HOW TO GET $50,000.00 in 5 weeks or more ( 347,000.00 in 5 months !! )
THERE IS NO LIMIT !!! ........
This is simple, safe, and it really works! For $6 (U.S), 6 stamps, and
about an hour of your time, you could earn a year's salary in a month.
Sounds to good to be true, but just imagine. WHAT IF?
A little while back, I was browsing these 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. Like most of us, I kept reading. Anyway, it said that if you send $1.00 to each of the 6 names and addresses stated in the article, you could make thousands in a very short period of time. You then place your own name and address at the bottom of the list at #6, and post the article to at least 200 newsgroups. (There are about 22,000.) or e-mail them to friends, or e-mailing lists...
No catch, that was it.
Even though the investment was a measly $6, I had three questions that needed to be answered before I could get involved in this sort of thing.
1.IS THIS REALLY LEGAL?
I called a lawyer first. The lawyer was a little skeptical that I would actually make any money but he said it WAS LEGAL if I wanted to try it. I told him it sounded a lot like a chain letter but the details of the system (SEE BELOW) actually made it a legitimate legal business.
2. Would the Post Office be ok with this...?
I called them: 1-800-725-2161 and they confirmed THIS IS ABSOLUTELY LEGAL! (See Title 18,h sections 1302 NS 1341 of Postal Lottery Laws). This clarifies the program of collecting names and addresses for a mailing list.
3. Is this moral?
Well, everyone who sends me a buck has a good chance of getting A LOT of money ... a much better chance than buying a lottery ticket!
So, having these questions answered, I invested EXACTLY $7.92 ... six $1.00 bills and six 32 cent postage stamps ... and boy am I glad I did! Within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail! I was shocked! I still figured it would end soon, and didn't give it another
thought. But the money just continued coming in. In my first week, I made about $20.00 to $30.00 dollars. By the end of the second week I had made a total of $1,000.00! In the third week I had over $10,000.00 and it was 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.....
It's certainly worth $6.00 and 6 stamps!
So now I'm reposting this so I can make even more money! The *ONLY* thing stopping *ANYONE* from enriching their own bank account is pure laziness!
It took me all of 5 MINUTES to print this out, follow the directions, and begin posting to newsgroups. It took me a mere 45 minutes to post to over 200 newsgroups. And for this GRAND TOTAL investment of $ 7.92 (US) and under ONE HOUR of my time, I have reaped an incredible amount of money -- like nothing I've ever even heard of anywhere before!
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 when you need it. The process is very simple
and consists of THREE easy steps.
============ HOW IT WORKS ============
STEP 1: ------ Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on each piece of paper:
Your name and address and the following words
PLEASE ADD ME TO YOUR MAILING LIST. $1 US DOLLAR PROCESSING FEE IS ENCLOSED.
(THIS IS KEY AS THIS IS WHAT MAKES IT LEGAL SINCE YOU ARE PAYING FOR AND LATER OFFERING A SERVICE).
Now get 6 $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 theft/robbery.
Then, 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 and an U.S. $1.00 bill.
(Only U.S. Dollar Bills should be used,so as to maintain uniformity in the system)
Mail the 6 envelopes to the following addresses:
#1 - Eliot M. Colgate University S4742 13 Oak Drive Hamilton NY 13346
#2 - Brett M. 10 Maple Dr. Platteville, WI 53818 USA
#3 - Eri Pelayo 1518 N. Ave 46 #203 Los Angeles, CA 90041
#4 - M Ross 80 Brightwell Road Watford Hertfordshire WD1 8HS ENGLAND
#5- Jess Ponce 4440 Monteagle PL. Los Angeles, CA 90041
#6 - Richard Wilden P.O BOX 1254 North Massapequa, NY 11758 USA
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. (If you want to remain anonymous put a nickname, but the address MUST be correct. It, of course, MUST contain your country, state/district/area, zip code, etc! You wouldn't want your money to fly away, wouldn't you?).
STEP 3: Now post your amended article to at least 200 newsgroups. Remember that 200 postings are just a guideline. The more you post, the more money you make!
Don't know HOW to post in the news groups? Well do exactly the following:
HOW TO POST TO NEWSGROUPS FAST WITH YOUR WEB BROWSER:
The fastest way to post a newsletter: Highlight and COPY (Ctrl-C) the text of this posted message and PASTE (Ctrl-V) it into a plain text editor (as Wordpad) and save it. After you have made the necessary changes that are stated above, simply COPY (Ctrl-C) and PASTE (Ctrl-V)
the text into the message composition window, after selecting a newsgroup, and post it! (Or you can attach the file, without writing anything to the message window.)
If you have Netscape Navigator 3.0 do the following:
1. Click on any newsgroup like normal, then click on 'TO NEWS'. This will bring up a box to type a message in.
2. Leave the newsgroup box like it is, change the subject box to something flashy, something to catch the eye, as "$$$ NEED CASH $$$? READ HERE! $! $! $" Or "$$$! MAKE FAST CASH, YOU CAN'T LOSE! $$$". Or you can use my subject title.
3. Now click on 'ATTACHMENTS'. Then click on 'ATTACH FILE'. Find your file on your Hard Disk (the one you saved from the text editor). Once you find it, click on it and then click 'OPEN' and 'OK'. You should now see your file name in the attachments box.
