Hoaxes


To go along with our discussion on hoaxes, here are the websites to which I referred. These will allow you to find out whether a story contained in an e-mail you receive is a hoax or the truth:
Truth or Fiction
Snopes
In both of these 2 cases, just type some information from the e-mail in the search box and they will tell you the truthfulness of the story.
As we discussed, you should never forward an e-mail without making sure that it is true. It only takes a couple of minutes to check on it, if you bookmark one or both of these sites.
I like having both sites, as if I can't find information on one, I can, usually, find something on the other.
