What I don't understand is why these people keep doing this stuff. I've had one of my emails jacked and a couple of friends have had theirs jacked as well. The person doing it sends out an email to all your contacts selling some odd product.

Then of course there is this type of garbage marketing going on here at BN and other forums.

What I don't get, are these people actually making any money with this stuf? Seems they would have to be. Either that or they simply have no brains to work with?

I have pretty much stopped excepting friend request on FB and Linked In just because of such B.S.

I have even had some marketers hit me up on you tube. I've blocked many people on Linked In and You Tube.

Guess some folk will never learn. :roll:

Looks like the refugee issue was a few years ago and no mention of a garden anywhere. I figured it was pure spam.

Strange thing is the same thing was going around to different forums a couple years ago. I just wonder how big of a garden you can build for 500k. I think that might be a farm lol


I don't know who would fall for such a poor marketing technique. It just really pisses me off for someone to friend me up then spam me... What a piece of work.

I cannot speak to the issue of the intent of the message you got here, but I am an affiliate of Flixs Now, mainly because I was leaving Netfix and an associate sent me info on Flixs Now where I can get DVD's for $25 per year. The site seems legit.

Also, I have seen post on Face Book asking for support for one or another organization at some time or other.

I don't mind helping others but personally I give to my church and organizations that I have knowledge of.

Cause you never know, so, do your home work and you might want to tread lightly, know what I mean?. ;)


I have no interest or desire to find out about this company. My post is about spamming. I guess I should be more clear next time.

Thanks for the feedback...
