I received an e-mail yesterday which warned of a new virus, cited snopes.com for verification and advised me to pass the information along to everyone I know and care about immediately.
Well, I have double-checked with snopes.com for my own personal satisfaction, and snopes does NOT verify it. Read it for yourselves, if you wish.
Have a bit of patience getting to the site ... all sorts of popups want to appear ... but snopes' central message is loud and clear and one we should all keep in mind:
Never open an attachment from someone or a source you do not know and trust.
