    Anyone ever receive actual email-like chain letters in the mail??
    Although it's pretty funny, at the same time, I wonder if some one is selling my mailing address information...


    I received a 5 page letter that looks like the type you would receive by email...


    Here's an excerpt from one of the pages:
    ---------------------
    Please send $1.00 to each of the following people:
    1. Name
    2. Name
    3. Name
    4. Name
    5. Name
    6. Name

    Make sure to include a note asking "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILIING LIST"

    I'm talking about receiving this at your home address and not your email....

    Yes, by proxy.

    My friend in Florida when I was a kid received one of these. That was back in 1990 or so. We actuallyrecopied it and sent it out to random addresses off the phone book. Not one penny made. But that instilled in me a little bit of "black hat" mentality.

    The rest is history. :)

    Yes I've received many. Typical worthless old fashioned pyramid scheme. Don't waist your money or your time IMHO.
