I saw this ad in an ad forum, I see these kinds of ads quite often these days ... I am producing it before yo, with some typos :D ----------------- That’s Right… $40,000 in your PayPal account and that’s NO BULL!!! IT WAS PROVEN ON OPRAH and is COMPLETELY LEGAL!!! I’ll keep it short and sweet. You may have seen or heard of this program on OPRAH,20/20, or in the Wall Street Journal. You may have even received numerous messages about this simple program and probably just deleted them. I know I have! But, for some unknown reason, I decided to give it a try this time. After all, it’s only a $10.00 investment! Please, give this an honest effort, you will not be disappointed and will be very glad you did when it starts to work. $10 Dollars... that’s all it takes. Most people respond to this program because of the low investment ($10 dollars) andhigh profit potential. There is NO limit to the income you can generate from thisand you can do it over and over. If you follow the instructions, you will reach thousands of people! Honesty, Faith, and Integrity make this system work! Follow the instructions below and in 2 to 3 weeks: You will have as much as $40,000 dollars in your PayPal account or even much more. TEAM WORK MAKES THIS DREAM WORK! LET’S GET STARTED: Step 1. Right mouse click and copy this whole page, then paste it in a new email to edit it. Step 2. Set up your PayPal account. If you’re not already a PayPal user, just click the link below! It’s really easy to set up, anyone with an e-mail address can join and it’s F*R*E*E*! Just make sure you have a Premier or Business account, or you will be subject to a monthly income limitation, which will slow your money and this program down. Click here to open Your PayPal Account www.PayPal.com Step 3. Send a $5.00 donation, from Your PayPal account, to the FIRST e-mail address on the list, select “SERVICE” as the Category of Purchase and include “Please add me to your list” in the NOTE box before clicking on the CONTINUE button. DON’T FORGET to include “Please add me to your list” in the Note box. This note is important; it keeps the program LEGAL. ***This is 100% legal. Refer to US Postal and Lottery Laws, Title 18, section1302 and 1341, or Title 18 section 3005 in the US code. Also, in the Code of Federal regulations, volume 16, Section 255 and 436, which states a product or service must be exchanged for money received. In this case, you are being placed on a mailing list service for $5! Step 4. Send the other $5.00 donation, from Your PayPal account, to the 5the-mail address on the list, and then send an Email to the 5th e-mail address saying, “Thank you, I’ve joined.” This helps the 5th person keep track of the progress of the letter and continue to send out more emails. Step 5. Remove the 1st e-mail address. Add Your e-mail address at the bottom, as the 5th e-mail address. (Make sure your e-mail address is the same e-mail address you used to Open Your PayPal account. This is the way you will receive payment.) This moves the 2nd place e-mail address to 1st place, 3rd place to 2nd, 4th place to 3rd, and the 5th place into 4th. DO NOT TRY TO PLACE YOURSELF IN THE FIRST PLACE. IT WILL ONLY REACH THE PEOPLE YOU SEND IT TO, AND THEN YOUR NAME WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE LIST! Step 6. Keep sending the letter until you get 50 “Thank you, I’ve joined” replies in your e-mail inbox. The 5th person is the guardian of the system! It is your job, as the 5th person on the list, to ensure there are at least 50 “Thank you, I’ve joined” e-mail replies. If not, then the 5th person will keep sending the letter until there are 50 e-mail replies. If you do this, the way it was designed, the letter will reach thousands by the time Your name gets to the top. Here is the list; (list of 5 persons .....) When your name is on the 1st slot, 8,000 to 15,000 people will send you $5.00! Keepin mind... the most you spent is $10 DOLLARS! (Remember... what comes around goes around… pay it forward!) Remember, all you’re going to be out of pocket is about the cost of a couple of coffees ($10) with the opportunity of banking thousands of dollars into your PayPal account! Yours In Success and Prosperity, .... ---------------------- I think this is dumbo, n just fooling around, even if it works, it's kinda fooling ppl, isn't it? There is nothing neat abt it. Its like Someone's Cap on some one's Head.... Your comments pls ...

Classic pyramid scheme. It it was covered on TV then it was as a scam, no way anyone endorsed this nonsense. The great thing about the internet for these people is that they can lie at will and almost no one will check them out.

This is a classic scam which has been doing the rounds in various guises since long before computers and even photocopiers made it easier. There is nothing neat about it at all. It is also illegal in most countries, despite the fact that you are supposed to be offering "a service"! It appeals to 'Honesty, Faith and Integrity' but the 'Faith' bit is for dumbos. The 'Honesty' and 'Integrity' go in the trash right along with it because it is NOT honest! The only 'service' you are selling is the very slim chance that, by the time it reaches the 5th round, there is anyone else left in the world to spam! It may be true that one or two people may make money out of these schemes. The people who do, of course, are cashing in on people's gullibility and greed. How honest is that? In the past I have received these things (with street addresses rather than emails) and have checked the addresses. Invariably the addresses all belong to one person or one family ... how strange! Before you send it, though, just stop and consider how many of your friends would really GIVE you $5 with no strings. Do you think that, without the added incentive of greed based on a trumped-up statistic, they would even be as eager to send $5 to a complete stranger? Would you? Money is to be made by honesty, integrity and faith in a REAL business venture and in something that it is reasonable to believe in. If you try to con anyone out of even one cent by false promises, you are stealing from them.
