Dear friend,

Here's an opportunity that I genuinely believe,
satisfies the criteria we all seek in a business
opportunity.

I can confirm from my research this is an ethical
opportunity that does indeed provide significant
]returns. To my knowledge, it is relatively
unheard of, and slots perfectly into the Internet
explosion. This is not just another biz opp,
cloned from umpteen similar opportunities from
goodness knows where, ready to be deleted as
soon as they hit your inbox.  I should know I
get enough of them! There are plenty of people
doing this in the UK, States and Canada; genuine
people who are willing to assist you.Indeed, you
will find people contacting you, as I did,
offering to provide help and guidance if required.

I send this to you as I received it.

Give this your undivided attention.
Read twice...carefully. (Best to print off first.)

Yours sincerely
BOB 

Here we go....

Dear Friend,

You can earn $55,000 or more in next the 90 days
sending e-mail, seem impossible? Read on for
details (no, there is no 'catch')...

MULTI-LEVEL MARKETING (MLM) has finally
gained respectability. It is
being taught in the Harvard Business School,
and both Stanford Research and
the Wall Street Journal have stated that
between 50% and 65% of all goods
and services will be sold through multi-level
methods by the mid to late 1990's.
This is a Multi-Billion Dollar industry
and of the 500,000 millionaires
in the U.S., 20% (100,000) made their
fortune in the last several years
in MLM. Moreover, statistics show 45
people become millionaires everyday
through Multi-Level Marketing.

You may have heard this story before, but over
the summer Donald Trump (A MULTI-BILLIONAIRE,
ONE OF THE WEALTHIEST MEN IN THE WORLD) made
an appearance on the David Letterman show.
Dave asked him what he would do if he lost
everything and had to start over from
scratch. Without hesitating, Trump said he
would find a good network marketing company
and get to work. The audience started to
hoot and boo him. He looked out at the
audience and dead-panned his response
"That's why I'm sitting up here and you
are all sitting out there!"

With network marketing you have two
sources of income. Direct commissions
from sales you make yourself and
commissions from sales made by people
you introduce to the business.

Residual income is the secret of the wealthy.
It means investing time or money once and
getting paid again and again and again. In
network marketing, it also means getting
paid for the work of others.

The enclosed information is something I
almost let slip through my fingers.
Fortunately, sometime later I re-read
everything and gave some thought and
study to it.

My name is Johnathon Rourke. Two years
ago, the corporation I worked at for the
past twelve years down-sized and my
position was eliminated. After
unproductive job interviews, I decided
to open my own business. Over the

past year, I incurred many unforeseen
financial problems. I owed my family,
friends and creditors over $35,000.
The economy was taking a toll on my
business and I just couldn't seem
to make ends meet. I had to refinance
and borrow against my home to support
my family and struggling business.
AT
THAT MOMENT something significant
happened in my life and I am writing
to share the experience in the hope
that this will change your life
FOREVER FINANCIALLY!!!

In mid December, I received this
program via e-mail. Six months
prior to receiving this program I
had been sending away for
information on various business
opportunities. All of the
programs I received, in my opinion,
were not cost effective. They were
either too difficult for me to
comprehend or the initial investment
was too much for me to risk to see
if they would work or not. One
claimed that I would make a million
dollars in one year...it didn't tell
me I'd have to write a book to make it!

But like I was saying, in December of
1997 I received this program. I
didn't send for it, or ask for it,
they just got my name off a mailing
list.
THANK GOODNESS FOR THAT!!! After
reading it several times, to make
sure I was reading it correctly, I
couldn't believe my eyes. Here was
a MONEY MAKING PHENOMENON. I could
invest as much as I wanted to start,
without putting me further into debt.
After I got a pencil and paper and
figured it out, I would at least get
my money back. But like most of you
I was still a little skeptical and a
little worried about the legal
aspects of it all.

After determining the program was
LEGAL and NOT A CHAIN LETTER, I
decided "WHY NOT?"

