that can happento any Internet user is to be rewarded for

known that over one hundred billion people daily surf the
Internet on regular basis for one reason or other.
These Internet users including yourself, pay access fees
to various Internet Service Providers (ISP) all over the
world who in turn remit surplus funds to the numerous
World Wide Internet Technology Companies (WWITC)for the
developmentand advancement of Global Information
Technology.

So much money is generated from people like you all over
the World for using the Information Superhighway (the
Internet) without your being aware the enormous sum that
go to the stake holders (WWWITC). Without your patronage,
this would not have been possible. After we conducted a
research on the issue, we concluded that Internet users
