Emails about Savannah Foraker and She'll Get Financial Help for Her
This email says it's from
Antonia Foraker of Delight,
West Virginia and that her daughter Savannah has a rare blood
disease. The email says that local businesses have offered to pay a nickel
for each email that is forwarded about her. The email then lists the names
of her family and an email address to respond to.
appears to be a hoax. There is no
Delight, West Virginia, nobody with the first or last names in the email found in West Virginia, and the person who owns the email address listed says he knows
nothing about the story. Additionally, there is no way for your forwarded
emails to be tracked.
A real example of the story as it has been circulated:
Dear Friends, My name is Antonia Foraker from Delight, WV. My youngest
daughter, Savannah, was diagnosed with a rare blood disease in January of
2000. Savannah, who will turn four on February 29, is a bright, happy
young girl who likes watching Sesame Street and playing with her two older
sisters. Unfortunately, there isn't much doctors can do for her right now.
Our medical costs have become extremely expensive. Three local companies
have promised to give $.05 each for every time this email is forwarded. If
you wouldn't mind forwarding this to everyone on your list I would greatly
appreciate it as well as my daughter. Your good deeds could really save
her life. Please take a few seconds to help us in our time of need. I know
how many of these go around and I want you to know that they really help,
if you would like to contact us, our e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please have a heart and forward this. . Thank you, The Forakers Earl,
Antonia, Michaela, Amber, and Savannah
