    What do you think?

    Is this an effort to get me to spend my hard-earned $$$$ on a worthless scam?

    or

    Is this an effort to get me to infect my computer with a devastating virus?

    Since he includes only an attachment and no links I don't think its a scam, but a virus.

    When I was 14 years old I lost my hard earned lawn mowing earnings to a three card monty game on the Chicago subway. Since that time I've always been suspicous of anyone that promises me "easy money".

    I'd like to know where they store all these potential shoppers in a pen, then release them on your website like you're the ONLY one selling what you sell....
