Could this work and is it legal? It is a chain email with a twist. Asked to get a standard paypal account, which cost me nothing. Asked to set up an account at an online site, which will allow you to sell downloadable ebooks. (Cost $5 a month.) Money earned by selling an ebook will be forwarded to my paypal account. Upload an ebook that is attached to the email. The book is free and author gives anyone the right to sell or give the ebook away. Go back to the email and click on each of the five numbered links given, which takes you to five different accounts on the same website you just set up your account on and buy the same book you just uploaded for $5 each. (cost $25)Then delete the top link and add yours to the bottom. Go and buy 5,000 opt in email addresses of folks who are looking for a business opportunity. Send the emails out to them asking them to do the same. Earn $5 per ebook sold and the upper tier could sell thousands. Supposedly, everyone can become a millionaire if small % contacted would follow program. Well, what does the law of the land say?

Am I going to get arrested for doctor shopping, in Georgia,

Am I going to get arrested for doctor shopping, in Georgia, I went to 3 docs this past month. I moved here 3-4 weeks ago, I was honestly trying to find a doctor that would be a good fit for me and my condition, but they did all give my an rx for the same thing schedule II stimulant. Pharmacist caught me and is calling a doctor in Texas, where I moved from and who's rx was the next one I was going to fill, to let him know what I was doing. The other 3 docs are in Georgia, but they're calling the one in Texas. They already shredded my rx.What happens next?

I got arrested smoking marijuana near a pilublic park in New

I got arrested smoking marijuana near a pilublic park in New York city. I was driven to the precient where thry took my photos and my fingerprints. The officer assured me that this not a big deal because it was my first offense. I got court appearance date 2 months from now in a court in NY.This is the first time something like this happens in my life, I live in California and I have a medical marijuana card. I didn't know that this card doesn't apply in New York.My questions are,What is best course of action that I can do now to control the damage?Does this fo on my record? Meaning it will appear in background checks done by employers?I'm an immigrant, will this affect my chances in obtaining a greencard or citizenship one day?Is it possible to appear in court tomorrow instead of after 2 months? I live in California and I'm not sure if I'll be here again at that time.Thank you

Marsha411JD: Here is my last question on the 'work'

Customer Here is my last question on the 'work' scenario. Every time I tried to get the parents to reign in their daughter's efforts to make my job harder (coming and going at all times of the day while she was supposed to be my relief at the front desk... for instance), they would say, "that's why we pay her under the table." My question is whether it's illegal to pay your kid for working at your business, but keeping her out of the 'system.' I don't see how they could have put her in any of the payroll tax systems (workman's comp, SocSec, etc.) without enabling her to be taxed, so I'm guessing giving your kid 'an allowance' for working for you isn't illegal. Thanks.

Marsha411JD: Here's another question related to my original

Customer Here's another question related to my original 'work' scenario. I understand that in some cases you can collect unemployment even if you quit, as long as your employer created/allowed a toxic work environment which you could no longer stand. In my situation, I was already constantly having to put up with being drawn into the owners' (husband, wife, daughter) arguments and regularly bearing the brunt of their anger. The parents run a physical therapy business which also accepts Medicare patients. Their physical records were all over the office space, they weren't following Medicare regulations, they would intentionally not address patients' billing needs if they didn't like the person, the daughter would take over my desk as soon as I got up to go to the bathroom, etc. When they weren't fighting with themselves, they would accuse me of making mistakes the daughter made, communicate things to me which they later denied having done, and more. I was already having to use part of my visits to a therapist to address these issues. Then after they learned that I was looking for another job, things got even worse to include cursing me, making messes for me to clean up, getting mad at me when I would tell them their daughter was making my job harder on purpose. The day I quit, I was confronted by the father in the parking lot as I was on my way to a therapy appointment. Even though I had texted him previously upon making the appointment, he denied ever getting it and said I should be telling that to his wife (who previously said the husband was my boss). He cursed at me and I told him that I quit. He then started talking about details about my job search. I'm sorry for proving all those details, but I wanted to stress what a mess I was subjected to. So, the bot***** *****ne is whether an unemployment office would accept that scenario to override the fact that I quit. Thank you.
