I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it. A little while back, <BR>I was browsing through newsgroups, just like you are now, and came across an <BR>article similar to this that said you could make thousands of dollars within <BR>weeks with only an initial investment of $6.00! So I thought, "Yeah right, <BR>this must be a scam", but like most of us, I was curious, so I kept reading. <BR>Anyway, it said that you send $1.00 to each of the 6 names and address stated <BR>in the article. You then place your own name and address in the bottom of the <BR>list at #6, and post the article in at least 200 newsgroups. (There are <BR>thousands) No catch, that was it. So after thinking it over, and talking to a <BR>few people first, I thought about trying it. I figured: "what have I got to <BR>lose except 6 stamps and $6.00, right?" Then I invested the measly $6.00. <BR>Well GUESS WHAT!?... within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail! I <BR>was shocked! I figured it would end soon, but the money just kept coming in. <BR>In my first week, I made about $ <BR>25.00. By the end of the second week I had made a total of over $1,000.00! In <BR>the third week I had over $10,000.00 and it&#039;s still growing. This is now my <BR>fourth week and I have made a total of just over $42,000.00 and it&#039;s still <BR>coming in rapidly. It&#039;s certainly worth $6.00, and 6 stamps, I have spent <BR>more than that on the lottery!! Let me tell you how this works and most <BR>importantly, WHY it works... Also, make sure you print a copy of this article <BR>NOW, so you can get the information off of it as you need it. I promise you <BR>that if you follow the directions exactly, that you will start making more <BR>money than you thought possible by doing something so easy! Suggestion: Read <BR>this entire message carefully! (print it out or download it.) Follow the <BR>simple directions and watch the money come in! It&#039;s easy. It&#039;s legal. And, <BR>your investment is only $6.00 (Plus postage) IMPORTANT: This is not a <BR>rip-off; it is not indecent; it is not illegal; and it is 99% no risk - it <BR>really works! If all of the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive extraordinary dividends. <BR>PLEASE NOTE: <BR>Please follow these directions EXACTLY, and $50,000 or more can be yours in <BR>20 to 60 days. This program remains successful because of the honesty and <BR>integrity of the participants. Please continue its success by carefully <BR>adhering to the instructions. You will now become part of the Mail Order <BR>business. In this business your product is not solid and tangible, it&#039;s a <BR>service. You are in the business of developing Mailing Lists. Many large <BR>corporations are happy to pay big bucks for quality lists. However, the money <BR>made from the mailing lists is secondary to the income which is made from <BR>people like you and me asking to be included in that list.Here are the 4 easy <BR>steps to success: STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the <BR>following on each piece of paper "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST." Now <BR>get 6 US $1.00 bills and place ONE inside EACH of the 6 pieces of paper so <BR>the bill will not be seen through the envelope (to prevent <BR>(thievery). Next, place one paper in each of the 6 envelopes and seal them. <BR>You should now have 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of paper stating <BR>the above phrase, your name and address, and a $1.00 bill. What you are doing <BR>is creating a service. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY LEGAL! You are requesting a <BR>legitimate service and you are paying for it! Like most of us I was a little <BR>skeptical and a little worried about the legal aspects of it all. So I <BR>checked it out with the U.S. Post Office (1-800-725-2161) and they confirmed <BR>that it is indeed legal. Mail the 6 envelopes to the following addresses: #1) <BR>Arthur Smith, 4118 Linnfield, Houston, TX. 77016 #2) JW Maher, 60 North <BR>Nimitz Hwy, #1902, Honolulu, HI 96817. #3) Mira Wubbens, 11503-A Walnut Ridge, <BR>Austin, TX 78753. #4)Bryce Turcotte, 501 3rd Ave., Laurel, MT 59044 #5) Mike <BR>Martinez, 5510 Timbercreek Place Dr. #2909, Houston, TX 77084 #6) Ellis Mazziotta 275 Glen Riddle Rd. #I34 Media, Pa 19063. <BR>STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move the other names up (6 <BR>becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc...) and add YOUR Name as number 6 on the list.