DON'T BE TRICKED BY AN INTERNET HOAX!
Generally speaking... people will not ask you to delete files, forward
email to sick or dying children, win free items or send money. If you receive a heartwarming "true" story, a scary government
conspiracy or a get rich quick scheme... before you forward it to all of the special people in your life... check out
the validity by visiting www.snopes.com. You'll save yourself a LOT of embarrassment if you do! If you have an urge to send someone money...
send it to me!
THE "FORWARDER'S" 12 STEP PROGRAM
EVERYONE REPEAT AFTER ME ...
1.. I will NOT get bad luck, lose my friends, or lose my mailing lists
if I DON'T forward an email!
2.. I will NOT hear any music or see a taco dog, if I do forward an e-mail.
Bill Gates is NOT going to send me money, Victoria Secret doesn't know anything about a gift certificate they're supposed
to send me.
4.. Ford will NOT give me a 50% discount even if I forward my e-mail to more than 50 people!
I will NEVER receive gift certificates, coupons, or freebies from Coca Cola, Cracker Barrel, Old Navy, or anyone else if I
send an e-mail to 10 people.
6.. I will NEVER see a pop-up window if I forward an e-mail NEVER--NEVER!!
There is NO SUCH THING as an e-mail tracking program, and I am not STUPID enough to think that someone will send me $100 for
forwarding an e-mail to 10 or more people!
8.. There is NO kid with cancer through the Make-a-Wish program in England
collecting anything! He did when he was 7 years old. He is now cancer free and 35 years old and DOESN'T WANT ANY MORE POST
CARDS, or GET-WELL CARDS.
9.. The government does not have a bill in Congress called 901B (or whatever they named it
this week) that, if passed, will enable them to charge us five cents for every e-mail we send.
10.. There will be NO
cool dancing, singing, waving, colorful flowers, characters, or program that I will receive immediately after I forward an
e-mail. NONE, ZIP, ZERO, NADA!!
11.. The American Red Cross will NOT donate 50cents to a certain individual dying
of some never-heard-of disease for every e-mail address I send this to. The American Red Cross RECEIVES donations.
And finally, I WILL NOT let others "guilt" me into sending things by telling me I am not their friend or that I don't believe
in Jesus Christ. If God wants to send me a message, I believe the bushes in my yard will burn before He picks up a PC to pass
Now, repeat this to yourself until you have it memorized, and then send it along to at least 5 of your friends
before the next full moon or you will surely be constipated for the next three months and all of your hair will fall out!
