They came rarely but promised cash, the chain letters, mostly when I was between 10 and 15 years old. I don’t remember the instructions clearly. Maybe I had to pass the letter on to 10 people. Just a Ponzi scheme. I didn’t have a lot of friends in middle school, so I might have run out of friends to target for passing the letters along. I can’t remember anyone ever receiving what was promised, nor can I recall anything bad happening specifically around the times the letters came. Not much different today, except you can forward a chain email to the entire world.

I have recently retired from a marketing and technical writing and editing career and am thoroughly enjoying writing for myself and others.
