chain letters

I just got one of those letters instructing me to send $1.00 to 6 people asking them to place me on their mailing list. It instructs me to copy & send out 200 such letters with my name added to the #6 position. It says that it could result in large sums of money being sent to me by people wanting to be placed on my mailing list. It refers me to Title 18:1302 & 1324 (which, when I search, does not exist). 1302 is not specifically clear if this is really illegal or not, since it refers more to lottery, gifts. prizes, etc. Is this type of letter illegal? Thank you
