No, I'm not writing about Spam email from strangers. Sometimes we get an email from a well meaning friend with a message or warning that just doesn't sound right. There are many chain letter and hoax emails circulating into in-boxes all the time. Check here for information about chain letters and hoax emails: Hoaxbusters "This document contains information about hoaxes, chain letters, urban myths and other bogus information being routed around the Internet."
There's an easy way to check for the validity of these messages before you pass them on to other unsuspecting friends in your email list. Use the search feature on any of these sites to see it the message might be true or false.
