Pay To Be On Scam Reality Show
I happened to open a piece of spam that was an invitation to apply to be on a new reality show called Rally Racer, where contestants can supposedly become race car drivers and compete for a million dollars.
When you check out their website application, they are requiring that applicants pay them $11.95 now by credit card or $14.95 by online check. I'm sure the discount for using a credit card is because it allows the scammers to make future charges against the card.
With all of the people in this country desperate to be on TV, it's a good bet that they will rake in a ton of money before the authorities shut this scam down.
