This section provides links to VITAL information about email scams of all kinds. People who forward emails like these cause SERIOUS harm to the internet by clogging the system and making it slow, and very aggravating. Most particularly, I am urped by the emails that talk about an email tracking system. There is NO SUCH THING! We don't have the technology to do that! (I'm glad, because I like my privacy!) PLEASE: if you get one of these, please do NOT forward it to me or anybody else. They are HOAXES!

There is NO SUCH THING as an email tracking program If you forward this one, you are displaying ignorance and gullibility. You also aggravate the heck out of me!
A warning about a bill being considered by Congress to charge 5 per email is also a hoax: it would require an email tracking program. I repeat: there is NO SUCH THING.

How about those unfortunate women in Afghanistan? The story about them is true; the email address has long since been turned off because they were flooded with emails. Sending it on is an exercise in futility, and further clogs the internet. Email petitions in general are worse than useless; they siphon off valuable concern into a direction where all it will do is to clog the internet. UPDATE! The good news is that because of U.S. action in Afghanistan, the situation there is much improved.

Please note: if you get an email asking you to help transfer large sums of money out of any country in Africa, if you will just provide them with information about your bank account, don't bite! They'll transfer large sums of money, all right: right OUT of your bank account and into theirs. They'll also ask you for small sums of money to bribe a local official or otherwise expedite the transfer. As soon as you start to question, they vanish. This hoax is decades old; just a variation on the theme of people claiming to investigate bank fraud, asking little old ladies on pensions for a checking or savings account number so they can track the persons engaged in the fraud, and then emptying their bank account. The usual rule applies: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

What's Wrong With Multi-Level Marketing? There are plenty of links to other good information. Multi-Level Marketing has a flawed business model. Either you will not even make minimum wage, or you will make money by taking advantage of other people who do not even make minimum wage. If any E-company you want to do business with has an affiliate program, check to see if it allows you to sign up other people (downline). If it does, it's MLM. Run! If you stay, you'll only waste valuable personal resources and you will not experience any gain.
