A stupid question about an email.



I recieved this email, which is posted below. Please tell me this is not true.


Subject: PLEEEEEEASE READ!!!! it was on the news!

This thing is for real. Rest assured AOL and Intel will follow through with
their promises for fear of facing a multimillion-dollar class action suit
similar to the one filed by PepsiCo against General Electric not too long

Dear Friends; Please do not take this for a junk letter. Bill Gates sharing
his fortune. If you ignore this, You will repent later. Microsoft and AOL are
now the largest Internet companies and in an effort to make sure that
Internet Explorer remains the most widely used program, Microsoft and AOL are
running an e-mail beta test.

When you forward this e-mail to friends, Microsoft can and will track it (
If you are a Microsoft Windows user) For a two weeks time period.

For every person that you forward this e-mail to, Microsoft will pay you
$245.00 For every person that you sent it to that forwards it on, Microsoft
will pay you $243.00 and for every third person that receives it, You will be
paid $241.00. Within two weeks, Microsoft will contact you for your address
and then send you a check.

Regards. Charles S Bailey General Manager Field Operations

1-800-842-2332 Ext. 1085 or 904-1085 or RNX

I thought this was a scam myself, But two weeks after receiving this e-mail
and forwarding it on. Microsoft contacted me for my address and withindays, I
receive a check for $24,800.00. You need to respond before the beta testing
is over. If anyone can afford this, Bill gates is the man.

It's all marketing expense to him. Please forward this to as many people as
possible. You are bound to get at least $10,000.00. We're not going to help
them out with their e-mail beta test without getting a little something for
our time. My brother's girlfriend got in on this a few months ago. When I
went to visit him for the Baylor/UT game. She showed me her check. It was for
the sum of $4,324.44 and was stamped "Paid in full"

Like I said before, I know the law, and this is for real.

Intel and AOL are now discussing a merger which would make them the largest
Internet company and in an effort make sure that AOL remains the most widely
used program, Intel and AOL are running an e-mail beta test.

When you forward this e-mail to friends, Intel can and will track it( if you
are a Microsoft Windows user)for a two week time period.

Try it; What have you got to lose
