Miscellaneous  Money Schemes
Example -
Mining Gold Corporation,
 Shawn Casey, http://www.goldwares.com/QSS/
"I was dared to do this on St. Patrick's Day, and everyone is telling me that I'm an insane millionaire who must have gone absolutely crazy for doing this today"

Did you receive an email from "Shawn Casey" at "Mining Gold Corporation" who  says

"I was dared to do this on St. Patrick's Day, and everyone is telling me that I'm an insane millionaire who must have gone absolutely crazy for doing this today, especially on St. Patrick's Day, but I don't care anymore because I think it's just the right thing to do. Okay, let me catch my breathe while I type this," 

This one is another of the schemes with loads of exaggerations. The website says:

"Internet Millionaire Shawn Casey is giving away his $497 "Internet Business-In-A-Box" - a multi-media training course that reveals the fastest way to make a fortune on the Internet in the next 60 days!

Basically this is just a junk email hawking a load of crap. The links all redirect the visitor to http://www.goldwares.com/QSS/.  You would do best to simply delete the email.  Unless of course, you believe in the old adage "a fool and his money are soon separated", and you wish to play the part of the fool.

Follow this link to a report of the scam from a victim.  Another blogger points out that Gmail and Firefox consistently identify emails from Shawn Casey as spam. Now there's an editorial for you!

Meanwhile, just to prove that you can't believe everything you see on the internet, a number of sycophantic toadies claiming to expose scams are touting Shawn Casey, saying how wonderful his so-called "products" are; see these links:

Another old expression applies here" If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.  Avoid get-rich schemes and look for realistic, common-sense ways to earn a living.  Leave to schemes and scams to idiots.
