Make Thousands with only $6 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From millionare on 07 July '100
Make Money Fast And Easy In Weeks !!!!!!!!! HOW TO MAKE QUICK CASH IN WEEKS FOR ONLY $6.00!!!!! I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it. A little while back, I was browsing through news groups, just like you are now, and came across an article similar to this that said you will 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 six names and addresses stated in the article. You then place your own name and address in the bottom of the list at $6.00, and post the article in at least 200 news groups. (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 six stamps and $6.00 right, right?" Then I invested the measly $6.00. WELL GUESS WHAT!!!...............Within seven 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 more than $1000.00!! In the third week I had more than $10,000.00 and it's still growing!! This is now my fourth week and I have made a total of $42,000.00 and it's still coming rapidly. It's certainly worth $6.00 and six stamps, but I have spent more than on the lottery!! Let me tell you how this works and most important, why it works..........also make sure you print this out 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 decent; it's legal; and it is virtually no risk - it really works!! If all the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive extraordinary dividends. PLEASE NOTE: Please follow the 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 apart of the Mail Order business. You are in the business of developing Mailing Lists. Many large corporations are happy to pay bug bucks for quality lists. However, the money made from the mailing lists is secondary to income which is made from people like you and me asking to be included in that list. Here are the three easy steps to success: STEP one: Get six separate pieces of paper and write the following on each piece of paper "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST." Now get 6 U.S. $1.00 bills and place ONE inside of EACH of the six pieces of paper so the bill will not be seen through the envelope (to prevent thievery). Next, place one paper in each of the six envelopes and seal them. You now should have six 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 little worried about the legal aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the U.S. Post Office (1-800-125-2161) and they confirmed that it is indeed legal!! Mail the six envelopes to the following addresses: 1) S. Robinson Rt. 16 Box 3090 Tallahassee, FL. 32310 2) R. Lackaii PO Box 10211 Rochester, NY 14610 3) T. Lopez 1462 Stanley Dr. Sandy, Utah, 84093 4) A. H. 1813 e. Houston St Tyler, TX 75702 5) J. Ming 251 E. 1700 S. Salt Lake City, UT 84115 6) Daniel A. 2903 Cambry Crossing ct. Katy, TX 77494 STEP two: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move the other names up (six becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, and etc.) and add YOUR NAME as number 6 on the list. STEP three: 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 news groups. (I think there are close to 54,000 groups) All you need is 200, but remember, the more you post, the more money you make!! 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 directions. Look at it this way. If you were 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, all 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!!! DIRECTIONS FOR HOW TO POST TO NEWS GROUPS!! STEP one: You do not need to retype 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 two: 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 will add your name to the list. STEP three: Save your new notepad file as a txt. File. If you want to do your posting in different settings, you'll always have this file to go back to. STEP four: Use Netscape or Internet explorer and try searching for various new groups (on- line forums, message boards, chat sites, discussions.) STEP five: 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. You're done with your first one!! Congratulations..........THAT'S IT!! All you have to do is jump news groups and post away, after you get the hang of it, and it will take about 30 seconds for each news group. ***REMEMBER THE MORE NEWS GROUPS 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 PO Box due to large amounts of mail you will receive. If you wish to stay anonymous, you can invent another name to use, as long as the postman will deliver it. ***JUST MAKE SURE ALL ADDRESSES ARE CORRECT***
Now the why part: Assume for example you get a 7.5% return, which is very conservative. 1) When you mail 200 letters, 15 people will send you $1.00 2) Those 15 mails out 200 letters, 225 people will mail you $1.00 3) Those 225 mails out 200 letters, 3,375 people will mail you $1.00 4) Those 3,375 mails out 200 letters, 50,625 people will mail you $1.00 5) Those 50,625 mails out 200 letters, 759,375 people will mail you $1.00 By now your name has dropped off the list, but so far you have received at least $759,375.00!! With an original investment of only $6.00!! AMAZING!! When your name is no longer on the list, you take the latest posting in the news groups, and send out another $6.00 to names on the list, putting your name at number 6 again. And start posting again. You have to remember and realize that thousands of people all over the world are joining. HAVE FUN. THIS IS QUICK, EASY, and HONEST. AND ALL IT COSTS IS 6.00 SO make YOURSELF RICH AND SO MANY OTHERS ALL AT ONCE.

Let's not sink to chain letters on this forum. All the hype is just hype. I know, I tried it with my son. We sent letters to 350 people and not a single one, NOT A SINGLE ONE, sent us a cent. We spent well over $100 making copies of the letter, and postage to send it etc. We learned the hard way. Hope you don't have to. This scam has been around for years.
Talk to you later.
