No Paul it's real. In fact, I've already sent them my $150. administration
fee and they said I will be getting my $$$. I believe the exact words were
"we will gladly pay you on Tuesday."

So let me get this straight:

It's a "real-fake", or a "fake-fake". Or is it so preposterous as to be a
"real-fake-fake" ?

By all means, quit your job immediately.

I've already quit my job and I just bought a big new house in anticipation

Mel,
Humor aside, I had a buddy who honestly believed that he had won the
"Publisher's Clearing House Sweepstakes" The promo they sent him was very
misleading. I've heard of others that started spending the money they
"thought" they had won. Sad really.

Not unlike most all the regulars in this group ( I suspect ), my mother told
me when I was about 6 that nothing is given to you free.

I immediately asked her if she was calling in the note on my bike.

Stew,
There probably was a note attached to the bike, probably had something
to do with your ongoing good conduct, at least it was for my privileges. But
you're right, it that sense nothing is for free. :-)
