Dear Friends:
Parents of 15-year-old find $71,000 cash hidden in his closet. Does this
headline look familiar? Of course it does. You may have seen this story
featured on a major nightly news program (USA). His mother was cleaning and
putting laundry away when she came across a large brown paper bag that was
suspiciously buried beneath some clothes and a skateboard in the back of her
15-year-old son's closet. Nothing could have prepared her for the shock she
got when she opened the bag and found it was full of cash. Five dollar
bills, twenties, fifties and hundreds - al neatly rubber-banded in labeled

"My first thought was that he had robbed a bank", says the 41-year-old
woman, "There was over $71,000 dollars in that bag-that's more than my
husband earns in a year". The woman immediately called her husband at the
car-dealership where he worked to tell him what she'd discovered. He came
home right away and they drove together to the boy's school and picked him

Little did they suspect that where the money came from was more shocking
than actually finding it in the closet? As it turns out, the boy had been
sending out via E-mail on the Internet a type of 'chain-letter' to E-mail
addresses that he obtained off of the Internet. Everyday after school for
the past 2 months, he had been doing this right on his computer in his
bedroom. "I just got the E-mail one day and I figured what the heck, I put
my name on it like the instructions said and I started sending it out", says
the clever 15-year-old.

The E-mail letter listed 3 addresses and contained instructions to send one
$5 dollar bill to the person at the top of the list, then delete that
address and move the other 2 addresses up, and finally to add your name to
the bottom of the list. The letter goes on to state that you would receive
several thousand dollars in five dollar bills within 2 weeks if you sent out
the letter with your name at the bottom of the 3-address list "I get
junk E-mail all the time, and I really didn't think it was going to work",
the boy continues.

Within the first few days of sending out the E-mail, the Post Office Box
that his parents had gotten him for his video-game magazine subscriptions
began to fill up with not magazines, but envelopes containing $5 dollar

"About a week later I rode [my bike] down to the post office and my box had
1 magazine and about 300 envelopes stuffed in it. There was also a yellow
slip that said I had to go up to the [post office] counter-
I thought I was in trouble or something (laughs)". He goes on, "I went up to
the counter and they had a whole box of more mail for me. I had to ride back
home and empty out my backpack 'cause I couldn't carry it all".

Over the next few weeks, the boy continued sending out the E-mail. "The
money just kept coming in and I just kept sorting it and stashing it in the
closet, I barely had time for my homework". He had also been riding his bike
to several of the area's banks and exchanging the $5 bills for twenties,
fifties and hundreds. "I didn't want the banks to get suspicious so I kept
riding to different banks with like five thousand at a time in my backpack.
I would usually tell the lady at the bank counter that my dad had sent me in
[to exchange the money] and he was outside waiting for me. One time the lady
gave me a really strange look and told me that she wouldn't be able to do it
for me and my dad would have to come in and do it, but I just rode to the
next bank down the street (laughs)."

Surprisingly, the boy didn't have any reason to be afraid. The reporting
news team examined and investigated the so-called 'chain-letter' the boy was
sending out and found that it wasn't a chain-letter at all. In fact, it was
completely legal according to US Postal and Lottery Laws, Title 18, Section
1302 and 1341, or Title 18, Section 3005 in the US code, also in the code of
federal regulations, Volume 16, Sections 255 and 436, which state a product
or service must be exchanged for money received. Every five-dollar bill that
he received contained a little note that read, "Please add me to your
mailing list". This simple note made the letter legal because he was
exchanging a service (adding the purchasers name to his mailing list) for a
five-dollar fee. Here is the letter that the 15-year-old was sending out by
E-mail, you can do the exact same thing he was doing, simply by following
the instructions in this letter



Here are instructions on how to make at least $10,000 US cash in the next 2
weeks by only investing 5 dollars out of your pocket: There are 3 addresses
listed below.

1) Send the person at the top of the list a $5 bill wrapped in 2 pieces of
paper (to securely hide it), along with a note that says: "Please add me
to your mailing list", with your email address. Then delete that name,
move the other 2 up and put your name at the bottom.

2) Now start sending this ENTIRE thing back out to people (anybody) just
send it out to a valid E-mail address or newsgroup.
Just paste this ENTIRE message, with this true story, in a new

3) When 20 people receive it, those 20 people will move your name up to the
middle position and they will each send out 20.

That totals 400 people that will receive this letter with your name in the
middle. Then, those 400 people will move your name up to the top and they
will each send out 20 E-mails or post to 20 or more Newsgroups. That totals
8,000 people that will receive this E-mail or newsgroup posting with your
at the top and they will each send you a $5 bill. 8,000 people each sending
you a $5 bill, which equals $40,000 cash.

That's if everyone responds to this E-mail or Newsgroup posting, but not
everyone will, so you can expect more realistically to receive about $10,000
cash $5 bills in your mailbox.

This will work for anyone, anywhere in the world in any country, but send
only a US CASH $5 bill. The more E-mails you send out or newsgroups you post
to, the more cash you will receive. If each person sends out 100 E-mails or
posted to 100 Newsgroups, there will be 1,000,000 people that receive this
letter when
your name reaches the top. If only 1% of those people respond, you will
still get $50,000. Here is the list:

If you wish to post to newsgroups it is quick and easy. Just google and
download postXpert, it is a great program =)

THERE'S NOTHING MORE TO DO. When your name reaches the top in a few days,
you will start receiving $5 bills from other people just like yourself, who
are willing to invest a $5 bill and a stamp to receive $10,000 cash. If you
don't try it- you will never know. It Works, Its Legal, Its Easy, so Why
Not? Nothing ventured, nothing gained In the spirit of FUN, let's play......
