MAKE $25,000 IN WEEKS
AS SEEN ON OPRAH AND 20/20
Oprah Winfrey and
ABC's Investigative team, 20/20 proved it can be done?
IF A FIFTEEN YEAR OLD BOY COULD
MAKE $71,000 IN FIVE WEEKS AND OTHERS
$250,000 AND MORE IN A FEW WEEKS,
SO CAN YOU!
I have received the following information
and if you will please take the time to read this, I Believe it will
be beneficial to you.
Greetings! I am a retired Attorney. Approximately two years ago
a man came to me with a letter similar to this one. He asked me to verify
that the letter was legal. I told him that I would review it and get back
to him. When I first read the letter he originally brought to me, it was
not 100% legal and advised him him to make a few small changes to the letter
so that it would be legal.
I was still curious about the letter, so he proceeded to explain
how it works. I thought it was a long shot and decided against participating.
However, before my friend left my office, I asked him to keep me updated
as to his results. About two months later, he called to tell me he ahd
received $800,000 n cash. I did not believe him. He suggested that I try
his idea and see for himself. I thought about it for a couple of days and
decided that I didn't have anything to lose, so I asked him for a copy of
the letter. I followed the instructions exactly, I mailed out 200 copies
and sure enough the money started arriving. It came in slowly at first,
but after three weeks, I was getting more mail than he could open in a day.
AFTER ABOUT THREE MONTHS, THE MONEY STOPPED COMING IN. I KEPT A PRECISE
RECORD OF MY EARNINGS AND AT THE END, IT TOTALED $986,493.00!!!!
I was earning a good living as an Attorney. However, as anyone in
the legal profession will tell you, there is a lot of stress that comes
with the job. I told myself if things worked out, I would retire from
my practice and play golf. I decided to try the letter again, but this
time, I sent out 500 letters. Well, three months later, my income totaled
$2,344,178.00! Can you believe it?
I could hardly believe it myself. But after talking with my old
friend over lunch, we realized that what made the difference from other
similar letters was the fact that there were six names on the list, not
guaranteeing that the whole program was legal, since no one wants to
participate in something illegal.
IT'S PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE!
I'll assume by now you are curious to know what
little change the attorney told him to make. Well, if you send a letter
like this out, to be legal, you must actually be selling something if you
expect to receive a dollar. I told him that anyone sending a dollar must
include these words on the letter: "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST."
This is key to the program. For the dollar you send to the six
names listed in the letter, you request to be places on a mailing list
and then have the right to receive thousands of dollars.
FOLLOW THE RULES AS LISTED BELOW EXACTLY and in less than three
months you should receive over $500,000 in cash. Just give it a
try and see for yourself.
page one ...............................................................
This program works perfectly. I have never failed to make less than
$500,000 on each mailing. This is a legitimate business opportunity and
a perfectly legal money generating program. It does not require you to
sell anything or come into personal contact with anyone. You do not attend
monthly motivational meetings, and Best of all, the only time you ever leave
home is to mail the letters. This can be done on your way to the grocery
1. Immediately send $1.00 to each six names listed
on page 3 and request that your name be added to their mailing list. It
is this step the makes this program legal.
2. Purchase a mailing list of names from *** lists.
Specify that you want the names of Opportunity Seekers. They sell
a list of 200 Names for $55.00. The nice part is the names will come
on self adhesive labels that just peel off and stick right on the envelopes.
Just call 1-877-***-**** or you may also order online at WWW.********.com.
This company accepts MasterCard and Visa to make it more convenient.
3. While waiting on the mailing list to arrive,
remove the name from the number one position and move each name up one
place (2 becomes 1, 3 becomes 2, etc.)
4. Place your name in the sixth position (an easy
way to do this is to retype or print the 6 names with yours in the 6th
position on a separate sheet of paper and tape it over the area where
the names appear on the page.)
5. After completing the above instruction, photocopy
200 copies of this 3 page letter.
6. Place each of your 200 (500 on your next mailing
for greater revenue) copies into your business size envelopes and seal
them. Go to the post office and purchase 200 first class stamps and place
them on the envelopes. The post office sells stamps in rolls of 100 that
7. Once your list arrives, place the self-adhesive
labels on each envelope and drop them in the mailbox. Within 20-90 days,
you could receive over $500,000. Within 20-90 days, you could receive over
$500,000 in CASH! Now, here is the interesting part-that's only @ 7.5%
response rate (this is very conservative). It is more likely to exceed
that amount every time The first time I participated, I kept a record of
all my letters and the response rate was 9.5%.
