ONLY $6 : LUSENET : Art Deco Society of Washington : One Thread

IT'S SIMPLE AND IT'S LEGAL, YOU JUST NEED TO READ THE ENTIRE MESSAGE AND TO TAKE ACTION, NOTHING MORE!!!!!!! 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 as 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!!! 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) Hang Saver 200 Burk Way, Oklahoma city, Ok 73115 #2) John Steiner P.O. Box 15160, San Francisco, CA 94115-5160 #3) Reeser Davis P.O. Box 28873, Raleigh, NC 27611 #4) Sandi Handley 500 Webster Rd Lot 359, Auburn, AL 36832 #5) D. Cebero P.O. Box 570143, Miami, FL 33257-0143 #6) Tanya Doyal P.O. Box 652, Crowell, TX 79227 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!

THE MORE MONEY YOU WILL MAKE!! BUT YOU HAVE TO POST A MINIMUM OF 200. That's it! ANOTHER WAY TO SEND THIS MESSAGE IS TO SEND IT THROUGH EMAIL: Get a list of at least 200 email addresses.

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.

So this can never be played out just keep it going and you can make tons of money too!!!! Please try it now and make big bucks in a few short weeks!!!!!!

PAYPAL IS A GREAT MONEY MAKER!!! From: Mr. Holland Date: 16 Mar 2004 Time: 17:40:18 Remote Name:

You have most likely seen or heard about "The Letter" $5.00 program that was recently televised on 20/20, OPRAH WINFREY and an article published in the Wall Street Journal on 6/16/2001. If not, here it is!!!

Everyone has heard about "PayPal" (if you haven't you will soon) and, when I came across this concept I knew it would work because, as a member of PayPal, I had already experienced their efficiency and excellent standing. PayPal is the simplest method of making and receiving payments online anyone has ever seen! Anyone with an email address can join, for FREE! Please read further before you go there... You can complete this whole process in less than one hour and you will never forget the day you decided to do so!!! Oh!, Did I say FAST? By fast I mean 'the speed of the Internet-type fast.' Everything is done on the Internet by E-mail. And, if you abide by the rules, it is NOT considered SPAM, so it's perfectly legal!


If you're not already a user, the very first thing you need to do is go to PayPal and SIGN UP. It takes two minutes and PayPal will deposit $5.00 in your account once you start using it. That makes this program FREE!



Then...... SEND a $5.00 payment from your PayPal Account ($5.00 you can earn back from Paypal, which makes this program FREE!) to the FIRST email address in this letter (No.1) along with a note saying "Please add me to your mailing list." BE PREPARED TO GET EXCITED.... YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!!! Don't laugh! Try this while you wait for the others to start working. One half hour of work to get started - no mailing lists, no printing, copying or waiting and the concept is 100% legal. (refer to US Lottery Laws, Title 18, Section 1302 and 1341, or Title 18, Section 3005 in the US code, also in the code of Federal Regulations, Volume 16, Sections 255 and 436, which state a product or service must be exchanged for money received). This version has nothing to do with Postal Laws, as it's EMAIL ONLY.

Here's How It Works. Unlike many other PayPal programs, this THREE LEVEL PROGRAM costs only $5, that's right, only $5 ONCE, which is much more realistic and much, much faster results. No cheating can occur (Don't be fooled by other PayPal letters that mention cheaters) as Paypal only allows One Account per person. Because it is so easy, the response rate is VERY HIGH, VERY FAST-Internet E- mail FAST, and you will start seeing results in less than one week! JUST IN TIME FOR NEXT MONTHS BILLS! You need only mail out 20 copies to start with. Start right away, and send to personal contacts and reply to people who send their programs to you as they are already working on the web. They know these programs work and they are already believers in the system! This is NOT considered SPAM if you are responding to people or sending to friends.

Once you have paid the $5 to the number one (No.1) email position, please send an email to the (No.3) position, with "THANKS I'VE JOINED" in the subject (topic) area, and I'll send you a copy of the "Follow Up Letter" that is FULL of TIPS and HINTS on where to obtain THOUSANDS of spam free email addresses to send to, where to find free web based email accounts to send your emails from, instructions on how not to lose a web based email account and much, much MORE!!

This program is MUCH, MUCH FASTER and has a HIGHER RESPONSE RATE than any other program! Even if you are already in another program, stay with it, but do yourself a favor and DO THIS ONE as well. START RIGHT NOW!

