> 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 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. Mail the 6 envelopes to the
> following addresses: #1) Jordan Drucker 8 Brook Ln. Brookville, NY
> 11545 #2) D. Rose 2765 Matthews Ave. Apt #1C Bronx, NY 10467 #3) M.
> Hooper 26670 Loganberry Dr. #A209 Richmond Hts, OH 44143 #4)C. Davis
> 4590D Vlly Pkwy Smyrna, GA 30082 #5) Dan Fallak 33C Northview Rd
> Nepean, ON, Canada, K2E 6A6. #6) Rob Foubert 25 Doverdale Mews S.E.
> Calgary Alberta Canada T2B 1V8 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 you post, the more money you make! You won't get
> very much unless you post like crazy. 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 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

> 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

> 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!
> 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. **JUST MAKE SURE ALL THE
> THOUSANDS!! 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.
> Now, 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
