This e-mail came yesterday Sept 11 from a friend in Jamaica. It said that something happened to her that changed her life and made he very happy. Below was a link that I opened exceptionally, because I usually don't do that. It opened on a page of Online Income Solution. This page related how it had changed the life of somebody called Parker. Then it called on the reader to become a member so that he/she too can becoming to make money on-line. To continue I had to accept to make a payment of $19.97. Then, further on it again requested a payment of $7.97 that I made by giving credit card info etc. After becoming a member I had to enroll to build a website. Here again there was a request to get the Pro package with a further payment which I declined. On and on it went and as I declined to accept various request in building this web page. the whole thing aborted.
Now I was having doubts. So, I wrote my friend, using the e-mail I had received the following:
"Did you send this e-mail? If so did you real enroll in this? Are you making money?". She wrote back the next day, saying that her computer had been out of commission for 6 weeks due to a virus or lightning. This means that she did not send that e-mail with the link. So the question is: Is is it a scam?
This morning, I also received a phone call from a women who said she was calling for Income Online, because I supposedly had shown interest in it. I told I had completed registration and had made two payments. She said that I was not registered with Income Online. I also told her that I was not happy and that could she refund the payments. She repeated that I was not registered with her company. I asked her how then did she have mi name. She would not answer that and hung up on me.
