Luck chain letter. Death-Lottery type. Love title. Car testimonial. St. Jude termination. Bennett L16. US, 1992.

With love all things are possible.  This paper has been sent to you for good luck. The original is in

New England.  It has been sent around the world nine times.  The luck has been sent to you.  You will
receive good luck within four days of receiving this letter, provided, in turn, you send it on.  This is
no joke. You will receive good luck in the mail.  Send no money.  Send copies to people who you
think need good luck.  Do not send money, as faith has no price.  Do not keep this letter.  It
must leave your hands within 96 hours.  An RAF officer received $470,000.  Joe Elliott
received $40,000 and lost it because he broke the chain.  While in the Phillippines, George Welsch
lost his wife 51 days after receiving the letter.  He failed to circulate the letter.  However, before his
death he received $7,770,000.  Pleased send twenty copies and see what happens in four days.  The
chain comes from Venezuela and was written by Saul Anthony DeGrou, a missionary from South
Africa.  Since this copy must tour the world, you must make twenty 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:  Constantine Dias received the chain in 1953.  He won the
lottery of two million dollars. Carl Daddit, an office employee, received the letter and forgot it
had to leave his hands within 96 hours.  He lost his job.  Later, after finding the letter again, he
mailed 20 copies.  A few days later, he received a better job.  Daian Fairchild received the letter
and, not believing, threw the letter away.  Nine days later he died.  In 1987 the letter was received
by a woman in California.  It was faded and barely readable.  She promised herself she would retype
the letter and send it on, but she put it aside to do later.  She was plagued by various problems,
including expensive car repairs.  The letter did not leave her hands within 96 hours.  She finally
typed the letter and she got a new car.
