Scott appeared before the State Board

ECU medical school.

"There are those who say we don't

Because of a 476 per cent increase in
unlawful chain letter activity, U.S.
Postmaster Winton Blount has ordered a
nation-wide crackdown on those who
perpetuate the scheme through the mail.
Under current postal lottery and fraud
laws, chain letters are regarded as
non-mailable. They are illegal because of
the likelihood of the chain being broken
and yielding no profit to the mailer
regardless of his participation.
Chief Postal Inspector William J.
Cotter recently revealed the amount of
such schemes had jumped from 97 in
August, 1969, to 559 by the end of
enjoying the he3t wave. (Staff photo by

It wiU come down, probably, to a test
of UNCs cohesive, aggressive style of
team play against South Carolina's
carefully regulated offensive tempo. But
you know that, too.
Cotter said the chain letter activity
usually involved cash but also used items
such as U.S. Savings Bonds and Postal
According to Cotter, those who
receive profits from chain letters are
those who got into the chain from the
start. Latter entries seldom, if ever,
recoup their investments.
As an example, endless chains, as they
are called, are rarely endless. A chain
letter requiring each participant to mail
out six letters would progress so rapidly
that it would theoretically reach every
inhabitant on the earth who is literate if
it were followed to the 1 1th power.
Occasionally the promoter sets himself
up to reap all the profit. In a recent case.
Cotter used as an example a chain which
was uncovered using the bereaved families
of soldiers killed in Vietnam.
Cotter related, "In this scheme, the
promoter posed as a grieving father
himself and attempted to lure 100
families into a chain letter swindle where
all the proceeds were to be sent back to
him under five aliases at different
An additional 1,000 families were
slated to be targets when the promoter
was arrested and subsequently sentenced
to three years in prison.
The letters he actually mailed could
have netted him more than 530,000 if he
had been allowed to continue but the
prompt action by postal inspectors
prevented any public loss."
On the other hand, articles such as
postcards, recipes and things of that sort
are considered to be mailable because
they do not involve a thing of value under
the present law.
However, postal cards in "good luck"
chain prayers containing a threat to those
who break the chain are illegal under a
Liw that prohibits the placement of
threatening matter on the outside of mail.
Cotter urged the public to be alert for
these schemes and to turn over all such
matter to the local postmasters.
