I feel really bad for anyone who actually buys into this crap. So, if you read the site a bit, you'll find this:
Our Ambassadorship has been authorized by Dennis M. Hope, who filed a declaration of ownership for Earth's Moon and the planets Mars, Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto as well as their respective moons, on November 22, 1980.

This declaration of ownership was initially filed at the San Francisco County offices and then filed with the U.S.A., U.S.S.R., and the General Assembly of the United Nations. A copy of this declaration is included with every property purchase.

This insures that Dennis M. Hope has the right to sell these properties to us, and that we can legally sell these properties to you.
Basically, some crackpot claimed that he owned all the planets (and their respective moons), filed his ownership rights, and is now letting these guys resell his property.

I'm really interested to know how why this guy thinks he has rights to all the planets...

Wow, I used a BLOCKQUOTE tag for my quote, and it really messed up the formatting ... sorry about that.

Ahem. Perhaps it would work if someone would set some style rules. . . .

hahaha. I set margins and font familys on the blockquote and p tags, but it still breaks out of the message DIV's box properties.

So in other words...I'm working on it!
