"Microsoft Paying you - Not Fake" - A funny Rumor

Discussion in 'Bing' started by ronakbhagdev, Jan 30, 2009.

    Friends, Today one of my friend forwarded a mail about that Microsoft is paying for sending and forwarding this mail. Here I have pasted forwarded Mail. Though I don't think this is the fact, but here is am sharing.

    Now read It and laugh, laugh and laugh :D

    Mail Subject: Microsoft Paying you - Not Fake

    Mail Body
    Dear Friends,

    Please do not take this for a junk letter. Bill Gates is 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 week! s, Microsoft will contact you for your address and then send you a cheque.

    I hate those scams. The worst thing is that your friends put your email on it and BAM, you are part of their email spam network and get annoying emails all day long!

    I forwarded to 10 friends and instead of paying me they asked me to donate $2450 in Microsoft fund and also mentioned -

    Dear Microsoft User,

    After paying too much money we are now out of money and now we really need your help in launching Windows 7.

    Also forward this mail to your friends and family.

    Thanks,
    S---- B-----,
    Microsoft INC.



    Not really, It's a joke. :rolleyes:

    @smiler51
    Rightly said. I do agree.

    I am not sure which understanding of the expression predates the other but the idea that it's good & true...at the same time, is interesting....or misleading to say the least!!:p
