The "4 Reports" scheme in full text

Here is a transcription of the slickest "4 Reports" scheme I have received
so far.  The one I received, unlike most, was nicely DTP typeset and
laser printed.  It almost looked like a real business proposal,
excepting of course the actual meat of the "offer".  All names and
addresses in the "list" have been pseudonymized - they are fictitious
and sending money to them will result in a "no such address" return to
you. Remember that this is a fraudulent pyramid scam!  Under no
circumstances should you attempt to set this in motion or believe that
you can make any money off it!

Just remember, THIS FILE IS A LIE.

                   ...BELIEVE IT AND IT'S YOURS...


The next five minutes will change your life... if you allow it to happen!

This is a very exciting business opportunity.  It is NOT A CHAIN LETTER, it
is NOT A PYRAMID SCHEME, it is legal, easy and extremely profitable.
Are you thinking "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is"?
Please read all of this material before making up your mind.  I had to
read it three times before I was convinced!

This incredible opportunity is legal because it involves the sale of
product through multi-level marketing (MLM).  MLM is quite legitimate!
It is being taught in Harvard Business School, both Stanford Research
and the Wall Street Journal have stated that between 50% and 60% of all
goods and services will be sold by Multi-level methods in the 1990's.
This is a MULTI-BILLION dollar industry!  And of the over 500,000
millionaires in the U.S. and Canada, 20% made their fortunes in the last
7 years in MLM, also the statistics show that MLM makes 45 millionaires
per day.


If you have some spare time and can afford to purchase four reports at
just $5 per report, then you too can become a report distributor!  When
you purchase these reports you also receive the right to sell them -
just photocopy them (for pennies per page) and sell them like I'm doing.
The great mark-up and the "magic" of MLM (explained later)will ensure an
income beyond your beliefs!  The investment tiny - the return...
TREMENDOUS!  Returns are much better than any lottery or bingo.

If you note the testimonials contained in the following pages, you will
see returns of $190 to $250 for each packet mailed out.  What you are
reading is called a sales packet.  Based on these averages, if you
receive a 5% response in the distribution of just 200 packets, your
expected return should be between $36,000 and $56,000.  Your return is
large because of the "magic" of MLM.  There is NO limit to the number of
packets you can mail out.  Mail more packets... Make more money!  It's
that simple.  Mailing 1,000 packets could return about $200,000; ten
thousand packets could return about $2,000,000.

You should make your own judgement, form your own opinions.  Decide if
you think this business will work for you!  If you have any doubts or
are a skeptic like I was, put this letter away and read it again in a
few days.  The following pages explain in detail how the system works.
Read them carefully.  Learn about the "magic of MLM".  Make your own
decision and take action!

You can start this business by distributing this offer randomly - to
people at the shopping entre, unemployment office line-ups, sporting
events, etc: or deliver it door to door, especially in apartment
buildings!  However, once you have made your first $1000 (which won't
take long), you will be able to afford to purchase address labels from a
mailing list company which has already identified people who will
understand this offer.  By using a mailing list, your return rate (the
number of people who act on your offer) will increase dramatically.
Then your job becomes easier and much more profitable!

I cannot emphasize enough the importance of using a mailing list to
accelerate YOUR success.  There are hundreds of sources of mailing lists
across the country, start by looking in the yellow pages.  Once you have
chosen a company make sure they understand your target market.


Order your four reports today.  Then follow the attached instructions
for changing the names on page 3 of this sales packet and reproduce the
corrected page and the rest of this packet along with your own cover
letter similar to this one (or just photocopy mine).  This now becomes
your "master" sales packet.  Make at least 500 photocopies and start
distributing them to people who want to buy your reports and make a lot
of money in their spare time.  THIS IS THE OPPORTUNITY YOU'VE DREAMED OF
YOUR ENTIRE LIFE!  Remember... The only limitation is the number of
packets you distribute!

                                                Good luck to all of us!


By the time you have read the enclosed information, looked over the plan
and purchased your 4 reports, you should have concluded that such a
plan, and one that is legal, could not have been created by an amateur.

Let me tell you about myself... I began as an independent small
businessman in 1969.  Using good business practices, I developed a
profitable business for 10 years.  Then in 1979 my business began
falling off.  I was doing the same things that had been previously
successful but it just wasn't working anymore.  The economy had gone
crazy!  Inflation and recession had replaced the period of economic
growth we had been experiencing since 1945.

I don't have to tell you what happened to the unemployment rate...
Because many of you know by first hand experience that there were more
small and corporate businesses failing and going into bankruptcy than
ever before.  The prospects for employment were vanishing.


