Artzsche DVD "History of Mechanical Music"
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  Just wanted to add my name to the list of those who paid
for the DVD as soon as I received the email about said DVD.  _But,_
I have one question that to my knowledge hasn't been asked thus far:
How did this company know who to target?  It's seems doubtful that
they sent out 3 billion emails in the hopes of catching the attention
of a few hundred enthusiasts.

Admittedly, if you scam 1000 people for $20.00 each, you make $20,000.
But the fact that the company only accepted payment via PayPal puts
them at an extreme disadvantage.  And, unless I miss my guess, it looks
like PayPal will eventually refund all the money to those who complain,
even though the 45 day grace period has elapsed.

For your information, I took the time to 'unscramble' the original
email I received about the DVD.  (I don't know if I'm the only one who
received the email with a 'strike out' through the complete text of the
email.  My email program is set not to read html emails.  It converts
them to regular text.)  Below is what I received.
