Perspective and Examples

Few things tug at the heartstrings quite like stories of a child in need or, worse, in jeopardy. It is in our nature to protect the young. These chains come in two flavors: sick child chains and missing child alerts.

Few things tug at the heartstrings quite like stories of a child in need or, worse, in jeopardy. It is in our nature to protect the young.

Chains in this category come in two basic, but distinct types. Sick child chain letters are almost always bogus - they frequently promise that you can help fund their medical care or help them realize a lifelong wish simply by forwarding an e-mail (which you can't). Missing child chain letters, unfortunately, are very often real, but quickly fall victim to all the shortcomings of using e-mail to broadcast information.