Those who knew what they were doing and invested wisely moved up.  Like
most of us, those who didn't have much to save or invest, were moving
down into the ranks of the poor.  As the saying goes, the rich get
richer and the poor get poorer.  Traditional ways of "making money" will
never allow you to move up or "GET RICH".  Inflation will see to that!

With practically no risk and just a little bit of effort you can have
more money in a few months than you have ever dreamed of.  I should
point out that I will not see a penny of your money or anyone else's who
participates in this plan.  This one is for you!

I've made over 4 million dollars and retired from the plan after having
sent out over 16,000 letter packets to sell my reports.  I have moved to
the rich side of the tracks.  Will you be able to say the same in a
couple of months?  If you only send out one tenth as many packets as I
did... You too can be a rich person.  PLEASE FOLLOW THE PLAN EXACTLY AS
IT IS NOW.  Someone in turn may send out thousands of packets and YOUR
name will be on every single one of them!  Remember, though, the more
you send out, the more potential customers you will reach!  I've given
you the ideas, the information, materials and opportunity to become
financially independent.  IT'S UP TO YOU NOW!

                                                        Edward L. Green



1.  Order all four reports numbered 1 to 4 on the following page (page
3).  Do this by ordering one report from each of the four names listed
on the right hand side.  For each report, send $5.00 in CASH AND A SELF
SPECIFIC REPORT and advise which report you are ordering from that
person, (in order to protect from postal theft please put the five
dollar bill inside your S.A.S.E. return envelope).  You will need all
four reports because you will be reprinting them to sell to your
customers.  Please do not alter the names or their sequence other than
instructed in this sales packet.

2.  Replace the name and address under REPORT ONE with yours, moving the
one that was there down to REPORT TWO.  Drop the name under REPORT TWO
to REPORT THREE, moving that name to REPORT FOUR.  The name and address
that was under report four is dropped off the list.  Either retype the
following page, making the necessary changes, or simply type the names
and addresses themselves on labels and place them directly over the old
ones.  When doing these changes PLEASE make certain that you copy
everyone's name and address accurately!

3.  Having made the necessary changes on the name list, take this page
and the others you've received to your "Quick Copy" shop and have as
many copies of each as you can initially afford to print.  There is no
need to over extend yourself as you can always print more later when the
money starts coming in.  Of course you may want to consider that there
are very good discounts for large printing or photocopying jobs.

4.  Send a copy of the entire package (it is most important) to everyone
whose name and address you can get a hold of.  Then, as your finances
allow, mail to anyone and everyone!  The best plan of all is to purchase
a list of "Hot Names" from a mailing list company.  This will give you
access to the best name lists in North America.  You will find that a
good name list will earn you more money than you could have ever
imagined.  It's a great investment.

5.  When the orders start coming in, always provide a same day service

                        THE "MAGIC" OF

Let's say you decide to start small just to see how it goes, and we'll
assume you and all those involvedonly send out 200 sales packets each.
Let's also assume that each mailing receives a 5% response.  (By using a
good mailing list the response would be much better.  Remember also that
many people will be sending out thousands of packets instead of just
200!)  With a 5% return on your mailing, that's 10 people who
participate by sending 200 each.  That's a total of 2,000 sales packets
from your original mailing!  The 5% on 2,000 is 100.  When the 100 send
out their 200 or 20,000 in total and the response will generate 200,000
and the 5% response will be an incredible 10,000 five dollar bills.
Your total income in this example situation will be
$50+$500+$5,000+$50,000 = $55,550 in total.  All of this from your
original 200 sales packets that YOU sent out.  Remember, friends, this
is assuming that 95 out of every 100 people you mail to do absolutely
nothing with this opportunity and trash this offer.  Dare to think for a
moment what would happen if everyone sent out 1,000 sales packets
instead of just 200!  Believe me, many people will do just that and


This is my third time to participate in this plan.  The first time
about four months ago, I was full of doubts.  Before it was over, I had
received 3,792 orders for a cash income of $18,960.  About six weeks
ago my wife and I both worked sending out 1000 packets.  From that
mailing we have already received over $87,000.  The next mailing will be
15,000 names.  We have quit our jobs and quite soon will be buying a
home on the beach and live off the interest from our money.  The only
way on earth that this plan will work for you is if you do it!  For your
sake and your family's don't pass up this golden opportunity.  Remember,
when you order your four reports, send cash!  Checks have to clear the
bank and create too many delays.  Good luck and happy spending!