<BR>STEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as close to <BR>original as possible. Now, post your amended article to at least 200 <BR>newsgroups. (I think there are close to 24,000 groups) All you need is 200, <BR>but remember, the more you post, the more money you make! You won&#039;t get very <BR>much unless you post like crazy. :) This is perfectly legal! If you have any <BR>doubts, refer to Title 18 Sec. 1302 & 1341 of the Postal lottery laws.Keep a <BR>copy of these steps for yourself and, whenever you need money, you can use it <BR>again, and again. PLEASE REMEMBER that this program remains successful <BR>because of the honesty and integrity of the participants and by their <BR>carefully adhering to the directions. Look at it this way. If you are of <BR>integrity, the program will continue and the money that so many others have <BR>received will come your way. NOTE: You may want to retain every name and <BR>address sent to you, either on a computer or hard copy and keep the notes people send you. This VERIFIES that you are truly providing a service. (Also, it might be a good idea to wrap the $1 bill in <BR>dark paper to reduce the risk of mail theft.) So, as each post is downloaded <BR>and the directions carefully followed, six members will be reimbursed for <BR>their participation as a List Developer with one dollar each. Your name will <BR>move up the list geometrically so that when your name reaches the #1 position <BR>you will be receiving thousands of dollars in CASH!!! What an opportunity for <BR>only $6.00 ($1.00 for each of the first six people listed above) Send it now, <BR>add your own name to the list and you&#039;re in business! ---DIRECTIONS ----- FOR <BR>HOW TO POST TO NEWSGROUPS------------ Step 1) You do not need to re-type this <BR>entire letter to do your own posting. Simply put your cursor at the beginning <BR>of this letter and drag your cursor to the bottom of this document, and <BR>select &#039;copy&#039; from the edit menu. This will copy the entire letter into the <BR>computer&#039;s memory. Step 2) Open a blank &#039;notepad&#039; file and place your cursor at the top of the blank page. <BR>From the &#039;edit&#039; menu select &#039;paste&#039;. This will paste a copy of the letter <BR>into notepad so that you can add your name to the list. Step 3) Save your new <BR>notepad file as a .txt file. If you want to do your postings in different <BR>settings, you&#039;ll always have this file to go back to. Step 4) Use Netscape or <BR>Internet explorer and try searching for various newsgroups (on-line forums, <BR>message boards, chat sites, discussions.) Step 5) Visit these message boards <BR>and post this article as a new message by highlighting the text of this <BR>letter and selecting paste from the edit menu. Fill in the Subject, this will <BR>be the header that everyone sees as they scroll through the list of postings <BR>in a particular group, click the post message button. You&#039;re done with your <BR>first one! Congratulations...THAT&#039;S IT! All you have to do is jump to <BR>different newsgroups and post away, after you get the hang of it, it will <BR>take about 30 seconds for each newsgroup! **REMEMBER, THE MORE NEWSGROUPS YOU POST IN, THE MORE MONEY YOU WILL MAKE! BUT : YOU HAVE TO POST A MINIMUM OF 200** That&#039;s it! You will begin receiving money from around the world within days! You may eventually want to rent a P.O.Box <BR>due to the large amount of mail you will receive. If you wish to stay <BR>anonymous, you can invent a name to use, as long as the postman will deliver <BR>it. **JUST MAKE SURE ALL THE ADDRESSES ARE CORRECT.** Now, each of the 5 <BR>persons who just sent me $1.00 make the MINIMUM 200 postings, each with my <BR>name at #5 and only 5 persons respond to each of the original 5, that is <BR>another $25.00 for me, now those 25 each make 200 MINIMUM posts with my name <BR>at #4 and only 5 replieseach, I will bring in an additional $125.00! Now, <BR>those 125 persons turn around and post the MINIMUM 200 with my name at #3 and <BR>onlyreceive 5 replies each, I will make an additional $625.00! OK, now here <BR>is the fun part, each of those 625 persons post a MINIMUM 200 letters with my <BR>name at #2 and they each only receive 5 replies, that just made me $3,125.00!!! Those 3,125 persons will all deliver <BR>this message to 200 newsgroups with my name at #1 and if still 5 persons per <BR>200 newsgroups react I will receive $15,625,00! With an original investment <BR>of only $6.00! AMAZING! When your name is no longer on the list, you just <BR>take the latest posting in the newsgroups, and send out another $6.00 to <BR>names on the list, putting your name at number 6 again. And start posting <BR>again. The thing to remember is: do you realize that thousands of people all <BR>over the world are joining the internet and reading these articles everyday?, <BR>JUST LIKE YOU are now!! So, can you afford $6.00 and see if it really works?? <BR>I think so... People have said, "what if the plan is played out and no one <BR>sends you the money? So what! What are the chances of that happening when <BR>there are tons of new honest users and new honest people who are joining the <BR>internet and newsgroups everyday and are willing to give it a try? Estimates <BR>are at 20,000 to 50,000 new users, every day, with thousands of those joining the actual internet.<BR> Remember, honesty and integrity will make this work... <BR>
