: Hello everybody,

: Check this out.

: This company was started by the founder of DiscoveryZone and was featured in yesterday's Cnet News, ComputerWorld, Detroit Free Press, etc. ( He figured that people who surf the internet and see thousands of ads on various websites, should get paid for it. He developed this idea into a business model, plan, and obtained VC financing. Yesterday, on March 30th 1999, at 12:01am - the site was launched, and the company - "" - was started. The idea is now reality... you can get paid for browsing on the internet. This is similar to an ISP I use called Net Zero, which offers free web access if you are willing to have a toolbar on your sreen that displays ads.

: This company is charging advertisers to place ads on a small tool bar. Then, a portion of the money is paid to you for viewing these ads and referring people to do the same.

: members download a small window (about the size of the task bar at the bottom of the Win 95/98 screen). The window can be minimized with a single click to eliminate it from the screen
: at any time. You do not have to buy or really do anything except keep the bar somewhere on your desktop while browsing the net. Obviously, it is still a bit annoying,

: BUT...

: There truly is no catch. The money receives comes from the advertisers, and a portion of this gets transferred to you.

: You receive a paycheck based on your time online (paid for time up to 40 hours per month resulting in a check of $20/month). In addition
: you can refer people to sign up with and receive "referral fees" - up to $4 per month for direct referrals, and up to $2 per month for EACH person signed up by people "under you", 4 more levels deep. There is a "calculator" on the web page:


: so you can calculate the possibilities. Thus, you become a web-site marketer and advertisers pay you for it! You help people to sign up once (no charge, nothing!), and you get the fees monthly as long as you and they keep spending time browsing the net!

: Here is what it translates into in dollars. Here is an example let's assume that on average the people you sign up will be online 20 hours per month. Using 5 cent per hour referral rate, you should
: average conservatively $1 per month per referral. The simple math if you get 5 people and in turn they get 5 and so on for the five levels results in 3,905 people ($3,905 a month). If you sign up 10 and rest do 5 it would be $7,810 a month, 20 is $15,620. Think of all the time you spend online at work and home. The only necessity is that the ad-bar remain somewhere on screen.

: Cleary, the more people you sign up in the next several days the more likely you are to do well.

: As cliched as it is, I am sure that it sounds "too good to be true". Well, I know a number of you spend many hours checking out the strategy and the economics of the business, and it checks out (read the latest Forbes magazine - the Internet cover story insists that people must get paid to see the ads, and "it's the matter of months before it becomes available". They were wrong, it is coming earlier).

: Timing is critical - if millions of people sign up quickly, then the
: viewing software will be distributed "first come first serve", to be able to deliver the required payments. Thus, being one of the first people is quite beneficial.

: You can get now get your ID# and send out emails to
: your friends to do the same. To get your ID#, you must use this link:


: My ID# is the AMA-780 at the end of the link. If you are asked to enter the referral # again, just use that number so I will get credit for this referral. (My referral does not take anything from what you make, just pays extra.)

: Since I am letting you know early you do have an advantage over most people. You are currently "Third level of distribution", as above you is just me and the small "ground zero" team of which Victor is part
: due to relationship with the company's founders.

: Those still skeptical - just go to the site; it is for real, and a really a good opportunity.

: Enough said. Please try to send a return email to me at [email protected] confirming that you received this letter, and your ID#. Yes, it all sounds just crazy, but hopefully you have enough craziness in you to try this, afterall, you have nothing to lose.

: Good luck,

: David
