ANNOUNCEMENT: Cyber Promotions is SELLING OFF ITS OWN MAILING
              LIST!

For the first time, you can own Cyber Promotions proprietary
list of 2.9 million email addresses.  This is the same list to
which Cyber has sent its e-Mags and exclusives.  This list has
never been sold before!  You can take advantage of Cyber
Promotions hard work since 1994.  Cyber has painstakingly
collected these email addresses from the following sources...

* Online classified advertisements
* Subscribe requests
* Autoresponder requests
* FreeResponder owners
* FreeRelay recipients
* Online business-related profiles
* Web visitors
* Internic records
* Web mall advertisers
* ... and much more!

Since many of the people in this database have been on this
exclusive list for over 6 months, they have had many
opportunities to unsubscribe.  This list only includes people
who have not requested removal.  Very few of these email
addresses are available from other sources.  You can use this
list over and over again.  You stand to make big money if you
market your product, service or opportunity to this database.

Regular price will be $2995 -- ONE WEEK SPECIAL only $995 --
(SAVE $2000)

YOU CAN BE ONE OF THE VERY FIRST PEOPLE TO BENEFIT FROM THE
BEST MONEY-MAKING EMAIL LIST EVER!

So, don't wait.  Order this list today before your competitors
get to it first!

day Airborne Express.
