This really works!

I was browsing through newsgroups, just like you
are now, : and came across an article similar to this that said you could
make : thousands of dollars within weeks with only an initial
investment of : $6.00! So I thought, "Yeah right, this must be a scam", but
: like most of us, I was curious, so I kept reading. Anyway, it
said : that you send $1.00 to each of the 6 names and address stated
in the : article. You then place your own name and address in the bottom
of : the list at #6, and post the article in at least 200
newsgroups. : (There are thousands) No catch, that was it. So after thinking
it : over, and talking to a few people first, I thought about trying
it. I : figured: "what have I got to lose except 6 stamps and $6.00,
: right?" Then I invested the measly $6.00. Well GUESS WHAT!?...
: within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail! I was
shocked! I : figured it would end soon, but the money just kept coming in.
In my : first week, I made about $25.00. By the end of the second week
I had : made a total of over $1,000.00! In the third week I had over
: $10,000.00 and it's still growing. This is now my fourth week
and I : have made a total of just over $42,000.00 and it's still coming
in : rapidly. It's certainly worth $6.00, and 6 stamps, I have spent
more : than that on the lottery!! Let me tell you how this works and
most : importantly, WHY it works... Also, make sure you print a copy
of this : article NOW, so you can get the information off of it as you
need it. : I promise you that if you follow the directions exactly, that
you : will start making more money than you thought possible by doing
: something so easy!: Suggestion: Read this entire message carefully! (print it out
or : download it.) Follow the simple directions and watch the money
come : in! : It's easy. It's legal. And, your investment is only $6.00 (Plus
: postage): IMPORTANT: This is not a rip-off; it is not indecent; it is not
: illegal; and it is 99% no risk - it really works!: If all of the following instructions are adhered to, you will
receive : extraordinary dividends.: PLEASE NOTE: : Please follow these directions EXACTLY, and $50,000 or more can
be : yours in 20 to 60 days. This program remains successful because
of : the honesty and integrity of the participants. Please continue
its : success by carefully adhering to the instructions. : You will now become part of the Mail Order business. In this
business : your product is not solid and tangible, it's a service. You are
in : the business of developing Mailing Lists. Many large corporations are
: happy to pay big bucks for quality lists. However, the money made
: from the mailing lists is secondary to the income which is made
from : people like you and me asking to be included in that list.
: Here are the 4 easy steps to success:
: STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following
on : each piece of paper "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST." Now
: get 6 US $1.00 bills and place ONE inside EACH of the 6 pieces
of : paper so the bill will not be seen through the envelope (to
prevent : thievery). Next, place one paper in each of the 6 envelopes and
seal : them. You should now have 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece
of : paper stating the above phrase, your name and address, and a
$1.00 : bill. What you are doing is creating a service. THIS IS
ABSOLUTELY : LEGAL! You are requesting a legitimate service and you are
paying for : it! Like most of us I was a little skeptical and a little
worried : about the legal aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the
U.S. : Post Office (1-800-725-2161) and they confirmed that it is
indeed : legal. Mail the 6 envelopes to the following addresses:
: #1) Wit Wichaidit: 10912 Broad Green Terrace: Potomac, MD 20854
: #2) Mike Schude: 893 S. roanoke: Gilbert, AZ 85296
: #3) David Freeman: 11045 Harbour Springs Circle: Boca Raton, Fl 33428
: #4) E. Benford: 6656 Mableton Pwky APT. #D4: Mableton, GA 30126
: #5) Kim Williams 3334 Kingsland Avenue Bronx, NY 10469
:: #6) Erin Miller: 2494 Beaver Creek Rd.: Greenville, NC 27834
: STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above,
move : the other names up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc...) and add
YOUR : Name as number 6 on the list.: STEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to keep this
article as : close to original as possible. Now, post your amended article
to at : least 200 newsgroups. (I think there are close to 24,000
groups) All : you need is 200, but remember, the more you post, the more
money you : make! You won't get very much unless you post like crazy. :)
: This is perfectly legal! If you have any doubts, refer to Title
18 : Sec. 1302 & 1341 of the Postal lottery laws.: Keep a copy of these steps for yourself and, whenever you need
money, : you can use it again, and again.: PLEASE REMEMBER that this program remains successful because of
the : honesty and integrity of the participants and by their
carefully : adhering to the directions. Look at it this way. If you are of
: integrity, the program will continue and the money that so many
: others have received will come your way.: NOTE: You may want to retain every name and 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 dark paper to reduce the
risk : of mail theft.): So, as each post is downloaded and the directions carefully
followed, : six members will be reimbursed for their participation as a
List : Developer with one dollar each. Your name will move up the list
: geometrically so that when your name reaches the #1 position
you will : be receiving thousands of dollars in CASH!!! What an
opportunity for : only $6.00 ($1.00 for each of the first six people listed
above) Send : it now, add your own name to the list and you're in business!
: Step 1) You do not need to re-type this entire letter to do
your own : posting. Simply put your cursor at the beginning of this letter
and : drag your cursor to the bottom of this document, and select
'copy' : from the edit menu. This will copy the entire letter into the
: computer's memory.: Step 2) Open a blank 'notepad' file and place your cursor at
the top : of the blank page. From the 'edit' menu select 'paste'. This
will : paste a copy of the letter into notepad so that you can add
your name : to the list. Step 3) Save your new notepad file as a .txt file.
If : you want to do your postings in different settings, you'll
always : have this file to go back to. : Step 4) Use Netscape or Internet explorer and try searching for
: various newsgroups (on-line forums, message boards, chat sites,
: discussions.): Step 5) Visit these message boards and post this article as a
new : message by highlighting the text of this letter and selecting
paste : from the edit menu. Fill in the Subject, this will be the
header that : everyone sees as they scroll through the list of postings in a
: particular group, click the post message button. You're done
with : your first one! Congratulations...THAT'S IT! All you have to do
is : jump to different newsgroups and post away, after you get the
hang of : it, it will take about 30 seconds for each newsgroup!
:YOU HAVE TO POST A MINIMUM OF 200** That's it! You will begin
receiving : money from around the world within days! If : you wish to stay anonymous, you can invent a name to use, as
long as : the postman will deliver it. **JUST MAKE SURE ALL THE ADDRESSES
ARE : CORRECT.** : Now, : each of the 5 persons who just sent me $1.00 make the MINIMUM
200 : postings, each with my name at #5 and only 5 persons respond to
each : of the original 5, that is another $25.00 for me, now those 25
each : make 200 MINIMUM posts with my name at #4 and only 5 replies
each, I : will bring in an additional $125.00! Now, those 125 persons
turn : around and post the MINIMUM 200 with my name at #3 and only
receive 5 : replies each, I will make an additional $625.00! OK, now here
is the : fun part, each of those 625 persons post a MINIMUM 200 letters
with : my name at #2 and they each only receive 5 replies, that just
made me : $3,125.00!!! Those 3,125 persons will all deliver this message
to 200 : newsgroups with my name at #1 and if still 5 persons per 200
: newsgroups react I wi
