    Content of the mail is.......

    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.

    Regards.

    Oh!! You mean to say it's fake right?? why people are making themselves and others fools...Is it anyway helpful to AOL or anybody else....

    Because sometimes i saw another type of mails like....my husband/baby is suffering with some serious disease and if you forward it to all ur friends...for each message you send AOL or some other charities will pay for it..Is it true??was it helpful to them anyway?

    Nope nothing of that sort is true. Its just chain mailling and no one who passes gets paid nor do any company can pay you by tracking that.

    The main aim of such people is to start the chain mailling and nothing more.

    Microsoft is giving money away? If thats true, then why won't they just fix my computer for free instead?


    I always like the emails that threaten something in your life will go terribly wrong unless you send the email to 10+ of your friends...

    I've received something like that message a couple of months ago and even on my mobile. I just can't understand why there are still people letting them be fooled by these chain messages/letters. Doesn't it obviously show how invalid the given details in the letter were? It's just too pathetic.
