    Seen on Oprah,20/20

    Okay I just tried this the other day. We will see if it works. I read this one about a year ago. I have noticed it going around the internet big time. Everyone says that it really works and you can make a ton of money. Just send $5 to the first and fifth person on the list, than send it to 200 newsgroups/forums/etc. I am just having a hard time finding 200 or even 20 places to post it. I figured since I just sent the $10 that other people would too. Following is the article that I have been posting. Does this make me a scammer too. I thought this seemed like an easy no strings attached way to make some extra money. I will keep you posted how things work out. Here is the article-any body have suggestions or think this is rediculous, you can try this yourself if you want to follow mine:

    MAKE THOUSANDS IN JUST A FEW WEEKS!

    Do You Need an Extra Income? Quickly and legally?

    Do you have a PayPal Account? (If not, the set up takes 10-15 minutes.)

    You could make up to $50,000 in one month's time with more money coming in every
    month thereafter!

    $50,000 in PayPal?

    That's Right! $50,000 dollars in your PayPal ACCOUNT, IT WAS PROVEN ON OPRAH and this system is

    COMPLETELY LEGAL!!!

    You may have heard of this program (or one like it) on 20/20 or even in the Wall Street Journal. $10 that's all it takes. I'll try to keep it short and sweet.
    To get started just copy this whole page and paste it to edit it. Simply follow the instructions below and in 2 to 3 weeks, you will have as much as $50,000 dollars in your PayPal account or even more.

    Most people respond to this program because of the low investment ($10 dollars) and the high profit potential. There is no limit to the income you can generate from this (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.

    I think everyone has heard of PayPal. Anyone with an e-mail address can join for FREE! If you're not already a PayPal user, the first thing you need to do is sign up. Sign-up for paypal at www.paypal.com
    It's really easy to set up and it's FREE!!! If you see that you are getting loads of money I would upgrade my paypal account to a business or premier account. That way it allows that much money through the short amount of time and does not slow down your cash flow.

    Send $5 to the first person on the list by using the paypal “send money” feature, and include in the email “Please add me to your list.” This keeps the program legal because is a service for them to add you to their list. Then send another $5 to the 5th person on the list, with an email that says, “Thank you. I’ve joined”

    Remove the 1st e-mail address and place your address at the bottom. This moves the 2nd to 1st, 3rd to 2nd, 4th 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!

    If you do this the way it was designed, it will reach thousands by the time your name gets to the top. REMEMBER TO SEND a $5.00 dollar donation to the 1st e-mail address and the message "PLEASE ADD ME TO YOUR LIST," and send an email with the words "THANK YOU. I'VE JOINED" and the other $5.00 donation to the 5th person.
    This helps the 5th person keep track of progress of the letter and continue to send out more emails. Here is the list:


    1. [email protected]
    2. [email protected]
    3. [email protected]
    4. [email protected]
    5. [email protected]

    (Make sure it's the same e-mail address that you used to open your PayPal account. This is the way you will receive payment)

    Now that you have paid the 1st person and 5th person and sent them both an email, a note, and placed your e-mail address in the 5th place, then what you need to do is post your letter. You can post on craigslist.org, message boards and newsgroups (there are thousands!), and you can even send in an email to your email list. IT IS YOUR JOB AS THE 5TH PERSON ON THE LIST TO ENSURE THERE ARE AT LEAST 20 "THANK YOU. I'VE JOINED" replies.

    Now the fun happens….we reap what we sow. Other people will see your posting and do the exact same thing, bringing you lots and lots of dollars!! Seriously, it’s common sense….you do it and 25 or more people see and do the same thing…so on and so forth…everyone wins!

    You will receive thanks AND THE SAME BLESSING. When your name is on the 1st
    slot, 8,000 to 15,000 people will send you 5 dollars! Keep in mind the most you
    spent is $10 DOLLARS! (Remember this: what goes around comes around!)

    TESTIMONIALS:

    Mary Gatters, Columbus, SC:

    I only have one thing to say to you: OH MY GOD! I sent out 142 copies total
    before 20 replied, like the instructions said. Then I went on a short vacation.
    When I got back my account had over $32,000 dollars in it already and the money
    was still coming! I'm still floating on air (especially with my new car). I
    thought the guardian system sounded cheesy, but now I realize it is the formula
    that makes this letter really work! THANKS!

    Richard Barrie, Boulder, CO:

    I was shocked when I saw how much money came flooding into my PayPal account.
    Within 3 weeks my account balance has ballooned to $22,449. At first I thought there had been some sort of error with my account!"
    ------------------------------------------------------
    You, will post this exact message to as many different e-mails, newsgroups, friends, online forums, message boards, chat sites, disussions, newgroups, etc. Maximing the exposure of the letter, and ultimately getting more people to join in, which is better for all of us. Say everyone posts to 300 newgroups or online forums with this same letter, by the time YOU GET TO POSITION 1 on the e-mail list, you will have maximum exposure and receive the most payments in volume due to the fact that the letter has circulated and grown 2000 times the size it was. THAT IS WHEN THE MONEY STARTS POURING IN!! Search these terms through any search engine; google.com, yahoo.com, excite.com, altavista.com, the more the merrier, remember max exposure: "message boards, online forum, messageboards, post new topic, online forums, discussions, newgroup, newsgroups, employment message board, money making discussions, money making forum, money making forums, chat sites, millionaire message board, money making message board, etc.
    THE MORE NEWSGROUPS, MESSAGE BOARDS, DISCUSSIONS, ONLINE FORUMS, FRIENDS, E-MAILS THAT YOU POST, THE MORE MONEY - !

    Please give it an honest effort, you will not be disappointed and will be very glad you did when it starts to work. Remember, all you are going to be out of pocket is about the cost of a couple of coffees with the opportunity of banking thousands of dollars into your PayPal account! Take the smallest risk of your life. Take 10-20 minutes to work on this small project and reap the rewards!

    Re: Seen on Oprah,20/20

    Okay you guys I guess this pisses people off. I didn't know I would get such harsh messages. This is the first time I had tried something like this and that is why I put it here to get some opinions, not opinions like die in hell. I am a homemaker mom. It seemed like an easy way to make money and look tons of people doing it. Sorry that you don't like it. If you read the first paragraph of my post it explained that I was wandering if it is a scam. Excuse me for trying something new. By the way I am not a loser, my husband makes 75,000 a year which is more than a majority of people. I just had a baby and thank God I do not have to work right now. Just thought I would let everyone know it is regular people like that who is doing this.

    That chain letter is old school! And what you're doing is trying to refer people on here, and we do not like it!!!! There are plenty of message boards to post this garbage. Not on Scam.com. We are not as dumb as you think!! :mad:
