Crazy Broker Schemes: Free GMail Account

Who says NYC has a monopoly on genius real estate agents? Florida broker John Mudd emails this startling offer:

By now you have likely heard of Gmail, Google's new invite-only e-mail service that provides you with 1,000 megabytes (1 gigabyte) of e-mail storage... Want to get your own FREE Gmail account? Well, now you may have a chance to do so. Anyone who refers a serious home, condo or other property type (i.e., commercial investment, industrial, multi-family, etc.) Buyer or Seller to me in response to this e-mail and includes their full name and contact information will be entered into a drawing to receive one of the two remaining invitations for a FREE INVITATION TO YOUR VERY OWN GMAIL ACCOUNT.

Subject: Free Google Gmail Gift Drawing
Dear Friend,

By now you have likely heard of Gmail, Google's new invite-only e-mail service that provides you with 1,000 megabytes (1 gigabyte) of e-mail storage space and the ability to permanently archive any e-mail you receive (this comes in handy for both business purposes and personal reasons, and possibly even legal ones, too), plus it allows you to search archived messages via keyword. The powers that be (thanks, Ev, Shellen) granted me my very own Gmail account and three more to share with my wonderful friends, but I just couldn't live with myself if I just picked three of my friends to receive these awesome accounts, so here's what I've decided to do:

I'm currently auctioning one Gmail account starting at $1.99 (the Buy Now price is up to $118 on some Gmail auctions). All proceeds, except for auction fees, will be donated to charity. The winner will be able to select one charitable organization for half of the proceeds to go to. The other half will go to SPOT (Stop Pet Overpopulation Together Tampa Bay).

Still want to get your own FREE Gmail account? Well, now you may have a chance to do so. Anyone who refers a serious home, condo or other property type (i.e., commercial investment, industrial, multi-family, etc.) Buyer or Seller to me in response to this e-mail and includes their full name and contact information will be entered into a drawing to receive one of the two remaining invitations for a FREE INVITATION TO YOUR VERY OWN GMAIL ACCOUNT. If you refer yourself to me, I will consider that as a referral and enter your name into the drawing. Multiple entries from the same entrant will disqualify the entrant from the contest. Multiple referrals in one e-mail will not be considered multiple entries. This contest is void where prohibited.

Please feel free to share this with friends, as I will also enter them in the contest, as well, if they follow the criteria. If there's anything else I can do to help you with your real estate buying or selling needs, please let me know, as helping you is always a pleasure. I hope all is well with you as you get this. Take care and have a wonderful day! I am always

Very truly yours,

John Mudd
