$50,000 for only $5 in two months?  You gotta be crazy!  How can you 
make $50,000 for only $5?  Well, that's what I was wondering too until
I came across this letter.

First of all, IT'S PERFECTLY LEGAL!  (Call 1-800-725-2161) if you have
any questions about the following opportunity to make $50,000.00 and 

Well, here it goes:  A little while back, I was browsing these 
newsgroups, just like you are now, and came across an article similar 
to 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 joke," but like most of us I was curious, so I kept reading.
Anyway, it said that you send $1.00 to each of the 5 names and address 
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.

As I mentioned before, 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!

What are the basics of each system and why are they legal?  Each system
follows the same basic steps which define a business by offering others
the ability to get involved using the system you advertise in newsgroups
on the Internet and accepting a small fee for the requests of those who
respond to be added to your mailing list.  Yes, you will be in the 
business of creating your own mailing list.  Their requests to be added
to your mailing list which is sent with a $1 fee for your service define
a legal business opportunity under U.S. Postal and Lottery Laws --- a 
legal business opportunity for you which is covered in title 18, 
sections 1302 and 1342 of the U.S. Postal and Lottery Laws.

Now, what one does, or does not do, with the mailing list being 
constructed is a personal decision.  One could decide to do nothing 
with this list, to use it as a tool in building another business or 
expanding an existing business.  This decision is up to the creator of
the mailing list -- this decision is up to you.

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 very simple and
consists of 3 easy steps:

STEP 1:  Get 5 separate pieces of paper and write the following on each
piece of paper "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST."  Now get 5  $1.00
bills and place ONE inside EACH of the 5 pieces of paper so 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.  What you are doing is creating a service by this. 
THIS IS PERFECTLY LEGAL!  Mail the 5 envelopes to the following

#1 J. A. Hernandez
   6690 Lucia Ln. #7
   Fridley, MN  55432-4642

#2 G. Duchacek
   1825 Lee Janzen Drive,
   Kissimmee Bay,
   Kissimmee, FL. 347347

#3 T. Roberts
   4810 Meadow Lark Lane
   Paso Robles,  CA  93446-4220

#4 D. Wild
     32 Ridgeview Circle
     Milan, Oh  44846

#5 Smith
   935 E. South
   Independence, MO 64050

STEP 2:  Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move the
other names up (2 becomes 1, 3 becomes 2, etc.....) and add YOUR Name 
as number 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. (There are over 35,000 groups with more being 
added all the time) All you need is 200, but remember, the more you 
post, the more money you make! Don't know HOW to post in the newsgroups?
Well do exactly the following:

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 retype this letter exactly
as it is here, with exception of your few changes. (remember to add your
name to number 5 and move the rest up)

4) When your done typing in the WHOLE letter, click on 'FILE' above the
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! OK, 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 here. 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. 

It's just as easy, holding down the left mouse button, highlight this
entire article, then press the 'CTRL' key and '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.

Go to the newsgroups and press 'POST AN ARTICLE' 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 about 30 seconds for each

That's it! You will begin receiving 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 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 

Now the WHY part:  This entire principle works because it is in a format
of an upside down tree with thousands of branches. Everyone below you 
will see to it that the tree continues because they want to get money. 
Those below THEM will continue because THEY want to get the cash etc.  
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 
ith my name at #4 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 #3 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 #2 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 of 200 letters with my name at #1 and they
each only receive 5 replies, that just made me $3,125.00!!! With a
original investment of only $5.00!  AMAZING! And as I said 5 responses
is actually VERY LOW!  Average is probable 20 to 30! So lets 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

Your name is no longer on the list, you just take the latest posting in
the newsgroups, and send out another $5.00 to names on the list, putting
your name at number 5 and start posting again.  The thing to remember is
that thousands of people all over the world are joining the Internet and
reading these articles everyday, JUST LIKE YOU are now!! And this will
go on and on and on and on.... get the picture? Well, there's over
5,000,000,000 people on the world and most of them will eventually end
up being hooked into the Internet. So  there are virtually unlimited
resources. Of course this will work the best at the very beginning so
the faster you post, the better for YOU!

So can you afford $5.00 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 newsgroups 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. You just have to be honest.  Make sure you
print this article out RIGHT NOW, also. Try to keep a list of everyone
that sends you money and always keep an eye on the newsgroups to make
sure everyone is playing fairly.

Remember, HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY. You don't need to cheat the basic
idea to make the money!!  GOOD LUCK to all and please play fairly and
reap the huge rewards from this, which is tons of extra CASH. **By the
way, if you try to deceive people by posting the messages with your name
in the list and not sending the money to the rest of the people already
on the list, you will NOT get as much. Someone I talked to knew someone
who did that and he only made about $150.00, and that's after seven or
eight weeks! Then he sent the 5 $1.00 bills, people added him to their
lists, and in 4-5 weeks he had over $10k. This is the fairest and most
honest way I have ever seen to share the wealth of the world without
costing anything but our time!!! You also may want to buy mailing and
e-mail lists for future dollars.  Please remember to declare your extra
income.   Thanks once again.
