MAKE $25,000.00 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 COULD MAKE $471,000.00 IN
FIVE WEEKS AND
OTHERS $250,000.00 AND MORE IN A FEW WEEKS, SO CAN YOU!
I have received the following information and if you take
the time to read this,
I believe it will be very beneficial to you.
Greeting! I am a retired
Attorney. Approximately two years ago, a man came to me with
a letter similar to this one.
He ask me to verify that letter was legal. I told him I would
review it and get back to him.
When I first read the letter that he had originally brought
me, it was not 100% legal.
I advised him to make a few small changes to the letter so that
it would be.
I was still curious about the letter, so he
proceeded to explain to me how it works. I
thought it was a long shot and decided against
participating at this time. However, before
my client left, I ask him to keep me updated
on his results. About two months, he called
me that he had received $800,000.00 in cash.
I did not believe him, so he suggested that
I try his idea and see for myself. I thought
about if for a couple of days and decided that
I didn't have anything to lose, so I asked
him for a copy of this letter. I followed the
Instructions exactly, mailed 200 copies and
sure enough the money started arriving in the
mail. It came slowly art first, but after
three weeks, I was getting more than I 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
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 that if things
work 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. We,
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
realize what made the difference from all
other letters, the fact that there were names on the
IT'S PEPOLE HELPING PEPOLE!
I'll assume that by now you are curious
to know what little change I told him to make.
We.., if you send a letter like this out, 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 the key to the program. Fort the
dollar you send to the six names listed in the letter
You request to be put on a mailing list and
then you hve the right to receive thousands of
page break ............................................................................................................................
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!
This program works perfectly! I have never failed
to make less than $500,000.00 on each mailing that I have
sent out. This is a legitimate home 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 have to attend
monthly motivational meetings. Best of all, the only time you have
to leave home, is to mail out the letters.
This can be done on your way to the grocery store.
1) Immediately send $1.00 to each of the sex names listed
on page 3 and request that your name be added
to their mailing list. It is this step
that makes the program legal.
2) Purchase a mailing list of Opportunity Seekers from
*** Lists on line at ********.com.
They sell a list of 200 Names for $55.00 (500/$80.00
and 1000/$120.00). The great part is that the
names will come on self-adhesive labels that
peel off and stick right on the envelopes This company
accepts Mastercard and Visa to make it more
3) While waiting for 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 on 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 instructions, photocopy
200 copies of this three 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 are self-adhesive.
7) Once your list arrives, place the self-adhesive labels
on each envelope an drop them into the mailbox.
Within 20 to 90 days, you will receive
over $500,000.00 in CASH!!! Now, here is the interesting part,
that is only a 7.5% response, which is
very conservative. It is more likely to exceed than 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. ONCE AGAIN, THIS IS NOT AN ILLEGAL CHAIN LETTER, RATHER
A PERFECTLY LEGAL MAIL ORDER BUSINESS. Refer to Title 18, Section 1302
and 1342 of the U.S. Postal and Lottery Laws. When you send copies of this
letter and each responding individual sends 200 copies, your multiplying
dollars 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 people well send you $1.00
Those 15 people will send out 200 letters, 225 people will send
225 people will send out 200 letters, 3375 people will send you
3375 people will send out 200 letters, 50,625 people will send you
50,625 people will send out 200 letters, 759,375 people will send
page break ................................................................................................................
At this point, your name is dropped from the
list and you have received $813,615.00. It has 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!
I was actually skeptical because I hd received
at least 35 letters similar to this one in a six month period. I
am sure that you have as well. 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 out
200 letters and hoped for the best. Nothing
happened for 11 days; on the 12th day, I received 90.00. Over
the next four weeks, I received over $800,000.00
in CASH through the mail. I am going to do it with 1000
letters next time! That should give me 75
letters at level one and a ridiculously large amount at level six!!!
FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
WE SO OFTEN INVEST IN LOTTERIES, ENTER SWEEPSTAKES,
CLIP COUPONS, ETC__WE NEED TO INVEST IN EACH
OTHER. WE ARE OUR BROTHER'S KEEPER. AS AMERICANS,
WE NEED TO HELP EACH OTHER, ANY WAY WE CAN.
MAYBE YOU DON'T NEED THE MONEY, SO DO IT
FOR A FRIEND, A NEIGHBOR IN NEED, A COLLEGE STUDENT, YOUR
CHURCH, A CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION,
OR ANYONE WHO COMES TO MIND. JUST BE SURE YOU DO IT!
Here are a few things I hve learned:
1) After you get your mailing list, mail
out the letters while the list is still fresh.
2) When you handle a lot of letters, you
may want to get an electric letter opener.
3) Be cool, keep your job
until you get the cash, then, set goals.
STAY HONEST. DO NOT PROCRASTINATE. SEE
HOW YOUR LIFE CAN CHANGE.
JUST DO THE MATH, IT REALLY WORKS! EVERY
GOD BLESS US AND DON'T FORGET WE ARE FRIENDS HELPING
LET'S HELP EACH OTHER OUT!!!

1. This money chain letter is very similar to a letter that was collected
a few months prior to this one. See me2014-04-30_RetAttorney_n6sDx6q200
. As noted at this link, this letter goes back at least to a 2005 letter which reports that
an attorney received the exact same amount, $2,344,178.00. It may be useful
for the reader to examine the comments after
the 2014-04 letter. Both the above and the 2014-04 letter
gave the same web address to purchase a mailing list. On both letters I
have obscured this, and also the last names and street addresses of prior
(1) formatting, for example the prior letter used centering
for the third page and had concluding text after the list of names
(2) in the fourth line, "$71,000" has become "471,000.00",
(3) in the second to last line on page 1, "you" has been
incorrectly capitalized above to "You", confusing the text
(4) the line "STILL NOT SURE ABOUT IT: JUST PRAY ABOUT
IT" in the 2014-04 letter has been omitted above.
3. This letter claims: "It has worked every time" and that a 7.5% is
a conservative estimate of the return rate. Consider that the attorney reports
that from his second mailing of 500 copies he received $2,344,178 in cash.
This is the exact same amount reported in the 2005 and 2014-04 letters,
so we can presume this claim comes from the original author. This implies
there were 2,344,178 active participants in 2005, who would have in turn
sent out 200 (or more) copies each, a total of 2,344,178 x 200 = 468,835,600
copies mailed. The author repeatedly states that a 7.5% return rate can be
expected from this letter. But lets assume it is only 5%, and see how
many letters would be generated. Then 468,835,600 x .05 = 23,441,780 people
would have become active participants in the scheme. So they should have
mailed out a minimum of 200 letters each. That is 23,441,780 x 200 = 4,688,356,000
letters. That is 4.6 billion letters, which is more than 14 copies for every
man, woman and child in the United States (316.1 million in 2013). Note
we have greatly under-estimated the total that would have been mailed
in the last ten years if the claims in the letter were accurate.
4. Of course not any where near 4.6 billion copies have been mailed. This
means that the numbers and return rates stated in the letter are fictional.
But I suspect that enough have been mailed that most people who would be
inclined to participate have already seen the letter, or one similar to it.