4. Now click on 'SEND'/'POST'. You see? Now you just have 199 to go! (Don't worry, it's easy and quick once you get used to it.) NOTE: All the versions of Netscape Navigator's are similar to each other, so you'll have no problem to do this if you don't have Netscape Navigator 3.0.
! QUICK TIP!
(For Netscape Navigator 3.x and above)
You can post this message to many newsgroups at a time, by simply selecting a newsgroup near the top of the screen, hold down the SHIFT, and then select a newsgroup near the bottom of the screen. All of the newsgroups in/between will be selected. After that, you follow/do the basic steps, stated below at this letter, except of step #1. You can go to the page stated below in this letter and click on a newsgroup to open up the newsgroups window. Once you've done this, in the same window go to 'OPTIONS', and then mark 'SHOW ALL NEWSGROUPS' and 'SHOW ALL MESSAGES'. Now you can see all the newsgroups and you can apply easier the above tip.
If you have MS Internet Explorer do the following:
1. Go to the newsgroups and press 'POST AN ARTICLE'. To the new window type your headline in the subject area and then click in the large window below. There either PASTE your letter (which it's been copied from the text editor), or attach the file which contains it.
2. Then click on 'SEND' or 'OK'. NOTE: All versions of MS Internet Explorer are similar to each other, so you won't have any problem doing this.
GENERAL NOTES ON POSTING: A nice page where you'll find all the newsgroups if you want help is http://www.liszt.com/ (When you go to the home page, click on the link 'Newsgroup Directory'). But I don't think you'll have any problem posting because it's very easy once you've found the newsgroups. All these web browsers are similar. It doesn't matter which one you have. (But it makes it very easy if you have Netscape Navigator 3.0 or later. You may download it from the Internet if you don't have it.) You just have to remember the basic steps, stated below.
BASIC STEPS FOR POSTING:
1. Find a newsgroup and you click on it.
2. You click on 'POST AN/NEW ARTICLE' or 'TO NEWS' or anything else similar to these.
3. You type your flashy headline in the subject box.
4. Now, either you attach the file containing your amended letter, or you PASTE the letter. (You have to COPY it from the text editor, of course, from before.)
5. Finally, you click on 'SEND' or 'POST' or 'OK', whatever is there.
**REMEMBER, THE MORE NEWSGROUPS YOU POST IN, THE MORE MONEY YOU WILL MAKE! BUT YOU HAVE TO POST A MINIMUM OF 200**
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 large amount of mail you receive. 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 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! And as I said 5 responses is actually VERY LOW! Average are probable 20 to 30! So lets put those figures at just 15 responses per person. Here is what you will make:
at #6 $15.00
at #5 $225.00
at #4 $3,375.00
at #3 $50,625.00
at #2 $759,375.00
at #1 $11,390,625.00
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, "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 Internet. Remember, play FAIRLY and HONESTLY and this will work. You just have to be honest.
By the way, if you try to deceive people by posting the messages with your name in the list and not sending the money to the rest of the people already on the list, you will NOT get as much. Someone I talked
to knew someone who did that and he only made about $150.00, and that's after seven or eight weeks! Then he sent the 6 $1.00 bills, people added him to their lists, and in 4-5 weeks he had over $10k. This is the fairest and most honest way I have ever seen to share the wealth of the world without costing anything but our time! You also may want to buy mailing and e-mail lists for future dollars. Make sure you print this article out RIGHT NOW, also. Try to keep a list of everyone that sends you money And always keep an eye on the newsgroups to make sure everyone is playing fairly. Remember that HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY. You don't need to cheat the basic idea to make the money!
GOOD LUCK to all and please play fairly and reap the huge rewards from this, which is tons of extra CASH. Please remember to declare your extra income. Thanks once again...
LEGAL? ? ? (Comments from Bob Novak who started this new version.)
"People have asked me if this is really legal. Well, it is! You are using the Internet to advertise you business. What is that business? You are assembling a mailing list of people who are interested in home based computer and online business and methods of generating income at home. Remember that people send you a small fee to be added to your mailing list. It is legal. What will you do with your list of thousands of names?
Compile all of them into a database and sell them as "Mailing Lists" on the internet in a similar manner, if you wish, and make more money. How do you think you get all the junk mail that you do? Credit card companies, mail order, Utilities, anyone you deal with through the mail can sell your name and address on a mailing list, unless you ask them not to, in addition to there regular business, So, why not do the same with the list you collect. You can find more info about "Mailing Lists" on the internet using any search engine.
So, build your mailing list, keep good accounts, declare the income and pay your taxes. By doing this you prove your business intentions. Keep an eye on the newsgroups and when the cash has stopped coming (that means your name is no longer on the list), you just take the latest posting at the newsgroups, send another $6.00 to the names stated on the list, make your corrections (put your name at #6) and start posting again.
NOTES: *1. In some countries, the export of the country's exchange is illegal. But you can get the license to do this from the post office, Explaining the above statements (that you have an online business, etc. You may have to pay an extra tax, but that's OK, the amount of the incoming money is HUGE! And as I said, a few countries have that restriction.
*2. You may want to buy mailing and e-mail lists for future dollars. (Or Database or Spreadsheet software.)
*3. If you're really not sure or still think this can't be for real, please print a copy of this article and pass it along to someone who really needs the money, and see what happens.
*4. You should start getting responses within 1-2 weeks.
