LATEST E-MAIL HOAX

to cross my in-box.

This one connected to my non-existent paypal account:

It isn't exactly like this one, but since I don't have a PayPal account, I think I'll chalk this one up as a hoax as well.


Comments:
I got that one twice. I think much needs to be said of the ridiculousness of CNN's coverage, and The Daily Show's superior coverage.
