Honda Offers $1000

Dear valued potential customers:

Here at Honda we have been well known for over 20 years for providing the best in reliability, comfort, and style. Over the years we have risen to be one of the top auto industries here in Japan. But that isn’t enough.

We want to be number one in the US. Now our twentieth anniversary for making cars is here!!! This is the perfect opportunity for you and us here at Honda to celebrate our 20 years of excellent service. We have been trying to think of ideas to get more people to know about our cars.

And with technology and e-mail being the wave of the future, we want to jump on this opportunity. So we have set up a rewards system to epay those who help us spread the word about Honda. Our marketing staff has designed a special program that traces this message as it travels across the US. Anyone who forwards this e-mail, will immediately have an account at their local Honda dealer opened in their name.

This account will initially be opened with a credit of $1,000 toward any new or used vehicle at their participating dealership. For each person you forward this e-mail to, the amount of $200 will be added to your account.

If the recipients of this e-mail forward it you will be rewarded an additional $100 for each person it reaches and if they also forward it your account continues to grow in $100 increments. You can log onto our website at to check the balance of your account. If things go well and everyone participates you should see your account grow quite quickly. Follow the on screen instructions to order the specific make and model of Honda you want to buy with your account. We hope that this is a rewarding experience for you and us. Our goal is to reach over 1 million computers by the year 2000.

I thank you for your time and business.
