Townhall Messages

I signed myself up for a number of different emailings from a number of conservative groups (someone has also signed me up to a few as well–like Focus on the Family.  Now I wonder who would do that???).  One of them is Town Hall.  Most of these mailings are harmless junk.  But occasionally they send out messages that I find disturbing.  The one from today has this message:

Dear Kevin Kaatz,

I’m going to tell you something, but you must promise to keep it quiet…

You have to understand that the ‘elite’ would not be at all happy with me if they knew what I was about to tell you. That’s why we have to tread carefully.

You see, while most people are paying attention to the stock market, the banks, brokerages and big institutions have their money somewhere else…. what I call the hidden money mountain.

It’s a pile of cash that’s 30 times bigger than the stock market!

And if you get into this market, you’ll have a shot taking money away from them!

All you have to know is the insider’s code (which I’ll tell you) and you could make an extra $6,000 every single month.

Just read our special report below to find out more.

Sincerely,

MaryEllen Tribby
Publisher, Early To Rise

 

Why is this disturbing?  Because it is trying to trick innocent people into doing something they shouldn’t do.  It is also disturbing because Ms. Tribby wants to make sure that the ‘elite’ doesn’t find out about the fact that she knows where to get 30 times more money than the stock market–and she can provide you with the code.  I don’t know who this MaryEllen Tribby is, but I would bet that it isn’t just the ‘elite’ who are concerned with the stock market, the banks and so on.  Everyone is affected by this economy.  What MaryEllen Tribby is doing is trying to get her piece of the action.  The link that is provided takes you to yet another ‘secret’ message she wants to tell you.  You then have to sign up for her ‘free’ subscription newsletter.  I wonder how many people are doing this out of desperation?  Does anyone at TownHall care about what these messages are doing to people?  Apparently not.

    Dear Kevin Kaatz,
     
    I am sure you have received by now a letter from one MaryEllen Tribby of Early to Rise telling you all about this mountain of cash she knows you can get your hands on.  I do hope she has not duped you into this scam.  As everyone knows there is no such thing as a mountain of cash because, if there were it would be crawling with greasy pawed congressmen.
     
    However Mr. Kaatz, we here at Pickyourhole Inc. are very pleased to announce that for a very limited time we are allowing a hard working American such as yourself to get in on the ground floor of our newest gold mine located in the beautiful Sonoran Desert of Arizona.  Our assays show that in all probability this is the purest vein of gold ore ever found in the world.  Just think Mr. Kaatz for a small investment fee you could be laying back on a yacht in the bay entertaining all your friends while the money rolls into your bank account.
     
    As I said Mr. Kaatz this is a limited time offer so you need to act fast.  You should call our office immediately dont waste time thinking about it.  For a small investment fee of $1500.00 you will be set for life. Yes, set for life never have to work again.
     
    Pick up that phone and call 1-800-ubenscrewed and talk to our CFO  Ms Polly Digger.  All we need is your bank information and we can get the proceeds of this once in a life time offer rolling into you.

    Ugh, this is why I don\’t bother signing up for newsletters, daily updates, etc. from a website LOL
     
    And that\’s pretty shady that they\’re leading their readers to a silly scam like that.

    Hey GLB!  I know I shouldn\’t sign up for crap like this, but sometimes it is interesting.  And in the past couple of days they have sent out very similar crap to what I posted about.
