Another stupid email spam chain came through today. I’m going on a rant, stop reading if you want but since it probably applies to you please continue on.
How STUPID are you people?
This SPAM EMAIL about Gates paying you to forward the email is still going around! its been going on for months, years, decades! It’s never going to end unless all you stupid people get off the internet and leave it to those with a little more ability to distinguish between the fake and the real!
Actually, I should not call you people stupid, some of you have undergraduates and masters degrees, some attended the school of hard knocks, and some of you are just hillbillies, but still, YOU SHOULD ALL KNOW BETTER! ESPECIALLY when its been going on for years! Each year some TV station, magazine article, newspaper tells you this is a HOAX, SPAM, NOT TRUE!
Just where did you go to school? Texas? Illinois? Minnesota? Timbuktu? You need to get a refund on your education.
When will you people REALIZE BILL GATES IS NOT PAYING YOU MONEY?
I mean, stop and think a moment.
Even if he wanted to, how could he get your legal name and address to send the check to? Do you really think he could pull all the phone companies, cable companies, cell phone companies, computer companies, email service companies, and all businesses from around the world to provide him ALL your email addresses and match it up with your name and mailing address? Or you think if he did have your name and mailing address he could count all the emails you specifically sent with this header, keep track of your individual email(s) out, track the other stupid people who forward it on and their emails sent out from yours, decides you did good, sends you a check to IAMSTUPID@NUMBNUTS.COM, and the check will automatically appear in your postal mailbox a couple of weeks later?
You people are SOOOO GULLIBLE!!! Hey, tell you what, I have some beachfront property in Arizona up for sale. Send me whatever you think it is worth, I am no longer interested in keeping it due to the $100.00 yearly taxes due.
For those of you who don’t want to buy my beachfront Arizona property I have a bridge on the East Coast I am also willing to sell for best offer.
Where is Bill Engvall when you need him?
Here’s your sign! Please print and hang it around your neck.
email sent out:
Ok guys, my lawyer’s paralegal sent this one to me and if it doesn’t work, they are aware that we all will be coming to visit them for a law suit for false advertisement! J
THIS TOOK TWO PAGES OF THE TUESDAY USA TODAY – IT IS FOR REAL
To all of my friends, I do not usually forward messages, but this is from my friend Pearl 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? 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 Pepsi Co against General Electric not too long a go.
My brother’s girlfriend got in on this a few months ago When I went to visit him for the Baylor/UT

Thought this was a scam myself, But two weeks after receiving this e-mail and for warding it on.
Microsoft contacted me for my address and within days, I received a check for $24,800.00 .
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
We’re not going to help them out with their e-mail beta test without getting a little something for our time.
game, she showed me her check. It was for the sum of $4, 324.44 and was stamped ‘Paid I n Full’.
