Poor College Student needs Your Help!! :-(

Hi. I just finished my junior year in college, and now I'm
faced with a major problem. I can't afford to pay for my senior
year. I've tried everything. I can't get any more student loans,
I don't qualify for any more scholarships, and my parents are as
broke as am I. So as you can see, I've got a major problem. But
as far as I can see, there is only one solution, to go forward.
I've come along way, and there is no chance in hell that I'm going
to drop out now! I'm not a quiter, and I'm not going to give up.

But here is why I'm telling you all this. I want to ask a favor of every
one out here on the net. If each of you would just send me a one
dollar bill, I will be able to finish college and go on with my life.
I'm sure a dollar is not much to any of you, but just think how it
could change a person's life. I'd really like to encourage all of you
to help me out, I've no other place to go, no other doors to knock
on. I'm counting on all of you to help me! (PLEASE!)
If you would like to help a poor boy out, please send $1 (you can
of course send more if you want!! :-)

PS. Please don't flame me for posting this to so many newsgroups,
I really am in dire need of help, and if any of you were as desparate
as I am, you just might resort to the same thing I am. Also, please
don't tell me to get a job! I already have one and work over 25 hrs
a week, plus get in all my classes, plus find time to study! So hey,
please consider it! It would really mean a lot to me. Thank you!

NOTE: Any extra money I receive will go to a scholarship fund to help
others in the same situation. :-)

I do not mean to flame the poster of the following article. But I do not
think net newsgroup is the right place to go for this kind of thing.

For the other readers, the SAME posting have appeared at least once
to the other disjunct set of newsgroups, includeing comp.arch. So he
seems to be dissatisfactory from the last result.

"This kind of thing" is a federal crime called mail fraud.
It can put the offender in prison for quite a while.
