Parents of 15-year-old find $71,000 cash hidden in his closet.
Does this headline look familiar? Of course it does.
You most likely have just seen this story recently 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
back of her 15-year-old
son's closet. Nothing could have prepared her for the shock she got when
opened the bag and
found it was full of cash. Five dollar bills, twenties, fifties and
- all neatly rubber-banded in
"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
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 up. Little did they suspect that where the money came from
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
type of 'chain-letter' to
E-mail addresses that he obtained off of the Internet. Everyday after
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
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
$5 dollar bill to the
person at the top of the list, then delete that address and move the
addresses up, and finally
to add your name to the bottom of the list. The letter goes on to state
you would receive
several thousand dollars in five dollar bills within 2 weeks if you sent
the letter with your name
at the bottom of the 3-address list "I get junk E-mail all the time, and
really didn't think it was
gonna 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 bills.
"About a week later I rode [my bike] down to the post office and my box
1 magazine and
about 300 envelopes stuffed in it. There was also a yellow slip that
had to go up to the [post
office] counter- I thought I was in trouble or something (laughs)". He
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
time for my homework". He
had also been riding his bike to several of the area's banks and
the $5 bills for twenties,
fifties and hundreds. "I didn't want the banks to get suspicious so I
riding to different banks
with like five thousand at a time in my backpack. I would usually tell
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
to do it for me and my
dad would have to come in and do it, but I just rode to the next bank
the street (laughs).
" Surprisingly, the boy didn't have any reason to be afraid. The
news team examined and
investigated the so-called 'chain-letter' the boy was sending out and
that it wasn't a
chain-letter at all. In fact, it was completely legal according to US
and Lottery Laws, Title
18, Section 1302 and 1341, or Title 18, Section 3005 in the US code,
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
"Please add me to your
mailing list". This simple note made the letter legal because he was
exchanging a service (adding the
purchaser's 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
do the exact same thing
he was doing, simply by following the instructions in this letter.

Here are instructions on how to make $10,000 US cash in the next 2
There are 3 addresses listed below.
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".
Then delete that name, move the other 2 up and put your name at the
Now start sending this ENTIRE e-mail back out to people.
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
letter with your name in the
Then, those 400 people will move your name up to the top and they will
send out 20 E-mails.
That totals 8,000 people that will receive this E-mail with your name at
top and they will each
send you a $5 bill.
8,000 people each sending you a $5 bill = $40,000 cash. That's if
responds to this
E-mail, but not everyone will, so you can expect more realistically to
receive about $10,000 in cash
($5 bills) in your mailbox.
This will work for anyone, anywhere in the world in any country, but
only a US CASH $5 bill.
The more E-mails you send out, the more cash you will receive. If each
person sends out 100
E-mails, there will be 1,000,000 people that receive this letter when
name reaches the top. If
only 1% of those people respond, you will still get $50,000 cash.

THERE'S NOTHING MORE TO DO. When your name reaches the top in a few
start receiving $5 bills from other people just like yourself, who are
willing to invest a $5 bill to
receive $10,000 cash.
If you don't try it - you will never know.

of posting that is not welcome in this discussion group. Surely the
name tells everyone what it is about ie distilling. It is extremely
important for the survival of this and any group that postings adhere
to the subject. Other groups have been destroyed by this sort of
behaviour and I as moderator will not let that happen here.
If members wanted to read this type of message I am sure there are
other groups that cater for it.
As the early members will remember to begin with this group was
moderated and I vetted all messages before sending on. I took this
function off because I thought that the members at that time were
acting responsibly and 'playing the game'. I do not want to impose
moderation on this group again, but that is always an option.
Let me make it plain off subject messages are not welcome here and
in future the poster can be deleted off the group. This is a genuine
warning to all.
Isnt it a shame that a few spoil it for the rest.
