Renda Extra

DINHEIRO HONESTO E RÁPIDO
Pouco tempo atrás, devido minhas condições financeiras precárias, recorri a internet procurando uma solução e uma maneira de ganhar dinheiro de maneira rápida e honesta, confesso que não pus fé em inúmeras oportunidades que me foram apresentadas, mais uma certa vez, digitei no espaço de pesquisa do Google DINHEIRO FÁCIL E HONESTO. Uma relação de oportunidades apareceu na tela e uma que me chamou atenção que dizia o seguinte, GANHE DINHEIRO FÁCIL E RÁPIDO INVESTINDO APENAS 12,00, li a mensagem e percebi que não se tratava de um golpe e ainda não tinha como dar errado vou mostrar o porque:
POR FAVOR LEIA ATÉ O FIM ISSO PODERÁ TE TRAZER NOVOS RUMOS EM SUA CONDIÇÃO FINANCEIRA
O sistema funciona da seguinte maneira: no final dessa mensagem você vai encontrar uma relação com 6 nomes de pessoas contendo o endereço e/ou o numero da conta bancária, então você deve proceder da seguinte maneira:
1º passo: em relação as pessoas que tiverem indicado o endereço, envie uma carta com uma nota de R$ 2,00 com o cuidado de enrolar a nota em uma folha de papel branca para que a mesma não fique aparecendo através do envelope, em relação as pessoas que tiverem indicado o número da conta bancária, deposite para cada um o valor de 2,00, como são seis pessoas seu investimento será de 12,00 ou no máximo 15,00 levando em conta as despesas do correio.
2º passo: faça em um editor de texto tipo o Word, uma mensagem mais ou menos como essa, você pode até copiar essa que eu enviei e modificar algumas coisas a seu gosto, na mensagem que eu recebi, o emissor disse que chegou a ganhar uns 10.000 reais, eu na verdade estou iniciando agora mais pretendo daqui a alguns dias modificar esta mensagem indicando os valores que consegui. O importante é que no final de sua mensagem, você coloque a mesma relação de pessoas que estão indicadas no final desta, com uma atenção especial. Você terá que eliminar a primeira pessoa da lista da seguinte maneira: a segunda pessoa passa a ser a primeira, a terceira passa a ser a segunda, a quarta passa a ser a terceira, a quinta passa a ser a quarta, a sexta passa a ser a quinta, e por fim na sexta posição você põe o seu nome incluindo o numero da conta bancária e/ou seu endereço para receber as correspondências, caso não tenha conta ponha somente o endereço, foi assim que eu fiz então sou nesta lista a ultima pessoa.
3º passo: poste seu artigo modificado pela internet para pelo menos 200 fóruns ou newsgroups, quanto mais você divulgar mais dinheiro tende a ganhar, imagine pessoas depositando diariamente em sua conta 2,00, ou você recebendo cartas diariamente contendo notas de 2,00, divulgue em Orkuts, e-mails, sites de anúncios, para você ter um resultado satisfatório, terá que enviar no mínimo 200 mensagens em fóruns ou newsgroups ou qualquer outro meio, use um título que fique visível, tipo DINHEIRO FÁCIL ou INVISTA 12,00 E GANHE EM MÉDIA 10.000, você pode criar seu título o importante é que destaque o anuncio.
ATENÇAO: este sistema funciona a base da HONESTIDADE, pois realmente depositando os 2,00 para cada um da lista, estará fazendo parte do sistema da maneira correta, pois para realmente funcionar é preciso que pessoas HONESTAS façam parte, pois seu nome e sua conta estando sendo divulgados, certamente haverão pessoas que terão a mesma HONESTIDADE que você bem assim como eu.
DICAS PARA DIVULGAÇÃO: Antes deverá salvar o texto em sue computador, depois use a internet, procure vários newsgroups, fóruns on-lines, cadernos de mensagens, locais de conversa, discussões, entre nestes newsgroups e poste uma mensagem nova em cada MURAL, ÁREA ou algo similar, selecione a mensagem, copie e cole no espaço a ser preenchido, no espaço assunto ou título, coloque algo que chame a atenção, tipo, DINHEIRO RÁPIDO ou DINHEIRO FÁCIL , você pode usar a criatividade e criar.
Para dar mais credibilidade, eu preferi colocar meu endereço e conta bem como meus telefones e email, possibilitando ainda mais o intercâmbio com todos os que fazem parte do sistema.
LEMBRE-SE QUANTO MAIS VOCÊ DIVULGAR, MAIS DINHEIRO PODERÁ GANHAR.
AI VAI A RELAÇÃO DAS PESSOAS PARA QUEM VOCÊ VAI DEPOSITAR OU ENVIAR O DINHEIRO:
01- W.M.P. BANCO BRADESCO AGÊNCIA 1448-6 POUPANÇA 515806-0 [email protected]
02- N.Naire BANCO BRASIL AGÊNCIA 3315-4 CC: 19533-2 [email protected]

I asked this question maybe a week ago on another thread but no one answered. Does anyone know if the old north tower had a hatch/door on its roof? I'm sure maintenance workers had to get on the roof somehow.

Yes. There were two staircases that took you up to the roof from the 110th floor.

This is the South Tower, but if you look at the east and west faces of the building you can see the staircases (encased in concrete). The North Tower looked nearly the same, except its roof was not open to the public.

Well I'm pretty sure it wasn't on anyone's list during the past decade after the Twins were gone. There was nothing special about the LM skyline whatsoever when it had a huge gap in it.

Well there was nothing wrong with the skyline itself, it was what was missing that was the major insult to it. Now that, that is being fixed, it'll have its rightful place, back where it belongs.

Yes it's looking good, though I really do wish it was designed to be 2001 feet tall. As a remembrance to the year the World Trade Towers were taken from us.

I don't think we need the building to be a certain height for us to remember that day...

Agreed. I am pretty sure the building was completely designed without a specific pinnacle height in mind. It was only after they designed the tower to look as good as it could look, that they decided to change the pinnacle from 1765 to 1776. This is not accurate but it is just my guess. Basically, the building wasn't designed around a specific pinnacle height.

I didn't know this about the south tower. I know we are straying a bit from topic, but I wonder how many people, if any, met their fate up there while hoping for a helicopter rescue. Are those the top of the stairways that led all the way to ground level?

I was bored so I played around with Google Earth to see the future view of 1 and 2 WTC from the location of possibly the best pizza ever, in Brooklyn

I think there are more buildings between your pizzeria and the WTC.

Very quick and off topic question. What was the more popular viewing spot for tourists at the time - twin towers or ESB?

NY skyline is huge but somewhat dated. Very 30's-esque.

I think Hong Kong, Shanghai and perhaps chongqing in another 10 years are going to destroy it.

China skyline is best skyline. :P
