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.

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.
