    Hi-tech Hoax

    With the advent of the internet and email, the old fashioned chain letter has had to re-invent itself. These days they come in the form of an email, often offering free goods or services if you pass it on immediately to a number of other email addresses.

    At the moment there is a hoax email circulating about getting a free phone if you send an email on to 8 or 20 of your friends. This is a genuine hoax. I have checked with Nokia and got the following response:

    "... Anna Swelan does not work for Nokia. If you have received an advertisement with instructions to e-mail her, you have received a HOAX message. This is a virus-type chain letter, which does not originate from Nokia. 550 5.1.1 ... User unknown"

    So please, if you get this email, don't send it on to your friends - instead send this message to your friends so you don’t get your own email box flooded.
