Chain-Letter Racket


food for thought header 2
Members of the American clergy are being solicited to participate in the old chain-letter racket that has been declared illegal by Post Office authorities. Ministers are promised a return of $8,000 if they send $1 to the person whose name appears at the top of a list of four people. The victim then is supposed to eliminate the first name, place his own fourth on the list, and send copies of the letter to twenty friends. If he does this within twenty-four hours after receiving his letter, in twenty days he will receive 8,000 replies, each containing a dollar.

This shell game has been operating in various forms for a long time. Whoever started it should be reported to the postal authorities, and anyone who receives such a letter should file it in the waste basket where it belongs. Of all people, ministers should be least gullible about this racket and least susceptible of trying to get something for nothing.
