This awesome messages explains how to make $50,000 in cash. All you
need is $5! The best part is that it is totally legal. Please read it.
It really works!

Dear Friend,
                My name is Dave Rhodes. In September 1988 my car was reposessed
and the bill collectors were hounding me like you wouldn't believe. I was laid
off and my unemployment checks had run out. The only escape I had from the
pressure of failure was my computer and my modem. I longed to turn my
advocation into my vocation.
                This January 1989 my family and I went on a ten day cruise to
the tropics. I bought a Lincoln Town Car for CASH in Feburary 1989.  I am
currently building a home on the West Coast of Florida, with a private pool,
boat slip, and a beautiful view of the bay from my breakfast room table and
patio. I will never have to work again. Today I am rich! I have earned over
$400,000.00 (Four Hundred Thousand Dollars) to date and will become a
millionaire within 4 or 5 months. Anyone can do the same. This money making
program works perfectly every time, 100% of the time. I have NEVER failed to
earn $50,000.00 or more whenever I wanted. Best of all you never have to
leave home except to go to your mailbox or post office.
                In October 1988, I received a lefter in the mail telling me
how I could earn $50,000 dollars or more whenever I wanted. I was naturally
very skeptical and threw the letter on the desk next to my computer.  It's
funny though, when you are desperate, backed into a corner, your mind does
crazy things. I spent a frustating day looking through the want ads for a job
with a future. The pickings were sparse at best. That night I tried to unwind
by booting up my computer and calling several bulletin boards. I read several
of the message posts and than glanced at the lefter next to the computer. All
at once it came to me, I now had the key to my dreams.
                I realized that with the power of the computer I could expand
and enhance this money making formula into the most unbelievable cash flow
generator that has ever been created. I substituted the computer bulletin
boards in place of the post office and electronically did by computer what
others were doing 100% by mail. Now only a few lefters are mailed manually.
Most of the hard work is speedily downloaded to other bulletin boards
throughout the world. If you believe that someday you deserve that lucky
break that you have waited for all your life, simply follow the easy
instructions below. Your dreams will come true.
Sincerely yours,
Dave Rhodes

INSTRUCTIONS

Follow these instructions EXACTLY, and in 20 to 60 days you will have received
well over $50,000.00 cash, all yours. This program has remained successful
because of the honesty and integrity of the participants. Please
continue its success by carefully adhering to the instructions.
Welcome to the world of Mail Order! This little business is a little different
than most mail order houses. Your product is not solid and tangible, but
rather a service. You are in the business of developing Mailing lists.  Many
large corporations are happy to pay big bucks for quality lists.
(The money made from the mailing lists are secondary to the income which is
made from people like yourself requesting that they be included in that list.)

1) Immediately mail $1.00 to the first 5 (five) names listed below
starting at number 1 through number 5.  Send cash only please (total
investment $5.00).  Enclose a note with each letter stating:
"Please add my name to your mailing list." (This is a legitimate
service that you are requesting and you are paying $1.00 for this
service).

2) Remove the name that appears number 1 on the list.  Move the
other 9 names up one position.  (Number 2 will become number 1 and
number 3 will become number 2, etc.) Place your name, address and
zip code in the number 10 position.

3) Post the new letter with your name in the number 10 position into
10 (Ten) separate bulletin boards in the message base or to the file
section, call the file, MAKE.MONEY.FAST.

4) Within 60 days you will receive over $50,000.00 in CASH.  Keep a
copy of this file for yourself so that you can use it again and
again whenever you need money.  As soon as you mail out these
letters you are automatically in the mail order business and people
are sending you $1.00 to be placed on your mailing list.  This list
can than be rented to a list broker that can be found in the Yellow
Pages for additional income on a regular basis.  The list will
become more valuable as it grows in size.  This is a service.  This
is perfectly legal.  If you have any doubts, refer to Title 18, Sec.
1302 & 1341 of the postal lottery laws.

NOTE:  Make sure you retain EVERY Name and Address sent to you,
either on computer or hard copy, but do not discard the names and
notes they send you.  This is PROOF that you are truely providing a
service and should the IRS or some other Government Agency question
you, you can provide them with this proof!

Remember as each post is downloaded and the instructions carefully
followed, five 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 number five
position you will be receiving thousands of dollars in cash!

The following letters were written by participating members in this
program.

