Since we can’t all win the lottery…(2 min Read) –

Hey there… Remember when you where a kid? You had no fears? Then as you grew older things and circumstances climbed into your head and you simply stopped dreaming? Don’t worry, you are not alone.. I was in the same position after I lost all that I had worked for and I found myself at the age of 44 not knowing where to turn… I really was hoping I would WIN THE Lottery! Well then that would save my bacon sure would! Okay, get to the point already you are thinking right? Okay, here’s the GOOD NEWS: We are forming a Group of Fearless People and you really want to check this out.. Last night one of my good friends hosted a zoom meeting, sort of a Hangout where we shared the exact steps on how to create $250 in 72 hours.. (a Private Meeting with 89 Folks in attendance!) So I guess you could say, I am giving you an inside view so to speak.. Curious? Please go to my site here: I really know you have been told this before, but this is way different then anything I have been involved in. Questions? Please reply and I can send you the replay. Be sure when you sign up it says my name: Mary Strater With Gratitude, Mary PO Box 1075 Seaford Delaware 19973 USA To unsubscribe or change subscriber options, visit: Mary Strater –

How to check if you received a scam email

  1. Google the details.

    Do a Google search for the persons name/company name that the email has come from.

  2. Confirm the details.

    Visit their website and look for a phone number or email address. Search for the website yourself. Do not assume the details in the email are valid.

  3. Confirm using the information you have found

    Using the details you have researched, call or email the business and ask them to verify the information within the email.

  4. Check if the email has been sent to multiple people

    Google snippets of the email text to see if the same format has been used in the past. eg “Army officer from Syria but now living with the United Nations on asylum”
