You probably receive them
regularly — e-mailed chain letters that promise a big return on a small
investment. Most contain a list of names and addresses and instruct you to send
a few dollars to the person at the top of the list, remove that name from the
list, and add your own name to the bottom. The fraudulent promise behind chain
letters is that by the time your name gets to the top of the list, so many
people will be involved that you'll receive a fortune. One recently circulated
e-mail chain letter promised earnings of "$50,000 or more within the next
90 days of sending e-mail." These e-mail messages often falsely claim
that, "this is not a chain letter, but a perfectly legal money-making
opportunity." Or they may include personal testimonials that are hard to
prove and often fabricated.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) reminds you that chain letters that involve money or other valuables and promise big returns are illegal. If you start one or forward one, you are breaking the law and could be prosecuted for mail fraud. This applies whether a chain letter is sent by e-mail or regular mail.
What should you do if you receive a potentially illegal e-mail chain letter? DO NOT REPLY OR PARTICIPATE. You can also report the scam to the FTC at email@example.com. If you receive a chain letter via regular mail, call the Postal Inspection Service toll-free at 1-888-877-7644.

Question: I'm having a problem with
e-mail attachments. When I receive an e-mail with an attachment (usually a Word
document), I open the file, make and save my changes, and then forward the
edited file to a co-worker. When my co-worker opens the Word document, none of
my changes have been saved. What am I doing wrong?
Answer: It sounds like you are failing to first save the attached Word document to your computer's hard drive. Making changes to a file without first saving the file to your computer will not save your changes. Next time, save the file to your hard drive. Then you can open the document, make your edits, save the changes to your file, prepare an outgoing e-mail message, and then add the edited document as an attachment to the outgoing message. Your edited version of the file will be sent to the recipient.
