Running out of notches in the belt, eh?

EDIT: Ah, now I get it! It is all a big conspiracy by AOL's HR department. :thumbsup:
AOL has been getting a bad rap thanks to a few bad apples in the customer service department, but for some strange reason, that nobody has been able to figure out, it has had trouble terminating their employment. They probably tried assassination already, but it turned out that the bad apple being dead doesn't isn't enough reason to get AOL out of the the contract. So now they are sending them out to dig up a fortune in hops that they will skip work and retire to a tropical island.

Hi all I am new to posting but I follow these forums in the RSS feed.

I actually live in Medfield, MA where the alleged spammer buried his money. It is all over the local news. This is one of the larger things that has happened to this town.

Medfield is a wealthy suburb of Boston with only 12,000 people and absolutely nothing goes on. The only thing that baffles me is how he can make $600,000 a month sending spam emails.

I will hopefully be posting here more.
See you around,

companies pay for "marketing" and they dont care how they get it. If you noticed most of the companies involved are rather murkey themselves. Think Internet Porn, overseas "pharmacies", and the like. But this is outragous. A metal detecor and one guy would know within a day if anything was burried in their yard.
