Money into your PayPal and this is proven in Oprah?
These e-mail scams keep coming again. Also there´s a request to join into a Yahoo group. Never believe this because they are all lies. If they use Oprah as a promotion tool that makes the lie even bigger. This is because they say anything for you to signup. This is a typical chain letter scam. Don´t ever bother to try because the top of list only get your money and you will get nothing. Also e-mail adresses who are joined into pyramid schemes and have PayPal account on same e-mail may be removed from PayPal forever because of scam. So in the end the victim will be you. Also even worse if you happen to use a business paypal account, then your business paypal e-mail will be removed and your company will be blacklisted.
The Internet has got thousands of cyber criminals out there. Never believe them!
you can read the letter below:
Hello Fellow Money-Seeker,
SPEND $14 TO MAKE $40,000. is that a deal or not!
it is working now and working very well.
That's Right. $40,000 dollars in your PayPal account and that's NO BULL!!!
IT WAS PROVEN ON OPRAH and is COMPLETELY LEGAL!!!
You may have heard of this program (or one like it) on 20/20 or even in the
Wall Street Journal. $14 Dollars... that's all it takes. I'll try to keep it
short and sweet.
To get started just right mouse click and copy this whole page and paste it
in an e-mail to edit it. Simply follow the instructions below and in 2 to 3
weeks, you will have as much as $40,000 dollars in your PayPal account or
Most people respond to this program because of the low investment ($14
dollars) and high profit potential. There is no limit to the income you can
generate from this (you can do it over and over). If you follow the
instructions, you will reach thousands of people! Honesty, Faith, and
Integrity make this system work.
I think everyone has heard of PayPal. Anyone with an e-mail address can join
for F*R*E*E*! If you're not already a PayPal user, the first thing you need
to do is sign up. It's really easy to set up and
it's F*R*E*E*!!! Just make sure you have a Business or Premier account or
you may be subject to a monthly income limitation which may slow this
TEAM WORK MAKES THIS DREAM WORK! LET'S GET STARTED: Send a $7.00 dollar
donation from your PayPal account to THE FIRST e-mail address on the list
along with a note saying "Please add me to your list." Now send the other
$7.00 donation and an e-mail to the 5th person on the list saying "Thanks.
Remove the 1st e-mail address and place your address at the bottom. This
moves the 2nd to 1st, 3rd to 2nd, 4th to 3rd, and the 5th place into 4th.
DO NOT TRY TO PLACE YOURSELF IN THE FIRST PLACE. IT WILL ONLY REACH THE
PEOPLE YOU SEND IT TO, AND THEN YOUR NAME WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE LIST!
If you do this the way it was designed, it will reach thousands by the time
your name gets to the top. REMEMBER TO SEND a $7.00 dollar donation to the
1st e-mail address and the message "PLEASE ADD ME TO YOUR LIST", and send an
email with the words "THANKS. I'VE JOINED" and the other $7.00 donation to
the 5th person. This helps the 5th person keeps track of progress of the
letter and continue to send out more emails. Here is the list:
(Make sure it's the same e-mail address that you used to open your PayPal
account. This is the way you will receive payment)
Now that you have paid the 1st person and 5th person and sent them both an
email, a note, and placed your e-mail address in the 5th place, the only
thing left to do is to mail out at least 20 copies of this letter. It is
your job as the 5th person on the list to ensure there are at least 20
"thank you I've joined" replies. The fifth person is the guardian of the
system! If there are not at least 20 replies then the fifth person will keep
sending the letter until there is.
MAKE SURE YOU SEND $7 DOLLARS TO THE FIRST PERSON TO THANK THEM FOR WHEN
THEY WERE THE GUARDIAN OF THE LETTER and $7 DOLLARS TO THE FIFTH PERSON SO
MORE EMAILS CONTINUE TO GO OUT!
You will receive gratis - thanks AND THE SAME BLESSING. When your name is on
the 1st slot, 8,000 to 15,000 people will send you 7 dollars! Keep in
mind... the most you spent is $14 DOLLARS! (Remember... what goes around
Mary Gatters, Columbus, SC:
I only have one thing to say to you... OH MY GOD! I sent out 142 copies
total before 20 replied, like the instructions said. Then I went on a short
vacation. When I got back my account had over $32,000 dollars in it already
and the money was still coming! I'm still floating on air (especially with
my new car). I thought the guardian system sounded cheesy, but now I realize
it is the formula that makes this letter really work! THANKS!
Step 1. Set up your PayPal account, if you don't already have one, and send
the top name (1st person) $7.00 dollars. DONT FORGET to include "Please add
me to your list." This is important as it keeps the program legal.
Step 2. Send the other $7.00 dollars and an e-mail stating "Thank you. I've
Joined" to the 5th name on the list.
Step 3. Remove the top name, bump the other 4 names up 1 place each. Place
your name in the bottom slot - you will receive a minimum of $100.00 or more
from your efforts.
Step 4. Keep sending the letter until you get 20 "Thank you. I've joined"
replies in your inbox.
I know that or maybe you have seen or heard of this on Oprah or even
received numerous messages about this simple program and have probably just
deleted them. I know I have! But for some unknown reason this time I decided
to give it a try. After all, it's only a $14.00 investment! Please give it
an honest effort, you will not be disappointed and will be very glad you did
when it starts to work. Remember, all you're going to be out of pocket is
about the cost of a couple of coffees with the opportunity of banking
thousands of dollars into your PayPal account!

There is also a identity theft type of PayPal scam which is bit different to the money promising chain e-mail letter. It looks like official PayPal letter but is a scam which is phishing your e-mail or user identity.
Don´t be stupid! Filling info to e-mail form is not common way to ask information in the Internet. Only by criminals not by PayPal!
