Not just that, but a bombed-out-truck of a newlywed, whose wedding gifts they are stealing.  Definitely winners.

The secret millionaire society is getting a little short on funds, and needs to sell a bunch of personal info.

Apparently millionaires don't need spell check.

I'm always fascinated by these things and love to see if I can find out what they are about. The "secret millionaire society" is promoting something called "binary options."

Investor Alert: Binary Options and Fraud.  I'm having trouble finding a good, simple explanation. From Wikipedia "In finance, an option is a contract which gives the buyer (the owner) the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell an underlying asset or instrument at a specified strike price on or before a specified date." and "In finance, a binary option is a type of option where the payoff is either some fixed amount of some asset or nothing at all."

Long story short--unless you are very experienced and know what you are doing, it's hard to make money with this legitimately. There are, unfortunately, a lot of scammy brokers who are happy to take advantage of people's ignorance. As one honest web site puts it
Quote
Because to be honest binary options is first of all about the fun of trading. If you make money from it even better but do not except to become a millionaire next week. Maybe you can make some money like a few thousand dollars per month if you are very good at predicting short-term market movements.

I've just won $40 million in an Oz Powerball lotto draw that the government entered me in on my behalf!

I had NO idea the Mad Monk was so kind! From his press releases of late, you'd expect him to hate the unemployed.

All I have to provide is my life information up to and including the souls of my children.

I wonder if they'll accept two Rottweilers (the Demon Twins) instead?

Good news! Your insurance company says they'll cover you. Unfortunately, they also say it will be with dirt.

Giving scammers the souls of your demon rottweilers seems rather mean, but appropriate.  ;D  I have this mental image of some poor thing backed into the corner of their office by your dogs, screaming "She said she was sending her kids! I swear!"
You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

Just got this one:

Gillian & Adrian Bayford are giving you part of their winnings as charity Please respond to this message with your Name, Address and Phone number.

It came from an email address that is "Walker, Rachel - (rwalker2)  (rwalker2@email.arizona.edu)". So is this a scammer trying to make it look like it's a legit address, or someone so stupid as to send an email like this from an actual address. The @email.arizona.edu would be a CatMail address from the University of Arizona. I think I'll be contacting them through their support service  >:D
