Hi [my email address]
Last week we tried to contact you without any luck.
Reason being we have a job offer we think
you won't be able to say no to!
Most of our staff are making $7000-$8000 per month
with only 2 hours work each day.
You can work when you want and wherever
you want, all you need is a internet connection.
Answer four simple questions to apple for free here!
The job requires no experience, and the best part
is you can get started totally free of charge.
Which means if the "Brit Method" is not for you then
you haven’t spent a dime and at least you gave
it a chance...
We now have 4 more open positions!

Okay, as per usual the standard "job" scam flags are flying with this one - contacting me out of the blue in a declining economy, promising large sums of money for very little work.
Googling "the Brit Method" comes up with a whole page basically saying it's a stock market scam. I'm not going to be duplicating someone else's efforts here, but be aware, anything which is selling itself as a "method" for playing the stock market is about as reliable as any other "method" for making heaps of money by gambling (horses, poker, casinos, you name it - the stock market is just another gambling venue). That is to say, the most reliable way to make money from such things is to be the person selling the "method" to gullible suckers.
If you've received one of these, just delete it. Don't click on the links, and don't believe the promises of lots of money. The only people making money out of this scheme are the people selling it.