Initially I sent out 100,000 e-mails.
It cost me about $15 for my time
on-line. The great thing about e-mail
is that I don't need any money for
printing to send out the program,
and because all of my orders are
fulfilled via e-mail, the only
expense is my time. I am telling
you like it is, I hope it doesn't
turn you off, but I promised myself
that I would not "rip-off" anyone,
no matter how much money it cost me.

In less than one week, I was starting
to receive orders for REPORT #1.
By January 13, I had received 26
orders for REPORT #1. Your goal is
to "RECEIVE at least 20 ORDERS FOR
REPORT #1 WITHIN 2 WEEKS. IF YOU
DON'T, SEND OUT MORE PROGRAMS UNTIL
YOU DO!" My first step in making
$55,000 in 90 days was done.

By January 30, I had received 196
orders for REPORT #2. Your goal is
to "RECEIVE AT LEAST 100+ ORDERS
FOR REPORT #2 WITHIN 2 WEEKS. IF
NOT, SEND OUT MORE PROGRAMS UNTIL
YOU DO. ONCE YOU HAVE 100 ORDERS,
THE REST IS EASY, RELAX, YOU WILL
MAKE YOUR $55,000 GOAL." Well, I
had 196 orders for REPORT #2, 96
more than I needed. So I sat back
and relaxed. By March 1, of my
e-mailing of 100,000, I received
$58,000 with more coming in every
day.

I paid off ALL my debts and bought
a much needed new car. Please take
time to read the attached program,
IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOREVER!!!
Remember, it won't work if you don't
try it. This program does work, but
you must follow it EXACTLY! Especially
the rules of not trying to place your
name in a different place. It won't work,
you'll lose out on a lot of money!
In
order for this program to work, you
must meet your goal of 20+ orders
for REPORT #1, and 100+ orders for
REPORT #2 and you will make $55,000
or
more in 90 days. I AM LIVING PROOF
THAT IT WORKS!!!

If you choose not to participate in
this program, I am sorry. It really
is a great opportunity with little
cost or risk to you. If you choose
to participate, follow the program
and you will be on your way to
financial security.

If you are a fellow business owner
and are in financial trouble like I
was, or you want to start your own
business, consider this a sign. I
DID!

P.S. Do you have any idea what 11,700
$5 bills ($58,000) look like piled
up on a kitchen table? IT'S AWESOME!

A PERSONAL NOTE FROM THE ORIGINATOR
OF THIS PROGRAM:

By the time you have read the enclosed
program and reports, you should
have concluded that such a program,
and one that is legal, could not
have been created by an amateur.

Let me tell you a little about myself.
I had a profitable business for
10 years. Then in 1979 my business
began falling off. I was doing the
same things that were previously
successful for me, but it wasn't
working. Finally, I figured it out.
It wasn't me, it was the economy.
Inflation and recession had replaced
the stable economy that had been with
us since 1945. I don't have to tell you
what happened to the unemployment rate...
because many of you know from first
hand experience. There were more failures
and bankruptcies than ever before.

The middle class was vanishing. Those
who knew what they were doing
invested wisely and moved up. Those
who did not, including those who
never had anything to save or invest,
were moving down into the ranks of
the poor. As the saying goes, "THE
RICH GET RICHER AND THE POOR GET POORER."
The traditional methods of making money
will never allow you to "move up" or
"get rich", inflation will see to that.

You have just received information
that can give you financial freedom
for the rest of your life, with "NO
RISK" and "JUST A LITTLE BIT OF
EFFORT." You can make more money in
the next few months than you have ever
imagined.

I should also point out that I will not
see a penny of this money, nor anyone
else who has provided a testimonial for
this program. I have already made over 4
MILLION DOLLARS! I have retired from the
program after sending out over 1,600,000
programs. Now I have several offices that
make this and several other programs here
and over seas.

Follow the program EXACTLY AS INSTRUCTED.
Do not change it in any way. It works
exceedingly well as it is now. Remember
to e-mail a copy of this exciting report
to everyone you can think of. One of the
people you send this to may send out
100,000 or more...and your name will
be on everyone of them! Remember though,
the more you send out the more potential
customers you will reach.

