Forward an Email for Jasmine, Who Lost Her Father in The World Trade Center and Whose Mother Needs Surgery-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:The message is allegedly from an 11-year-old named Jasmine whose father died in the collapse of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, and whose mother is hospitalized. She says her mother worked in the Trade Center but forgot to take her purse on September 11. Her father drove to the Trade Center to deliver the purse. He died. The mother survived, but needs surgery and if you forward her email, the Red Cross will donate ten cents per email for her medical care. She says her father's name was James Thomas.
This is a hoax. Any emails that claim that anyone will receive compensation from a person or company who is tracking forwarded emails is a hoax. There is no such system being used on the Internet. Just for the record, there doesn't seem to be a victim from the World Trade Center named James Thomas.
A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
My name is Jasmine .
I’m 11 years old.
My mommy worked on the 20th floor
in the World Trade Tower.
On Sept. 11 2001 my daddy drove my mom to work.
She was running late so she left her purse in the car.
My daddy seen it so he parked the car and went
to give her the purse.
That day after school my daddy didn’t come to pick me up.
Instead a police man came and took me to foster care .
Finally I found out why my daddy never came..
I really loved him….
They never found his body..
My mom is in the the Hospital since then..
She is losing lots of blood..
She needs to go through surgery..