THIS SYSTEM WAS MADE FOR THE PURPOSE OF ACCUMULATING CAPITAL FAST
AND HONESTLY WITH PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE. Once again this is NOT an illegal
chain letter, rather a perfectly Legal Mail Order Business. (Refer to Title
18, Section 1302 # 1342 of the U.S. Postal and Lottery Laws). When you send
200 copies of this letter and each responding individual sends 200 copies
you're multiplying dollars which can become a rapid FORTUNE.
The following figures are an assumption, but at a
conservative rate assume for example yours is 7.5%.
When you send out 200 letters, 15 will send
Those 15 people mail out 200 letters, 225 send you $1.00
225 people send out 200 letters, 3375 people
send you $1.00 $3375.00
3375 people send out 200 letters, 50,625 people send you $1.00
50,625 people send out 200 letters, 759,375 people send you $1.00
YOUR TOTAL - $813,615,00, At this point, your
name is dropped from the list and you have received $813,615.00. It worked
every time. On the above example you started with 200 names and a 7.5%
response rate. With these results, you have to try.
end page two ........................................................................
I was naturally skeptical, and I
had received at least 35 letters similar to this one in a six month period.
You probably have too. There was however, something about this one that
I liked. It takes less investment than MOST do and all participants receive
money, not just the top ones Anyway, I mailed 200 letters and hoped for
the best. Nothing happened for 11 days, on the 12th day, I received $90.00.
Over the next 4 weeks, I received over $800,00.00 in cash...through the
mail. Im going to try next time with 1,000 letters! That should give me 75
letters, at the level one and a ridiculously large number at level six.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: WE INVEST IN LOTTERIES, ENTER SWEEPSTAKES,
CLIP COUPONS, ETC...WE NEED TO INVEST IN EACH OTHER...WHETHER YOU WANT
TO ADMIT IT OR NOT, WE ARE OUR BROTHERS KEEPER...AND AS A AMERICAN, WE NEED
TO HELP EACH OTHER ANYWAY WE CAN. MAYBE YOU DON'T NEED MONEY, SO DO IT FOR
A FRIEND, A NEIGHBOR IN NEED, A COLLEGE STUDENT, YOUR CHURCH OR ANYONE WHO
MAY COME TO MIND. JUST DO IT!!!!
STILL NOT SURE ABOUT IT: JUST PRAY ABOUT IT...
Here are a few things I have learned: 1: After
you get your mailing list, mail the letters while the letter is still fresh.
2: When you handle a lot of letters, you may want to invest in an electric
letter opener. 3: Be cool, keep your job until you get the cash, and then
STAY HONEST. DO NOT PROCRASTINATE; SEE HOW YOUR LIFE

to Other Money Chain Letters - by Daniel W. VanArsdale,

1. The instruction to say: "Please add my name
to your mailing list" when sending a dollar to a person on the list
dates back at least to a 1986
money chain letter. The numbered instructions on this letter that circulated
28 years ago clearly influenced the text in the above letter.
2. The titles on the above letter, and the claim that it was vetted
on Oprah and 20/20, also appear on a 2009 money chain letter with
different testimonials. Note that no date is given when these alleged endorsements
appeared on television, on either letter. Do you believe that Oprah and 20/20 approved
of not only this letter, but a different money chain letter that has been
circulating for several years already?
3. The claim that a retired attorney successfully circulated a chain
letter after being consulted on its legality also appears on a 2005 money chain letter, using
much of the exact same text. For example, the 2005 letter reads: "I told him that the letter he had originally brought me was
not 100% legal, and I advised him to make a small change in the letter
so it would be legal. The above 2014 letter
I first read the letter he originally brought to me, it was not 100% legal
and advised him him to make a few small changes to the letter so that
it would be legal."
4. Consider this statement on a 1991 chain letter: "I am skeptical
by nature. I had received at least 35 different propositions like this
one. But there was something about this particular approach that I liked."
. . . J. Holliman. Now from the above letter:
"I was naturally skeptical, and I had received
at least 35 letters similar to this one in a six month period. You probably
have too. There was however, something about this one that I liked."
5. On Jan. 24, 2015 I entered another money chain letter
very similar to the above. See me2014-08-07_RetAttorney_n6sDx6q200
These examples show that many of the claims in this letter are copied
from prior chain letters that have already been circulating for years, in
some cases from over 25 years ago. You may choose to believe these claims,
but you should not think that there is much that is new in the above letter.
You are certainly not "getting in early."
At the end of the more recent example, it is shown
that according to the numbers given in both letters, one should expect that
over 2.4 billion copies of this letter have already been distributed. That
is over 7 copies for every man, woman and child in the United States.
