Get Spammed For Fun And (No) Profit

from the have-fun-with-it dept

ZaneK writes Email Battles examines the underbelly of the Get-Paid-To-Read-Email (GPTRE) biz. If you’re not yet sick of GPTRE schemes, you probably don’t spend much time on the web. They’re like today’s version of the work-at-home pitches that cluttered the classified ads of yesteryear. In fact, Email Battles found that many GPTRE schemes have more in common with the old classifieds than you may think, including lousy (non-existent) payouts” Would have been nice if they had gone into a bit more detail about how the scams work, but it’s pretty much as you’d expect (i.e., you’re not going to get any money).
