Internet hoaxes

Is your email box filled with forwarded messages from friends containing dire warnings of viruses? Offers of free money? Children in trouble? Threats to your health or safety? Did you ever wonder how to determine whether a story is true before passing it on? An easy way is to check out the website hoaxbusters. This site organizes email chain letters by categories, and is also searchable. A similar Ernster approved site is the Urban Legends Reference Pages.
Two excellent ways to stop the madness!
