It wasn't good enough to send me one e-mail....he sent me six. I get at least one of these types of e-mails a week. It's kinda like drugs.... it's a know fact when heroin gets scarce, crime on the streets increases. When the economy tanks....everyone is trying to scam you.

Me....I've been selling books. I blogged earlier about how I cleaned out my stash of books. Most of the travel books, novels, non-fiction books I donated to the local library. They have quarterly sales and sell the books to benefit the library. But the art/craft books I decided to put up for sale on Amazon. Most don't go for a whole lot...but it's a small way to make some money....of course to buy more books. I've sold 12 books and made $120. Who knew they would sell that well. It has been a pain always running to the post office to send the books out. But I'm glad other people are getting use of the books.

I've also received many of those kinds of emails. I think I also received one from Kofi Anan. But I have learned how to avoid being a scam victim. You may want to check tips at www.boomeryearbook.com or www.boomeryearbook09.blogspot.com.

What I want to know is how you can possibly get by on only $10,000 / day? You ARE taking the money, right? ;-)
