READING THIS COULD CHANGE YOUR LIFE! I found this on a bulletin board and\ndecided to try it. A little while back, I was browsing through newsgroups,\njust like you are now, and came across an article similar to this that said\nyou could make\nthousands of dollars within weeks with only an initial investment of .00!\nSo I thought, "Yeah right, this must be a scam", but like most of us, I was\ncurious, so I kept reading. Anyway, it said that you send </body>.00 to each of\nthe 6 names and address\nstated in the article. You then place your own name and address in the\nbottom\nof the list at #6, and post the article in at least 200 newsgroups. (There\nare thousands) No catch, that was it. So after thinking it over, and\ntalking to a few people first, I thought about trying it. I figured: "what\nhave I got to lose except 6 stamps and .00, right?" Then I invested the\nmeasly .00. Well GUESS WHAT!!, within 7 days, I started getting money in\nthe mail! I was shocked! I figured it would end soon, but the money just\nkept coming in. In my first week, I made about .00. By the end of the\nsecond week I had made a total of over </body>,000.00! In the third week I had\nover ,000.00 and it's\nstill growing. This is now my fourth week and I have made a total of just\nover ,000.00 and it's still coming in rapidly. It's certainly worth\n.00, and 6 stamps, I have spent\nmore than that on the lottery!! Let me tell you how this works and\nmost importantly, why it works....Also, make sure you print a copy of this\narticle NOW, so you can get the information off of it as you need it. I\npromise you that if you follow the directions exactly, that you will start\nmaking more money than you thought\npossible by doing something so easy!\n\nSuggestion: Read this entire message carefully! (print it out or download\nit.) Follow the\nsimple directions and watch the money come in!\n\nIt's easy. It's legal. And, your investment is only .00 (Plus postage)\nIMPORTANT: This is not a rip-off; it is not indecent;\nit is not illegal; and it is virtually no risk - it really works!!!! If all\nof\nthe following instructions are adhered to, you will receive extraordinary\ndividends. PLEASE NOTE: Please follow these directions EXACTLY, and ,000\nor more can be yours in 20 to 60 days. This program remains successful\nbecause of the honesty and\nintegrity of the participants. Please continue its\nsuccess by carefully adhering to the instructions. You will now become part\nof the Mail Order business. In this business your product is not solid and\ntangible, it's a service. You are in the business of developing Mailing\nLists. Many large corporations\nare happy to pay big bucks for quality lists. However, the money made from\nthe mailing lists is secondary to the income which is made from people like\nyou and me asking to be included in that list. Here\nare the 4 easy steps to success:\n\nSTEP 1:Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on each piece\nof paper\n"PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST." Now get 6 US\n\n</body>.00 bills and place ONE inside EACH of the 6 pieces of paper so the\nbill will not be seen through the envelope (to prevent thievery). Next,\nplace one paper in each of the 6 envelopes and seal them. You should now\nhave 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of paper stating the above\nphrase, your name and address, and a </body>.00\nbill. What you are doing is creating a service.\n\nTHIS IS ABSOLUTELY LEGAL! You are requesting a legitimate service and you\nare\npaying for it! Like most of us I was a little skeptical and a little worried\nabout the legal aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the U.S. Post\nOffice (1-800-725-2161) and they confirmed that it is indeed legal!\nREMEMBER, IF YOU DON'T SEND THE MONEY TO PEOPLE THE "SYSTEM" WON'T WORK AND\nNOBODY WILL GET MONEY. Mail the 6 envelopes to the following addresses:\n\n#1) Joe Campbell\n25 Brucewood Crs.#701\nToronto, on.,M6A 3C9, Canada\n\n#2) Keith Lambert\n1958 Dunedin Drive\nOld Hickory, Tennessee 37138\n\n#3) Heidi Schilling\n913 SE 13th Ter.\nCape Coral, Florida 33990\n\n#4) Fay Mayo\n2808 Rueckert Ave.\nBaltimore, MD 21214\n\n#5) Bret Kershner\n182 Valley Rd\nBernville, PA\n\n#6) B. Hartman\n2515 Friarwood Trail\nKingwood, Texas 77339\n\nSTEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move the other\nnames up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc...) and add YOUR Name as number 6 on\nthe list.\n\nSTEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as close\nto original as possible. Now, post your amended article to at least 200\nnewsgroups. (I think\nthere are close over 35,000) All you need is 200, but remember, the more you\npost, the more money you make! This is perfectly legal! If you have any\ndoubts, refer to Title\n18Sec. 1302 & 1341 of the Postal lottery laws. Keep a copy of these steps\nfor\nyourself and, whenever you need money, you can use it again ,and again.