Summary of the eRumor: In the message is a beautiful picture of a
bridge in a wooded setting. The message underneath the picture says
that if you forward the message to at least 5 people a person will appear

the notion that forwarded messages are somehow tracked and that the
Internet will know that you have forwarded it to 5 people.

this bridge . Let me know if you know the person ? OKAY !
