Forward emails for the medical costs of a girl named Fatima-Fiction!

 Forward Emails for Fatima’s Medical Costs-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor: 
The email says it’s from Fatima’s mother.  The little girl was hit by a car and has internal bleeding.  Her family does not have health insurance, so the mother has “made a deal” with a company that will pay three cents for every email that is forwarded about Fatima.

The Truth:
We have not been able to find anyone named Fatima who fits the description in this story.  It’s a hoax, however, because there is no special “encoding” of emails that tracks where they’ve been forwarded.  This is one of numerous “emails for money” eRumors on the Internet right now.
