Have you fallen prey to the chain-letters scheme?

Have you fallen prey to the chain-letters scheme?

Months of 31 days that start with a Friday witness 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays. For example, this July would have these 5 stuffs..  Last October in 2010 had the 5 Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.  March 2013 and July 2016 will have the same “phenomena”.

What is shameful is that con artists want you to believe that this event happens every 850 years! Nepalnews called this phenomena the “money bags”.  For example, you have to disseminate this ridiculous misinformation in order to receive money within the next four days. Nepalnews is demanding from you to sent chain-letters so that providence will be on your side and generate sizable profit, in cash, obviously.

To add stupidity to ridiculous messages, the site says that if you add your age to the number representing the last two digit of the date of your birth, you will discover that it adds up to 111!  Sure, next year, if you do the same math you’ll discover that the number is 112.  All you do is subtract 1900 if you were born between 1900 and 1999. But 112 is not as striking as 111, for example 1/11, 11/1…

These con artists want to convince the elderly, the most vulnerable section of population, and the adolescents, the most naive category, to join the bandwagon of “money go get it”.

Note: Read this piece of news in the French weekly magazine Corrier International.
