Ever since I had an email address, I have been getting the typical spam where they promise to give me the all the riches in the world given to me from the son from an assassinated army general in Nigeria, well you get the idea. Anyway, when my wife showed me a pyramid letter she got from her group of friends, I was very skeptical. After reading it, I realised that it is a pyramid scheme that could work.
The idea is to get the kids reading books. If you follow the idea correctly, you should be receive about 36 books in a few weeks time.
This is how it works.
- The letter that my son got has two names at the top of it, the name of the child whom gave the letter to my son and the name of the child whom gave the letter to my son's friend.
- A blank letter came with the one my son received.
- On the blank letter, my wife puts the name of my son and his friend.
- my wife also puts down on the list the names of six of my son's friends.
- We select a book to post my son's friend's friend.
- We also post the six letters to the each of my son's friends.
- Each of the my son's friends that receive the letter will repeat the process.
- In about two weeks time, my son should receive 36 books.
- My son receives a letter from his friend, Jack.
- On top of the letter is Jack's name and Alan, Jack's friend.
- With the blank letter, my wife would put my son's name and Jack's name on it.
- Also on the blank letter, she puts down my son's six other friend.
- My wfie posts a book off to Alan.
- My wife also post six letters, one to each of my son's friend.
By the way, we have some blank letters that we have scanned. So if you want to start this off, we can email you a copy of the blank letter.
Let me know if you think if there are any holes in this idea.
