Gifting Activity

I have been approached to participate in a "gifting activity."

Is this legal? What are the ramifications of participating?

Basically, the process is I send $100 cash or money order by Fed Ex or UPS,

not USPS, and soon will receive back $800. I then send $500 of that money

and get back $4000, etc. until I reach the potential of receiving $40,000, all

off the initial $100 investment.

Sounds fishy and too good to be true.

I want to protect myself and my friends.

The folks who have approached me are friends and are already involved, and

both have already received their $800 back on their $100 investment and are

prepared to take the next step. The organizers claim legality under IRS Tax codes

and obviously are avoiding some Mail Code problems by not using the US Post Office.

Thanks for your assistance.
