Check out this page: http://money.cnn.com/galleries/2008/...ves.fsb/3.html

So how will you get the money from alert pay? will they send it to your bank account like paypal?

Lol, I took the liberty of fixing your post for you. No big deal, everyone hits the wrong key every now and then.

Well, it was on CNN. I guess if it was on CNN, it was legit. This isn't always true, but it really does look like a respectable site.

it looks legit, but may I ask why they wouldn't go with the most trusted name, paypal?

and the things at the bottom (veri-signed) aren't faked.
