To all of my friends, I do not usually forward messages, But this is from
my good friend Pearlas Sandborn and she really is an attorney.

If she says that this will work - It will work. After all, What have you
got to lose? SORRY EVERYBODY.. JUST HAD TO TAKE THE CHANCE!!! I’m an
attorney, And I know the law. 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 ago.

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
292-1085 (e-mail address removed) (e-mail address removed)

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 affoard 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 fullâ€

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????
