Default Get paid to lose weight!!!

My friend sent me an email attachment about a site that pays you 2.00 for every pound you loose. All you have to do is by their diet program for only $198.00 and then they pay you ...[size=huge] RIGHT!!![/size] My email back to her said if the progran REALLY worked the couldn't aford to pay everyone back. The fact that they were willing to pay your was a sign that they wanted to scam you for 200.00.

Any one out ther tried this??? I'd really be interested in knowing if it does work, and what it's all about.

Hey I agree with you on that ageoldie. It's either you are out of $200 or it's like a fund that they deduct your $2 out of. $200 is much much too much to hand out for me.

Think of it this way: If you lost 200 pounds, you would get 2 dollars back. I dont even have 200 pounds to lose... Even if you were 300 pounds, 100 pounds would be way underweight...

Actually it would be $2 for every pound, so you'd have to lose 100pounds to make your money back. 2x100=200

The problem with these things is that you have to buy the products...and they usually run about $200. So, really, you get nothing and they lose nothing....because we all know there is no magic pill that will make us lose the weight. No matter how much money they want to pay us.
