HOW TO TURN SIX DOLLARS INTO SIX THOUSAND DOLLARS! READING THIS
COULD CHANGE YOUR LIFE! IT DOES WORK!
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 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) Anjali Desai
2021 Guadalupe RM.1912
Austin, TX 78705

#2) M. McMaster
17762 S. Tacoma
Mounds, OK 74047

#3) Joshua Butch
62 Jackson Dr.
Havelock, NC 28532

#4) S. DeJesus
2400 Feathersound Dr. #826
Clearwater, FL 33762

#5) S. Kinney
4979 Edwin Lane
Hayes, VA 23072

#6) Jonathan Steeber
6285 Caldwell Rd. #3
Gladstone, OR 97027

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. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
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 umber 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!

First off, NEVER post anything like that in newsgroups if you value your life. This is a stoning offense.

Second, I have friends who have tried this, and NONE got any money back at all. People simply don't respond to this sort of drivel in the real world. If anybody has ever even thought about this, it's a bad, bad idea.

Right on Lisa! Not only that but in Canada these chain letter things are illegal as far as snail mail goes so even if this is not illegal it is very borderline.

It's a scheme. Many print versions will encourage you to buy a list of addresses of people who are willing to participate in this. This is where people make the real money. They make money from the mailing lists.
