Has anyone got one of these letters in the mail? It's like a chain letter but for kids and stickers.
My sister in law sent one to DS and to be honest, it's really annoying. I don't want to participate but I don't want my nephew to be disappointed if I don't follow through. Why do people send this crap??

I'm not familiar with this particular letter, but I think chain letters are an absolute pain!
I remember receiving one when I was in primary school and my mum was quite furious about it.

I think I know the one. I'd just send your nephew some stickers, and a note to your SIL explaining Ponzi schemes and why one shouldn't participate in this kind of fraudulent nonsense.

We got one through one of the preschool mums and she was very apologetic about it. I felt bad and ended up doing it. I only had to send it on to 6 friends and send one pack of stickers to the first name on the list. It seems like a pain but to be honest it actually turned out great. DD loved getting all the mail and stickers and would have a chat to the postie everyday she saw him! We didn't end up getting 36 letters so I guess a few people it was sent to ignored it. But I am grateful to the 10 , or so who made the effort.

I get what you mean though, I'm just assuming it's the sort of thing that promises you greater returns than your initial investment. Where that's only possible through infinite recruitment of participants...
