  2. I have received several emails recently supposedly from United Parcel Services (UPS) stating they have a package for me. The email contains one, sometimes two attachments that “contain” the information I need to receive the package. However, the attachment is not a document file but an executable file containing a trojan program which allows the sender to access your computer. Just thought I would pass this on.

  3. I was just looking into this Global Market Research company for research work that I was hopeful to get. What timely warning!

  4. Global Market Reseach – Website :www.tnsglobal.com-sent me a check for $1700.00 on Texas “Kleeburg Bank”- I was to wire $1100.00 to a Western Union Service/Money Gram after depositing the check in my checking account, i e-mailed Kleeburg bBank-they advised me by phone that no money had been put in an account at their bank to cover this check. Glopbal also told me to withdraw $400.00 and purchase items at Walmart and send the receipts to them -that I could keep $100.00 for myself; the remaining $100.00 was to pay the Western Union transfer fee.Since I knew wire transfers cannot be traced , and the phone numbers they furnished were land lines and not 800 numbers and i wondered why they would trust someone like me whom they knew little about their honesty, this seemed like a good reason to decline their offer. I was supposed to be a mystery shopper-looks MORE LIKE A MYSTERY AS TO HOW l WOULD GET MY $1700.00 BACK ALL FOR YOUR INFO – THANKS FOR YOUR PROGRAM. IT IS SURE HELPFUL AND ENLIGHTENING. DEE WALDREP

  6. I really like your website–both for its content and its appearance; It has a very beautiful, modern and clean (almost Zen-like) look.

    I have a question about a Canadian affiliate marketing membership company called World Profits, owned by Dr. Jeffrey Lant. They seem to offer a lot to their members. I know that Jeffrey Lant has been around for awhile–he is Harvard educated, has authored many books, and has been involved with mailorder marketing since at least the 1990’s. Have you heard anything?

    Thanx,
    Camille Accardi
