Luck-generating chain e-mails promise forwarders good luck, and threaten people who don't forward them with bad luck. These usually follow a standard outline, as you can see below.
Example: This e-mail can determine your fate! When Jenny Ynnej received this e-mail, she immediately forwarded it to everyone on her contact list within 5 minutes. The next day, her boyfriend proposed to her and she got a promotion at work. However, when Tom Mot received this e-mail, he stupidly deleted it. And the next day, he got run over by a car. Mary Yram sent this e-mail to only one of her friends, and the next day, she broke her leg. Send this e-mail on to everyone on your contact list so that you will have good luck. The more people you send it to, the better your life will be!
This kind of chain e-mail has ones that say that it will bring good fortune, but also ones that bring bad luck, therefore 48% of the interviewees were annoyed by them, while 32% were amused and happy with it. But surprisingly, 66% would delete it afterwards and only 8% of the interviewees would forward it
