Free Cash for Forwarding? Sorry, No

http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/nothing/microsoft-aol.asp

The AOL/Intel (and it’s varients)  mail-forwarding hoax is going around again. The link above explains in further detail. The general gist is that AOL/Intel (or Microsoft) is tracking forwarded emails & will offer cash incentives.

I have problems with these sorts of things for several reasons:

1.  It misrepresents these companies

2. No reputable company would use a tracking system of this nature if one did exist. This would be a horrible invasion of privacy.

3. It offers people false hopes and in exchange for forwarding these emails, all anyone is going to receive is spam (ick!)

Please help spread the word!
