>> Hello -

>> This is NOT a scam. It is some work initially, and the waiting for

>> means I've earned $140. And yes, it does show up in Paypal as soon as your

>> *real* money, in Method 2. After all, you can't help your referrals go
>> green if you don't know how it works. There are more levels than 1 and 2
>> but I haven't gotten there yet. It's win-win, everyone gets paid.
>> Just read, pay attention, stay on top of the offers you accept, and
>> you will be fine. It's really quite easy. It's not FUN and it's not
>> thousands of dollars in an hour, but it is NOT a scam. You can get through
>> method one in 2 weeks if you work at it; I am already well on my way, and
>> I have the Paypal payments to prove it.
>> I hope people will give it a shot if 1-3 hours per day sounds
>> reasonable enough to them, because people can and do make a few thousand
>> per month doing this in Method 2.
I still can't believe this is legal. Amber, YOU are scamming the companies because you are signing up for business offers you have no intention of keeping. In other words, you are telling lies every time you fill out a form indicating that you want what the business has to offer. All you really want is the incentive. Your full stated intention is to take the money and run. While it may be true that you are not being scammed, you are doing a fine job of scamming honest businesses every time you work this program. As far as ethics goes, Project Payday is Positively Putrid. You and everybody else would scream scam and rip-off if someone did this to you, but you are quite happy - even bragging about it - when you do it to others.
Think about it.

| 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!!).
