Virus/Hoak... NOT!

(10) One of the longest "come on" chain letters
I have seen on the Internet.
This is from the David Oglivy school of advertising: the more you read, the more you believe. Sucker.

----------------- THIS IS A MUST READ -----------------

This is the ONLY email you will receive from us. ****

I hate "junk" email. 99.5% of the time I just delete the Spam that clutters my in box every morning. Of the 0.5% that I do read, most of those get tossed also, except for this one. I KNOW that I have received this or a similar email before and summarily discarded it. When I finally did read the following email, I was intrigued. I thought "What the heck, I spend $20 a week just on lunch! Why not give this a shot?!?" I have been kicking myself ever since for not getting into this sooner (and for throwing away all those previous opportunities).

I followed the instructions in the accompanying email, sent off my four envelopes with $5 in each one and waited for my reports to arrive. I read through the reports I received and immediately went to work. I have paid off my credit cards and have just come back from a cruise vacation. I plan to walk into my bank soon and pay off the balance of my auto loan... in cash.

If you too are intrigued, read on and possibly order the reports. If you're not, go ahead and delete this email (or keep it sitting in you mailbox for another day) and you won't hear from us again. For me at least this email has changed my entire life and has given me the financial security I have always dreamed of.

Good luck and thanks for your time!

"...I made more than $41,000 on the first try!!" - D. Wilburn, Muncie, IN

"...Boy, was I surprised when I found my medium-sized post office box crammed with $5 orders! It got so overloaded that I had to start picking up my mail at the window. I'll make more money THIS YEAR than ANY 10 years of my life! There simply isn't a better opportunity ..."
- Mary Rockland, Lansing, MI

"...This system is honest, lawful, extremely profitable and a way to get a large amount of money in a short time. I joined just to see what one could expect in return for the minimal effort and money required. To my astonishment, I received $36,470 in ..."

"...When I first received the program, I grumbled to my wife Doris about receiving "junk mail." I just "knew" it wouldn't work. I made fun of the whole thing, spouting my knowledge of the population and percentages involved. Doris totally ignored my supposed intelligence and jumped in with both feet. I made merciless fun of her. Well, the laugh was on me! Within 45 days she had received over $147,200 in $5 bills! I was shocked! I AM a believer now. I had seven more years until retirement from my job as a cost accountant with a major U.S. corporation, but I think of the "rat race," and it's not for me. We owe it all to MLM."
- Frank T., Bel-Air, MD

"...I am stunned by all the money that keeps rolling in! Every day for the last 6 weeks, my P.O. box has been overflowing with $5 bills! Many days the excess fills up an extra mail bin, and I've had to upgrade to the corporate-size box! My husband and I have been saving for years to make a down payment on a house. Now, not only are we purchasing a house with 40% down, we're going to Venice, Italy to celebrate! "

" For your sake and your family's sake, don't pass up this golden opportunity. We have quit our jobs and will soon buy a home on the beach and live off the interest on our money." - Charles Fairchild, Spokane, WA

From the program originator: "...I have already made over $4 MILLION from the program! I have now retired from the program. ...I will not see a penny of your money, nor will anyone else who has provided a testimonial for this program. ....Get a pencil out and figure out what could happen when you participate. Figure out the worst possible response, and no matter how you calculate it, you will still make a lot of money."
- Paul Johnson, Raleigh, NC

"I paid off all my debts and bought a much needed new car.... Do you have any idea what 11,700 $5 bills ($58,000) look like piled up on a kitchen table? It's awesome! Please take time to read the attached program. It will change your life forever." - Christopher Erickson

This is the email I received:
= = = = = = = = = = = = = =

*** You are about to make at least Read the enclosed program...THEN READ IT AGAIN!... ***

Dear Friend,

I know that this seems like another one of those E-mails trying to clutter up your mail box, but if you will give me five minutes of your time to read this letter I think that you will understand why.

