Chain Mail, From Heaven!

Well, according to this bizarre piece of mail I received today anyway. Apparently God wants me to be wealthy. And I get a snazzy piece of free jewelry to boot! As the paper below states, "It is a very unusual piece of Christian jewelry." Indeed.

I guess I should have read the whole thing to see exactly what type of silly scam this was but I didn't. Anything from a stranger promising wealth, even with the Jesus stamp of approval, is definitely some type of scam. (I learned my lesson, Ed McMahon! No more magazines!) I just thought this was entertaining and thought I'd share it with you, Internet.

Did anyone else get thier sealed prophecy in the mail today? If so, let me know when they are sending out the big checks delivered by disciples and camera crews. I want to have my hair ready for tv.

Your jewelry is way cooler than the bonus blessing that came with my version of this a couple of years ago. I got a penny as a down payment. And then, sigh, nothing. Life is full of disappointments.
Thanks for stopping by today. I'll be checking your posts...

Wow that is genius. I feel filled with the spirit as I read it. I'm going to run out and join that 58 year old church ministry and pledge every penny.

Wait... is the cross actually just a picture of a cross?? The last one I got had a prayer mat enclosed, which was of course a picture of a prayer mat. I threw mine away in defiance. I don't like it when mail tells me what to do.

It's good to here that God is worried about our finances although you would think he/she would be a bit less parsimonious with the stock tips.

I saw something in a magazine where they asked you to send the form in and check off whatever special prayer you wanted said (for wealth, etc.) and you'd get some special jewelry. I didn't read the fine print, so I don't know what the catch was - only that I knew if I needed prayers, I can do them myself, for free! LOL.

Wow Ina, I can always count on you for a strong opinion. Lol.
Ciervo- I think they will send you the actual cross- IF you send in the prayer request (and probably a check for $9.99, I imagine.) That is funny that you were sent a picture of a prayer mat. What?! Is it for your dolls or what? Lol.

No matter what your religion is I think we can all agree that this reeks of a money-making scheme.

Yeah, I suspect that I won't be getting that one. What with the neighborhood and all.
I don't know what they call these kind of shenanigans in the appalachians, but here in Utah we have a name for these Men in Black, we call them Men in Black and I will chase them down the street.

That answers a lingering questions. Now I know what Dick Cheney is doing with his time. A new career, sort of.
