Hi All,

Microsoft Paying you - Not Fake
Dear Friends,
Please do not take this for a junk letter. Bill Gates is 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 week 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 week! s, Microsoft will contact you for your
address and
then send you a cheque.
Code:
Frnds I got $2163 today only.
So I am forwading to u frnds
Don't miss this chance
Regards,
Code:
 
This is really amazing I also got 5000 dollars via DD from
HDFC, thot it
was fake but it really worked..........the amount has been created to my
account, what did you get.
Thanks for forwarding this mail

245$!! To Keep IE Alive??!! Lolzz I wouldn't even do that to get money (if it was real i.e.)
I don't want IE to be alive! And moreover if they pay some 5k to every one person, how much money they'll spend on it? Lolzz Why and who starts all this crap?? What do they get out of it??

Don't be silly, of course it's not real. Chain letters usually aren't, no matter how much they insist they are.

No they cannot be. Even if they show screenshot of cheque from MS it must be for the Publisher center from MS

None of such chain mails are real.

Whenever I receive any such mail, I google it, find out the truth, and then reply back all to stop this.

I also got this letter back in the day and also was skeptical, but one thing I did not get: what does forwarding an email has anything to do with keeping MS Explorer alive?

My theory is that Microsoft itself made this letter, spread it just for the effect and was sure that people will not believe it and the ones that WILL believe will forward it to everyone and feel stupid later for being such fools. Microsoft (in my theory) wasn't gonna pay nothing to no one and will deny having anything to do with this BS. And the effect is complete...
