This chain letter has been spread across the internet. Of course, it
is not true and Microsoft and AOL are not participating.

The text of the chain letter is as follows:

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

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 cheque.
