DO NOT FORWARD THIS EMAIL IF...

Have you been receiving plenty of e-mails that required you to forward it lately? Here are the few safety tips for you to double check either you REALLY need to forward it.


DO NOT FORWARD THIS EMAIL IF...
  • It relates something that happened not to a friend, but to a friend of a friend.
  • It urges you to forward it to your entire address book.
  • It claims to be "TOP SECRET" or something equally hyperbolic.
  • It insists, "This is not a hoax." It doth protest too much.
  • There is no way to verify its claims or to contact the original sender.
  • It is chock-full of generalities and vague phrasing.
  • It promises easy money. Would a stranger offer something for nothing?
  • It threatens bad things if you do not forward it.
  • It claims it is providing information being withheld by the press, the government, the health establishment and so on.
  • It sounds too weird or too good to be true.

Do double check the contents before you forward them. Please do. It relates to you, your friends and your family safety.
