I just had my Dad call me about this great offer. I read it and was shocked as to how real it looked, but quickly realized it’s a scam, legal or not, it’s still a scam.
For those of you who may mistake a paid newspaper “Advertisement” as a legitimate article, please read this article on a legal SCAM that is periodically published in noteable newspapers to look like a real deal, when it’s actually a paid advertisement that is trying to snag you in to signing up for a “free Armored Safe” but it’s really a come on to get involved in multiple payments for a handful of coins that are not worth the final payments you will be dishing out. http://www.cointalk.com/t43953/
The Washington Post has this in the Style section on page C9 of todays paper (9/21/09). The “first installment is as little as $149.” What do you mean FIRST INSTALLMENT and as LITTLE AS?
For what it’s worth, I intend to contact the Editor and complain of their unethical advertising and post this complaint online for others to view.
EGADS! BURN THE PAPER AND RUN AWAY!
