I agree, though I wish you had not requoted the original message in its

Our friend Nizar Ogutmen changed his email address, a sure sign that he
KNOWS this is illegal or will at least give a strong negative reaction.

reveals a student home page index, including one Nizar Ogutmen at

I suggest you tell Mr. Ogutmen at mailto:uzs6y8@ibm.rhrz.uni-Bonn.de

The problem with this scheme is it is your classical pyramid. You only
get your money if the people down the line participate. Once the chain
is broken, you stop earning money. There is no "service" in the
conventional sense. All you are doing is creating a chain letter.
Regardless of what this says about not being one. Perhaps this is legal
in the US, I don't know. Since I am living there, I do know that this is
illegal in Germany, because it *is* a pyramid. Looking at your email
address, so are **you**. I wonder what the Staatsanwalt would have to
say about it.

I don't like this crap. Most of the people in this group don't like it.
