Title:Make Money Fast! Metric spaces, algebras and amenability
Seminar:Slow Pitch Seminar
Speaker:John Roe
Abstract:
INSTRUCTIONS Follow these instructions EXACTLY, and in 20 to 60 days you will have received well over $50,000.00 cash, all yours. This program has remained successful because of the HONESTY and INTEGRETY of the participants.

Call the file, MAKE.MONEY.FAST. Why won’t this work?

Now, there’s a bridge in New York that you may be interested in buying…