To Whom It May Concern:  About six months ago I received the
enclosed post in letter form.  I ignored it.  I received about five
more of the same letter within the next two weeks.  I ignored them
also.  Of course, I was tempted to follow through and dreamed of
making thousands, but I was convinced it was just another gimmick
and could not possibly work.  I was wrong!  About three weeks later
I saw this same letter posted on a local bulletin board in Montreal.
I liked the idea of giving it a try with my computer.  I didn't
expect much because I figured, if other people were as skeptical as
I, they wouldn't be too quick to part with Five Dollars.  But, I buy
lottery tickets weekly in my province and have nothing to show for
it but ticket stubs.  This week I decided to look at this as my
weekly lottery purchase.  I addressed the envelopes and mailed out
one dollar in each as directed.  Two weeks went by and I didn't
recieve anything in the mail.  The fourth week rolled around and I
couldn't believe what happened!  I can't say I received $50,000, but
it was definitely well over $35,000!  For the first time in ten
years, I got out of debt.  It was great.  Of course, it didn't take
me long to go through my earnings so I am using this excellent money
opportunity once again.  Follow the instructions and get ready to
enjoy.  Please send a copy of this letter along with the enclosed
letter so together we can convince people who are skeptical that it
really works!  Good Luck, Charles Kust
                          St Agathe Que.

Another lefter:  I tried a similar program in which the cost was
$5.00 per response.  In that one the return was about 3%.  Since I
did not have a modem I sent out letters regular mail.  I created a
few mailing labels and printed out all of the labels on pressure
sensitive tape.  The first mailing that I used the $1.00 dollar per
reponse approach I started to get return mail in just over one week!
I sent out 200 letters instead of 100 that is required if you use
the mail instead of the bulletin boards.  Additionally, I included
as many friends, relatives, classmates, that I could think of in
order to encourage their participation if they happened to recognize
my name, so my percentage of gain was higher.  I am trying again
with 500 lefters to see if I surpass the $141,000 of the last time.
You just won't believe it until you try.

Best Wishes, Mark Garner
Dallas Texas

Additional Notes:  This system works equally well if mailed out
manually.  Mind you it takes more effort to hand address the
envelopes and the cost goes up proportionately to cover the postage
and envelopes.  You must also photo copy the instructions, cross out
the name in number one position, write in your name in the number
ten slot and change the rest of the numbers accordingly.  (it might
be neater to use white out or paste over the names.) In order to
achieve the same results you must send out the $1.00 dollar to the
first five names and then send out another 100 letters with copies
of the program enclosed.  It has been suggested not to put a return
address on the outside of the envelope in order to encourage the
recipient to open it.  The return will approximate that then
received from the posts listed on the bulletin boards.

Hello, my name is Steve Peester.  As you may have noticed I'm the
tenth name on this list, so I do not have a rags-to-riches story to
tell here.  However, I did make a phone call to the 2nd name on this
list, Ernest Goyette.  Did he have a rags to riches story to tell?
Not exactly, but then I found out that he did not follow the
instructions precisely.  You see, Ernest lost faith in the program
before he had finished following instructions.  He only uploaded
this file on one BBS, which happens to be operated by Darryl
McGinnis, the 3rd name on this list.  Ernest told

These mailings are highly illegal.  I know for a FACT that anybody
caught sending chain-letters from Cornell accounts will lose ANY and
ALL computer access privileges.  Now, do you want to believe me or
this ***?

What do you have to lose?  A hell of a lot more than $10, especially
if your major happens to depend on computer access.

Participating in these schemes is unprofitable, illegal, and STUPID.
So go ahead and do it.  From the signal-to-noise ratio in this group,
there are surely a few suckers...

Or how about forwarding it to the server at U. Illinois, Urbana-Champaign? I'm
sure that they would frown upon the use of their systems for such hare-brained
schemes. ANyone got the e-mail address?

Not bad, except the USPS only deals with the US Mail. They probably
couldn't care less about the Internet. I prefer the "nice note to the
postmaster" idea, personally. This thing has been making the rounds
for so long now in so many newsgroups, though, that I've been thinking
about organizing a posse of 30 or 40 people and putting our names at
the top and mailing them to the bozo's postmaster.
It's probably not a good idea, though. While it might feel good
temporarily (and maybe make a couple of bucks from clueless admins),
most admins don't deserve it. I've gotten good results from polite
notes, though, and do recommend that method highly.


They brought me up with the Brooklyn Dodgers,
which at that time was in Brooklyn.

listen.  here's what i do.

whenever i see one of these things, i send the postmaster
 of the site a nice polite note, saying "such and such person
 has posted this chain letter on such and such groups".

most postmasters will suspend the account for a decent
 period of time.

line:

      "Is this considered acceptable on your system?"

Anyone got the address of the other guy who posted it a week ago?  I only
remember that is was a business.

last step: create new group - i.got.kicked.off.the.net.for.posting.scams

List the jerks as examples to others.

I thought chain letters are illegal? Why the hell is this on the Net?
Is that a police siren I hear?
