This chain comes from Venezuela, was written by St. Aptime de Cadla, a missionary from South America.

  Since this chain must take a tour of the world, you must make twenty copies identical to this one and send it to your friends, parents or acquaintances and after a few days you will get a surprise. This is true even if you are not superstitious; take note of the following:

  Constantine Dios received the chain in 1953. He asked his secretary to make twenty copies and send them. A few days later he won the lottery of $2,000,000.

  Garlos Psandk, an office employee, received this chain. He forgot it and lost it. A few days later he lost his job. He found the chain and sent twenty copies. Nine days later he got a better job.

  Zarin Berrachille received the chain. Not believing it, he threw it away. Nine days later he died for no reason.
