I made up a hoax once, and it got back to me in about a week.

People are suckers and believe anything they get in email.

I heard that you can get lots of $ by holding down the shift key and pressing 4. Works for me, but I'm still poor...

It's crazy isn't it? I've seen people receive an email saying "you need to delete win.exe or someone from the internet will get all your passwords and trash your machine" and they go ahead and do it. Unbelievable.
