Free Cracker Barrel certificates for forwarded emails-Fiction!

Forward an Email About Cracker Barrel-Receive a Gift Certificate in ResponseFiction!

Summary of eRumor:

Junior Johnson, the founder of Cracker Barrel, says he’s trying to reach the rural areas where his stores are not located.  If you forward his email to nine of your friends, you’ll receive authorization by email for a $50 gift certificate.

The Truth:

This is a hoax.  The Cracker Barrel company says they don’t know who Junior Johnson is and that they are not giving gift certificates in response to forwarded emails.

This is one of a large number of emails that are promising rewards for forwarding emails to others…none of which is true.  There is no practical way to track forwarded emails in this way.
