Does anyone have the website that dispels whether a warning about
something running on the internet is a hoax or not? I just got a
warning about a world cup email, and believe that it is a hoax by what
is being said, however, need to really make sure before I blast the
sender for not checking first.
Many thanks in advance,
It sounds genuine to me. Events such as the World Cup are often used as a
ruse to get people to open unsolicited e-mails. It would help if companies
like eBay didn't send out warning messages which look exactly like hoaxes.
PPP: Any email you do not recognize just erase it without even
opening it. The very act of opening it tags you as a "live one" and
there are spam mail programs that put your email address into their
mailing list. My (and your?) service provider is quite good at
sniffing out spam mail these days but I don't take the risk.
