    Make Some money

    I came across this ad and it actually works. I needed a way to make money so I tried this. It has an initial cost of 6 dollars, but actually works.
    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? 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! Then I invested the
    measly $6.00. 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.
    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 by this. THIS IS
    ABSOLUTELY LEGAL! Mail the 6 envelopes to the following
    addresses:
    #1) Jimmy Rice, 306 Ridgeview Road Princeton, NJ 08540
    $2) Jeremy Reid, 1619 E. 11, Winfield, KS 67156
    #3) Bryan Wax, 1739 A Ave, Emerson, IA 51533
    #4) Mike Peplow 3756 S. GoldRdige Dr., Magna, UT 84044
    #5) Terelle Rahming, Nassau, Bahamas, P.O. BOX EE-17369
    #6) Gary Johnson 2927 Ironwood DR. Nashville TN,37214
    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!
    DIRECTIONS ---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 computers memory.
    Step 2) Open a blank "notepad" file under accessories in windows
    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 sittings, 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 newsgroupes 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 reciving 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 the WHY
    part: Out of 200 postings, say I receive
    only 5 replies (a very low example). So then I made $5.00
    with my name at #6 on the letter. 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 $626.00! 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 a
    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!!

    Hmm. Sounds like an illegal pyramid scheme!

    Not a good thing to post here, probably will get you banned.
