....Send hoax and chain letter emails on to others in our address books.

Have we not received enough now to stop us doing it?

It is so easy to check on the internet if something is a hoax or not.

This is the latest one doing the rounds about Bill gates sharing his fortune - as if!

If you receive a circular email offering the chance of something for nothing it really is too good to be true - just press delete and save our email boxes! :roll:

I must'nt be on anyone's buddy list because I never get chain emails :cry:

 

I do get one of these though every two weeks and have done for the last couple of years. It really pees me off that blatent attempts at identity theft like this are allowed to continue unchecked.

Just an after thought. Maybe I have got a buddy in Nat-West Nigera because they addresses me as Bill rather than William :lol:
