Chain mail ususally tells you to passs it on, or something bad will happen to you.
Some people are really gullable and are usually idiots therefore they believe it so they pass it on.
Others are wise to the bullshit and ignore them.
They are really annoying, I usually get like 57866476756 emails per day and like 3 are actual emails.
"Send this to 500000000000 people in the next 1.123 seconds or the ghost of your long lost uncle will rape your dog!"
Send This To 50People In the next 10minutes and your crush will kiss you but.. you must press ALT+f4 And say your name 10times say your moms name 10times and on friday your crush will kiss you!
Chainmail: If you do not forward this to 10 people, Carmen will chop off your head.
John: OH SHIT I GOTTA SEND THIS OUT
