEEKER NAME COMPILER

    and you have a program very much like something that was around 15 years ago. Back then you paid $8 to sign up too. They sent you free fliers to send out (only now they give you a free site) so you can do the same thing. $5 of the $8 you pay goes to the person who referred you and the company makes $3. When you get your free site set up, you collect names of opportunity seekers and charge them $8 to buy in. You keep $5 of each $8. In my opinion, it's a scam to build a sucker list.
