Anybody else get this email recently? Entitled "Retirement Planning":

If you had purchased $1,000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it
would now be worth $49.00.

With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original

With WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left.

With Lucent, you would have $3.50 left of the original

But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago,
drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling
REFUND you would have had $214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to
drink heavily and recycle.

It's called the 401-Keg Plan

Viaticals are about getting people to be investors in buying insurance policies.

Yes, those people were taken advantage of. There will always be crooked people out there to abuse the non-informed looking for a quick buck.

This is for You to SELL your insurance policy which IS perfectly legal.

No money out of your hands at all. NONE!

You simply sell your insurance policy.
