Hai all

Just received a phone call from a Canadian Company specialised in promoting cds (of some famous artists). They asked me to invest in their company since it is so "profitable"...
They would send me a "free" information package via fax.
I refused of course (and since when do translators have the money to buy lots of shares... if you do please let me know how you did it... just joking!).
But I suddenly realised hearing something about a scam: so called companies sending a huge package over fax and then you have to pay for it.
Just thought I would let you all know -:))

Thank you Channa! Jul 13, 2005

Although I would definitely not have money to buy (lots of) shares like you.

But you are right, they might want to stick you with a bill for receiving faxed documentation. Scary, isn' t it, so many of these folks these days trying to con you.
