Making Money Fast Simplegreenspun.com : LUSENET : The JFK Zone Forum : One Thread
:Hello,with LOVE and PEACE : A 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 CASH within weeks with only an initial : investment of $6.00 plus stamps! So I thought, "Yeah, right, this must be a scam!" But like most of : us I was curious and kept reading. It said that if you send $1.00 to each of the 6 names and : addresses listed 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 300 : newsgroups. (There are about 32,000 of them out there and that's quite a large market pool). 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 CASH 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. IS IT OK WITH THE POST OFFICE OR IS IT MAIL FRAUD? I called them: 1-800-725-2161 and they : confirmed THIS IS ABSOLUTELY LEGAL! (See 18, sections 1302 NS 1341 of Postal Lottery Laws). This : clarifies the program of collecting names and addresses for a mailing list.
: 3. IS IT RIGHT? Well, everyone who sends me a buck has a good chance of getting A LOT of CASH ... : 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 CASH in the mail! I : was shocked! I figured it would end soon and didn't give it another thought. But the CASH continued : coming in. In my first week I made between $20 to $30. 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 and it's still coming in..... It's certainly : worth $6.00 and 6 stamps!!!
: 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 : CASH 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 CASH 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 there is virtually 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 : CASH made from the mailing lists is secondary to the income that 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). Place one paper in each of the : 6 envelops 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) Praveen Kalla, 1818 Irish Way, South Bend, IN-46637 : #2) Hichem Souahi, 204 Gillespie, Sherbrooke, Quebec, J1H 4X3 CANADA : #3) Fakhzan Firdaus, 19 Jalan 18/41A, 40200 Shah Alam, Selangor, MALAYSIA : #4) X. Zhang, PO Box 6612 Lancaster, CA 93534 : #5) J.Stroud, 1516 Reavis Rd Yadkinville, NC 27055 : #6) KUSHEBA, 14-5983 Srances street Burnaby, B.C V5B 4Z4 CANADA : 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 the original as : possible. Now, post your amended article to at least 300 newsgroups. (I think there are close to : 32,000 groups) All you need is 300, but remember, the more you post, the more CASH you make! : This is : perfectly legal! If you have any doubts, refer to Sec. 18 1302 NS & 1341 of the Postal lottery laws. : Keep a copy of these steps for yourself and, whenever you need CASH, 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 them carefully adhering to the directions. Look at it this way. If you are a : person of integrity, the program will continue and the CASH that so many others have received will : come your way. NOTE: You may want to retain every name and addresses 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 CASH 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!
: ---DIRECTIONS ----- FOR HOW TO POST TO NEWSGROUPS
: 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 letter, 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 the 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!
: **REMEMBER, THE MORE NEWSGROUPS YOU POST IN, THE MORE CASH YOU WILL MAKE!! BUT YOU : HAVE TO POST A : MINIMUM OF 300**
: That's it! You will begin receiving CASH from around the world within days! You may eventually want : to rent a P.O. Box due to the large 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 it. **JUST MAKE SURE ALL THE : ADDRESSES ARE CORRECT.**
: Now the WHY part: Out of 300 postings, say I receive only 7 replies (a very low example). So then I : made $7.00 with my name at #6 on the letter. Now, each of the 7 persons who just sent me $1.00 : make : the MINIMUM 300 postings, each with my name at #5 and only 7 persons respond to each of the 7 : original 7, that is another $49.00 for me, now those 49 each make 300 MINIMUM posts with my : name at : #4 and I get 7 replies each, I will bring in an additional $343.00! Now, those 343 persons turn : around and post the MINIMUM 300 with my name at #3 and only receive 7 replies each, I will make an : additional $2401.00! OK, now here is the fun part, each of those 2401 persons post a MINIMUM 300 : letters with my name at #2 and they each only receive 7 replies, that just made me $16,807.00!!! : Those 16807 persons will all deliver this message to 300 newsgroups with my name at #1 and if 7 : persons per 300 Newsgroups react I will receive : $117,649.00! With an original investment of only $6.00! And some stamps. 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, "what if the plan is played out and no one sends you : the CASH? 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 really work.
: By the way, if you try to deceive people by posting the messages with your name in the list and : not sending the CASH 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 : CASH. Make sure you print this article out RIGHT NOW! Also, try to keep a list of everyone that sends : you CASH and always keep an eye on the newsgroups to make sure everyone is playing fairly. : Remember, : HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY. You don't need to cheat the basic idea to make CASH!! 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...
: "People have asked me if this is really legal. Well, it is! You are using the Internet to advertise : your business. What is that business? You are creating a mailing list of people who are interested in : home-based computer and online business and methods of generating income at home. Remember, : 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? That's up to you." 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 star 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 CASH 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 CASH. (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 give it to someone who : really needs the CASH, and see what happens. *4. You will start getting responses within 1-2 weeks.
: ***ALSO REMEMBER*** SEND YOUR $1 OUT TO EVERYONE ON THE LIST, EVEN IF THEY ARE NOT : FROM THE U.S. BY : DOING SO, YOU'RE EXPANDING YOUR BUSINESS TO THE ENTIRE WORLD AND SECURING YOURSELF : AN EVEN LARGER : INCOME.
: WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??? $$$!!! $$$!!! $$$!!! $$$!!! $$$!!! $$$!!! $$$!!! $$$!!! $$$!!!
: GOOD LUCK!!!
