Reminder To Everyone That "Forwards" Emails....

DO NOT believe everything you're sent....I learned this the hard way a couple years ago when everyone was emailing each other about that "teddy bear" icon in the Microsoft files that was "supposidly" a time-released virus,my Aunt Sue emailed that hoax to everyone in her address book...turns out it was just a java debugger.
Example: This morning, after getting home from work, find an email, heavily forwarded, telling everyone not to "lick envelopes"...thought the story sounded "fishy", so went to the old trusty "Truth or Fiction" website (learned about it on TechTV around about the time that "teddy bear" thing was going around)... sure enough, the story is a complete fabrication....details are HERE...
