Recently I watched a report in TV, it looks like some people are becoming very rich through simple methods. Thought it might be interesting. A guy hosts a number of sites, all pretend to offer free stuff. As example one site is a portal to connect people together for driving partnership (so one guy with car splits his fuel bill by taking a few others nearby to work, etc) Another site offers free downloads, the next one music samples and similar crap. They all have a small sidenode, or a part in their legal terms that sets a monthly fee of 10-100$, to be paid for 12 months upfront. (or similar) The people sign up for the "free" service and soon receive a bill for the year membership. The company itself can not be reached by phone or at the address, so they can only pay or ignore it. If they ignore it they receive a letter from a lawyer telling them to pay now + the fee of the lawyer or face a lawsuit. Well guess many heard about such methods already. The most interesting part was when the reporters went to the bank of the "company" and asked them why they help them get their money. The bank was pissed too but can't do stuff as the lawyer sued them to keep the account open. That bank manager told the reporters that about 20,000 Euro are paid from 200-300 people daily to this account. So they receive 20k Euro per day for all the bills they write, that's a million Dollar per month. Not the right thing for me, I don't like to rip people that off. But interesting for sure, well and somewhat sad to see how easy it is to make so much money.
