Hello fellow listers,
This message came through from another list that I subscribe to:
> The old genealogy scam is back. www.genseekers.com
> Behind the password protection are links to the free
> genealogy on-line. There is no content of their own.
> In order to get the "5-day free trial" you have to
> surrender a credit card or bank account number. You
> have to cancel within 5 days or you get dinged. Guess
> what? The cancellation e-mail bounces. Does this
> surprise you?
> One person who recently fell for the come-on had
> his/her account dinged not once, but twice.
> It is time to remind folks on your state and county
> mailing lists about these scoundrels. It has been a
> couple of years since we have mentioned this.
> Permission is granted to pass this on.
