Not likely at all, so I wouldn't trust the link enough to click on it
and take any chances; some websites can now automatically install
malware on your computer.  At the very least, you're likely to get
ripped off because it is highly unlikely that legitimate subscriptions
are being sold at that price.  I hope no one here falls for this.

Cheers.

I can't vouch for the original poster, but go to ebay and search for
subscriptions of your favorite magazine. A lot of magazines are so desperate for
new subscribers that they give current subscribers free gift subscriptions and
they put them up for auction.

So if you don't want to trust the OP, go to ebay and find that subscriptions are
being sold at that price.

Yes, Tom, there are and here is an example: http://tinyurl.com/2vss5r But while there is always the possibility that they are legitimate, then
again it is VERY possible that they are NOT.  All things considered, I'm
not willing to take the chance for the following reasons:

1.  The poster appears to be a spammer (and scammer according to 'Ant');
the email addy is fritz@spamexpire-200711.rodent.frell.theremailer.net
and here is his/her profile -- http://tinyurl.com/3dmn5n -- which
indicates zero posts prior to October, a single post in October, and now
474 posts in November with activity in 218 newsgroups, and I'll bet my
next batch of beer that most of them are trying to sell something.  I
don't trust spammers; they are low-life criminals who are just as likely
to break other laws including ripping people off.

2.  As they say, "If something seems to be too good to be true, it
probably is."  A quick check of the BYO website and other magazine
outlets shows the following for a _ONE_ year subscription:
$28.00 direct from BYO - http://byo.com/index.html $24.95 http://www.magazines.com/ncom/mag?id=3947398929747&mid=0000009575 $24.95 from Amazon.com - http://tinyurl.com/yvlgnt $24.95 from http://www.magazine-agent.com/brew-your-own/magazine $18.85 lowest price MagazinePriceSearch.com - http://tinyurl.com/245snr -- or $27.68 for a __ TWO __ year subscription
And here this spammer is offering THREE years for Ten Dollars.  Frankly,
I don't think they'd arrive because the postage alone to deliver 24
magazines probably exceeds ten bucks.  Now, you could probably get your
money back from eBay, or PayPal, or your credit card company, but how
many of us would want to spend perhaps an hour or longer getting jerked
around on the phone or filling out forms just to recover $10.00.

But I could be wrong.  Cheers.
