The chain comes from Venezuela and was written by Sal Manthony Degroug, a missionary from South America. Since the copy must tour the world you must make 20 copies and send them to friends and associates. After a few days, you will get a surprise. This is true. Even if you are not superstitious, do note the following: Constantino Dias received the chain in 1963. He asked his secretary to make 20 copies and send them out. A few days later, he won the lottery of 62,000,000. Carlo Boddu, an office employee, received the letter and forgot it had to leave his hands within 96 hours. He lost his job. Delan Fairchild received the chain and not believing threw it away. Nine days later he died. In 1987, the letter was received by a young woman in California. It was faded and barely readable. She promised herself that she would retype the letter and send it out, but she put it aside. She was plagued with various problems. The letter did not leave her hands within 96 hours. She finally typed the letter as promised and got a new car.
Remember SEND NO MONEY, but DO NOT IGNORE, this letter.
