# money for nothing that works

What is \$5 and 15 minutes when it can make you earn \$100,000 ? Not much, if you ask me...

You've probably seen a lot of those kind of messages over forums and newsgroups, and the explanation for this can be given in two words: IT WORKS!

But how on earth, will you ask me, does it actually works? How is such a thing possible? This is a simple pyramid scheme. To explain it to you with realistic numbers, lets take a simple example:

Imagine you folow the instructions given below, and post your message to

500 newsgroups (wich isn't much). 10 people read your message and also folow the instructions: that's \$10 for you. These 10 people get 10 people each to join the process: that's \$100 for you. These 100 people get 10 people each to join the process: that's \$1,000 for you! These 1,000 people get 10 people each to join the process: that's \$10,000 for you!! These 10,000 people get 10 people each to join the process: that's \$100,000 for you!!!

After the whole process, you have therefore made \$111,110! And it took you only

15 minutes and \$5!

If you think this might work (and it does, I can tell you that), then folow these simple instructions:

1) Open a FREE PayPal account (!Business or Premier, not the simple one!), and place \$5 on it. 2) Using PayPal, pay \$1 to the folowing 5 e-mail adresses, with 'Mailing list subscription' as subject and no message. 1- snipped-for-privacy@comcast.net 2- snipped-for-privacy@zonnet.nl 3- snipped-for-privacy@vat.it 4- snipped-for-privacy@gmail.com 5- monique snipped-for-privacy@hotmail.com 3) Make the changes you want to this message, and remove e-mail adress number 1. Then, place e-mail adress number 2 in number 1, 3 in number 2, 4 in number 3, 5 in number 4, and add your own e-mail adress (the one you used on PayPal!) in number 5. 4) Send your new message to all the newsgroups on your server (or at least 500 of them)! (!) I suggest you run a IP-hiding software like Steganos Internet Anonym (free download on
while posting with UltraNNTP.

That's it! It will take you 15 minutes and will cost you \$5, but it will also make you earn more than \$100,000! All you have to do now is wait, and check your inbox to see PayPal money flying to you!

So, what is \$5 and 15 minutes when it can make you earn \$100,000 ?

I am seeing more spam in the last six months or so on Usenet than in the fifteen previous fifteen years put together :-(

Complain loudly to your ISP/news service (uswest.net). Seriously. The good newsservers let thru very little spam these days. I get maybe 2 or

3 a week total, usually the same ones who have evaded all the filtering, out of 6 or 8 groups I regularly read. Ya can't stop the spammers but your ISP can sure block them out. If they ALL did it there wouldn't be any point in spamming!

Good luck, Bill
