    Internet Scams

    I was thinking about making a thread so that everyone can post about various Internet scams...

    Perhaps someone can make this a sticky...

    Don't spend any money on streaming sites as they do not provide any sort of service that you cannot get anywhere else for free if they provide you with any service at all...

    If you want to watch free sports streams,..go to www.myp2p.eu...

    yeah(Open Only to US/Canadian/UK Citizens and Residents) We are glad to offer you a job opportunity at GULF OIL AND GAS. We need someone to work for the company as a Representative/Book Keeper based in North America. This is due to our not having an office presently in the USA/Canada or UK. You don't need to have an Office and this certainly will not affect your present job. The Company produces the following varieties of oil servicing equipments and provides quite a number ofservices:- Deluge Valves, Carbon steel Gear, Oil Hose Reel, etc.Our Service, Products, Operations across Rigs and refineries in Africa and the Middle East are second to none, we provide meticulous but yet speedy services on-shore and off- shore with our State of the art products. * The average monthly income is about $4,000.00 USD.* No form of investments from you.* This job takes only 1-3 hours per day About The Job: We have sales representatives all over the world to distribute our products.You know, that it's not easy to start a business in a new market (being the US). There are hundreds of competitors, close direct contacts between suppliers and customers and other difficulties, which impede our sales promotion.We have decided to deliver the products upfront, it's veryrisky but it should push up sales on 25 percent. Thus we need to get payments for our products as soon as it's possible. Unfortunately we are unable to open Bank Accounts in the United State (US) without first registering the company name and preparing logistics for warehousing and integrated shipment. Presently with the amount of Orders we have, we cannotput them on hold. For fear of losing the customers out rightly. Secondly we cannot cash these payments from the US soon enough, as international Checks take about 14 working days for cash to be made available. We lose about 75,000 USD of net income each month because we have money transfer delays *Your task is to coordinate payments from customers and help us with thepayment process.You are not involved in any sales. Once orders are received and sorted wedeliver the product to a customer (usually through FEDEX Or UPS).About 90 percent of our customers prefer to pay through Certified CashiersChecks and Money orders based on the amount involved. Your Task We have decided to open this new job position for solving this problem.Your tasks are:1. Receive payment from Customers2. Cash Payments at your Bank3. Deduct 10% which will be your percentage/pay on Payment processed4. Forward balance after deduction of percentage/pay to any of the officesyou will be contacted to send payment to.(Payment is to be forwarded either by Money Gram or Western Union MoneyTransfer). www.westernunion.comwww.moneygram.com Local Money transfers take barely hours, so it will give us a possibility to get customer's payment almost immediately.For example you've got 4000.00USDYou take your income: 400.00 USDSend the company: 3600.00 USD First month you will have 15-20 transactions on 3000.00-4000.00 USD So you may calculate your income. For example 18 transactions on 3500.00 USD gives you 6300.00 USD Plus your basis monthly salary, which is 1000.00 USD Total:7300.00 USD per month. After establishing a close co-operation with us you'll be able to operate with larger orders and you'll be able to earn more. Our payments will be issued out in your name and you can have them cashed at your bank or other Cashing Services. Deduct your weekly salary which is (10%) and forward the balance to the company via Western Unionmoney transfer or Money Gram money transfer. This job takes only 3-7 hours per week. You'll have a lot of free time doing another job, you'll get good income and regular job. But this job is very challenging and you should understand its requirements.

    Re: Internet Scams

    This is an example of what happens to someone whose mind becomes fixated on the truth of what these scam letters claim. Once a person switches into that frame of mind it's hard to refocus on reality.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Should I be worried?
    The poolhall's a great equalizer. In the poolhall, nobody cares how old you are, how young you are, what color your skin is or how much money you've got in your pocket... It's about how you move. I remember this kid once who could move around a pool table like nobody had ever seen. Hour after hour, rack after rack, his shots just went in. The cue was part of his arm and the balls had eyes. And the thing that made him so good was... He thought he could never miss. I know, 'cause that kid was me.
