I just got some unexpected cash for mthis placet hat I totally blew off as a scam. It is wonderful to be pleasantly surprised and completely wrong. It's not hundreds of dollars but pays for a few supplies that I thought I was goign to have to hold off on buying! When were you last pleasantly surprised by something you thought was a scam?

I'll give it thought. Like I said...I am trying to build points for banner exposures so anything will help!

Never. I am too wary about participating in anything I feel may be a scam. I have been guilty of deleting legitimate items because I was too cautious.

Its always great getting unexpected cash. I have not had such experience, but my girlfriend told me earlier today she got a call from a company saying they had some money for her, and she thought it was a scam. It turned out it was not a scam, and she did receive the money.

Well, I KTHXBYE European Union in Battlefield 2. I got so good of a score. EA sent me a EA Legionaire Account upgrade. I thought it was weird. it wasn't! YAY! My battlefield 2 account was a legionaire! it now has glitter and sparkles in my profile! yay! I got tons of awards playing as United States Middle Coaltion, Middle Eastern Coalition, People's Liberation Army.

This situation wasn't a scam but it was a risk. I live in a remote village and I'm having a problem with my drains. I sent away for a product to help clear the problem. I spoke at length to the young lady on the phone and explained my problem and she said I need to buy 40litres for $200. That was a bit of a shock but I paid, the stuff arrived and I used it dilligently for 3 months ringing them a couple of times to report progress. The bottom line is I still had the problem and they refunded $150.00. I was so surprised because I used all the product...the fault is with my drainage not their product.

Actually, mylot was the last time this happened to me! I really wanted a way to make a little extra money, but I also wanted something that would be fun to do. I thought "Surely they're not really going to pay me for talking on a forum" and boy was I surprised! Could you message me the link for the new thing you're doing please? I'd really appreciate it!

Wow that is great. If it is something that works and you want to get referals, I would be willing to give it a try. I will send you a private message and see if it is ok.
