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
#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!
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
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
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
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
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!!

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