>> Here are the MMA sales figures for 2009:
>> Jan 3,473
>> Feb 2,177
>> Mar 2,428
>> Apr 2,058
>> May 1,353
>> Jun 1,092
>> Jul 849
It's still rather scarey that more than 13-thousand people were sucked into paying so much money for something they can set up on their own.
If one has a hard time making those extra payments on principal in order to pay off their mortgage in half the time, where...pray tell...do they find the Three Thousand-Five-Hundered Dollars to hook up with these jokers?
On top of that, they're still gonna have to come up with the extra principal payments.
Sue, or whatever the person's actual name might be, sounded so proud of her product and confident that folks would keep falling for..er..buying it.
Who knows? There may be hope for us, yet:o)

| 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!!).
