When my uncle was in college, he put an ad in a few local newspapers that read simply;
"This is your LAST CHANCE to send a dollar to this address:"
And then he included his mailing address.
That's it. No promises, no products, no nothing except the money to place the ads. I forget the exact figure, but he received thousands of dollars in the mail before the U.S. Postal Inspector showed up at his door. Apparently, the implication, in his ad, that there was some limit in time or otherwise to sending the money was sufficient to trigger mail fraud applicability.
I seem to recall that he managed to avoid serious penalty by claiming that it was the unexpected gains from a psychology field experiment gone wrong. He had to return all the money also.
Anyway, just goes to show you.
There are a LOT of morons that have learned to function in society.
THEY WALK AMONG US ALL!

Sugar Loaded Candy Cane!
Hey bout 10 years ago I had my own website dedicated to a joke religion. I even had a Faq that led to a link that spelled out in big flaming letters that the whole site was a joke. I still had people sending me emails asking me where they could send donations and if there was a local church they could attend.
I always sent them a nice E-Mail telling them that the site was a joke. I still laugh as the whole "religion" was based on the toilet.
