The following chain letter is being forwarded around the internet:
Hello dear customer
We from Nokia, are very happy to see that the people on the internet are
visiting our page often. To keep the customers who use the internet
happy, we have developed a new series of mobile telephones called WAP
(wireless application protocol). They are made for people who are on
the road often and don't have the internet with them. They can now get

have heard about WAP, that's why we are spreading this e-mail around
the net. 'What's in it for me?', you'll probably think. Well, everyone
who forwards this message 10 times, will receive the Nokia 3210.
Everyone who forwards this message 25 times or more, will receive
the Nokia 7110, the first WAP telephone. Two weeks after you've forwarded
this message Nokia will contact you about your address. This message is
only for Microsoft Windows R users, Nokia can only see how much you've
forwarded the message if you use Windows 95 or newer.
