Rating: STUPID - If you have passed on this email you are an idiot. This email scam is over 10 years old and NOW they are adding things like "Time for some bailout money for us" and it was on Good Morning America on Wednesday.. IF it was it is because it is a SCAM.
ANY Email asking you to send it to all your friends, no matter what the sentiment is what is called a "Poor Mans Virus". It is meant to clutter the internet traffic. To increase traffic and to take down the internet.  In a security report that came out in 2004, someone was repeatedly attacking the internet around the world. The suspicion was that it is Al Queda, trying to take down the internet and to harm world economies.  Think about how much business is now on the net.  STOP SENDING OUT EMAILS that say forward this to everyone you know... or use guilt trips saying how bad a person you are for NOT sending it on. Whomever sent this had NOT talked to a girl who made $13,450 .. notice no name is EVER given.

This is soooooo for real.....I just spoke with a girl that received a check for $13,!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT A SCAM, pass it on what do we have to lose....!!!!!! i also spoke with an attorney and he said this is not a scam, and the word is if bill gates doesn't make good on his promise with this email beta test he will have a huge lawsuit on his hands as did GE awhile ago.  pass it on and let's see what happens. it's our turn for some "bail out"

SORRY EVERYBODY.. JUST HAD TO TAKE THE CHANCE!!! I'm an attorney, And I know the law. This thing is for real. Rest assured AOL20and 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 a go.    (No such lawsuit ever was filed this is another hook)

De ar Fr i ends: Please do not take this for a junk letter. Bill Gates sharing his fortune. If you ignore this, You will repent later .  ( No lawyer in his right mind makes a threat like this against the richest man in the world... )

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, Micro soft 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.

 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 within days, I recei ved a check for $24, 800.00 .

 ( This is over 10 years old. telling you to get in before the Beta Test is over is just another way to get you to do it.)

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 (Anyone who has gotten $10,000 from this test in 2008 contact me and I will double your money)   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 I n Full'. (Business Checks ARE NOT RETURNED TO THE PERSON CASHING THE CHECK) The copyright in this email belongs to Harsco Corporation or to its relevant subsidiary and its contents are confidential.
