Gleneagles Hospital Warning of Poisonous Perfume Arriving in Homes by Mail-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
This is a forwarded email from the Office of Risk Management that says Gleneagles Hospital treated seven women after inhaling free perfume samples that they received in the mail. The warning said that the women died and the poisonings could be terrorist related.
This warning is a hoax, according to an official notice from the Gleneagles Intan Medical Centre located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Also, the person whose name appeared in this eRumor from the Office of Risk Management told TruthOrFiction.com that they are not the originator of this warning.
It appears that some prankster may have added an official representative from the Office of Risk Management in Washington, DC to lend credibility to the hoax which was also posted the facebook web site.

Seven women have died after inhaling a free perfume sample that was mailed to them. The product was poisonous. If you receive free samples in the mail such as lotions, perfumes, diapers etc. throw them away. The government is afraid that this might be another terrorist act. They will not announce it in the news because they do not want to create panic or give the terrorists new ideas. Send this to all your friends and family members.
