Next time before you forward emails to your friends, please take a minute to check for the authenticity of it. (thats what these search Engines are for! )
 well friends its MONEY another thing we have to keep in mind is, its not GIVEN AWAY, FREELY !
 
P.S: I usually reply with these links when ever i get these emails. and ask them to forward to the people where it came from so as to hit the source, but people are not usually as enthusiastic about it as they initially were, thats the reason why i’m taking this initiation.
 
One more thing i want to ask those who said they got their checks cashed. could we please see those checks.
