      ANYTHING WHATSOEVER? Just read the following:

      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 you could make thousands of pounds 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 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 45.00. By the end of the second week I had made a total of over 340.00! In the third week I had over 900.00 and it's still growing. This is now my fourth week and I have made a total of just over 1,470.00 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 from 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.) Follow the simple directions and watch the money come in! It's easy. It's 100% 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 99% no risk - it really works!
      Please follow these directions EXACTLY, and 5000 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 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 Mailing Lists. Many large corporations are happy to pay big money 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.
      STEP 1: 
      Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on each piece of paper "PLEASE PUT 
      ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST." Now get 6 UK 1.00 coins and place ONE inside EACH of the 
      6 pieces of paper so that the money cannot be seen through the envelope (to prevent theft). 
      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 coin. 

      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 sceptical and a little 
      worried about the legal aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the U.K. Post Office and they 
      confirmed that it is indeed legal. Mail the 6 envelopes to the following addresses:

       1) K. G. Mills
      20 West Bank Road, 
      Tranmere, Wirral, Cheshire.


      2) L. C. McLoughlin
      60 Malpas Drive, 
      Higher Bebington, Wirral, Cheshire.


      3) Mr. B, Bryan
      73 Ash St, Burton on Trent, Staffs, DE14 3PX


      4) D. Biggs
      51 Urlwin Walk, Myatts Field, 
      South London, SW9 6QH,  England.


      5) M. Nunney
      1 Fettledine Road, Irthlingborough,
      Northants, NN9 5XF, UK


      6) V. Curzio

      556 Kingsland Road, London

      E8 4AH


      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 and address as number 6 on the list. 

      STEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as close to original as 
      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 you post, the more money you make! 
      You won't get very much unless you post like crazy.)
      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 honest, 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 

      So, as each post is downloaded and the directions carefully followed, six members will be 
      reimbursed for their participation as a List Developer with 1each. Your name will move up 
      the list geometrically so that when your name reaches the #1 position you will most definitely 
      be receiving hundreds, even thousands of pounds 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! 

      How to post to newsgroups:
      Step 1) You do not need to re-type this entire letter to do your own posting. Simply highlight 
      this document, right click, and select 'copy' from the list . This will copy the entire letter into 
      the computer's memory. 
      Step 2) Open a blank 'notepad' file, right click on the page, then select 'paste' from the list. 
      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 .txt 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 if you like, to try searching for various newsgroups 
      (on-line forums, message boards, etc.) 
      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 list. 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! 

      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 
      P.O.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.
      Now, if 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 MINIMUM 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 
      additional 625.00! 

      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, can 
      you 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 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 really work.
