Must Be Hoax Time Again

Just received an email from my uncle, first one I've gotten from him in a while, and this was in it:

"Subject: PLEEEEEEASE READ!!!! it was on the news! ASAP!!!!

This was on the 9:00 o'clock news the other night so I'm assuming it
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."

So, after reading that, I replied, and referred him HERE... Kind of reminds me of the time one of my aunts sent me an email about the "teddy bear icon" virus.

Now.... off to do some more "job applying"...
