The only thing I would sell at this point is ADVERTISING.

Even that is taking a little time..... No income yet....

But I assure you, if anyone receives emails like this, it usually is fraud.

It just happened to my sister but she was smart enough to not let it get too far and reported it to the banks and the FBI.

In her situation the guy was trying to order all sorts of high dollar stuff, mid dollar stuff and low end stuff up to about $10,000 worth. From PC. to LCDs etc...
Then the guy wanted to give her 5 different credit #s to her and have the 10 grand divided evenly among the cards..

She did a little research. There was no company listed in the state under the name he said he was from.
Called in the Credit #'s and they were not issued to the company he said it was. In fact they were listed to 5 different people. He even had the 3 digit codes from the back of each of the cards as well.
Good thing she caught it in time.

She knew something was up because she only sells to the Government.
So it jumped right out at her to receive a submission for a quote over the fax from the general public.

Just keep your eyes open for this $hit!