So my friend, I have given you the
ideas, information, materials and
opportunity to become financially
independent, IT IS UP TO YOU NOW!

"THINK ABOUT IT"
Before you delete this program from
your mailbox, as I almost did, take
a little time to read it and REALLY
THINK ABOUT IT. Get a pencil and
figure out what could happen when
YOU participate. Figure out the worst
possible response and no matter how
you calculate it, you will still
make a lot of money! You will
definitely get back what you
invested. Any doubts you
have will vanish when your first
orders come in. IT WORKS!

----------------------------
HERE'S HOW THIS AMAZING PROGRAM WILL
MAKE YOU THOUSANDS OF DOLLAR$
----------------------------

INSTRUCTIONS:

This method of raising capital
REALLY WORKS 100% EVERY TIME. I
am sure that you could use up to
$55,000 or more in the next 90
days. Before you say "BULL... ",
please read this program carefully.
This is not a chain letter, but a
perfectly legal money making
opportunity. Basically, this
is what you do: As with all
multi-level businesses, we
build our business by recruiting
new partners and selling our
products. Because of the global
nature of the internet, you will
be able to recruit new multi-level
business partners from all over
the world, and we offer a product
for EVERY dollar sent. YOUR
ORDERS COME BY MAIL AND ARE
FILLED BY E-MAIL, so you are
not involved in personal selling.
You do it privately in your own
home, store or office.

This is the GREATEST Multi-Level
Mail Order Marketing anywhere:

This is what you MUST do:

1. Order all 4 reports shown on
the list below (you can't sell
them if you don't order them).

* For each report, send $5.00 CASH,
the NAME & NUMBER OF THE REPORT YOU
ARE ORDERING, YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS, and
YOUR NAME & RETURN ADDRESS (in case
of a problem) to the person whose
name appears on the list next to the
report. AND MAKE SURE YOUR RETURN
ADDRESS IS ON YOUR ENVELOPE
IN CASE OF ANY MAIL PROBLEMS!

* When you place your order, make
sure you order each of the four
reports. You will need all four
reports so that you can save them
on your computer and resell them.

* Within a few days you will receive,
via e-mail, each of the four reports.
Save them on your computer so they
will be accessible for you to send
to the 1,000's of people who will
order them from you.

2. IMPORTANT-- DO NOT alter the names
of the people who are listed next to
each report, or their sequence on the
list, in any way other than is
instructed below in steps "a"
through "f" or you will lose out
on the majority of your profits.
Once you understand the way this
works, you'll also see how it
doesn't work if you change it.
Remember, this method has been
tested, and if you alter it, it
will not work.

a. Look below for the listing of
available reports.

b. After you've ordered the four
reports, take this advertisement
and remove the name and address
under REPORT #4. This person has
made it through the cycle and
is no doubt counting their $55,000.

c. Move the name and address under
REPORT #3 down to REPORT #4.

d. Move the name and address under
REPORT #2 down to REPORT #3.

e. Move the name and address under
REPORT #1 down to REPORT #2.

f. Insert your name/address in the
REPORT #1 position.

Please make sure you copy every name
and address ACCURATELY!

3. Take this entire letter, including
the modified list of names, and save it
to your computer. Make NO changes to
the instruction portion of this letter.

Your cost to participate in this is
practically nothing (surely you can
afford $20). You obviously already
have an Internet connection and
e-mail is FREE!

To assist you with marketing your
business on the internet, the 4
reports
you purchase will provide you with
invaluable marketing information
which
includes how to send bulk e-mails,
where to find thousands of free
classified ads and much, much more.

