  1. Hey

    In the last 2 weeks, I've been bombarded with dozens of emails from
    people asking me to review the Z Code Sports picks service.

    Finally I decided to give it a try. Here is how it works:

    These guys combine the power of their human cappers who are experts in
    sports with the power of technology: statistical data since 1999.
    Their wins are documented and proven - each winning and losing pick is
    available for members to check and verify in the members zone.

    The performance chart goes straight into profits. Over $12,000 usd
    profit for average bet of $100 during the last 2 months!

    No wonder... I mean,

    even if you are skeptical you really NEED to check out how transparent
    these guys truly are...
    Videos of bank accounts stuffed with money, videos of bookmaker
    accounts, screenshots proving how effective this killer software is,
    videos of how to make the money risk free, hundreds of real people

    ...proof, proof, and more proof!! All sitting there for you to
    absorb! Don't take my word for it - you have to see it to believe it.

    ===> My Z Code System & picks review <=====

    And the best part about it is just how easy it is to use! Everything
    about this product is TOP class-

    - from the software itself
    - to the video tutorials showing how to use the software & picks
    - to the comprehensive FAQ & Money management tips
    - to the bookmaker reviews, tips how to improve your profits and avoid
    the losses.

    These guys have everything covered!

    Check it out for yourself:

    ===> Is ZCode System SCAM or a real deal? <=====

    This is the highest quality product I've seen in a long time and the
    developers have clearly spent a ton of time on it to make sure that
    you and I get the most accurate sports predictions possible

    If you haven't downloaded your copy yet, I encourage you to do it now!
    You're missing guaranteed profits with every passing second...

    ===> Here is how you can win using the statistical data since 1999 <=====

    [Your closing]

    P.S. There's a free tool, called Sports Predictions, that you can get
    simply by visiting the site...
    They're giving it out as a gift so head over there quickly :)