\nPLEASE REMEMBER that this program remains successful because of the honesty\nand integrity of the participants and by their carefully adhering to the\ndirections. Look at it this way. If you are of integrity, the program will\ncontinue and the money that so many others have received will come your way.\nNOTE: You may want to retain every name and address sent to you, either on\na computer or hard copy and keep the notes people send you. This VERIFIES\nthat you are truly providing a service. (Also, it might be a good idea to\nwrap the </body> bill in dark paper to reduce the risk of mail theft.)\n\nSo, as each post is downloaded and the directions carefully followed, six\nmembers will be reimbursed for their participation as a List Developer with\none dollar each. Your name will move up the list geometrically so that when\nyour name reaches the #1 position you will be receiving thousands of dollars\nin CASH!!! What an\nopportunity for only .00 (</body>.00 for each of the first six people listed\nabove) Send it now, add your own name to the list and you're in business!\n\n-\-\-DIRECTIONS -\-\-\-\- FOR HOWTO POST TO NEWSGROUPS-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\n\nStep1) You do not need to re-type this entire letter to do your own posting.\nSimply put your cursor at the beginning of this letter and drag your cursor\nto the bottom of this\ndocument, and select 'copy' from the edit menu. This will copy the entire\nletter into the computer's memory.\nStep 2) Open a blank 'notepad' file and place your cursor at the top of the\nblank page. From the 'edit' menu select 'paste'. This will paste a copy of\nthe letter into notepad so that you can add your name to the list.\nStep 3) Save your new notepad file as a .txt file. If you want to do your\npostings in different settings, you'll always have this file to go back to.\nStep 4) Use Netscape or Internet Explorer and try searching for various\nnewsgroups (on-line forums, message boards, chat sites, discussions.)\nStep 5) Visit these message boards and post this article as a new message by\nhighlighting the text of this letter and selecting paste from the\nedit menu. Fill in the Subject, this will be the header that everyone sees\nas they scroll through the list of postings in a particular group, click the\npost message button.\n\nYou're done with your first one! Congratulations...THAT'S IT! All you have\nto do is jump to different newsgroups and post away, after you get the hang\nof it, it will take about 30 seconds for each newsgroup! **REMEMBER, THE\nMORE NEWSGROUPS YOU POST IN, THE MORE MONEY YOU WILL MAKE!! BUT YOU HAVE TO\nPOST A MINIMUM OF 200**. That's it! You will begin receiving money from\naround\nthe world within days! You may eventually want to rent a P.O. Box due to\nthe large amount of mail you will receive. If you wish to stay anonymous,\nyou can invent a name to use, as long as the postman will deliver it. **JUST\nMAKE SURE ALL THE ADDRESSES ARE CORRECT.**. Now the WHY part: Out of 200\npostings, say I receive only 5 replies (a very low example). So then I made\n.00 with my name at #6 on the letter. Now, each of the 5 persons who just\nsent me </body>.00 make the MINIMUM 200 postings, each with my name at #5 and\nonly 5 persons respond to each of the original 5, that is another .00 for\nme, now those 25 each make 200\n\nMINIMUM posts with my name at #4 and only 5 replies each, I will bring in an\nadditional 5.00! Now, those125 persons turn\naround and post the MINIMUM 200 with my name at #3and only receive 5 replies\neach, I will make an additional 6.00! OK, now here is the fun part, each\nof those 625 persons post a MINIMUM 200 letters with my name at #2 and they\neach only receive 5\nreplies, that just made me ,125.00!!! Those 3,125 persons will all\ndeliver this message to 200 newsgroups with my name at #1 and if still\n5persons per 200 newsgroups react I will receive ,625,00! With an\noriginal investment of only .00! AMAZING!\n\nWhen your name is no longer on the list, you just take the latest posting in\nthe news groups, and send out another .00 to names on the list, putting\nyour name at number 6 again. And start posting again. The thing to remember\nis: do you realize that\nthousands of people all over the world are joining the internet and reading\nthese articles everyday?, JUST LIKE YOU are now!! So, can you afford .00\nand see if it really works?? I think so... People have said, "what if the\nplan is played out and no one sends you the money? So what! What are the\nchances of that happening when there are tons of new honest users and new\nhonest people who are joining the internet and newsgroups everyday and are\nwilling to give it a try? Estimates are at 20,000 to\n50,000 new users, every day, with thousands of those joining the actual\ninternet. Remember, play FAIRLY and HONESTLY and this will really work.
