An RAF officer received $70,000. Joe Elliot received $40,000 and lost it because he broke the chain. While in the Philippines Gene Welch lost his wife six days after receiving this letter and failing to circulate it. However, before her death he received $7,755,000.
The chain comes from Venezuela and was written by Saul Anthony De
Coup, a missionary from South Africa. Since the copy must make a tour of
the world, you must make 20 copies and send them to your friends and associates.
After a few days you will get a surprise. This is true even if you are
not superstitious. Constantine Dias received the chain in 1953 and asked
his secretary to send out 20 copies. A few days later he won a lottery
of two million dollars. Please don't ignore this letter. "It works!"
