     I read it and said "What the hell."  If I can make a little extra

cash for a $5.00 (actually $6.60 with stamps) investment, I'll give it a

try.  It's like a big team.  If everyone does their part, then we can

all make a buck.  Give it a try and see what happens.  I would think

that the odds are better than the lottery, wouldn't you.  Anyway, this

is the article that I initially read:

     A little while back, I was browsing these newsgroups, just like you

are now, and came across an article like this that said you could make

thousands of dollars within weeks with only an initial investment of

$5.00! So I thought, "Yeah right, this must be a scam!" like most of us,

but I was curious, so I kept reading. Anyway, it said that you send

$1.00 to each of the 5 names and addresses stated in the article. You

then place your own name and address in the bottom of the list at #5 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 5 stamps and $5.00, 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 $5.00.

Well Guess What?! Within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail! I

was shocked! figured it would end soon and didn't give it another

thought. But the money just kept coming in. In my first week, I made

about $20.00 to $30.00. 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 was still growing. This is now my fourth week and I have made a total

of just over $42,000.00--and it is still coming in! It's certainly worth

$5.00 and 5 stamps. I spend 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. The process is simple and consists of 3 easy

steps: STEP 1: Get 5 separate pieces of paper and write the following on

each piece: "Please put me on your mailing list." What you are doing is

creating a service by this. This is perfectly legal! Now get 5 $1.00

bills and place one inside each of the 5 pieces of paper so that the

bill will not be seen through the envelope to prevent thievery. Next,

place one paper in each of the 5 envelopes and seal them. you should now

have 5 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of paper stating the above

phrase and a $1.00 bill. Mail the 5 envelopes to the following


#1 Jamie Van Kooten, 16 Marlborough St, Brampton Ont L6S-2T4

#2 JK Lindsay, 770 Bobby Hope Rd. Rose Hill, NC 28458

#3 M. Mafucci, 3 Hilltop Rd. Bronxville, NY 10708

#4 Joyal Holder  1980 N Snyder Dr.  Richland Center, Wisconsin  53581

#5 D. Garcia PO Box 28096  San Jose, CA 95159

STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move the

other names up (5 becomes 4, 4 becomes 3, etc.) and add your name as #5

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 18,000 groups,

with more new ones everyday.) All you need is 200, but remember, the

more you post, the more money you will make! Don't know how to post

newsgroups? Well, do exactly the following: FOR NETSCAPE USERS: 1) Click

on any newsgroup, like normal. Then click on "To News" which is in the

top left corner of the newsgroup page. This will bring up a message box.

2) Fill in the subject with a flashy title, like the one I

used--something to catch the eye!!! 3) Now go to the message part of the

box and copy this letter exactly as it is here, with the exception of

your few changes. (Remember to add your name to #5 and move the rest

up!) 4) When you're done with the whole letter, click on "FILE" above


SAVE IT! (So you don't have to type this 200 times.) 5) Now that you

have saved the letter, go ahead and send your first copy! (Click the

"SEND" button in the top left corner.) 6) This is where you post all

200! Okay, go to any newsgroup article and click the "TO NEWS" button

again. Type in your flashy subject in the 'SUBJECT BOX", then go to the

message and place your cursor there. Now click on "ATTACHMENT" which is

right below the "SUBJECT BOX." Click on "ATTACH FILE" then find your

letter wherever you saved it. Click once on your file, then click "OPEN"

then click "OK." If you did this right, you should see your filename in

the "ATTACHMENT BOX" and it will be shaded. Now post away!! IF YOU ARE

USING INTERNET EXPLORER: It's just as easy. Holding down the left mouse

button, highlight this entire article, then press the "CTRL" key and the

"C" key at the same time to copy this article. Then print the article

for your records to have the names of those you will be sending $1.00

to. NEXT: Go to the newsgroups and press "POST AN ARTICLE." Then type in

your flashy subject and click the large window below. Press "CTRL" and

"V" and the article will appear in the message window. **Be sure to make

your address changes to the 5 names.** Now re-highlight the article and

re-copy it so you have the changes. Then all you have to do for each

newsgroup is "CTRL" and "V" and press "POST." It's that easy! 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 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 PO Box due to the large amount of mail you

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 #5 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 #4, and only 5 persons

respond to each of the original 5. That's another $25.00 for me. Now

those 25 each make 200 minimum postings with my name at #3 and only 5

reply to each. I will bring in an additional $125.00! Now, those 125

persons turn around and post the minimum 200 with my name at #2 and only

receive 5 replies each, I will make an additional $626.00! Okay, now

here is the fun part. Each of those 625 persons post a minimum 200

letters with my name at #1 and they each only receive 5 replies. That

just made me $3,125.00 with an original investment of only $5.00!

AMAZING! And as I said, 5 responses is actually very low! Average is

probably 20 to 30! So let's put those figures at just 15 responses per

person. Here is what you will make: at #5 - $15.00 at #4 - $225.00 at #3

- $3,375.00 at #2 - $50,625.00 at #1 - $759,375.00 When your name is no

longer on the list, you just take the latest posting and start all over

again. Be honest. If you don't come up with the measly $1.00 per person,

people will know and you won't get much. One guy did that and made only

$150 in eight weeks. Keep track of who sends you money and watch the

newsgroups for those names. GOOD LUCK

This is a repost from me to formally apologize for the above posting.  I had no idea that this was offensive and illegal.  I guess I was na?ve and taken in.  It was my first time posting anything and I thought it would be fun...the responses I have gotten have not been me.  I will post this message with all of the original postings and cancel those that my browser will allow me to cancel.  Thank you for the warnings and the slap on the face.
