Thanks for the warning, fortunately I have not received e-mails of this sort, and as you say when passing a message on to more than one person always use Bcc not To. This is what I have always done as I don't want anyone else to know my friends and colleagues addresses.
Love and best wishes,
Thanks for your warning.
I would also like to point out that I never forward emails from somebody asking for help or charity. Most of them are hoax and for me simply junk mails and treated accordingly. I also treat as junk mails all mails I received where they ask me to forward to others for good luck or romance etc.
Thank you for confirming that there are people out there who collect email address to sell on and for warning us about how to use Bcc when sending to more than one person. I've always been suspicious about chain emails and really dislike the ones that threaten harm to you if you don't forward them on.
Also, I'm sure you know this already, but to find out if it is a hoax email you can put the title or a description into Google search and it will take you to a website that tells you if it is genuine or not.
With best wishes,
Thanks Katie. Didn’t know about the Google search thing. Now I do. Thanks again.
