NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by Wall Street Capital Funding.

WESTON, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 4, 2006 -- Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: Smart Card Marketing Systems Inc. (OTC: SMKG), Citigroup (NYSE: C), Bank of America (NYSE: BAC) and eBay (NASDAQ: EBAY).

Smart Card Marketing Systems Inc. (OTC: SMKG) has released news that may get the attention of aggressive investors and day traders this morning! Yesterday after the stock markets closed, the company, a leading provider of prepaid cards, value smart storage cards and Payment transaction management services, issued a press release announcing that it has signed KL Financial to a distribution co-brand secured Mastercard® deal.

News of deal should get the attention of investors! The co-brand contract secures a commitment of five thousand initial cards for the 2nd tier financial market prospects. Smart Card will benefit from the sale of the cards with a royalty on transactional-based revenue generated by active cards. The estimated value of the revenues generated by each card, according to industry standards will be up to $45 to $75 per year, which translates into between $225,000 and $375,000 annually for Smart Card. This figure does not even include the revenue from the initial purchase.

Continue to watch this company! KL Financial is a Quebec based company and the secured credit card market is very new in the Canadian marketplace as many of the major financial institutions have not yet targeted this niche opportunity. This important new solution will allow credit challenged consumers and immigrants the opportunity to re-establish or create a better credit score to improve their chances for future financing.

Wall Street News Alert is placing Aggressive Investors on alert to monitor the progress of Smart Card Marketing! Smart Card Marketing Systems also announced yesterday that they have signed an agreement with a leading Canadian provider of electronic funds transfer services, to allow the Velocitymoney™ loading network (consumer site for activating, loading and reloading of charge cards) to add the new services of debiting or crediting funds from Canadian consumers or merchants bank accounts.

This added option will also allow Velocitymerchant.com, the merchant site of Smart Card Marketing, to broaden its range of services for international e-merchants requiring acquisition of financial transactions in Canada. These transactions could include but are not limited to payroll, bill payments, leases and prepaid charge cards. Many US companies do not have the accessibility of acquiring transactions for the Canadian marketplace as easily as they do in the US market.

Prior to the latest press release, the stock closed yesterday at Twenty cents a share.