In addition you will be provided
with information on Internet
Marketing Clubs such as INTERNET
MARKETING RESOURCES (IMR): This
is one of Internet marketing tools
and services for the Do-It-Yourself-
Internet-Marketer. They will provide
you with free bulk e-mail software
and up to 1,000,000

fresh e-mail addresses each week.
This club will provide you with
hundreds of free resources which
include: How to obtain free web
sites, how to
obtain top rankings in search-engines
for your web-site, how to send bulk
e-mail into AOL and Compuserve, how
to market your products on newsgroups,
free classified ads, electronic malls,
bulletin boards, banner ads and much more.

There are two primary methods of
building your downline:

METHOD #1: SENDING BULK E-MAIL

Let's say that you decide to start small,
just to see how it goes, and
we'll assume you and all those involved
send out only 2,000 programs
each.
Let's also assume that the mailing
receives a 0.5% response. Using a
good list the response could be much
better. Also, many people will send
out hundreds of thousands of programs
instead of 2,000. But continuing with
this example, you send out only 2,000
programs. With a 0.5% response, that
is only 10 orders for REPORT #1.
Those 10 people respond by sending
out 2,000 programs each for a total
of 20,000. Out of those 0.5%, 100
people respond and order REPORT #2.
Those 100 mail out 2,000 programs
each for a total of 200,000.
The 0.5% response to that is
1000 orders for REPORT #3.
Those 1000 send out 2,000 programs
each for a 2,000,000 total. The
0.5% response to that is
10,000 orders for REPORT #4.
That's 11,110 $5 bills for you.
CASH!!! Your total income in this
example is $50 + $500 + $5,000 +
$50,000 for a total of $55,550!!!

REMEMBER, THIS IS ASSUMING 1,990 OUT OF
THE 2,000 PEOPLE YOU MAIL TO WILL DO
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING AND TRASH THIS PROGRAM!
DARE TO THINK FOR A MOMENT WHAT WOULD
HAPPEN IF EVERYONE, OR EVEN HALF SENT OUT
100,000 PROGRAMS INSTEAD OF 2,000. Believe
me, many people will do just that, and more!

REPORT #2 will show you the best methods
for bulk e-mailing, tell you where to
obtain free bulk e-mail software and
where to obtain e-mail

lists and show you how to send out
1,000,000 e-mails for free.

METHOD #2 - PLACING FREE ADS ON THE
INTERNET

1. Advertising on the 'Net is very, very
inexpensive, and there are HUNDREDS of FREE
places to advertise. Let's say you decide
to start small just to see how well it works.
Assume your goal is to get ONLY 10
people
to participate on your first level.
(Placing a lot of FREE ads on the
Internet will EASILY get a larger response.)
Also assume that everyone else in
YOUR ORGANIZATION gets ONLY 6 downline
members. Follow this example to
achieve the STAGGERING results below.

1st level--your 10 members with $5 ($5 x 10).................$50
2nd level--10 members from those 10 ($5 x 100).............$500
3rd level--10 members from those 100 ($5 x 1000)....... $5,000
4th level--10 members from those 1000 ($5 x 10,000).. $50,000
-----------
THIS TOTALS ----------------------$55,550

Remember friends, this assumes that the people
who participate only recruit 10 people each.
Think for a moment what would happen if
they got 20 people to participate! Many people
will get 100's of participants! THINK ABOUT IT!

For every $5.00 you receive, all you must do
is e-mail them the report they ordered. THAT'S
IT! ALWAYS PROVIDE SAME-DAY SERVICE ON ALL
ORDERS! This will guarantee that the e-mail
THEY send out, with YOUR name and address on
it, will be prompt because they can't
advertise until they receive the report!

------------------------------------------
AVAILABLE REPORTS

******* TIPS FOR SUCCESS *******

* TREAT THIS AS YOUR BUSINESS! Be prompt,
professional, and follow the directions
accurately.

* Send for the four reports IMMEDIATELY so
you will have them when the orders start
coming in because:

When you receive a $5 order, you MUST
send out the requested product/report.

* ALWAYS PROVIDE SAME-DAY SERVICE ON
THE ORDERS YOU RECEIVE.

* Be patient and persistent with this
program. If you follow the instructions
exactly, your results WILL BE SUCCESSFUL!

