Aw, look happy white people, and a roll of film. There are photos enclosed, let’s take a look at more photos of the happy white people.
WTH!? Where did the happy white people go?
There is a lot going on in this mailer, blue writing, yellow highlighter, a check for $5 and graphic photos.

The letter is very interesting. Here are some highlights:
“Look at the photos I have enclosed. They are proof-postive of the bloody terrorism against Chinese Christians!!!
That is why I need you to help make this THOUSAND TIMES MIRACLE a reality for our suffering Christian brothers and sisters throughout China. Think of it.
WITH EVERY GIFT OF $5 WE CAN SMUGGLE ONE BIBLE INTO CHINA. BUT UNDER THE THOUSAND TIMES MIRACLE, ONE BIBLE CAN BE MULTIPLIED ONE THOUSAND TIMES.”
“THIS PROMISE IS ALSO FOR YOU, IF YOU WILL GIVE A SPECIAL GIFT FOR THE ONE THOUSAND TIMES MIRACLE MATCH, I AM GOING TO PRAY THAT GOD WILL MULTIPLY YOUR GIFT BACK TO YOU 1,000 TIMES!!! COULD YOU USE A ONE THOUSAND TIMES MIRACLE IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE? RUSH YOUR SEED GIFT TO ME TODAY!”
Those poor Chinese Christians being punished for practicing their faith in China. Oh look a message from Nora on the back of the photo:
“The cruel brutality of the communists is finally exposed (photo for illustration purposes only)”
WHAT! You put those nasty photos in my mail and they are just random people being tortured in China. The one of the lady is from a protest by the Falun Gong to act out torture. Another is a demonstration of “Dead person’s bed” from 2004. The one of a guy behind bars is also from a Falun Gong protest from 2004. Just to be clear, Falun Gong is not a Christian based religion. It is derived from Buddhist and Taoist traditions. These photos have nothing to do with Christians caught reading bibles in China.
I want to focus on the check that was included with this mailer. This one is for $5. That is a lot for this type of check. They are usually for $2.50 or less. Do not deposit these checks. They give these “charities” access to your account. They will then take money out of your account every month. I have read every part of the letters they send, and no where does it say that you are agreeing to a monthly donation if you deposit the check. The woman who’s mail this is had 3 groups taking money out of her account every month.
