    Hello,
    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 postage) IMPORTANT: This is
    not a
    rip-off; it is not indecent; it is not illegal; and it is 99% 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 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
    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) A.Shamach 1081 Rocky Harbour Crescent, k1v 1v4, Ottawa
    ON #2) K.Hurls, 3908 Ardmore St, Silver
    Springs, NV 89429 #3) R.Fowler, 60 Hemlock Haven, Hampton, NH 03842
    #4) D. Fryar, 30219 Turriff Circle,
    Magnolia, Tx 77354 #5) K.Wicker, P.O. Box 51, Auxier, Ky 41602 #6) B. kyle,
    1069 Rocky Harbour Crescent, k1v 1v3, Ottawa ON
    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 make! You won't get very much unless you post like crazy.
    :) 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! 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 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, 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 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 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, 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 $625.00! 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, "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
    really
    work!!!

    Ahh, the old pyramid post office scheme. I love it when the old
    classics refuse to die. He ought to graduate to the Nigeria 419 scam.
    There's more money in it (grin)

    Ahhh... the classic "Make Money Fast" scam. Hey, the Nigerian 419 scams
    have been going for awhile and don't stop, and this one predates the
    Nigerian scams by years.

    you know what this means? We will NEVER get rid of the Nigerian scams.

    this one predates the
    Nigerian scams by years. >

    My Grandmother told me that what were termed 'chain letters' were common
    when she was a girl. So as soon as postal rates became cheap enough for the
    majority, they started. So, far from predating the Nigerian scams by years,
    they were around 80 years ago.
