does anyone have valid information about this. I'm desparatly in need of money for school. please let me know Thank you IT'S SIMPLE AND IT'S LEGAL!!!!!!! I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it a little while back, I was browsing through news groups just as you are right now and came across a article similar to this saying that you could make thousands of dollars within weeks with only an initial investment of $6.00!! So, I thought yeah right. This must be a scam, but like most of us, I was curious, so I kept reading. Anyway, it said that you send one dollar to each of the six names and addresses stated in the article. You then delete the first address and change the numbers. ( 2 becomes 1, 3 becomes 2, etc.) place your own name and address on the bottom of the list at number 6 and post the article to at least 200 newsgroups. (there are thousands) No catch that was it. Therefore, after talking to a few people and thinking it over I decided to try it. What do I have to lose except 6 stamps and $6.00 right? Then I invested the measly six dollars. WELL GUESS WHAT!!! Within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail!!! I was shocked. I thought it was going to stop but it just kept coming. In my first week, I made $25.00. By the end of the second week, I had $900.00. In the end of the third week, I made $5,000.00!!! It's still growing right now. This is now my fourth week and I have made a total of just over $38,000.00! Moreover, it's still coming in rapidly. This is certainly worth $6.00 and 6 stamps. I have spent more than that on the lottery!! Let me tell you how this works and most importantly why it works. Also make sure that you print a copy of this article NOW so you can get the information off of it as you need it. I promise you that if you follow the directions exactly, that you will start making more money than you possibly thought just by doing something so easy!! SUGGESTION: READ THIS ENTIRE MESSAGE CAREFULLY (Print it out or down load it) Follow the simple directions and watch the money come in! It's easy. It's legal. And your investment is only $6.00 (plus postage) IMPORTANT: This is not a rip off; it is not indecent; it is not illegal; and it is virtually 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 can be yours in 20 to 60 days. This program remains successful because of the honesty and integrity of the participants. Please continue its success by carefully adhering to the instructions. You will now become a part of the mail order business. In this business, your product is not solid and tangible, it's a service. You are in the business of developing a mailing list. Many large corporations are happy to pay big bucks for quality list. However, the money made from the mailing list is secondary to the income, which is made from people like you and me asking to be included to that list. Here are the four steps to success: STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper write the following on each piece of paper "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST." Now get 6 us 1dollar bills and place ONE inside EACH of the six 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. MAKE SURE THERE ARE ENOUGH STAMPS ON YOUR ENVELOPES. 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. 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 indeed legal!!!!! Mail the six envelopes to the following addresses. #1) Salem Nemo P.O. Box 82 Aquashicola, PA 18012 #2) Tremay Springer 5405 Pohopoco Rd. Lehighton, PA 18235 #3) Dawn Agyei 881 Lafayette Ave Apt 4 Cinti OH 45220 #4) Maribel Alvarez 5045 W. 24th St. Apt. B, Cicero, IL. 60804 #5) Hang Saver 200 Burk Way, Oklahoma city, Ok 73115 #6) Jennifer Leal 3700 N Campbell Apt. 1119, Tucson, AZ 85719 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 original as possible. Now post your amended article to at least 200 news groups. ( I think there are 24,000 groups) All you need is 200, but remember, the more you post , the more money you make!** EVERYBODY AROUND THE WORLD CAN DO THIS BUT REMEMBER TO PUT ENOUGH STAMPS ON YOUR ENVELOPES!!!!** This is perfectly legal! If you have any doubts, refer to title 18 sec. 1302 & 1341 of the postal lottery laws. Keep a copy of these steps for your self and whenever you need money, 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 carefully adhering to the directions. Look at it this way, if you are of integrity, the program will continue and the money that so many others have received will come your way. NOTE: You may want to retain every name and address sent to you, on either a computer or a hard copy and keep the notes people sent you. This verifies that you are truly providing a service. (Remember to wrap the $1 bill in the note to prevent mail theft.) So, as each post is downloaded and the directions carefully followed, six 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 #1 spot you will be receiving thousands of dollars in CASH!!!!! What an opportunity for only $6.00 ($1 for each of the six people listed above) Send it now, add your own name to the list and you're in business!

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 THE ADDRESS IS CORRECT** Let me break it down, say I receive only 5 replies, so then I made $5 with my name at #6 on the letter. Now each of the 5 persons who just sent me $1 made the MINIMUM 200 postings, each with my name at #5 and only 5 people respond to the original 5 people. That is another $25 for me. Now those 25 people make the MINIMUM 200 post with my name at number 4 and only 5 replies each, I will make $125. Now, those 125 people post the MINIMUM 200 postings with my name at #3 and only get 5 replies each, I will make an additional $626! Ok, now here's the fun part each of those 625 people post a MINIMUM 200 with my name at #2 ant they only get 5 replies that just made me $3,125!!! Those 3125 people send a MINIMUM 200 postings and they only get 5 replies each with my name at #1, I will receive $15,625!!! With an original investment of $6!!!! AMAZING!!!! . When your name is no longer on the list, you just take the latest postings in the news groups and send out another $6 to names on the list putting yourself at #6 and start posting again. Thousands of people are joining the internet each day and they are reading articles like these just as you are right now. So this can never be played out just keep it going and you can make tons of money too!!!! Remember, play FAIRLY and HONESTLY and this will really work. You wouldn't want someone to cheat you the same way you may be cheating.