It's simple and will only cost $5.00 max. It will pay off long before others even begin to receive letters! Just give ONE person a $5.00 gift (REMEMBER THOUGH, this $5.00 is the $5.00 YOU GET BACK WHEN YOU START USING YOUR new PayPal Account). That's all!! If you already have a PayPal Account, please still donate a $5.00 GIFT to the person in the No.1 spot and add your name on the list at No.3 position, having moved up the remaining two. Follow the simple instructions and in two weeks you will have approximately $20,000 in your PayPal Account!

Because of the VIRTUALLY ZERO INVESTMENT, SPEED, and HIGH PROFIT POTENTIAL, this program has a VERY HIGH RESPONSE RATE! All from just one $5.00 transaction that you can get back from PayPal!!!

Follow These Simple Instructions:

Once you link to the Paypal site using the link above, open your PayPal Account, and E-mail the $5.00 payment to the FIRST name on the list (No.1) along with a "note" in the NOTE AREA of that page, saying "SUBSCRIBE ME TO YOUR MAILING LIST". Be certain to add this note, as this is what KEEPS THIS LETTER LEGAL. Instructions on how to send a payment are under "SEND MONEY" at the Paypal Site. It's Soooo Easy!!

Only the first person on the list gets your $5.00 gift.

Edit the list, REMOVING the FIRST (No.1) EMAIL ADDRESS FROM THE LIST after you have made the $5 payment. Then, move the other two email addresses UP and ADD YOUR PAYPAL EMAIL ADDRESS in the (No.3) position. Don't try to add your name in the first place in order to earn money fast! If you do that, you will ONLY reach people you send e- mail to then your name will be immediately removed from the No.1 place and you won't reach thousands of people! But, if you add your name on the (No.3) place, there will be millions of people receiving and sending e-mail's later, when your name is (No.1)!!!

Send out 20 copies (minimum) of this letter, but only to people you know, or respond to MLM offers. Once you've paid the person in the (No.1) position, be sure to email the person in the (No.3) position with "Thanks, I've Joined" as a topic in the reply. You will then receive a follow up letter that is full of SPAM free hints and tips to insure your success in this version of the PayPal Letter.

ALSO NOTE: By sending this letter and the payment via E-MAIL, the response time is much faster.......... ELECTRONIC TRANSFER INTERNET FAST!!!

Consider this! Millions of people surf the Internet everyday, all day, all over the world! Here are the 3 people to start with. Sign up, send $5.00 to the first person, move the other two up to (Nos. 1 & 2) respectively and add your own e-mail address at (No.3). Be sure to use your email address that is associated with your PayPal Account.


************************************* To send your letter by e-mail, copy this ENTIRE PAGE and paste it in a new message of your E-mail.

TO DO THIS: 1. Go in your toolbar to "edit" and "select all" 2. Go in your toolbar to "edit" and select "copy" 3. Start (compose) a new E-mail message (make sure it's PLAIN TEXT so everyone can view it!) 4. Fill in your Address and Subject Box 5. Go to "edit" and "paste" (Then you can format it anyway you want!)

Now you can edit the addresses with ease. Delete the top name, adding your name and address to the bottom of the list, then simply changing the numbers. Remember, YOUR NAME goes on the BOTTOM and the other 2 names move up. But DO NOT forget to send $5.00 via PayPal (along with your note) to the position (No.1) - TOP E-MAIL address before deleting it!

THERE'S NOTHING MORE TO DO. When your name reaches the first position in a few days, it will be your turn to collect your MONEY! The money will be sent to you by 2,000 to 4,000 people like yourself, who are willing to invest one half hour to receive $20,000 in cash! That's all! There will be a total of $20,000 in $5.00 bills in your PayPal Account in two weeks. $20,000 for one hour's work! This is real money that you can spend on anything you wish! Just deposit it to your own bank account or spend it directly from your PayPal Account!!! It's just that easy!!! I think it's WORTH IT, don't you?

No stamps, no envelopes, no copies to be made - just a little effort and faith!!! This program really "Keeps It Short and Simple"!

OH BY THE WAY....each time someone signs up with your link under your name... you also make $5.00 from PayPal... so they pay to open up the account but they also pay you when someone signs up from being referred by you. AWESOME! Let's all make some serious money $$$$$$

Copy and Paste the address below to your browser

Play by the rules, this doesn't cost anything but your time, and if everyone plays fair, everyone WINS!!

This is a "ONE TIME" mailing sent to those interested in Home and Business Opportunities, and to friends. Your address is not added to any other lists, so this is NOT considered spam.

Thank you & good luck in your ventures

Sincerely, MR.HOLLAND
