 ========= email contents start here ===============
Dear Reader,

I am writing this on behalf of my loving husband.
Everything was fine, me, my husband and our two children. We had a happy family. My husband was an Engineer in a big company. He comes home early and helps me with the house chores and plays with the children.
Our dreams was shattered in front of our eyes last week. It was a drunk lorry driver, who came on the wrong side and hit us and went.
It killed my little baby girl and left my husband paralyed. My husband is still in the hospital. His brain is damaged and he needs a operation. I need 5 lahks to save his life. I collected about 3 lahks from my friends and family. I need another 2 lahks.
I don’t want to lose him. He was such a wonderful husband & father. He still doesn’t know we lost our little girl. I am looking after my son now. Without my husband I won’t be able to takecare of him.
Please help me save my husband the one person I dearly love. I already lost my daughter and I don’t want to lose my husband as well. Please help us.
Thank you very much for your love & support. May God bless you.
Yours Truly,
Nirosha Silva
(I know you don’t like to forward mails. I am really sorry to bother you. If you have a heart and like to help a family, please forward this mail. Every mail you forward will add 5cents to AOL and they will deposit it to my bank account. Which will help me save my husband.)
Poor Guy

BILL GATES SHARING HIS FORTUNE email

Filed under: Awareness — Dinesh Gajbhiye @ 11:26 am

This one is an amazing mail about Bill Gates sharing his fortune. This mail is a HOAX and people are certainly getting fooled and forwarding it to their friends. The wonderful thing about this mail is it making rounds since 1997 and still going on 😉

========= start of mail contents =============== 

Dear Friends,
Please do not take this for a junk letter. Bill Gates is sharing his fortune. If you ignore this you will repent later. Microsoft and AOL are now the largest Internet companies and in an effort to make sure that Internet Explorer remains the most widely used program, Microsoft and AOL are running an e-mail beta test.

When you forward this e-mail to friends, Microsoft can and will track it (if you are a Microsoft Windows user) for a two week time period.

For every person that you forward this e-mail to, Microsoft will pay you $245.00, for every person that you sent it to that forwards it on, Microsoft will pay you $243.00 and for every third person that receives it, you will be paid $241.00. Within two week! s, Microsoft will contact you for your address and then send you a cheque.

============ end of mail contents ===============

Now let’s go into the reality, the Truth:

  • Microsoft and AOL haven’t merged yet and they are rivals of each other.
  •  Microsoft claims to not having any such email tracking system.
  •  The system is still in BETA mode since 1997 🙂
  •  Commonsense: Why the hell on this earth someone will share his fortune for such stupid thing.
