The Person on the Bridge

Forward an Email-See a Person Standing on a Bridge-Fiction!

Summary of 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 standing on the bridge.  The sender asks “Let me know if you know the person?”  

The Truth:

This is one of those emails that appeals to the notion that forwarded messages are somehow tracked and that the Internet will know that you have forwarded it to 5 people.

The fact is that no one will appear on the bridge.  Somehow people get a kick out of creating a meaningless message that they know will get forwarded by unknowing victims.
