We see them nearly every day, e-mails with headlines begging to be passed on.
The vast majority, however, are hoaxes and urban legends. Virus warnings may
also be a hoax, and following their instructions could damage your
computer. Passing these e-mails unverified on to your friends and
relatives clogs the Internet and e-mail servers. Before forwarding
them and contributing to the problem, please check the page below
