Tamara Martin Chain Letter
Netlore Archive: Variant of a 1997 email hoax claiming money will be sent to defray the medical costs of a young cancer victim every time the message is copied and forwarded.
Description: Email hoax
Circulating since: 1997
Email text contributed by Melissa P., 1997:
Hello. My name is Tamara Martin and I have severe lung and throat cancer due to second hand smoke. This chain was a final attempt to help solve my problem. For every one person that this letter is sent to, the national lung and cancer association will donate 6 cents to help me and other people like me become healthy again. If you do not pass this letter on, my life and memory will soon both be gone. So please, try to send this to at least 10 people. It is for a good cause. (By the way, be sure one of the people you send it to is "Cool12@AOL.COM" as he keeps track of the names that have passed this along.) I give my blessing to those who pass this along.
To those too selfish to take 2 minutes to do this, what goes around comes around.
