THE SIMPLEIST LEGAL WAY TO MAKE MONEY ON THE NET... (four simple steps) I will not waste your time explaining how the money making process works because you are all intelligent people and can figure it our for yourselves. As for the legal aspect, you are providing a good (as will be explained later) and therefore accepting currency in return for that good is perfectly legal no matter what country you are in. This does work (only one person has to respond for you to make your money back and everything else is gravy as they say) so have fun with it and make your pictures interesting (remember that many people have probably not seen the geography of the area you are from). STEP 1: On a letter sized piece of paper write the following: "Please e-mail me the digital photograph at (enter your e- mail here). Enclosed is the $5.00 US fee for the picture" STEP 2: Fold a $5.00 US bill into the paper (to hide the bill and prevent mail theft) and mail it to the address below: M. Hunt M.A. Box 34074 P55, 1610-37 Street S.W. Calgary, Alberta Canada T3C3W0 STEP 3: Replace the address above with your own address and post this message (saved as a text file) on as many newsgroups as possible using "postxpert" found at <http://www.download.com>. Remember, the more newsgroups, etc. you post to, the more people that will be exposed to the opportunity. STEP 4: When you get mail (with the enclosed fee) requesting the picture, send a picture in .jpeg format (taken by you to keep it legal as far as copyright laws are concerned) to the enclosed e-mail address along with the following message: "Here is the picture you ordered for the fee of $5.00 US" KEEPING IT LEGAL: 1. Make sure the picture you send was taken by you so as not to infringe on copyright laws. The picture can be of anything (i.e. a pet, landscape, friend, etc.) but keep it clean cause there are underage people on the newsgroups. 2. Keep a copy of the sent e-mail (i.e. the receipt) and the addresses of the people you receive the fee and request from as your copy of the transaction. 3. You may want to claim the money you make as income so as not to get in trouble with the income tax agency of your country. COMMON CONCERNS: 4. You may be weary of posting your address all over the internet so rent a post office box for about 30 cents a day and use that address instead. 5. You may not want to give out your e-mail address to strangers so set up a temporary one just for these sorts of things with hotmail or another free service like that. 6. You may not want to post your name all over the internet so just use your first initial or create a pseudonym and use that. 7. This is legal as long as you follow the instructions and treat it like a real business (i.e. keep track of transactions and be honest). You can check the appropriate websites in your country and confirm it for yourself.
