Re: [IP] careful



I know people are well meaning, but the greatest form of spam are people
sending out these type of notices without first checking them out.

This is a hoax.  In the future, please refer to www.snopes.com to verify
messages of this nature.  DON'T ASSUME IT'S TRUE JUST BECAUSE IT SAYS ITS
REAL!!!

For more info on this hoax, go to:

Verify information you receive before hitting the "Forward" button and
clogging up our worthwhile list with this type of spam.

Thank you.
