SCENT FRAUD IN ENDLESS
CHAIN OF HELP LETTERS
Minneapolis, Minn., Jan. 6. A
copy of endless chain letters that are
being sent broadcast over the United
States today was turned over to Post
office Inspector W. J. Maries for in
vestigation. The letter purports to have been
sent out in the interest of the Red
Cross society for the relief of suf
fering in belligerent European na
tions. Investigation at the headquarters
of the Red Cross organization in
Washington, however, revealed that
the plan had not been authorized by
the organization and that the officers
of the society had no knowledge that
an appeal of that kind was being dis
seminated through the country. The
letter turned over to Mr. Maries had
been sent to a Minneapolis woman by
a friend in Pittsburgh. The letter
was not signed. Another personal
letter came in the same mail, telling
the name of the sender. The letter
"Number 8. Dec. ,22, 1914.
"This chain letter is for the pur
pose of raising money for the relief
work in the European' war zone. The
proceeds are to be turned over to the
International Red Cross society.
"Kindly make five copies of this
note and send to five friends, num
bering each of the notes with the
number next higher to the number of
this note. (All five notes to bear the
same number.) And at the same
time inclose $.10 to Mrs. Wm. F.
Floyd, Box 31, Williamstown, Mass.
"The chain will end at number 12.
Those receiving that note should not
send out copies, merely the $.10 as
"Please do not break the chain,
as hundreds of dollars would thereby
I be lost,"
