: This was not the kind of response I was hoping for, from me posting my story, but thanks for the kind response, but I will pass thank you very much on this spamming reply.
: : READING THIS COULD CHANGE YOUR LIFE!!! FAST& EASY!!! ALMOST NO WORK INVOLVED!!! HONEST WORKING PROGRAM!!! LEGAL!!!
: : Here is the original text: I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it. A little while back, I was browsing through newsgroups, just like you are now, and came across an article similar to this that said –y-o-u—c-o-u-l-d--m-a-k-e—t-h-o-u-s-a-n-d-s—o-f—d-o-l-l-a-r-s—w-i-t-h-in-- 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 $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?" Then I invested the measly $6.00. Well GUESS WHAT!! Within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail! I was shocked! I figured it would end soon, but the money just kept coming in. In my first week, I made about $25.00. 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's still growing. This is now my fourth week and I have made a total of just over $42,000.00 and it's still coming in rapidly. It's 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 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 thought possible by doing something so easy! Suggestion: Read this entire message carefully! (Print it out or download it.) It's easy. It's legal. And, your investment is only $6.00 (Plus postage) IMPORTANT:This 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—b-e-c-o-m-e—p-a-r-t—o-f—t-h-e—M-a-i-l--O-r-d-e-r—b-u-s-i-n-e-s-s--. In this business your product is not solid and tangible, it's a service. You are in the business of developing Mailing Lists. Many large corporations are happy to pay big bucks for quality lists. However, the money made from the mailing lists is secondary to the income which is made from people like you and me asking to be included in that list. Here are the 4 easy steps to success: STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on each piece of paper "P-L-E-A-S-E- P-U-T- M-E -O-N- Y-O-U-R- M-A-I-L-I-N-G-L-I-S-T!" 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. 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!

: : #1) Zack Wilkinson 11815 Alden Rd. APT#204, Jacksonville, Fl 32246.
: : #2) Joshua Dartez 4811 Anchor Dr, New Iberia, LA 70560.
: : #3) Tim Chandler 3611 SW 34th Street Apt. #89, Gainesville, FL 32608.
: : #4) Sean Yem 2520 Blossom Circle, Stockton, Ca, 95212.
: : #5) Justin Erickson 25A Lakeshore Dr. Kimberling City, Mo 65686.
: : #6) Christiane Janshen An der Renne 22 , 31139 Hildesheim Germany
: : 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 that you post, the more money you make! 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 yourself 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 their carefully adhering to the directions. Look at it this way, if you are a person 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, either on a computer or hard copy and keep the notes people send you. This VERIFIES that you are truly providing a service. (Also, it might be a good idea to wrap the $1 bill in dark paper to reduce the risk of 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 position you will be receiving thousands of dollars in CASH!!! What an opportunity for only $6.00 ($1.00 for each of the first six people listed above) Send it now, add your own name to the list and you're in business!!! DIRECTIONS FOR 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 computer's memory. STEP 2: Open a blank 'notepad' file 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 text file. If you want to do your postings in different settings, 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 newsgroups 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 receiving money from around the world within days! 1You may eventually want to rent a P.O. Box due to the large amounts coming to you!
: : 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, especially when there are foreign addresses (don’t forget special stamps or air mail if necessary). If you don’t know how to write a foreign address correcty ask someone. Don’t forget to send a letter to all of the addresses .Send your $1 out to everyone on the list, even if they are not from the US. Don’t leave anyone out !!! If there are European addresses including the numbers 7 or 1 then please write the number one exactly like this: 1 and write the number seven exactly like that: 7 because they look different in European handwritting.
: : Now the Why part:
: : This is just an example you might end up with more or less money depending on the number of newsgroups you post in and the number of people joining in.
: : 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. No , 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 MIMIMUM 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 additilonal $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 an 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. So you can afford $ 6.00 and see if it really works?? I think so… People have said,”what if the plan is played out and no one sends you the money? So what! What are the chances of that happening when there are tons of new honest users and new honest people who are joining the Internet and newsgoups everyday and are willing to give it a try? Estimates are at 20,000 to 50,000 new users, every day, with thousands of those joining the actual Internet. Remember play fairly and honestly and this will work. As you see the idea behind this program is in fact very simple. That’ s all I can say about it - now it’s up to you! Good luck!!!
Dear oh dear, another person sucked into Unsolicited mail. People do the same thing with emails and it drives people insane!
It's the same with Unsolicited email or SPAM, they do they same thing. People have shot other people because of Spam in Spain. It's all a marketing trick and if someone put my name on that list I give them a piece of my mind too.
It is legal yes but extremly painful for people who was on the mailing list. You most likely added these people on without THEIR PERMISSION!!!!
PS- Give me the name of the company, me a few other people would like to ask them a few question (Michael Moore tried to interogate companies like this, just thought I would add the fact in)
