Merle and Sam are correct on all counts. This Neiman-Marcus story has been around for several years. A similar scam is the Bill Gates BETA Chain Letter (forward to 1000 people and get $1000 and Windows98, from "Your friend, BIll Gates") There are perhaps 1000's of other chain letter themes that refuse to go away. Here's what experts have to say:
Chain letters are illegal. Chain letters are a waste of time. Net sites which do not discourage electronic chain letters risk losing their net connections, as they have the potential for wasting great amounts of bandwidth and disk space.
