    Hi Mr. Pauldeeds and my dear fellow hubbers ,

    I found a great scam hub <snipped link>
    today which is taking people to this page
    <snipped link>

    it says that anyone can make money online by just sending cash in courier mails. The initial start-up investment is claimed to be 6600 dollars and earnnig potential is 30000 dollars per month,,,,,, wow what a great scam and the hubscore for this filthy rich scam hubpage is 90.

    I visited this hubpage today and found a lot of reviews on google stating these sites are scam.

    Results 1 - 10 of about 95 for extremelyfastcash scam. (0.15 seconds)

    and

    Results 1 - 10 of about 72 for toodamneasy.com scam. (0.18 seconds)

    read here. these lines have been taken from:

    ILLEGAL GIFTING PYRAMID – NUTTY – LEARNING LESSON ONLY!

    2 Feb 2006 --  Download this 14 page PDF as a LEARNING LESSON only!  This scam named  ecosov.800 has more pure b.s. in it than I have ever seen in a Gifting Scam (that sends so many people to jail)!  This probably sets a record for complexity of a gifting scam (yes they are illegal).  Ed. Note:  Do not under any circumstances pick up the phone or send a cent to these crooks!  Learning Lesson ONLY!

    <snipped link>

    I request senior hubbers and administrator to have a look on this hubpage and take the necessary action, as this page will create a lot of nuisance on the net and can send people to jail as described by the MLM WATCHDOG REVIEW above.

    Looking forward to your action on this.

    Thanks,

    soni2006

    great spot, still can't believe with the amounts of litrature out there about these things people still fall for them. I think with todays economy it will only get worse as people get more and more desperate. Keep up good work and we can all learn a message if we spot them, name and shame, seems to get rid of them quickly smile
