It has helped to demonstrate that this is a simple, harmless, and fun way to make some extra money at home.

To my astonishment, I received total $610,470.00 in 21 weeks, with money still coming in."
Pam Hedland, Fort Lee, New Jersey

"This program has been around for a long time but I never believed in it. But one day when I received this again in the mail I decided to gamble my $25 on it. I followed the simple instructions and walaa... 3 weeks later the money started to come in. First month I only made $240.00 but the next 2 months after that I made a total of $290,000.00. So far, in the past 8 months by re-entering the program, I have made over $710,000.00 and I am doing it again. The key to success in this program is to follow the simple steps and not change anything.''
John Litton, Baltimore, Maryland

"THINK ABOUT IT! Before you delete this e-mail 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! You will definitely get back what you invested. Any doubts you have will vanish when your first orders come in. IT WORKS!"
Jody Jacobs, Richmond, VA

MULTI-LEVEL MARKETING HAS GAINED INCREASED POPULARITY & RESPECT.
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 through multi-level methods by the beginning of the new millennium. This is a multi-billion dollar industry and of the 500,000 millionaires in the U.S., 20% (100,000) made their fortune in the last several years in MLM. Statistics have shown that 45 people become millionaires everyday through Multi-Level Marketing.

You may have heard this story before, but over the summer Donald Trump made an appearance on the David Letterman show. Dave asked him what he would do if he lost everything and had to start over from scratch. Without hesitating, Trump said he would find a good network marketing company and get to work. The audience started to hoot and boo him. He looked out at the audience and deadpanned his response "That's why I'm sitting up here and you are all sitting out there!"

With network marketing you have two sources of income. Direct commissions from sales you make yourself and commissions from sales made by people you introduce to the business. Residual income is the secret of the wealthy. It means investing time or money once and getting paid again and again and again. In network marketing, it also means getting paid for the work of others.

HERE'S HOW THIS AMAZING PROGRAM WILL MAKE YOU THOUSAND$ OF DOLLAR$ !
This is the GREATEST Multi-Level Mail Order Marketing anywhere. This is not a chain letter, but a perfectly legal money making opportunity. This multi-level marketing program WORKS 100% EVERY TIME. I am sure that you could use up to $50,000 or more in the next 90 days. Please read this program carefully.

Basically, this is what you do: As with all multi-level businesses, we build our business by recruiting new partners and selling our products. Every state in the USA allows you to recruit new multi-level business partners, and we offer a product for every dollar sent. Your orders come by mail and are filled by e-mail, so you are not involved in personal selling. You do it privately in your own home, store or office.

E-mail 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 by utilizing e-mail. Get your piece of this action NOW!

IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOREVER AND I AM LIVING PROOF THAT IT WORK$ !
My name is Jonathan Rourke. 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. Over the past year, I incurred many unforeseen financial problems. I owed my family, friends and creditors over $35,000. The economy was taking a toll on my business and I just couldn't seem to make ends meet. 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 the experience in hopes that this will change your life FOREVER FINANCIALLY!

In mid December, I received this program via e-mail. Six months prior to receiving this program, I had been sending away for information on various business opportunities. All of the programs I received, in my opinion, were not cost effective. They were either too difficult to comprehend or the initial investment was too risky to see if they would work or not. One claimed that I would make a million dollars in one year...it didn't tell me I'd have to write a book to make it!

But like I was saying, in December of 1997 I received this program. I didn't send for it, or ask for it, they just got my name off a mailing list. THANK GOODNESS FOR THAT! After reading it several times, to make sure I was reading it correctly, I couldn't believe my eyes. Here was a MONEYMAKING PHENOMENON. The enclosed information is something I almost let slip through my fingers. Fortunately, sometime later I re-read everything and gave some thought and study to it.

I could invest as much as I wanted to start, without putting me further into debt. After I got a pencil and paper and figured it out, I would at least get my money back. But like most of you I was still a little skeptical and a little worried about the legal aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the U.S. Post Office (1-800-725-2161 24-hrs) and they confirmed that it is indeed legal! After determining the program was LEGAL and NOT A CHAIN LETTER, I decided "WHY NOT."

