GAP is rewarding you for forwarding emails for the company-Fiction!

Forward an Email for Gap Clothing and Get Free Product-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor: 
There are several versions, but the theme is that GAP clothing wants to get the word out on the Internet and has set up a special way of tracking emails through hidden technology in Windows 95 and 98.  If you forward the email, you’ll get certificates or product.  The person sending the email claims to have received a box of clothing for participating.

The Truth:

This is among the numerous hoaxes on the Internet involving forwarded emails.  The GAP has officially denied participating in any promotion of this nature.  Also, there is no technology that can track forwarded emails on such a widespread basis. Additional note:  There is also a false story being circulated that GAP stands for “Gay and Proud.”
