    Ignore it. This has been floating around the internet for years. It's bogus.

    I got that one too. Sounds like someone is collecting email addresses. Did anyone forward it and receive their share of the Bill Gates fortune????? :D

    It's a "chain letter." Go to www.snopes.com and look up these types of letters.

    You will discover they are just BS. Do a google or Yahoo or AOL search and type in ALL the key words. "chain letter, Bill Gates, Microsoft"...