Initially I sent out 10,000 e-mails. It cost me about $15 for my time on-line. The great thing about e-mail is that I don't need any money for printing to send out the program, and because all of my orders are fulfilled via e-mail, the only expense is my time. I am telling you like it is, I hope it doesn't turn you off, but I promised myself that I would not "rip-off" anyone, no matter how much money it cost me

In less than one week, I was starting to receive orders for REPORT #1. By January 13, I had received 26 orders for REPORT #1. By January 30, I had received 196 orders for REPORT #2. By March 1, two months after my initial e-mail of 10,000, I received $58,000 with more coming in every day. I paid off ALL my debts and bought a new car. Please take time to read the attached program! Remember that 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 to place your name in a different place. If you do, it won't work and you'll lose out on a lot of money! In order for this program to work, you must meet your goal of 10+ orders for REPORT #1, and 100+ orders for REPORT #2 and you will make $50,000 or more in 90 days.

If you choose not to participate in this program, I am 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 are if financial trouble like I was, or you want to start your own business, consider this a sign. I DID!

Sincerely,
Jonathan Rourke

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

FOLLOW THE SIMPLE STEPS AND I GUARANTEE YOUR FINANCIAL DREAMS WILL COME TRUE!

STEP ONE: PLACE YOUR ORDER FOR ALL 5 REPORTS SHOWN ON THE LIST BELOW
Make sure you order ALL 5 of these reports. You will need all 5 reports so that you can save them on your computer and resell them. Your total cost is $25.00 (5 x $5). For each report, send to the person whose name appears ON THAT LIST next to the report the following:

  1. Include $5 cash (U.S. Currency Only) for each report. Checks NOT accepted.
  2. Always make sure the cash is concealed by wrapping it in at least 2 sheets of paper.
  3. On one of those sheets of paper write down:
  4. Make sure your return address is on your envelope top left corner in case of any mail problems.

STEP TWO: SAVE YOUR REPORTS AND MAKE COPIES
Within a few days you will receive, via e-mail, each of the 5 reports from these 5 different individuals. Save them on your computer so they will be accessible for you to send to the 1,000's of people who will order them from you. Also make a floppy of these reports and keep it on your desk in case something happens to your computer.

STEP THREE: MAKE A COPY OF THIS LETTER TO MAIL OUT
It is IMPORTANT that you do NOT alter the names of the people who are listed next to each report, or their sequence on the list in any way other than what is instructed below in steps 1 through 6. If you do, you will loose out on the bulk of your profits. Once you understand the way this works, you will also see how it does not work if you change it.

Remember that this method has been tested, and it will NOT work if altered! People have tried to put their friends/relatives names on all five thinking they could get all the money. But it does not work this way. Believe me, others have tried to be greedy and then nothing happened. So do not try to change anything other than what is instructed. If you do, it will not work for you. Remember that honesty reaps the reward!

  1. After you have ordered all 5 reports, take this advertisement and REMOVE the name & address of the person in REPORT # 5. This person has made it through the cycle and is no doubt counting their fortune.
  2. Move the name & address in REPORT # 4 down TO REPORT # 5.
  3. Move the name & address in REPORT # 3 down TO REPORT # 4.
  4. Move the name & address in REPORT # 2 down TO REPORT # 3.
  5. Move the name & address in REPORT # 1 down TO REPORT # 2.
  6. Insert YOUR name & address in the REPORT # 1 Position.

Please make sure you copy every name & address ACCURATELY! Take this entire letter, with the modified list of names, and save it on your computer. DO NOT MAKE ANY OTHER CHANGES. Save this on a disk along with your reports as a backup precaution.

STEP FOUR: MARKETING YOUR BUSINESS
To assist you with marketing your business on the internet, the 5 reports you purchase will provide you with invaluable marketing information which includes how to send bulk e-mails legally, where to find thousands of FREE classified ads and much more.

Let's assume that you and those involved will decide to start small, just to see how it goes and send out a minimum of 2,000 e-mails each. Keep in mind that many people will send out hundreds of thousands e-mails over the course of the program.

Let's also assume that each mailing receives a minimum response rate of 0.5%. That means that 1 out of every 200 people is just like you. They are smart enough to realize the enormous earnings potential of this program. We of course realize that more people than that will understand the true wealth possibilities. Using a good list the response could be much better.

NOW using these minimum assumptions, let's do the math!