* ABOVE ALL, HAVE FAITH IN YOURSELF AND
KNOW YOU WILL SUCCEED!

******* YOUR SUCCESS GUIDELINES *******

Follow these guidelines to guarantee your success:

If you don't receive 20 orders for
REPORT #1 within two weeks, continue
advertising or sending e-mails until
you do. Then, a couple of weeks later you
should receive at least 100 orders for
REPORT#2. If you don't, continue
advertising or sending e-mails until
you do.

Once you have received 100 or more orders
for REPORT #2, YOU CAN RELAX, because the
system is already working for you, and
the cash will continue to roll in!

THIS IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER:

Every time your name is moved down on
the list, you are placed in front of a
DIFFERENT report. You can KEEP TRACK of
your PROGRESS by watching which report
people are ordering from you. If you
want to generate more income, send
another batch of e-mails or continue
placing ads and start the whole
process again! There is no limit to
the income you will generate from
this business!

FROM THIS PROGRAM IS PURE PROFIT!

7. THIS PROGRAM WILL CHANGE YOUR

******* T E S T I M O N I A L S *******

This program does work, but you must
follow it EXACTLY! Especially the rule
of not trying to place your name in a
different position, it won't work and
you'll lose a lot of potential income.
I'm living proof that it works. It
really is a great opportunity to make
relatively easy money, with little
cost to you. If you do choose to
participate, follow the program
exactly, and you'll be on your
way to financial security. Steven
Bardfield, Portland, OR

My name is Mitchell. My wife, Jody,
and I live in Chicago, IL. I am a
cost accountant with a major U.S.
Corporation and I make pretty good
money. When I received the program
I grumbled to Jody about receiving
"junk mail." I made fun of the whole
thing, spouting my knowledge of the
population and percentages
involved. I "knew" it wouldn't work.
Jody totally ignored my supposed
intelligence and jumped in with both
feet. I made merciless fun of her,
and was ready to lay the old "I told
you so" on her when the thing didn't
work... well, the laugh was on
me! Within two weeks she had received
over 50 responses. Within 45 days she
had received over $147,200 in $5 bills!
I was shocked! I was sure that I had
it all figured and that it wouldn't
work. I AM a believer now. I have
joined Jody in her "hobby." I did
have seven more years until retirement,
but I think of the "rat race" and it's
not for me. We owe it all to
MLM. Mitchell Wolf MD., Chicago, IL

The main reason for this letter is to
convince you that this system is honest,
lawful, extremely profitable, and is a
way to get a large amount of money in
a short time. I was approached
several times before I checked this
out. I joined just to see what one could
expect in return for the minimal effort
and money required. To my astonishment,
I received $36,470.00 in the first 14
weeks, with money still coming in.

Sincerely yours,
Charles Morris, Esq.

Not being the gambling type, it took
me several weeks to make up my mind to
participate in this plan. But conservative
that I am, I decided that the initial
investment was so little that there was
just no way that I wouldn't get enough
orders to at least get my money back. Boy,
was I surprised when I found my medium-size
post office box crammed with orders! For
awhile, it got so overloaded that I had
to start picking up my mail at the
window. I'll make more money this year
than any 10 years of my life before. The
nice thing about this deal is that it
doesn't matter where people live. There
simply isn't a better investment with a
faster return. Paige Willis, Des Moines,
IA

I had received this program before. I
deleted it, but later I wondered if I
shouldn't have given it a try. Of course,
I had no idea who to contact to get
another copy, so I had to wait
until I was e-mailed another program, .
11 months passed then it came...I didn't
delete this one!...I made more than
$41,000 on the first try!! Violet
Wilson, Johnstown, PA

This is my third time participating
in this plan. We have quit our jobs,
and will soon buy a home on the beach
and live off the interest on our money.
The only way on earth that this
plan will work for you is if you do
it. For your sake, and for your family's
sake don't pass up this golden opportunity.
Good luck and happy spending! Kerry Ford,
Centerport, NY
