I remember back in the day….when I first got email…and I’d get a message every now and then that read a little something like this:
If you send this email to X number of people, then you get (pick from the list):
Cash from Bill Gates, Gift Certificate from Applebee’s, Old Navy/Gap/Fitch gift certificates, cell phones, soda, trips, etc. It really, really works. My cousin’s diet specialist swears it’s true!
Then I got another, then another. I’d think that after so many years now that people would realize this is just a hoax. But I still get them from time to time. And every now and then a family member or friend takes the plunge into the world of cyber space and thinks “Hey, this might actually work and Bill Gates might actually send me some cold hard cash, no matter what color it is!” and I get it again. I should not let it bother me, I know.
