A while back, I was browsing these newsgroups, just like you are now,
: and came across
: n article to this that said you could make thousands of CASH within
: week with only an
: initial investment of $12.00 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 $6.00 to each
: of the 2 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 #2, and post the article to at least 100 newsgroups. (There are
: about 32,000 of them
: out there and thats quite a large market pool). No catch, that was it.
: Even though the
: investment was a measly $12. 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
: 2. IS 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, h
: 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 $12.68... two
: $6.00 bills and two 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 didnt 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 a 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 havemade a total of just over $42,000 and
: its still coming in ..... Its certainly worth $12.00 and 2
: stamps!!!Also, make sure you print a copy of this article NOW, so you
: can get information off of it as you need it. I promise you that if you
: follow the directions exactly, that you will startmaking more CASH than
: you thought possible by doing
: something so easy!
: Suggestion: Read this entire message carefully! (print it out or
: download it.) Follow thesimple directions and watch the CASH come in!
: Its easy. Its legal. And yourinvestment is only $12.00(plus
: postage)IMPORTANT: This is NOT a rip-off; it is NOT indecent; it is NOT
: ; and it isvirtually 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 could be yours in
: a matter of days. This program remains successful because of the
: honesty and integrity of the participants. Please continue its success
: by carefully adhering to the instructions. Youwill now become part of
: the Mail Order Business. In this business your product is notsolid and
: tangible, its 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 CASHmade
: 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 2 separate pieces of paper and write
: the following on each piece of paperPLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST.
: Now get $12.00 and place them in the evelopes with both pieces of
: paper so the bill will
: not be seen through the envelope (to prevent thievery). Place one paper
: in each of the envelopes and seal them. You should now have both sealed
: envelopes, each with a piece of paper stating the abovephrase, your
: name and address, and 6.00$ in each. 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 legal! Mail both envelopes to the following
: #1)jennifer sparling
3445 knoll lane apt.215
colorado springs CO. 80917
5315 Turquoise Dr.
Colorado Springs CO. 80918
: STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move the
: other names up(2 becomes 1), and add YOUR name as
: number 2 on the list.STEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to
: keep this article as close to original aspossible. Now, post your
: amended article to at least 100 newsgroups. (I think there are close to
: 32,000 groups) All you need is 100, but remember, the more you post the
: moreCASH you make! This is
: perfectly legal! If you have any doubts, ref to 18 Sec. 1302 &1341 of
: the Postal lottery laws. Keep a copy of these steps for yourself and,
: 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 their 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 address sent to you, either on a computer or hard copy and
: keep the noted
: people send you. This VERIFIES that you are truly providing a service.
: (Also, it might
: be a good idea to wrap the $6 dollars in dark paper to reduce the risk of
: mail theft.) So, as
: each post is downloaded and the directions carefully followed, both
: members will be
: reimbursed for their participation as a List Developer with six dollars
: 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 $12.00
: ($6.00 for each of the first two people listed above) Send it now, add
: your own name to
: the list and youre in business!

: Step 4) Use Netscape of Internet explorer and try searching for various
: (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
: posting in a particular
: group, click the post message on.
: Youre done with your first one! Congratulations... THATS 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 100**
: Thats 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.**
. 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 $12.00 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 thats after seven or eight weeks! Then he sent the 2 adress with six dollars
: 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
: out 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 lest of
: every one that
: sends you CASH and always keeps an eye on the newsgroups or make sure
: everyone is
: playing fairly. Remember, HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY. You dont need to
: the basic idea to make the 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. That 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?
: Thats 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 #2) and start
: posting again.
: *1. In some countries, the export of the countrys exchange is .
: 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 thats OK,
: the amount of the
: incoming CASH is HUGE! And as I said, a few countries have that
: *2. You may want to buy mailing and e-mail lists for future CASH. (Or
: Database or
: Spreadsheet software.)
: *3. If youre really not sure or still think this cant be for real,
: please print a copy of this
: article and give it to someone who really needs the CASH, and see what
: *4. You will start getting responses within 1-2 weeks, it depends.
