A chain letter owned, or created by, Annie Rugg is claimed to be the biggest in the world (Saint Fidgeta and Other Parodies, 42).


A chain letter consists of a message that attempts to convince the recipient to make a number of copies of the letter and then pass them on to as many recipients as possible. One of the common methods used in chain letters is the exploitation of superstition to threaten the recipient with bad luck or even physical violence or death if he or she "breaks the chain" and refuses to adhere to the conditions set out in the letter[1].

Chain letters - either by paper or email - are condoned by the Catholic Church as violating the First Commandment[2].  This is further evidenced by the the Question Box Monderator's harsh responses that likens the act to summoning guardian angels with pentacles.
