Recently, I have received an Unsolicited Commercial E-mail from you.
I do not like UCE's and I would like to inform you that sending
unsolicited messages to someone while he or she may have to pay for
reading your message may be illegal. Anyway, it is highly annoying
and not welcome by anyone. It is rude, after all.

If you think that this is a good way to advertise your products or
services you are mistaken. Spamming will only make people hate you, not
buy from you.

If you have any list of people you send unsolicited commercial emails to,
REMOVE me from such list immediately. I suggest that you make this list
just empty.

----------------------------------------------------

If you are not an administrator of any site and still have received
this message then your email address is being abused by some spammer.
They fake your address in From: or Reply-To: header. In this case,
you might want to show this message to your system administrator, and
ask him/her to investigate this matter.

Note to the postmaster(s): I append the text of UCE in question to
this message; I would like to hear from you about action(s) taken.
This message has been sent to postmasters at the host that is
mentioned as original sender's host (I do realize that it may be
faked, but I think that if your domain name is being abused this way
you might want to learn about it, and take actions) and to the
postmaster whose host was used as mail relay for this message. If
message was sent not by your user, could you please compare time when
this message was sent (use time in Received: field of the envelope
rather than Date: field) with your sendmail logs and see what host was
using your sendmail at this moment of time.

Thank you.

DISCOVER WHAT EXPERTS ARE CALLING THE MOST INCREDIBLE PART TIME OR
FULL TIME MONEY MAKING BUSINESS AVAILABLE TODAY!

AND IN DOING SO, YOU CAN JOIN THE RANKS OF THOSE EARNING $5,000.00+
PER WEEK, WORKING FROM HOME

What follows is information on the POWERFUL, EXPLOSIVE, OPPORTUNITY
you now have to join the fastest growing group I know of REAL PEOPLE,
WHO ARE RAPIDLY BECOMING WEALTHY!

We are an international group of individuals with very diverse
backgrounds. It takes no special knowledge or experience to succeed
with what we do. Our members include:

attorneys
physicians
CPA's and licensed financial consultants
housewives
students
blue collar workers
It really doesn't matter!

Since the original founders of our organization first banded
together just over three years ago, we have grown to over 14,000 in
our membership throughout the United States and Canada and we are
adding literally 100's of new associates every day.

WHY ARE WE GROWING SO RAPIDLY?

BECAUSE WE ARE MAKING SO MUCH MONEY. THAT'S WHY!

We are all independent thinking entrepreneurs who believe that the
working class of our society will prosper financially in the years to
come ONLY BY TAKING DEFINITIVE ACTIONS TODAY! We all make our
substantial livings by simply helping others to learn as we have, just
what logical actions to take.

HERE ARE 15 GOOD REASONS YOU SHOULD SERIOUSLY CONSIDER JOINING US...

1. YOU REALLY CAN EARN $5,000+ PER WEEK, WORKING FROM YOUR HOME....
By and large, the majority of us already are. Why not you too?

2. IT'S FAST AND EASY....
You can be up and going, trained and generating a HUGE CASH FLOW,
within 24 hours from the time you decide to join. All you need is a
phone!!

3. PROFITS THAT BOTH BUSINESS EXECUTIVES AND ENTREPRENEURS USUALLY
ONLY DREAM OF.... A 90% profit margin on sales of $1,250 or $6,250
respectively, means YOU NET EITHER $1,125.00 OR $5,625.00 ON **EVERY**
SALE!!

4. EASY TO MARKET -- WE DON'T DO ANY SELLING....
Literally, all we do is explain what we offer and approximately ONE
IN FOUR BUYS!! THERE IS NO HIGH PRESSURE (not even any LOW
pressure)! Fully 25% of our contacts just take our products right
out of our hands.

5. IT'S NOT MLM....
This is just a straight up traditional business selling highly
marketable and valuable products that everyone wants, but can't get
anyplace else for ANYWHERE NEAR the price. (Our $1,250 product's
ACTUAL VALUE is estimated by our industry's professionals at between
$10,000 and $15,000!!!) You can choose to join just for the powerful
products we offer, or you can do as many of us do and offer these
powerful products to others as well. The choice is yours!

6. NO INVENTORY MAINTENANCE OR ORDER FULFILLMENT....
Spend ALL of your time GENERATING PROFITS. All you do is explain the
products and the business. Then, when someone purchases our
life-changing products, they are drop-shipped to your customers WITH
AN UNCONDITIONAL TEN DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE.
(FYI; our product return rate is incredibly low)

7. DEAL EXCLUSIVELY WITH ONLY INTERESTED PROSPECTS....
You will be talking ONLY with individuals who have previously
inquired about our products and/or business!! If you have
even a LITTLE BIT of business or sales experience, you know that this
fact alone is a marketer's dream come true.

8. ALL PROCEEDS ARE PAID DIRECTLY TO YOU
Unlike most MLMs, this business REALLY IS your own! Most "companies"
tell you that you'll be operating your own business, but get you to
sell their product with all the checks endorsed to, THEM. This leaves
YOU with -0- financial control in "your own" business. Here, YOU'RE
IN CONTROL!!

9. ALL THE FRESH HOT LEADS YOU CAN HANDLE....
So many people have been looking for a business like this for so long,
that you'll have MORE ALREADY INTERESTED PROSPECTS TO TALK TO EVERY
DAY THAN YOU'LL EVER KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH. In fact, we will show you
how to decide which of the people who have contacted you, you should
call back. It is truly a matter of YOU DECIDING WHO GETS TO LEARN
ABOUT WHAT WE HAVE TO OFFER. You will have so many people contacting
you for information, you won't be able to handle the full response any
more than we can!

