Nice Scam!

Everyone wants to get rich quick. A good way to ventilate the many "money making schemes" is this new invention called the internet. If someone walked up to you in real life and said, "I have a set of magic instructions here that tells you how to make all the money you want." I ask you, would you buy it? What if it cost a dollar and some change? Maybe $1.00?

That's just what many of these people are doing. Go to the website. Wait, don't click anything just yet! If you actually read it and the comments it seems pretty convincing. You know, too good to be true? 

Anything too good to be true, probably is. Just check out the fine print on the third party site, "Terms and Disclosures. By clicking the order button, I am ordering the Google Money System™ and trial membership for $1.95 s&h, after the 7 day trial I will be charged $47 a month thereafter if I do not cancel. I have read and agree to the Privacy Policy / Terms and Conditions / Purchase Agreement . Charges will appear on credit/debit statements as "Google Money System"..."

Folks, I'd hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there is no "get rich quick" scheme out there. The only way to make money is by actually having some sort of marketable skill. The only way to make a quick buck legally is by selling your junk. 

Want my advice on how to make a quick buck? Go through all your junk: DVD's, VHS's, books, textbooks, videogames, game systems, etc. All of those can be sold on for a fairly substantial amount of money. Not only will you make a nice dollar, you'll probably free up some room in your domain. Now that's common sense.
