Read Through An Email…Make a Wish…The Phone Will Ring…And Your Wish Will Come TrueFiction!

Summary of eRumor:

According to the testimonials in this email, all you have to do read the stories in it, think of a wish as you scroll to the bottom, the telephone will ring, and your wish will come true.  That’s only if you forward it to at least five people, or else you’ll have years of bad luck.  Forward it to ten people, and something really big will happen.

The Truth:

For people who are superstitious, this kind of email is difficult to ignore.  It is part of a large number of emails that circulate the Internet that appeal to superstition and have no details in them that could possibly be validated.  

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:

Subject: This is freaky

This is freaky!!!! But ……:)

Supposedly The Phone Will Ring Right After You Do This.

Just read the little stories and think of a wish as you scroll all the way to the bottom. There is a message there then make your wish. No attachment on this one.

Stories…….. I’m 13 years old, and I wished that my dad would come home from the army, because he’d been having problems with his heart and right leg. It was 2:53 p.m. When I made my wish. At 3:07 p.m.(14 minutes later), the doorbell rang, and there my Dad was, luggage and all!!

I’m Katie and I’m 20 and I’ve been having trouble in my job and on the verge of quitting. I made a simple wish that my boss would get a new job. That was at 1:35 and at 2:55 there was an announcement that he was promoted and was leaving for another city. Believe me…this really works!!!

My name is Ann and I am 45 years of age. I had always been single and had been hoping to get into a nice, loving relationship for any years. While kind of daydreaming (and right after receiving this email) I wished that a quality person would finally come into my life. That was at 9:10 AM on a Tuesday. At 9:55 AM a FedEx delivery man came into my office. He was cute, polite and could not stop smiling at me. He started coming back almost everyday (even without packages) and asked me out a week later. We married 6 months later and now have been happily married for 2 years. What a great email it was!!

Just scroll down to the end, but while you do, think of a wish. Make your wish when you have completed scrolling. Whatever age you are, is the number of minutes it will take for your wish to come true (ex. you are 25 years old, it will take 25 minutes for your wish to come true)

However, if you don’t send this to 5 people in 5 minutes, you will have bad luck for years!! Go for it!!!



Your wish will now come true in your age minutes. Now follow this carefully….it can be very rewarding!!!! If you send this to 10 more people, other than the 5 that you already have to send to, something major that you’ve been wanting will happen.

Message: This is scary! The phone will ring right after you do this!