10. TRAINING & MARKETING SUPPORT SECOND TO NONE....
First, we'll train you in our unique, tried and proven marketing
techniques. Then, you'll begin calling back your first batch of people
who asked for information. Most people who market our products make 1
or 2 sales their VERY FIRST WEEK.

But if you DO have any trouble making your sales at first, we're ALWAYS
there to HELP YOU MAKE THEM!! Incidentally, even when WE sell them for
you, they still make the check out directly to YOU. YOU still get to
keep ALL OF THE PROFIT! NOT BAD, HUH?

11. OUR PRODUCTS STAND ON THEIR OWN..
Simply put, what we sell to earn our EXTRAORDINARY LIVING, IS
EDUCATION; INCREDIBLE AND VERIFIABLY FACTUAL INFORMATION that 99% of
the world's population doesn't even know exists -- INCLUDING most
Attorneys, CPA's, Tax Experts, Tax Consultants, Financial Consultants,
Investment Strategists and the like. In fact, this information is so
valuable to so many people, that fully HALF OF THE PEOPLE JOINING OUR
ASSOCIATION ARE DOING SO JUST TO OBTAIN THE KNOWLEDGE FROM OUR
PRODUCTS! SEE WHAT I MEAN.....

HERE ARE EXAMPLES OF WHAT YOU WILL LEARN...

The single greatest SECRET the ultra wealthy have used for
generations to minimize or even eliminate their tax liabilities,
legally! YOU DONíT HAVE TO BE A MILLIONAIRE TO BENEFIT FROM THIS!

The SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT STRATEGY the super wealthy have utilized
to protect their families' assets from liens, judgments, and
seizures! (Did you know that today, thousands of American families
a month are losing everything they have worked years for, through
liens, judgments and seizures?) THEY DIDNíT THINK THEY NEEDED
PROTECTION, EITHER, UNTIL IT WAS TOO LATE! NOW YOU CAN PROTECT
YOUR FAMILY'S ASSETS TOO, QUICKLY AND INEXPENSIVELY!

How the wealthy consistently pass their wealth from generation to
generation WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY ANY PROBATE OR ESTATE TAXES. AND,
THE ASSETS CHANGE HANDS IMMEDIATELY UPON A DEATH, NOT YEARS LATER!
WE CERTAINLY ARENíT TALKING WILLS AND LIVING TRUSTS HERE!

How to protect your family's PERSONAL AND FINANCIAL PRIVACY. YES,
YOU CAN, IF YOU KNOW HOW!!

How to TAKE MONEY OUT of a special account we can show you how to
establish, FROM AROUND THE BLOCK, OR AROUND THE WORLD, with no
paper or electronic trail for snoops to follow! Only YOU know you
got the funds!

How to set yourself up in business, with MORE PROTECTION than that
offered by incorporating, for much less money, AND WITH NO
GOVERNMENTAL REPORTING OR ACCOUNTING REQUIREMENTS!

How the really wealthy are able to achieve FINANCIAL RETURNS
(without risking their money!) WHICH ARE TEN OR MORE TIMES what we
are offered! BUT, HERE'S THE GOOD NEWS! YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE A
TON OF MONEY TO SHARE IN THESE RETURNS!

How to get for FREE the kind of PERSONALIZED FINANCIAL ADVICE the
super wealthy have had to spend tens or even hundreds of thousands
of dollars to get! FREE, ONE-ON-ONE CONSULTATIONS!!

AND MUCH, MUCH, MUCH, MORE!!!

I THINK YOU CAN SEE WHY THE VERY SPECIAL INFORMATION WE HAVE TO
OFFER IS IN SUCH HIGH DEMAND! AND WE ARE THE ONLY ONES OFFERING
ALL THIS INFORMATION! BELIEVE ME, THAT'S THE POSITION YOU WANT
TO BE IN!!

12. CREDIBILITY....
Our association is only about four years old, but has already
established itself as a well recognized, well reputed and universally
respected INTERNATIONAL organization.

13. INCREDIBLE, VERIFIABLE TRACK RECORDS OF SUCCESS....
You'll be introduced to many, MANY others in our association (mostly
just average middle class people like you and me), WHO ARE ALREADY
EARNING (MANY) THOUSANDS OF $$$ PER WEEK IN THIS BUSINESS. And, they
have been making this money since almost the first week after joining
us! Because of HOW we do what we do, there's a VERY short cash flow
curve from when you get started. Sometimes less than one (1) WEEK!!

14. SPEND LOTS MORE TIME WITH YOUR FAMILY....
If you are a seasoned parent, you already know how important this is.
If you are a new parent, YOU NEED TO DISCOVER THE IMPORTANCE OF IT!

15. THIS IS IT -- NO HYPE -- NO EXAGGERATION....
In over 20 years of Fortune 500 management experience, and several
more of owning and operating my own (some very successful) businesses,
before I TOOK A REAL GOOD LOOK AT THIS, of course I thought I'd seen
it all. But when I ran into this, as soon as I got the full picture,
it turned my previous view of business and even the views I had of
myself, INSIDE OUT!! I got started back in April of 1996, and haven't
had a second thought since!

Looking back now, I CAN TELL YOU TWO THINGS WITHOUT ANY
HESITATION WHATSOEVER...

1. You don't have to sell very much at all in this business to earn
a FAR ABOVE AVERAGE INCOME. And, if you wish to work at it,
you can even generate absolutely VULGAR profits, and

2. You can expect an UNUSUAL BONUS. Not long after I got up
and going, I learned that operating this business is not only very
profitable, but also A LOT OF FUN!! In fact, it is so much fun, and
so lucrative that within six weeks of starting I dumped everything
else I was doing, to do this full-time (Only about 30 hours a week!).
AWESOME!!
