Same here! I thought it was just me that was special.

They asked for my social security number, birth day, credit card number, address, and a few other items, but for $500,000, I'll give them whatever they ask for!

Quick, send them your bank account info so they can deposit the money directly.

well, i'm sort of OCD so i've created folders for most of my email and categorize them by potential benefit and relevance. this one went in the same folder as those that contain advice from my brother-in-law and those "can't miss" recomendations from my stock broker...

I've done very well on any "can't miss" offers from my broker. Well usually they have one way of missing. They are always IPOs and it does depend on him getting any shares to place. Heck I did well on his one Risky IPO, up 10-20% right away and no bounce down.

I've done pretty well, if I can say so myself, investing in old Spanish coins.

For a small upfront fee I can hook you up!

Send me a PM and I'll share JoeBob and my "Secrets to Wealth Through Real Dollars" captured from the deepest, darkest parts of the the Old Spanish Main.

funny you should mention that.

i didn't invest in old Spanish coins, but about twelve years ago i did toss some money into a bunch of U.S twenty dollar gold pieces. they didn't have much numismatic value, just about 10% above the intrinsic gold value. (i think i just wanted to fondle them. which i've since done. and now are now in my sisters safety deposit box.)

anyway, you know what happened to the price of gold. it's taken twelve years now for my stock portfolio to double , the gold has increased five fold in the same time. oh well, i suppose i could have invested in real estate and be REALLY pissed at myself.

Look, it's not too late. The gold itself is valuable (Mr. Markets sez $10,000 an ounce but that's crazy talk) but this stuff is HISTORY!
