      Subject: FREE M & M's

      Have some fun-this is not a hoax.

      Hi. My name is Jeffrey Newieb. I am a marketing analyst for M&M's chocolate candies based in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
      As the year 2000 approaches, we want to be the candy of the Millennium - As you may already know, the roman numeral for Y2 is MM. We are asking you to pass on this e-mail to 5 friends. Our tracking device is calculating how many e-mails you send out. Everytime it reaches 2000
      people, you will receive a free case (100 individual 55 gram packs)of delicious M & M candies. That means the more people this reaches, the more candy you're going to get. Mmmmmm.. yummy M & Ms the year 2000!! Remember, nothing but no M & M's will come your way if you do not share this with at least 5 people.
Please ignore any messages regarding this supposed "scam" and do not pass on any messages regarding it. Passing on messages about this hoax serves only to further propagate it.
