Lesson learned! Thanks for this string and for the opinions posted. I must be on every home business opp mailing list in the nation, because I have received all of the above and tons more. And, although they contain lots of great health tips, the "natural cures" books are just a forum for Kevin T.'s political views/rants/raves. And, because he is obviously a card toting member, then comes the "you are selected" for membership in neotech, which delivers an unbelieveable mountain of anti-government hate mongering persuasion materials. Each mailing contains the "complete" package, until the next persuasion letter arrives with a request for more money for additional vitally important materials. And, each "level" promises untold wealth and membership in an exclusive secret society that supposedly rules the world! They don't seem to mind stooping to scamming us "ordinary" folks, though. Ha! As for a connection between the different scams being mailed out, I think it is only the mailing lists of home business seekers that they all have access to and purchase. So, like one of the other posts here, I recycle all 15 pages of each one of these "offers" to light my BBQ grill with. Check each of these offers online with your fellow seekers and you can't be taken! Ya'll, be smart, and beware! Rots 'o' ruck!!

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
