Hi All,

I know this post does not belong here, however I wanted others to know about this scam, which almost stripped me of my $99.

Just do a google search for "picture.com," and "scam" and you'll find lots. The poetry arm of their scheme was even covered by ABC:

Here's one of the ditties selected for "publication" in one of their poetry anthologies:

My Cat Has Fleas

My cat is chewing on her butt;
It makes me think she is a nut.

I try to drown the fleas in spray;
They jump and shout and just yell "Hey!"

I try to drown the fleas in powder;
they eat it like it's fine clam chowder.

I try to drown the fleas in gas;
that really burned my kitty's ass.

(from the above website)

Someone should scan a photo of "Moonlight over Hernandes" and send it in just to see if its selected :blah:

Obvious that it should be rejected for lack of color.
