Forwarded Emails Will Pay For The Heart Surgery of a Boy in Buenos Aires Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:

A little boy named Brian in Buenos Aires has a failing heart muscle.  An Internet service provider has offered to pay one cent per email that is forwarded with the subject “SOLIDARIDAD CON>>>BRIAN” to pay for Brian’s surgery.

The Truth:

Whether there is a little boy named Brian who needs surgery, we have not been able to confirm, but this email will not help him.  There is no way to track the forwarded emails.  This email is lacking the kind of information that would allow anyone to validate it.  We don’t know the boy’s city, hospital, last name, or the name of the alleged Internet service provider.
