an Email, Get Medical Care for Kalin from Alabama-
Summary of eRumor:
email says it is from Katie Relek of Alabama. It says her son, Kalin, is 7 years
old and was struck by a car in front of her home. She says he's
alive, but in serious condition, has internal bleeding, and needs
surgery. She doesn't have health insurance but has arranged with a
company called "BCC Inc." that for every email about Kalin that
is forwarded by the readers, five cents will be donated toward his medical
is a hoax. No verifying information about this story has been found
and there is no way for an organization to keep track of forwarded emails
even if it wanted to donate money for them.
A real example of the story as it has
Hello, my name is Katie Relek, and I live in Alabama.
Well, this is important for you to read, because I really need your
cooperation. It is so imporant for you to know about what I want to tell
Ok, let me start. Ok, a couple of days ago, my son, heís 7 years old,
his name is Kalin. Well,he was playing on the street, infront of our
house, and then from out of nowhere, this car came out and crashed into
him! I was so frightened and angered at the driver, but it ended out to
be, that the drivers brakes had been shot, and he wasnít able to stop.
Luckily, my son, was able to avoid death, but he is in very serious
condition. Right now, as I speak, heís in the hospital, but the thing
is, he has the serious injury to himself. Itís internal bleeding, and itís
bad to say, but we donít have any health insurance, and we donít have
enough money to pay for the operation.
So I made a deal with a company, BCC inc. And they told me, for every
person that will foward this email, heíll donate 5 cents To the
operation. THIS IS NO JOKE. We attached this type of encoding, that
tracked how many times this message was fowarded. SO PLEASE, FOWARD THIS
LETTER TO EVERY PERSON ON YOUR LIST. IT WILL BE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH
