Organised chit funds

In North India, a common type of chit fund uses small paper slips with each member’s name, gathered in a box. When all members are at a monthly or weekly meeting, the one in charge—in front of the other members—picks a slip from the box. The member so selected gets that day’s collection. Afterwards, that persons name slip is discarded. Thereafter, he comes to the meetings and pays his share, but his name isn’t selected again.

  1. I’m not sure if you got my last message, but here it is again.

    This month, a $50 BONUS is waiting for you when you sign up at TakeSurveysForCash.

    All kinds of survey companies and market researchers are offering signup bonuses to recruit new panelists.

    Remember, your membership can be shared with a friend or family member too!

    By the way, a few minutes ago, I just checked my email and I got $390 worth of survey offers for the next week. That means I could earn $390 simply by taking those surveys on my computer.

    Makes me wonder what I’m doing wasting my time sending these messages! 🙂

    Anyways, I hope to see you sign up soon. I know you won’t regret it!
