Chain Letters, or Chain Mail, is a movement where a person sends a message to one person, while at the end of the message declaring that the reader must send the letter to however many participants to avoid a negative outcome or achieve a positive one.


Though it is hard to pin, the earliest recorded instance was in 1935, when the “Send-a-Dime” chain letter started circulating.
