Gleneagles Hospital Warning of Poisonous Perfume Arriving in Homes by Mail-Fiction!

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.

The Truth:

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.

This is a new version of an old eRumor that surfaced several years ago and TruthOrFiction.com has finding posted. Click for our report.
