I as many others got sucked into believing the Popularlink stock offer was legitimate. What a major lie! These companies ought to be strung up! People took a lot of their valuable time trying to take advantage of an offer that sounded like an honest deal. It made us all out to be a bunch of fools with family and friends and them mad at us for trying to convince them to sign up and taking up their time. How can these companies get away with this kind of crap? Does anyone else care to stop these kinds of dishonest, selfish people? I say start making examples of them and we wouldn't have this kind of trash in the world.
Speaking of, that's what I bought into: 8 shares of trash!!!
