This is an example of a 'Chain E-Mail', simply ignore it as all it does it waste peoples time and network resources. Treat them as you would a normal chain letter, bin it! 

It is NOT real, it is all a pile of rubbish pulled together to fool the gullible and superstitious.  I have deleted hundreds of similar e-mails and binned loads of paper based chain mails and I'm still here.



Kelly Sedey had one wish, for her boyfriend of three years, David Marsden, to propose to her.
Then one day when she was out to lunch David proposed! She accepted, but then had to leave because she had a meeting in 20 min. When she got to her office, she noticed on her computer she had
e-mail. She checked it, the usual stuff from her friends, but then she saw one that she had never gotten before. It was this letter. She simply deleted it without even reading all of it.


Later that evening, she received a phone call from the police. It was about DAVID!
He had been in an accident with an 18 wheeler. He didn't survive.

CASE 2: Take Katie Robbenson.

She received this letter and being the believer that she was, she sent it to a few of her friends but didn't have enough e-mail addresses to send out the full 10 that you must.
Three days later, Katie went to a masquerade ball.
Later that night when she left to get to her car to go home, she was killed on the spot by a hit-and-run drunk driver.


Richard S. Willis sent this letter out within 45 minutes of reading it.
Not even 4 hours later walking along the street to his new job interview with a really big company, when he ran into Cynthia Bell, his secret love for 5 years.
Cynthia came up to him and told him of her passionate crush on him that she had had on him for 2 years. Three days later, he proposed to her and they got married. Cynthia and Richard are still married with three children, happy as ever!

This is the letter:

Around the corner I have a friend,
In this great city that has no end,
Yet the days go by and weeks rush on,
And before I know it, a year is gone.
And I never see my old friends face,
For life is a swift and terrible race,
He knows I like him just as well,
As in the days when I rang his bell.
And he rang mine if, we were younger then,
And now we are busy, tired men.
Tired of playing a foolish game,
Tired of trying to make a name.
"Tomorrow" I say "I will call on Jim"
"Just to show that I'm thinking of him."
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes,
And distance between us grows and grows.
Around the corner!- yet miles away,
"Here's a telegram sir" "Jim died today."
And that's what we get and deserve in the end.
Around the corner, a vanished friend.

Remember to always say what you mean. If you love someone, tell them.

Don't be afraid to express yourself. Reach out and tell someone what they
mean to you. Because when you decide that it is the right time it might be too late.

Seize the day. Never have regrets. And most importantly, stay close to your friends and family, for they have helped make you the person that you are today.

You must send this on in 3 hours after reading the letter to 10 different people.
If you do this, you will receive unbelievably good luck in love.
The person that you are most attracted to will soon return your feelings.
If you do not, bad luck will rear it's ugly head at you.


You have read the warnings, seen the cases, and the consequences.
You MUST send this on or face dreadfully bad luck.
*NOTE* The more people that you send this to, the better luck you will have.
