chain letter that makes you money?

Hello, has anyone ever done this before?

Today I recieved a chain letter in the mail where you send 6 people a $1.00 and send out 200 copies of the same letter to other people with you name included as one of the six people to recieve WAY more money in return? DOes this really work and is worth putting the money out to actually see if it does?

    Not only is it illegal, no, it does not work to any significant extent.

    Note that it is similar, logically, to pyramid marketing schemes, with their 'up line' and 'down line' connections. The generic is the Ponzi scheme, which is described in Google.

    Note also the similarity to derivatives on Wall Street, which look like just a more sophisticated and complex variant of the same notion.
