Buy Land on the Sun
There's a scam business that's been in operation for years that offers to sell land on the moon. But a new group is raising the ante by offering to sell you land on the sun! Thankfully, all money they collect goes to aid the American Cancer Society.

No not al the money goes to the cancer society, at least 53% though. It seems that thesight costs money too!

Presumably, the other 47 percent goes to the cost of the funny gag items you receive for donating -- the move-in guide, the title to the land, the shipping of said items -- as well as the site fees.
