In my search I found, Mate1.com Intimate Dating Service. It said something like, Earn a extra 100.00 a week being a online Ambassador just answering e-mails from the comfort of your home.
I thought ok I can do that and the add said it would take only a few hours a day. Hmmmm. 2 hours a day for a hundred a week ok I'll do that.
This is how I thought it was suppose to work, Guys see my profile, send me mail. I reply within 48 hrs and I get paid 100.00 A week. This is how it was explained to me. Below is the actual letter I recieved from mate 1

Online Ambassador Guidelines
Last updated 12/15/04
Here's a quick guide to properly handling situations that may arisewhile you are responding to email from Mate 1 members. Please read them carefully.
1. We do not recommend that you mention your Online Ambassador status unless you are asked. However, you must answer honestly if asked.
If someone asks any of the following questions:
Q: Do you work for Mate1?
Q: What does "OA" stand for?
Q: What is an Online Ambassador?
Answer something like this:
I was a member of Mate 1 and they chose me to be an online ambassador (that's what that OA logo on my profile means). I spend a couple of hours online every day emailing other members and making them feel welcome.
2. You are expected to be yourself, natural and casual, in your replies. If someone writes something that offends you, you are free to tell them what you think.
3. If someone asks for your personal email address, your personal instant messenger handle or any other personal contact info off the site, you should tell them that you feel more comfortable corresponding on the site.
4. You are not expected to communicate with anyone by Mate 1 instant messenger, but you are free to do so if you wish.
5. If you receive more than one message from the same member in between times that you log in to respond, you are only responsible for answering their most recent email.
Now what they didnt tell me was that They would send out an email addressed from me to ALL of the males and lesbian females on the site telling them that I liked their profile, That I wanted to correspond with them and to get back with me by of coarse sendind me an email.
LOL... Do you know how many e-mails I got in one day? about 500 Men who were 65 years old were flattered that I, (really Mate 1) had sent them a letter and that I, (really mate 1) wanted to correspond with them. Ya see men have to pay high prices to mate 1 to be a Member.
Mate one gives them a trial and then ropes them in with the, "Online Ambassador girls" The guys think, WOW Im gonna meet this girl, This girl is interested in me and I cant lose contact with her so Id better get a membership.
The online ambassador girls are thinking wow all I have to do is answer emails from guys who are genuinly interested in me and I get paid for it! WRONG!!!
These people are not only scamming guys who are lonely but women too who are trying to make money from home. There is no way that someone can get to all those emails in 48 hours or less NOT unless you live on the computer and Even then I dont think that you can do it. Even if you copy and pasted a generic letter to all 500 in a day you couldnt do it. Why???
Because while you are on the site people can see when you are there and they can instant message you. So you get BOMBARDED with instant mesages, You get BOMBARDED with mail and then the site gets real slow and your computer freezes on the site. so how are you suppose to get to the email??? You have to keep logging off and logging back in which takes even more time. Its a scam guys.
None of these girls want to talk to you. They didnt send you the email. Mate 1 sent it on their (Online Ambassadors) behalf and without them even realizing it. I dont think they even plan to pay people a hundred a week. They just let them anwser as much email as possilbe, let them give up and move on to the next sucker. That way the site is always in supply of fresh pretty faces sending out massive emails to lonely men who think they just got real lucky!
Wow what a bunch of shi!
