In Response To: Gene Truman's Data Money Online (Louise Charrette)
Wow. And to think, I almost just signed up for this scam. Thanks for posting, everyone! This is EXACTLY what I needed to find out...whether or not this was legit.
>> I joined this data entry program a couple of weeks ago. The job is so
>> easy to do (cut and paste ads) with your own Clickbank URL. The promise is
>> that I would get paid an average of $15. per ad I processed. Wow! I
>> thought. So I processed 450 ads (yes, that's right four hundred and fifty
>> ads - six to seven hours of work) in all the categories and sub-categories
>> for them. In two weeks, my Clickbank account shows a wooooping $4.10!
>> According to their claim on their web page www.datamoneyonline.com, I

>> I am still in contact with them with questions and awaiting answers.
>> Their charge for this great opportunity is ONLY $197. one time payment.
>> "If you make no money, we don't process the payment."
>> I have read in other scam blogs that they deposit $4. and some cents

| 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!!).
