E-MAIL HOAX CIRCULATING
If you’re one of those people getting e-mail that says internet users
can get a free laptop computer by forwarding the e-mail message to eight
friends, don’t hold your breath waiting for the laptop to arrive.
The offer of free computers from Ericsson Company is a hoax – according
to Snopes.com – the Urban Legends Reference Page.
Snopes says the bogus e-mail is one of many “long-running internet
hoaxes that has been circulating in one form or another since 1997”.
