first of all, if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is...you're not going to be the next overnite millionaire. second, before you commit to a program, do a search on them. if thy've scammed people before, sombody wrote something about it. third, you can download a free software program called "McAfee SiteAdvisor" it's a little box that sits on your browser. it's usually green, but if you go to a known bad site, or a site that sends out a lot of spam emails, it will turn red and tell you what's wrong with that site. most important, use common sense and you should be alright. good luck

PayPal has a free program that identifies 'bad' sites too. I'm thinking of downloading it since PayPal has such a good reputation and unequaled security level.
