1953. He asked his secretary to make twenty copies, and send
them out. A few days later he won the lottery of 2,000,000.00.
Carlos Daddis, an office employee, received the letter and
forgot that it had to leave his hands within 96 hours. He lost
his job. Later after finding the letter again, he mailed twenty
copies, a few days later he got a better job. Blaine Fairchild
received the letter and not believing, he threw the letter
away. Nine days later he died. In 1982 the letter was received
by a woman in California. It was very faded and barely
readable. She promised herself that she would retype the
letter and send it on, but she set it aside to do later. She was
plagued with various problems, including expensive car
repairs. The letter did not leave her hands within 96 hours.
She finally typed the letter as promised and got a brand new
