Not all scams are on the internet and I think this one should be given the light of day.
I am not exactly sure where this belongs because there does not seem to be a catagory here.
A few weeks ago, I recieved by snail mail an offer to recieve some free information telling me how I could become richer in life, wealth and love.
The letter was very flattering and stroked my ego as well as a desire to be wealthy and travel the world. This is all by design for you to take the bait.
The offer said that I had to return or fax back a form requesting the free info before that Friday coming up.
With hockey playoffs and the final arrival of some warmer weather for spring, I did not get around to actually reading the information until the Saturday past the deadline. I decided that for the price of a stamp, I would take a chance and send my form in.
I had been specially selected for this honor because I was entering the "second cycle" of my life and can accept the "Secret Society's Inner Secrets" that are over 2300 years old and been used by all the rich and powerful throughout modern history.......Whew! Heady stuff!!
Well, I guess I got lucky and they were not paying attention to the deadline that they had set. I am now a "New Secret Society Member"!
I am now in possesion of my "Secret Society Orientation" booklet and according to the instructions, once I uncover the secret message inside the 5 true stories in the booklet I "will come upon wealth and fame".
Now if I happen to NOT discover the secret message...."you still absorb it when you read your enclosed Secret Society Orientation booklet, and within two weeks, THREE very good things will happen to you involving money, power and love!"
This whole deal is to try and draw you in to buying the 680 page "Inner Secrets Manuscript" for the low, low price of $200.00 USD, L130.00 British Pounds, $270 Australian dollars, $235 Canadian dollars 150 Euro's $345 New Zealand dollars and the best part.....1,680 South African Rand but they only accept cash or credit card if paying by Rand......
This is all very convincing if you have read or seen any DaVinci Code or Angels and Demons books or movies.
Here is where Google becomes your best friend. There is a name in the booklet. "Kirsten Hart" comes up with enough warnings of fraud.
I have the free booklet. I read some....I'll let you know in 3 weeks if I become rich and famous.......
