Don't be a donkey, they just want a mule

Hi folks,

Today I received this in the email...

>Hello ,

>Make $10,000 per week working from home. No experience necessary.

>Do you wish you could make money regardless of where you are, work or home?

>Stop wishing. Get a life of freedom where you can do what you want, when
>you want, all while making a good living from wherever you want.

>Register on our website,"

Ten grand a week working from home? Gosh, I'd be a fool not to follow up on that ... wouldn't I?

Heh. If you follow up, of course, eventually you find that all they want you to do is move money through your account, for which you get to keep a percentage. Very easy money.

Or maybe they want you to receive packages, and re-pack the contents and send them overseas somewhere, and again, it's easy money.

Until the Secret Service shows up, that is, and explains that the money and/ or the goods have been obtained illegally, and you are now in a spot of bother.

It's called being a mule, and such pitches are both more common and more tempting in these difficult finanacial times.

Bottom line is that, even on the Internet, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Keep safe folks,
