Scam!!! Dec 21, 2011

Wow! It's incredible what I hear. about this company or scam ... I've found just the net and even wanted such a job ... so simple ... but still so easy to take your good money ... I need money for college, taxes etc ... They say Romans needed. But even before I saw your post. And the guy in India has helped me enormously. As he happened not even seen the money ... sucks ... The irony is that I was going to pay that money these days, so thank you very much for all that you have warned me.
