I read an article in a newsgroup on the usenet on the internet that
said I could make $50,000 whithin a month for 5 seperate dollar$! That's
1$ to one person, 1 to the next for five people. Also they don't have to

pay any more than a dollar. The thing is that everyone has to pay $1 and
there will be about 55,555 people sending. "PLEASE, Recycle the

Look, if you think this is a scam, look at it this way, you send 5
different dollar$ to 5 different people. What is someone going to do
with $5?

Here is all you have to do in 3 steps:

step1) write your name, address (street,house#,city, and state,and
country), e-mail address, and the name of the newsgroup on 5 sheets of
paper. Under that put 'Please add me to your list.'Fold $1 note in each

paper and send each to:

1. John Kelley

P.O. Box 4363

Brockton, MA, 02403-4363

2. Chad Collier

2785 Cold Springs Rd. #49

Placerville, CA 95667

3. Steve Boltinghouse

1009 Bird St.

Hannibal, MO 63041

4. D. Fazekas

264 South Main Street Apt.3

Phillipsburg, NJ 08865

5. Zach Palmer

608 West Jackson

Fairfield, IA 52556

step2) Remove the top name from the list above. 2 then is 1, 3 is 2, 4
is 3, 5 is then 4. Put your name as #5. Now you have an investment

step3) Use a simple text editor such as Notepad, or any other. Make an
ad with the basic info in this article. Remember to use step-by-step
instructions. Post your article in at least 200 newsgroups. There are at
least 17,000 of them so don't panic. You can use the same article for
more than 1 post but you might want to use a different 1 after awhile.

(The bigger the newsgroup the better.) You get [about] $5 for every 200
posts you make with your name at #5. Then, with your name at #4, you
will get about 50 returns, $1 each, $50.

Your 50 new agents make 200 posts each with a return to you of
$500.Your name is at #5 on the list.

Finally 5000 people make 200 posts 5 returns each. You will get
$50,000. You are at #1. Did you notice you went up the list. Your name
jumps off the list and you have, if everone including you makes 200

posts. There is no set number so you can make more than 200 posts and
make more money. You have about a total
(at 200 postings) of $55,555.

Then, if you'd like you can start over with $5 again,(new cycle with
you) and be the self-employee all over again.

So you're an expert investor. Merry Christmas [when it comes
around],and remember, Truth is the best policy.
