    About two weeks ago they sent me $2. Three days ago they sent me a beautiful orchid that I will plant. Today they showed up at my door and gave a brief explanation of who they are and how I fit in to it. Apparently I carry a meter they provide. Then she told me how I can make some money, like $50/mo. Then she gave me a $40 gift certificate useable tomorrow.

    What is this? How can a company give me money with no tax obligation? Or is there taxes?

    I really like people giving me money and flowers, but what's the catch? How does this come back to bite me in the arss?

    How can they just give money away like that? And I don't even have cable.


    Thanks

    I got some nice crisp one dollar bills for doing the survey several times, but the last survey contained no cash. I guess it was after he had passed on.....
