Email Hoaxes

There are a lot of stories, rumors, and urban legends circulating around on the Internet.
Realize that not everything you receive in e-mail is true.

Examples include the e-mails that tell you to forward to ten friends and you’ll receive money/gift certificates from a favorite store.

Another harmful example is the e-mail that claims a virus may have been installed on your computer and you should delete a certain file. Often this file is a necessary one for your computer. Make sure you delete these types of hoax e-mails and don’t pass them on.
