My Answer to Money Schemes (joke)

Post by Donald & Melissa Hell » Sun, 29 Sep 1996 04:00:00



I have, I think, a better approach to all of the get rich quick schemes posted
on the net, especially where they don't belong, like in the winemaking forum
here.

How about everyone sending me $5.00.   Just $5.00, and send a copy of this to
all of the usenet newsgroups every two weeks, without changes.  This way, only I
will get the money, right?  I will check from time to time to see how the
posting is going.  After I get all of this money, I will be rich, rich, rich!
Since we can't all get rich off of each other, why not just make me rich?  That
seems fair, doesn't it?  Of course, there _has_ to be some motivation in it for
you, doesn't there?  Aside from the good feeling of giving to a great cause
(me), I will randomly pick one of those who send me $5.00 and send him or her
part of my fortune that I got from this scheme.  Of course, since there is no
way of knowing how much I will get from this scheme, I can't tell you ahead of
time just how much that will be.  But, if it's over $50,000, you will get 10% of
the first $50,000, 5% of the next $50,000, then 2% of everything over $100,000!
Doesn't that seem fair?  Never mind that the chance of your name being picked
might be less than getting struck by lightning.  Just think of all of that
money.  And all you had to do is send me $5.00, which is probably almost nothing
to you.  And, for every $5.00 you send me, I will enter your name in my drawing
for another chance at a part of my soon-to-be-fortune.

Reply now.  Send your cash, checks, or money orders to me ASAP.

GREAT IDEA!!!!!!!

I'd like to add that I will be the first to give you my IOU $5 in
exchange for my portion of the profits, payable on receipt of my
first $100,000 of the profits!

I herby give my solemn promise that I will be overjoyed at receiving
all of that free money!  In anticipation of all of the profits, I'm
going to go buy a new Ferrari on credit first thing in the morning!

Gee whiz...I'm gonna be rich now!!!

know it's always sought after by everybody on the web.....

I'm beginning to become virtually rich!  I never believed it could come true.
