NEW VERSION ! 1997 (Legal Questions Addressed!)
(Excerpt From Bob Novak Who Started This New Version)
In late October of 1996, I saw an article in an
internet newsgroup telling me that I could make $50,000
within a month for an investment of only $5. I thought, "OH
YAH!! I'VE GOT A BRIDGE I'LL SELL YOU TOO!!" It sounded
like all the rest of the "get rich quick" schemes and scams
I've seen over the past 40 years or so.
I spoke to my attorney, a few friends, and family about
it, and they all agreed it was some kind of scam. I can't
stand scams, because usually someone gets burned, and I
didn't want it to be me. After rejecting the idea at first,
it kind of played on my mind and I thought, "what if it
really worked?" I realized all I had to lose was $5.00, I
usually blow that much on the lottery every week anyway, so
I figured what the heck, and decided to give it a shot.
Within two weeks I began receiving money in the mail!
Soon, hundreds, and then thousands of dollars began to roll
in. Within 4 weeks, I had received a total of $46,812.00!
It came from everywhere in the world." Lately, I've doubled
my efforts and the money is rolling in even faster. I would
tell you how much but then the IRS would know also, let's
just say it's a VERY comfortable living. Now, I am really
going to work! If I can make as much as I have, and still
am, on a lousy $5.00 investment, why not double it and make
the "Big Bucks" twice as fast? Anybody can afford to gamble
$10.00 on a chance to make $100,000.00 or more in a month,
especially when the business has already proven itself.
If you follow the three steps below, there is no reason
why the same shouldn't happen to you! This is a legitimate
investment opportunity. You invest $10, and you receive a
return on your investment. So does the next investor. THIS
IS NOT ILLEGAL, THIS IS NOT A CHAIN LETTER, THIS IS
PERFECTLY LEGITIMATE. (See additional legal details below.)
THE PROCEEDURE IS SIMPLE:
1) Invest your $10 by writing your name and address on five
seperate pieces of paper along with the words: "PLEASE ADD
ME TO YOUR MAILING LIST." (In this way, you're not just
sending two dollars to someone; you're paying for a
legitimate service.) Fold two $1 U.S. Treasury bills, money
order, or bank note inside each piece of paper, and mail
them by standard U. S. Mail to the following five addresses:
1. Sean Bennett
#605 - 9825 103 St
Edmonton, AB T5K 2M3
2. Gregory Pang
U of A postal outlet
Edmonton, AB T6G 2S6
3. Pawel Koper
#4-7120 Pandora St.
4. Thomas Walter
5. Nizar Ogutmen
Reuter Str. 13
2) Now remove the top name from the list, and move the
other four names up. In other words, #5 becomes #4 and so
on. Put your name as the fifth one on the list. You can do
this by simply retyping the article or reposting it to other
newsgroups with the edited addresses.
3) Post the article to at least 200 newsgroups. There are
22,000, so it shouldn't be hard to find that many. Remember,
there are no "Free Lunches" in this world so the harder you
work the more money you will make.
You are now in the mail order investment business, and
should start seeing returns within a week or two. Of course,
the more newsgroups you post to, the greater your return
will be. If you wish to remain anonymous, you may use a
pseudonym, but make sure your address is correct.
LEGAL ? ? ?
People have asked me if this is really legal. It is!
You are using the Internet to advertise your business. What
is that business? You are assembling a mailing list of
people who are interested in home based computer and online
businesses and methods of generating income at home.
Remember - people send you a small fee to be added to your
list. It is legal. What will you do with your list of
thousands of names? That's up to you.
NOW HERE IS WHY THE SYSTEM WORKS:
The internet is growing at a tremendous rate - it
doubles in size every 4 months. Think about it. You see
those "Make Money Fast" posts more and more. All that
growth means profits for everyone who participates. There
are no losers.
Of every 200 posts I made, I received 5 responses. That
probably doesn't seem like much. You make $10 for every 200
posts with your name at #5.
Each person who sent you $2 now also makes 200 additional
postings with your name at #4. i.e.. 1000 postings. On
average therefore, 50 people will send you $2 with your name
at #4. $100.00.
Your 50 new agents make 200 postings each with your name at
#3 or 10,000 postings. Average return 500 people=$1,000.00.
They make 200 postings each with your name at #2=100,000
postings=5000 return at $2 each=$10,000.
Finally, 5,000 people make 200 postings with your name at
#1 and you get a return of $100,000 before your name drops
off the list. AND THAT'S IF EVERYONE DOWN THE LINE MAKES
ONLY 200 POSTINGS! Total income in one cycle = $100,000.
From time to time, when you see your name no longer on the
list, you take the latest posting that appears in the
newsgroups, and send out another $10, and put your name at
#5, and start posting again. Remember, 200 postings is only
a guideline. The more you post, the greater the return.
