Find your own hospital baby photo online...

More and more public data is becoming available on line every day. Individuals and institutions continue to make available more and more information on line. You are very likely able to find yourself in a Google search these days, from family ancestral websites to the roster of some local club or team. Preplinks.com is just another place where you might well find information about yourself.

"It took two years of researching public records to collect over 172,000,000 nursery photos - the pictures taken of newborn babies at over 98% of hospitals and medical centers. We owe many thanks to Arbitron, a research company that measures listening habits of everyday citizens. Mandated by federal guidelines, local municipalities must keep photos of all newborns in their public records - and preplinks.com has brought them all online for public viewing. We have the cutest baby pictures ever found in one database - all available for your easy search and retrieval. After you find your own you can check out your family members, friends and colleagues.

Our database uses neural network search technology, predictive forking - even from incomplete information."

Probable pseudo-fraud...

Please beware of email that contains phrasing like this...

Data entry from home can easily replace and exceed your current income, or give you a phenomenal second income, all the while giving you the freedom of staying/working from home. Our current members are making incredible money entering data from the comfort of their own homes. This is no fly by night get rich scheme, but it will give you a real opportunity to make from 700-4000 weekly.

After requesting more info from the email address they provide, you may be asked for a small amount of money to "cover the cost of sending out additional information".

If you pay this cost and receive this information, you may find out that the "data entry" is only the instructions on how to get money from people like yourself, like they just did from you.

While not exactly fraud, I don't think anyone I want to know is prepared to solicit money from others in this manner and call it "earned".
