looks like someone wants to start a selling site, maybe, or just take your money every month.

I got a message on one of my accounts.  But then I get spam to all three of my email accounts too.  I figure it's just part of being online.  I delete 'em.

Heck, I've even gotten spam as cell phone texts!  That, I think, is obnoxious.  They don't know what my plan is and could be actually costing me money.  Does that crap actually ever work?

Sadly, it works well enough that the perpetrators make a lot of money even with the small % of returns from their attempts.  >:(