My name is Christopher Erickson. Two years ago, the corporation I worked at for the past twelve years down-sized and my position was eliminated. After unproductive job interviews, I decided to open my own business... Soon I owed my family, friends, and creditors over $35,000... I had to refinance and borrow against my home to support my family and struggling business. AT THAT MOMENT something significant happened in my life and I am writing to share my experience in hopes that this will change your life FOREVER... FINANCIALLY!!!

I received this program via email. THANK GOODNESS they got my name off a mailing list!!! After reading it several times, to make sure I was reading it correctly, I couldn't believe my eyes. Here was a MONEY-MAKING PHENOMENON. I could invest as much as I wanted without putting me further in debt. I figured I would at least get my money back. After determining that the program is LEGAL and NOT A CHAIN LETTER, I decided "WHY NOT".

Initially I sent out 10,000 emails. It only cost me about $15.00 for my time on-line. The great thing about email is that I didn't need any money for printing to send out the program, only the cost to fulfill my orders. I am telling you like it is, I hope it doesn't turn you off, but I promised myself that I would not "cheat" anyone, no matter how much money it cost me!.

In one week, I was receiving orders for REPORT #1. In less than a month, I had received 26 orders for REPORT #1. When you read the GUARANTEE in the program, you will see that "YOU MUST RECEIVE 15 TO 20 ORDERS FOR REPORT #1 WITHIN TWO WEEKS. IF YOU DON'T, SEND OUT MORE PROGRAMS UNTIL YOU DO!" My first step in making $50,000 in 20 to 90 days was that I paid off ALL my debts and bought a much needed new car. Please take time to read the attached program, IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOREVER! Remember, it won't work if you don't try it. This program does work, but you must follow it EXACTLY! Especially the rules of not trying, REPORT #2 explains this. Always follow the guarantee, 15 to 20 orders for REPORT #1, and 100 or more orders for REPORT #2 and you will make $50,000 or more in 20 to 90 days. I AM LIVING PROOF THAT IT WORKS !!!

If you choose not to participate in this program, I'm sorry. It really is a great opportunity with little cost or risk to you. If you choose to participate, follow the program and you will be on your way to financial security. If you are a fellow business owner and you are in financial trouble like I was, or you want to start your own business, consider this a sign. I DID!


Christopher Erickson

PS Do you have any idea what 11,700 $5 bills ($58,000) looks like piled up on a kitchen table? IT'S AWESOME!


"I had received this program before. I threw it away, but later wondered if I shouldn't have given it a try. Of course, I had no idea whom to contact to get a copy, so I had to wait until I was emailed another copy of the program. Eleven months passed, then it came. I DIDN'T throw this one away. I made $41,000 on the first try."

Dawn W., Evansville, IN


By the time you have read the enclosed information and looked over the enclosed program and reports, you should have concluded that such a program, and one that is legal, could not have been created by an amateur.

Let me tell you a little about myself. I had a profitable business for ten years. Then in 1979 my business began falling off. I was doing the same things that were previously successful for me, but it wasn't working. Finally, I figured it out. It wasn't me, it was the economy. Inflation and recession had replaced the stable economy that had been with us since 1945. I don't have to tell you what happened to the unemployment rate... because many of you know from first hand experience. There were more failures and bankruptcies than ever before.

The middle class was vanishing. Those who knew what they were doing invested wisely and moved up. Those who did not, including those who never had anything to save or invest, were moving down into the ranks of the poor. As the saying goes, "THE RICH GET RICHER AND THE POOR GET POORER." The traditional methods of making money will never allow you to "move up" or "get rich", inflation will see to that.

You have just received information that can give you financial freedom for the rest of your life, with "NO RISK" and "JUST A LITTLE BIT OF EFFORT." You can make more money in the next few months than you have ever imagined.

I should also point out that I will not see a penny of your money, nor anyone else who has provided a testimonial for this program. I have already made over FOUR MILLION DOLLARS! I have retired from the program after sending out over 16,000 programs. Now I have several offices which market this and several other programs here in the US and overseas. By the Spring, we wish to market the 'Internet' by a partnership with AMERICA ON LINE.

