Tired of e-mail hoaxes,
like the Nigerian president's widow looking for a safe haven for her
inheritance? Here are a few steps you can take to fight back. First,
if you suspect a hoax, go to www.google.com and type in the subject
line of the E-mail and then the word "hoax." Google will provide you
with info. Second, visit the FTC's
website for more information about all kinds of scams. Third,
fill out a complaint form
. Studies have shown that the surest way to become a recipient
of these hoaxes is to be on someone's group mail list. Write to your
friends and relatives and kindly ask to be remove from all of their
group mailing lists.
