Gullible People

Log in to my Friendster account to see this from one of my "friend" in my list (can't really remember how I know such a person:

This was on the 9:00 o'clock news the other night and this works THIS TOOK TWO PAGES OF THE TUES! DAY USA TODAY - IT IS FOR REAL.PLEEEEEEASE READ!!!! it was on the news!
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 ago.
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 weeks 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.
Charles S Bailey General Manager Field Operations
Ext. 1085 or or RNX

I thought this was a scam myself, But two weeks after receiving this e-mail and forwarding it on. Microsoft contacted me for my address and within days, I receive 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

You mean you guys actually believe this? I'd received enough of these spam mails in my mailbox! Hey, how on earth is Microsoft gonna pay you? Are they gonna check your email details when some actually faked ALL details including sex? Or are they going to check IP address? Oh please. Some of our internet (like mine) is under parent's name. So how are they going to find the right person to send the cheque to? And if I'm Microsoft, WHY SHOULD I GIVE YOU MONEY WHEN YOU ARE CURSING ME EVERYTIME THE COMPUTER HANGS? And many are NOT using Intel anymore. So WHY SHOULD HE PAY YOU!?

This is damn dumb lor. Please think with your brains. If you ain't got one, don't spam me and get me all agitated. Sheesh. Or if you've nothing to forward to me, DON'T DO ME ANY FAVOURS..JUST DON'T EMAIL ME.