Follow the program EXACTLY AS INSTRUCTED. Do not change it in any way It works exceedingly well as it is now. Remember to email a copy of this exciting program to everyone that you can think of. One of the people you send this to may send out 50,000... and your name will be on every one of them!. Remember though, the more you send out, the more potential customers you will reach.

So my friend, I have given you the ideas, information, materials and opportunity to become financially independent, IT IS UP TO YOU NOW!


Before you delete this program from your mailbox, as I almost did, take a little time to read it and REALLY THINK ABOUT IT. Get a pencil and figure out what could happen when YOU participate. Figure out the worst possible response and no matter how you calculate it, you will still make a lot of money! Definitely get back what you invested. Any doubts you have will vanish when your first orders come in. IT WORKS!

If you decide to start small, just to see how it goes, then let's assume you and all those involved send out 2,000 programs each. Let's also assume that the mailing receives a .5% response. That is only 10 orders for REPORT #1! Those 10 people respond by sending out 2,000 programs each for a total of 20,000. Out of those 5%, 100 people respond and order REPORT #2. Those 100 mail out 2,000 programs each for a total of 200,000. The .5% response to that is 1,000 orders for REPORT #3. Those 1,000 send out 2,000 programs each for a 2,000,000 total. The .5% response to that is 10,000 orders for REPORT #4. That's 10,000 five dollar bills for you... CASH!!!! Your total income in this example is $50 + $500 + $5000 + $50,000 for a total of $55,550!!!


Believe me, many people will do that and more! By the way, your cost to participate I THIS IS A LEGITIMATE, LEGAL, MONEY MAKING OPPORTUNITY. It does not require you to come in contact with people, do any hard work, and best of all, you never have to leave the house except to get the money. Someday you'll get that big break that you've been waiting for, THIS IS IT! Simply follow the instructions, and your dream will come true. This multi-level email order marketing program works perfectly... 100% EVERY TIME. Email is the sales tool of the future. Take advantage of this non-commercialized method of advertising NOW!! The longer you wait, the more people will be doing business using email. Get your piece of this action!!

MULTI-LEVEL MARKETING (MLM) has finally gained respectability. It is being taught in the Harvard Business School, and both Stanford Research and The Wall Street Journal have stated that between 50% and 65% of all goods and services will be sold throughout Multi-level Methods by the mid to late 1990's. This is a Multi-Billion Dollar industry and of the 500,000 millionaires in the US, 20% (100,000) made their fortune in the last several years in MLM. Moreover, statistics show 45 people become millionaires everyday through Multi-Level Marketing.

This is the GREATEST Multi-level Mail Order Marketing anywhere:

Step (1) Order all four 4 REPORTS listed by NAME AND NUMBER. Do this by ordering the REPORT from each of the four 4 names listed on the next page. For each REPORT, send $5 CASH and a SELF-ADDRESSED, STAMPED envelope (BUSINESS SIZE #10) to the person listed for the SPECIFIC REPORT. International orders should also include $1 extra for postage. It is essential that you specify the NAME and NUMBER of the report requested to the person you are ordering from. You will need ALL FOUR 4 REPORTS because you will be REPRINTING and RESELLING them. DO NOT alter the names or sequence other than what the instructions say. IMPORTANT: Always provide same-day service on all orders.

Step (2) Replace the name and address under REPORT #1 with yours, moving the one that was there down to REPORT #2. Drop the name and address under REPORT #2 to REPORT #3, moving the one that was there to REPORT #4. The name and address that was under REPORT #4 is dropped from the list and this party is no doubt on the way to the bank. When doing this, make certain you type the names and addresses ACCURATELY! DO NOT MIX UP MOVING PRODUCT/REPORT POSITIONS!!!

Step (3) Having made the required changes in the NAME list, save it as a text (.txt) file in it's own directory to be used with whatever email program you like. Again, REPORT #3 will tell you the best methods of bulk emailing and acquiring email lists.

