Summary of eRumor:
This email, said to be popular
among young people, says you need to forward it to 15 people within
fifteen minutes or you will die. It claims that the creator of
the email has a program that will track everyone who did or did not
send it and track down your address. It also claims that 5
people have died by not sending it.
The Truth: The version of this that was forwarded to us had one of the longest
lists of accumulated email addresses we have ever seen. We ran
the page through a program that isolates and counts the number of
email addresses. There were 3,180 of them...on one page.
It's a hoax. Like other "email this or die"
messages, it presents no evidence of what it claims. Most
importantly, there isn't any method by which the originator could
track every forwarded email, document those who did not forward it,
and detect their addresses.
A real example of the story as it has
Don't Open in Front of Parents....
Five people actually got killed by not sending this piece of mail.
The creator of this mail has a program that will track down everyone who
sent this mail and whoever that didn't send it will DIE DIE DIE DIE
DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE because this program can actually track down
Send this to 15 people within the next fifteen minutes or you will die
die die die die, what do you have to lose? Your life?
