    Jason – I get hundreds of these each week, as do many users users and the simple option is to mark it as Junk and Delete them. So may promise that you can make hundreds or thousands of dollars doing little or nothing, the only people who actually make anything from them are those who sell it to users who buy into it. As with any such emails promising ‘rags to riches’, once they have your details then more spam follows.

    Don’t be fooled with online scams, they really sucks! I got a lot of e-mails every now and then telling me some sort of winning but actually will scam you if you’ll attentively reply to them with your personal information.
