On an average I get about 250 mails from friends and acquaintances and another 70 n odd promotional. How much ever I resist or intimate or put them in spam n flag them this is one thing that never dies. Hope some day something will be found to detect them ofcourse free of cost (I don hav so much money).
Earlier it was a season for the mails like if u fwd microsoft / yahoo or xyz will pay u so much and then it went philanthrophy if you fwd som chronic patient in needwould be paid for his medical aid. Then came the devotional touch. Even earlier there was this printed pamphlet and if u ever ever get one in your hand then thats it. It says u hav 2 publish 100 or so and distribute them otherwise something bad will happen. Following that was these emails the next awatar version next. Scary and cursing.
So Iam in a fix with such mails as the one below. Who knows which is genuine. So I thought I would simply paste it here rather than trouble some of my friends with hystierical fwds. May be its time…
