      I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it. A little
      while back, 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

      IMPORTANT: This is not a rip-off; it is not indecent; it is not
      illegal; and it is virtually no risk - it really works!!!!
      If all of the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive
      extraordinary dividends.

      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) Jeff Millan
      1113 N. 19
      McAllen,TX 78501

  #2) R. Overton
      P.O. Box 18818
      So. Lake Tahoe, CA 96151

  #3) Stephen Conway
      1024 Crescent Dr.
      Roswell NM 88201

  #4) Nathan Salerno
      618 North Taylor Ave. apt 3
      Pittsburgh PA 15212

  #5) Celestina Chaney
      2062 Featherwood Dr. W
      Atlantic Beach, Fl 32233

#6) Shawn Gray
       3744 N Grand Ave. #43
        Phoenix, AZ 85019

      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
      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,

      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!
      That's it! You will begin receiving money from around the world
      within days! You may eventually want to rent a P.O.Box due to the
      amount of mail you will receive. If you wish to stay anonymous,
      you can invent a name to use, as long as the postman will deliver

      Now the WHY part:
      Out of 200 postings, say I receive only 5 replies (a very low
      example). So then I made $5.00 with my name at #6 on the letter.
      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 $626.00! 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 will receive $15,625,00! With an original
      investment of only $6.00! AMAZING! When your name is no longer on the
      list, you just take the latest posting in the newsgroups, and send
      out another $6.00 to names on the list, putting your name at number 6
      again. And start posting again. The thing to remember is: do you
      realize that thousands of people all over the world are joining the
      internet and reading these articles everyday?, JUST LIKE YOU are
      now!! So, can you afford $6.00 and see if it really works?? I think
      so... People have said, &quote;what if the plan is played out and no
      one sends you the money? So what! What are the chances of that
      happening when there are tons of new honest users and new honest
      people who are joining the internet and newsgroups everyday and are
      willing to give it a try? Estimates are at 20,000 to 50,000 new
      users, every day, with thousands of those joining the actual
      Remember: play FAIRLY and HONESTLY and this will really work.
