Chain text messages are similar to spam emails that have been going around for years. But while most spam emails and chain text messages promise you love or good luck for forwarding it, some chain text messages tell you that if you don’t do what it tells you to do, you’ll die. Putting a stop to chain text messaging starts with never sending one yourself.
Realize how ridiculous the promise of love or luck and claims of “you’ll die unless you send this on” truly are. Don’t be one of those people who decide they’d better not take the chance, and sends the chain text message to the required number of people. You’re only perpetuating the annoyance. Just delete it and forget about it. Tell your friends to stop sending you chain text messages, that it’s annoying to you.
