Fake $100 bill....

Twice over the past few months, I've received a downsized, folded, fake $100 bill (it looks so real, folded) with a sticky note telling me that this works and signed a first name; no return address. On the back of the 'bill' there's a website. It IS cash gifting and the website is interesting.

I'm NOT tempted to join, as the lowest entry is $500. Any input from others who've received this in the mail?

I've been burned so many times and have NOT participated in ANY Internet programs now for over 4 years.

I'm interested in what makes this one any different than the rest. THANKS!

I'd like to know what the website is so that I can work on shutting them down for mail fraud, in addition to the illegal gifting.

Boris, you don't have to tell me. I KNOW, I KNOW....

Prof., You are wasting your time as the website I could send is just some poor sap who got taken in. You will never pin down the perpetrator; they cover their tracks too well.

I wouldn't be so sure, Trinket... I'm pretty good at tracking these folks down.
