It is from a local neighborhood watch scheme member and comes from Kent Police so rest easy most of this stuff is a Hoax but be on your guard and it is always better to be safe than sorry
Here is a general information message about bogus emails.
We all receive emails from well meaning friends who pass on to us warnings about various subjects and asking us to pass the information on to all our friends.
This request to pass on information is a clue that this is an email designed to cause congestion on the system. In all cases I have come across, the email can be verified as genuine or hoax by visiting the following web-site.
This very useful site lists all emails true and false, and usually provides details of the origins of the emails so that before passing on hoax emails the information can be verified.
I hope this information will help people to decide whether or not to pass on their emails.
Thats all I have for you today, thank you.
