Yes there are REAL work from home deals out there. There are real data entry and medical billing firms out there that will pay you real money for your time and effort. However, this and its clones ain't them. Visit the following links from the Federal Trade Commission and the Better Business Bureau for more information. But the bottom line is this. If they want you to pay for a 'Starter Kit' or a 'Data Entry Program' guess what they are actually selling? And inquire about how much data you will have to enter to earn just a hundred dollars a week. That's all you'll need to hear to make up your mind.
Another interesting fact, in the US, these outfits use couriers and UPS and FedEx to deliver whatever good you do get... to avoid complications with people like the US POSTAL INSPECTORS who do not find these types of deals very funny at all.
The best thing to do with this email is..... delete it.