Before you throw out this packet in the waste basket, as I almost did,
take a little time to read it, reread it, and really think about it.
Get a pencil and figure out what could happen if YOU participate.
Figure out the worst possible reponse, and no matter how you calculate
it, you'll make a bundle.  About all that could go wrong would be if you
forgot to put postage stamps on the packets.  (I even checked the Post
Office to verify that this plan was legal).  It definitely is (refer to
Title 18, Section 1302 and 1341 of the postal and lottery code).  I just
want to pass along my best wishes and encouragement to you.  Any doubts
you have will vanish when your first orders come in.  It works!

This is the only realistic moneymaking offer I've ever received.  I
participated because this plan truly makes sense.  I only sent out 200
packets, but was surprised when the $5 bills started filling my mail
box!  By the time it tapered off, I had received over 8,000 orders with
over $40,000 in cash!  Dozens of people have sent warm personal notes
too, sharing their good fortune.  It's been wonderful!

Not being the gambling type, it took several weeks to make up my mind to
participate in this plan.  But, conservative that I am, I decided that
the initial investment was so little that there was just no way that I
wouldn't get enough orders to at least get my money back.  Boy was I
surprised when I found that my medium-sized post office box was crammed
with orders.  After that it got so overloaded that I had to start
picking up my mail at the window.  I'll make more money this year than
in any 10 years of my life before.  I'm now working with a good list
broker in Los Angeles and plan on sending out 10,000 packets this
summer.  The nice thing about this deal is that it doesn't matter where
people live.  Any valid name and address is a good prospect.  There
simply isn't a better investment with a faster return anywhere!

                             A PERSONAL MESSAGE

We looked at different plans.. This one's a WINNER!

The $20.00 each of us invested is about the cost of a Family snack at
the local fast food joint.

Do you have any idea what 9,623 five dollar bills look like piled on
your kitchen table?

We are on our way & we want YOU in with us.

I am now enjoying an early, secure retirement on the firtune that I made
by sending out packets just like this one.  In three or four weeks, you
too will be earning easy money!  Follow the simple steps outlined in
this information.  They are the key to financial freedom and success.
To be financially independent is to be free.  Free to make decisions
like you never have before.  Go into business, get into investments,
retire or take a vacation.  No longer will the lack of money hold you
back.  However, very few people will reach financial independence
because, when opportunity knocks, they choose to ignore it.  It's so
much easier to say "NO" than to say "YES" and this is now the question
that you must answer,  Will you ignore this amazing opportunity... or
will you take advantage of it?  If you don't think that this is a
spectacular opportunity then take time to reread this material.  You
have indeed missed something.  If you have any questions please feel
free to write the sender of this information.  You'll get a prompt and
very informative reply.

My method is simple.  I sell thousands of people a product for $5.00
that costs me pennies to produce and mail.  Everyone in the program
makes money for everyone else in the program.  If anyone makes money,
everyone makes money!  I should point out that this program is
completely legal!  At times you've probably received chain letters
asking you to send money but get nothing in return.  No product
whatsoever!  Not only are chain letters illegal, but the risk of someone
breaking the chain makes them quite unattractive.  This plan has the
effect and appeal of a chain letter, but it is legal since you are
offering a legitimate product to your people.  After they purchase the
product from you, they simply produce more and resell the product.  It's
simply free enterprise.  As you have learned from the enclosed
information, the product in this plan is a series of four financial and
business reports.  The information contained in these reports will help
you in making your participation in this plan more rewarding, and will
be useful to you in other business decisions you make in the years
ahead.  You are also buying the rights to reprint all of the reports,
which will be ordered from you by those to whom you choose to mail this
packet.  The reports you'll be buying can easily be reproduced at your
local printer or copy centre for a cost of approximately 4 cents per
page in small quantities or 1,000 or more.  A little work at home and a
very small financial investment will give you a tremendous return.  All
that most of us need in life to be successful is just one good break -
this is yours!  Don't let this chance pass you by!  Good Luck with this
plan and God Bless You!

                                                    Edward L. Green

                                YOUR GUARANTEE

The checkpoint which GUARANTEES your goal is simple this: you must
receive 15 to 20 orders for REPORT ONE!!  This is a must!!! If you don't
within three weeks, send out more sales packets until you do.  Then a
couple of weeks later you should receive 100 orders for REPORT TWO.  If
you don't, send out more letters until you do.  Once you have received
100 or more orders for REPORT TWO, you can sit down and relax because
you are going to make at least $55,000.  Also remember, every time your
name is moved down on the list, you are in front of a different report
so that you can keep track of your progress by knowing which report
people are ordering from you!  "IT'S THAT SIMPLE & THAT EASY."
