Dear Webmaster


I am working for a client in the online sportsbetting industry. We
are looking for suitable partners to buy links from.

We feel your website http://www.psu.com would be ideal for our
advertising plans and would love to get a link on it.

Please let me know if you are interested and send on a list of quoted
prices.


I appreciate your time.


Best Regards,


Bryan

I concur.
Mr.B and co have a fine job. But it's time to take PSU to the next level.

Rusty, arrange a meet 'n' greet.

Actually, the Nigerian email scam is still working very well and fairly often.

There are occasional news notices of people falling for this scam all the time. It is kind of unbelievable people are still suckers for this but there are more old people new to computers that are n00bs to online and this is all new to them. The weird thing is the Nigerian email scam was going on before there was an Internet (pre-1994), along with chain emails, and it has found a new life with the spreading of Internet accounts. The other one is starting an online relationship with someone and starting to send them money for different reasons. A lot of old people have lost their life savings on this one. Then, the news was investigating a very sophisticated scam where the old person was not sending any money but agreeing to be a transfer point for Ebay sales, thinking they were doing a favor for an online love interest. The scammer would have stolen ID credit cards, use those to buy electronics goods delivered to the victim, then sell the electronics on ebay for dirt cheap, have the victim handle the shipping, so the ebay buyer would think he got a legitimate deal, therefore no source of an ebay complaint. For the scammer, even if he sold the goods for dirt cheap, it was all profit since they never paid for the items in the first place. Ultimately, the money gets pulled out somewhere and that is where the law enforcement has found an intricate path of account forwarding with the end point usually being some bank in Romania or other east european country, sometimes being deposited from there to some off-shore account in a country that won't allow further investigation into bank accounts.

Oh, totally our bad. We forgot to mention that we are trying something new here at PSU. Every week we are turning management over to a member of the community. This person will be responsible for managing our ads, marketing, and business strategy. Picking our first member was complicated, but I think we made the right choice. Next week management turns to comment #39 of this thread.

Whatever you do, don't tell Mr. B!

:)

This is why Rusty is where he is. Thinking outside the box. Internet meals. It's the future.
