There's old school networking and there's new school Internet Network marketing. There's collecting and sitting on your FAT arse and there's hustling and utilizing the power of MLM which is a legitimate business model to get the coins at below spot price thru referrals. Once again people its a coin club where you have to refer members it is not a get rich quick scheme by any means. But if you are an Internet Marketing Genius and a fan of affiliate programs you can actually get coins at below spot price. This is what the confusion is about. If you are NOT into marketing think you can just sit back and watch the money roll in, and you are stuck in old school MLM 1992 practices this isnt gonna work for ya! Angel I suggest learning some basic SEO techniques to help get yr silver snowball msge. out there as well. Good luck from a fellow silversnowball member who got 7 American Eagle coins this month and only paid for 1!

| 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.

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!!).