  1. Your initial mailing of 2,000 with a 0.5% response, nets you 10 orders for Report # 1.
  2. Those 10 people respond by sending out 2,000 e-mail each for a total of 20,000. Out of those 20,000 e-mails, 0.5% respond with orders, which is 100 orders for Report # 2.
  3. Those 100 people mail out 2,000 e-mails each for a total of 200,000 e-mails. The 0.5% response to that is 1000 orders for Report # 3.
  4. The next 1000 people send out 2,000 e-mails each for a total of 2 million e-mails sent out. The 0.5% response to that is 10,000 orders for Report # 4.
  5. Those 10,000 people send out 2,000 e-mails each for a total of 20,000,000 (20 million) e-mails. The 0.5% response to that is 100,000 orders for Report # 5

Your total income in this example is:
Report #1 10 x $5 = $50
Report #2 100 x $5 = $500
Report #3 1,000 x $5 = $5,000
Report #4 10,000 x $5 = $50,000
Report #5 100,000 x $5 = $500,000
Grand Total = $555,550

REMEMBER THIS EXAMPLE WAS ASSUMING ONLY .05% RESPONDED TO 2,000 E-MAILS SENT. The numbers do not lie. Get a pencil & paper and figure out the worst possible responses and no matter how you calculate it, you will still make a lot of money! NOW, Dare to think for a moment what would happen if everyone or half or even one fourth of those people mailed 100,000 e-mails each or more? There are over 150 million people on the Internet worldwide and about 50,000 new people get online every month! Believe me, many people will do just that, and more! You obviously have an Internet connection and e-mail is FREE!

STEP FIVE: FULFILL YOUR ORDERS
For every $5 you receive, all you must do is e-mail them the Report they ordered. That's it. Always provide same day service on all orders. This will guarantee that the e-mail they send out, with your name and address on it, will be prompt because they cannot advertise until they receive the report.

Before you make your decision as to whether or not you participate in this program. Please answer one question: DO YOU WANT TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE? If the answer is yes, please consider the following facts about this program:

A PERSONAL NOTE FROM THE ORIGINATOR OF THIS PROGRAM.
By the time you have read the enclosed program and reports, you should have concluded that an amateur could not have created such a legal program. Let me tell you a little about myself. I had a profitable business for 10 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 that 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.

I should also point out that I will not see a penny of this money, nor anyone else who has provided a testimonial for this program. I have already made over 4 MILLION DOLLARS! I have retired from the program after sending out over 16,000 programs. NOW I have several offices that make this and several other programs here and over seas.

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. Follow the program EXACTLY AS INSTRUCTED. Do not change it in any way. It works exceedingly well as it is NOW.

Remember to e-mail a copy of this exciting report to everyone 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!

MORE TESTIMONIALS
"My name is Mitchell. My wife, Jody and I live in Chicago. I am an accountant with a major U.S. Corporation and I make pretty good money. When I received this program I grumbled to Jody about receiving ''junk mail''. I made fun of the whole thing, spouting my knowledge of the population and percentages involved. I ''knew'' it wouldn't work. Jody totally ignored my supposed intelligence and few days later she jumped in with both feet. I made merciless fun of her, and was ready to lay the old ''I told you so'' on her when the thing didn't work. Well, the laugh was on me! Within 3 weeks she had received 50 responses. Within the next 45 days she had received total $ 147,200.00 ... all cash! I was shocked. I have joined Jody in her ''hobby''.
Mitchell Wolf M.D., Chicago, Illinois

"Not being the gambling type, it took me several weeks to make up my mind to participate in this plan. But conservative that I am, I decided that the initial investment was so little that there was just no way that I wouldn't get enough orders to at least get my money back''. '' I was surprised when I found my medium size post office box crammed with orders. I made $319,210.00 in the first 12 weeks. The nice thing about this deal is that it does not matter where people live. There simply isn't a better investment with a faster return and so big."
Dan Sondstrom, Alberta, Canada

''I had received this program before. I deleted it, but later I wondered if I should have given it a try. Of course, I had no idea who to contact to get another copy, so I had to wait until I was e-mailed again by someone else...11 months passed then it luckily came again... I did not delete this one! I made more than $490,000 on my first try and all the money came within 22 weeks."
Susan De Suza, New York, New York

''It really is a great opportunity to make relatively easy money with little cost to you. I followed the simple instructions carefully and within 10 days the money started to come in. My first month I made $20,560.00 and by the end of third month my total cash count was $362,840.00. Life is beautiful, Thanks to Internet."
Fred Dellaca, Westport, New Zealand
