Sounds like she was mad right? My Reply: Hi Stephanie, Interesting question so I guess you deserve an interesting and truthful reply. First, This isn't identity theft at all. I find your lack of knowledge what ID theft is shocking. Please research that subject so that you may further protect yourself. For the record, what you are really seeing a creative way to get someone like yourself interested in signing up for what is called a 'CPA offer' Second, major corporations pay people to get them leads. They call us online marketers or internet marketers. (I.E. it's a real job and a tough one at that.) Third, while I understand your desire to report these threads, the fact remains that it is simply too easy to get leads this way. Really all you are doing is costing me less than .20 cents to hire someone (usually in india) to re-post them for me. Can't you see how we are helping the global economy?! On average, someone (me) makes $300-$600 a day just by forwarding people (you) to a company as a lead. It is only one of many ads we market and creative ways we market them. You got to admit it's pretty sweet or else you wouldn't have replied to begin with, right? The truth is, while at times, I do dislike some of these methods myself, they are completely legal. some would say immoral. Others confuse the two or think they are synonymous. (They aren't) Yet, in times like these, one can put aside his moral beliefs in the pursuit of finical gain. I Have! You seem like a nice smart girl, and this is the first time I've ever 'broke character' to talk directly to someone. If you like to learn more about marketing, please ask me about the best site to learn! I'll be glad to share it with you so you can create an account, and post this email there. It will let people know you've been sent there by one of us, and you can read and learn! Good luck! (P.S. hope you do find what you were looking for by the way. Ignore offers to good to be true. That's probably just me or a friend anyhow trying to make some cash off of your stupidity!) Edit: Scheme Is what I meant to say in the title. I'm retarded. Leave my short bus alone.