Lets review why you should do this. THE ONLY COST IS
$10, AND 5 STAMPS, AND 5 ENVELOPES. Anyone can afford $10
for such an effortless investment with such SPECTACULAR
Some people have said to me, "what happens if the
scheme is played out and no one sends me any money?" Big
Deal, so you lose $10.00 but what are the chances of that
happening? SINCE THIS IS A BRAND NEW PROGRAM AS OF JANUARY
1, 1997, YOU'RE IN ON THE GROUND FLOOR!
There are millions of internet users, and millions of
new net surfers every month.
Remember- read the instructions carefully, and play
fairly. THAT'S the only way this will work. Get a printout
so you can refer back to this article easily.
Keep a list of everyone that sends you money, keep good
books, pay your taxes, and always keep an eye on the
postings to make sure everyone is playing fairly. You know
where your name should be.
If you're really not sure or still think this can't be
for real, then don't do it. But please print this article
and pass it along to someone you know who really needs the
bucks, and see what happens.
REMEMBER-HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY. WHAT ARE 10
DOLLARS TO YOU? YOU DON'T NEED TO CHEAT THIS IDEA TO MAKE
MONEY!!! (We will monitor the program and if we find you
have cheated by not sending your money to your five
recipients, we will just dump you out of the system). This
is the easiest way that you can make a buck. Think how
excited you'll be to open up your mailbox day after day!
Will it be $50? or $5,000? Start making your plans, because
it can happen to you.
DON'T PASS UP THIS ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY!!!
HOW TO POST TO NEWSGROUPS FAST WITH YOUR WEB BROWSER:
The Fastest Way To Post To a Newsletter:
Simply highlight and COPY (Ctrl-C for copy) the text this
e-mail message and PASTE it into a text editor such as
Notepad and SAVE it (as a .txt file).
After you have made the necessary changes that are outlined
above, Simply COPY and PASTE the text into the message
section of the message composition window and to be posted
to the Newsgroup and post it!
If you have Netscape 3.0 do EXACTLY the following:
1) Click on any news group like normal, THEN click on 'TO
NEWS', which is on the far left when you're in the
newsgroups page. This will bring up a box to type a message
2) Leave the newsgroup box like it is, CHANGE the subject
box to something flashy, like, "NEED CASH $$$ READ HERE
$$$" or "FAST CASH"!!!
3) Tab once and you should be ready to type. Now, retype
THIS whole article WORD FOR WORD, except insert your name at
#5, and remove #1 off the list, plus any other small changes
you think you need to make. Keep almost all of it the SAME!
4) When you're done typing the WHOLE article, click on FILE
in THIS BOX, RIGHT ABOVE SEND, NOT WHERE IT SAYS NETSCAPE
NEWS ON THE FIRST BOX.
Click on SAVE AS when you're under FILE. Save your article
as a text file to your C: or A: drive. DO NOT SEND OR POST
YOUR ARTICLE UNTIL YOU DO THIS. Once saved, move on to
number 5 below.
NOTE: If you don't want to type in the whole article by
hand, AND you know how to use a plain text editor (like
Notepad), you can edit the file ahead of time, then attach
it as shown in step 6.
5) If you still have all of your text, send or post to this
newsgroup now by just clicking send, which is right below
FILE, and right above Cc:.
6) Here's where you're going to post all 200. OK, click on
any news group then click on 'TO NEWS', again in the top
left corner. Leave the NEWSGROUPS BOX alone again, put a
flashy subject title in the SUBJECT BOX, hit TAB once you're
in the body of the message. Click on ATTACHMENTS, which is
below the SUBJECT BOX. You will get another box to come up.
Click on ATTACH FILE, then find YOUR file that you saved;
click on the file, and then click 'OPEN' now click on OK;
if you did this right, you should see your file name in the
attachments box, and it will be shaded green.
Note: If you don't want to type in the whole article and you
know how to use a plain text editor (Notepad), you can edit
the file ahead of time, then attach it.
You can post this message to many newsgroups at a time by
simply selecting a newsgroup near the top of the screen,
hold down the SHIFT key, and then select a newsgroup near
the botton of the screen. All of the newsgroup in-between
will also be selected.
IF YOU USE IE EXPLORER IT'S JUST AS EASY...HOLDING DOWN THE
LEFT MOUSE BUTTON, highlight this article. then press the
"crtl" key and the "c" key at the same time to copy this
article. then print this article for your records, to have
the names of those you will be sending $1 bills to.
2) Go to the news groups and press "post an article". A
window will open. Type in your headline in the subject area
and then click in the large window below. Press "crtl" and
then "v" and the article will be placed in the window.
If you want to edit the article, do so and then highlight
and copy it again. Now every time you post the article in a
new newsgroup all you have to repeat is "ctrl" and "v" and
3) That's it. Each time you do this, all you have to do is
type in a different newsgroup, so that way, it posts to 200
DIFFERENT newsgroups, or more.
You see? Now you just have 199 to go!! (Don't worry, each
one takes about 30 seconds, once you get used to it.)
REMEMBER 200 IS THE MINIMUM. The more you post the more
money you will receive. AND THAT'S ALL THERE IS TO IT!!!
DON'T LET THIS ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY PASS YOU BY!
