Hopefully they will stop trying to give me money when they read my answer:

Dear Mr. Howard,

unfortunately I have to decline your offer since I dont think
it is worth the effort. I earn more money in my daily job -
which is sending stupid emails to other people and making them
believe they could esily get rich. I typically use free mail
accounts to send these messages around telling people that
I represent a company searching for reliable representatives.
Unfortunately my job get's harder these days since it is not
a new idea and most people dont want to get rich - typically
they send me an answer that they do the same job as I do and
have to decline my offer...

Very Respectfully,
Mr. John Massmailer
