Today I was going through a pile of old mail I have yet to open and found an notice that I was selected for inclusion into the "famous" Strathmore's Who's Who. Wowzer's!! Right?

Now at first I figured this is probably a scam, the same as when I poem I wrote got selected to be included in a special edition collection of elite authors by poetry.com. All you need to do is pay some elaborate fee for the "publishing".

But then I thought hey maybe they saw I received my CPA or maybe saw this website which would definitely earn me a spot on any list(Ok that's an embellishment).

So I did a search and found it was definitely a scam.

What makes me wonder most about these scams is how do the people... the owners, the sales people, or even the secretaries of this company ... how do they wake up everyday and knowing that they are going to work for a company that is completely worthless to the society and just a fraud to the American dream? A cashier at the McDonalds, a disgraced politician, hell even staff at an abortion clinic earn more admiration then these people do, I just can't imagine the type of people who could make a career doing stuff like that.

And what sucks more is people actually fall for this type of scam. This press release by Wayward Community College congratulates a professor for their successful induction (buying) into the list.
