$$$ Money-generating chain e-mails promise recipients who forward the e-mails money or other riches.
$$$ Example: Hi! Here's a wonderfully easy way for you to collect money! Just put your name and contact information on the list below, and then send US$100 to the person at the top of the list. After sending the money, you can delete the person's name and forward the e-mail to everyone on your contact list, so that you will have a bigger chance of getting more than $100 back!
