    Got this e-mail from an area track coach today. I've seen it circulating before and just deleted it.

    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

    To all of my friends, I do not usually forward messages, But this is from my friend Pearlas 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?

    SORRY EVERYBODY.. JUST HAD TO TAKE THE CHANCE!!! 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 PepsiCo against General Electric not too long a go.

    Dear Friends: Please do not take this for a junk letter.

    Bill Gates sharing his fortune.. If you ignore this, You will repent later .

    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, Microsoft can and will track it (If you are a Microsoft Windows user) For a two week 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 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.. 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 In Full'.

    Bernie Madoff swears this e-mail is true.

    Seriously, this thing has been around since the earliest days of the Internet. Why are people still forwarding it!? Can't we revoke the ability to use the Internet for anyone dumb enough to believe this crap?

    I had a guy at work pitch me his "business" the other night. Basically it was just a pyramid scheme, I can't believe people still get involved with them.