Step (4) Email a copy of the entire program (all of this is very important) to everyone whose address you can get your hands on. Start with friends and relatives since you can encourage them to take advantage of this fabulous money-making opportunity. That's what I did. And they love me now, more than ever. Then, email to anyone and everyone! Use your imagination! You can get email addresses from companies on the internet who specialize in email mailing lists. These are very cheap, 100,000 addresses for around $35.00.

IMPORTANT: You won't get a good response if you use an old list, so always request a FRESH, NEW list. You will find out where to purchase these lists when you order the four 4 REPORTS. ALWAYS PROVIDE SAME-DAY SERVICE ON ALL ORDERS!!!

I am enjoying my fortune that I made by sending out this program. You too, will be making money in 20 to 90 days, if you follow the SIMPLE STEPS outlined in this mailing.

To be financially independent is to be FREE. Free to make financial decisions as never before. Go into business, get into investments, retire or take a vacation. No longer will a lack of money hold you back.

Please re-read this material, this is a special opportunity. If you have any questions, please feel free to write to the sender of this information. You will get a prompt and informative reply.

My method is simple. I sell thousands of people a product for $5 that costs me pennies to produce and email. I should also point out that this program is legal and everyone who participates WILL make money. This is not a chain letter or pyramid scheme. At times you have probably received chain letters, asking you to send money, on faith, but getting NOTHING in return, NO product what-so-ever! Chain letters are illegal and the risk of someone breaking the chain makes them quite unattractive.

You are offering a legitimate product to your people. After they purchase the product from you, they reproduce more and resell them. It's simple free enterprise. As you learned from the enclosed material, the PRODUCT is a series of four 4 FINANCIAL AND BUSINESS REPORTS. The information contained in these REPORTS will not only help you in making your participation in this program more rewarding, but will be useful to you in any other business decisions you make in the years ahead. You are also buying the rights to reprint all of the REPORTS, which will be ordered from you by those to whom you mail this program. The concise one and two page REPORTS you will be buying can easily be reproduced at a local copy center for a cost off about 3 cents a copy. Best wishes with the program and Good Luck!


Send for your four 4 REPORTS immediately so you will have them when the orders start coming in. When you receive a $5 order, you MUST send out the product/service to comply with US Postal and Lottery laws. Title 18 Sections 1302 and 1341 specifically state that: "A PRODUCT OR SERVICE MUST BE EXCHANGED FOR MONEY RECEIVED."


1. Name your new company. You can use your own name if you desire.

2. Get a post office box (preferred).

3. Edit the names and addresses on the program. You must remember, your name and address go next to REPORT #1 and the others all move down one, with the fourth one being bumped OFF the list.

4. Obtain as many email addresses as possible to send until you receive the information on mailing list companies in REPORT #3.

5. Decide on the number of programs you intend to send out. The more you send, and the quicker you send them, the more money you will make.

6. After mailing the programs, get ready to fill the orders.

7. Copy the four 4 REPORTS so you are able to send them out as soon as you receive an order. IMPORTANT: ALWAYS PROVIDE SAME-DAY SERVICE ON ORDERS YOU RECEIVE!

8. Make certain the letter and reports are neat and legible.


The check point which GUARANTEES your success is simply this: you must receive 15 to 20 orders for REPORT #1. This is a must!!! If you don't within two weeks, email out more programs until you do. Then a couple of weeks later you should receive at least 100 orders for REPORT #2, if you don't, send out more programs until you do. Once you have received 100 or more orders for REPORT #2, (take a deep breath) you can sit back and relax, because YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE AT LEAST $50,000. Mathematically it is a proven guarantee. Of those who have participated in the program and reached the above GUARANTEES-ALL have reached their $50,000 goal. Also, remember, every time your name is moved down the list you are in front of a different REPORT, so you can keep track of your program by knowing what people are ordering from you. IT'S THAT EASY, REALLY, IT IS!!!
