MAKE.MONEY.FAST and Other Internet Hoaxes

The Internet reaches millions of people all over the world, a huge market for people who want to make money, spread rumors, and simply be mischievous. Here’s your introduction to — and warning about — three of the most widely-known Internet hoaxes which never seem to die out.

“Hi, my name is Dave Rhodes . . . “

E-mail is the perfect way to send out chain letters, isn’t it? A few keystrokes will send ten of your closest friends this most famous of Internet scams: the MAKE.MONEY.FAST chain letter. Send it to your close friends, though, and you may end up with some very close enemies, instead!

Dave Rhodes assures you that this scam worked for him and was perfectly legal — he made over $400,000 after sending out a few copies of the letter. He was destitute, and had been driven to this desperate solution after being hounded by bill collectors. (Somehow he could still afford his computer, modem, and e-mail account. Go figure.) And as the years have passed, other people have tacked their names and success stories onto the letter, making the document a monster of testimonials of financial empowerment and pleas that the chain not be broken. http://www.moneyfasthoax.com
