Hoax e-mails about missing children

Post  Guest on Wed 10 Feb - 22:49

Don't know why anyone would want to do this as it's sick, but this information was sent to me by one of the Missing Charities I help out:

Hoax e-mails about missing children

Recently more and more emails are being sent, focusing attention on a missing child. Unfortunately these messages, which are sent with the best of intentions, are forwarded to family, friends and acquaintances often weeks after the missing child has already returned. This can be damaging to the child that was missing and generates unnecessary e-mails.

Other than the real messages about children which have already returned, recently messages have started going around about non-existent children that are supposed to be missing.

Therefore, if you receive an email about a missing child, please check that the child is still missing and if you believe that it may be a hoax, please let us know. If you cannot find the child listed as missing, please wait before forwarding this message.

A child that is missing can be placed on the Missing Kids Website and people can visit the site and check the information. Once the child has been found, the information will be removed.

An example of some of these e-mails is shown below** :-

Abducted child hoax

Kent Police are urging the public not to pass on details of a current hoax which is circulating regarding the attempted abduction of a young girl at the Tesco store in Manston, Thanet, Kent.

This hoax has been circulated via e-mail and text stating that a girl had been taken from a trolley whilst her mother was shopping in the store.

Detectives have visited the store and have confirmed with security staff that no such incident had taken place.

Tesco head office has received reports of similar hoaxes in their stores in Scotland and in Doncaster, South Yorkshire areas.
Police are investigating the origins of this e-mail.

Example:

**Ashley Flores - missing child hoax

A number of hoax e-mails have been circulating over the past couple of years regarding 13 year old Ashley Flores. The message is these is similar to the following text:

>>Maybe if everyone passes this on, someone will see this child. That is how the girl from Stevens Point was found by circulation of her picture on tv. The internet circulates even overseas, South America, and Canada etc. Thanks. Please pass this to everyone in your address book. We have a Deli manager (Acme Markets) from Philadelphia, Pa who has a 13 year old daughter who has been missing for 2 weeks. Keep the picture moving on. With GOD on her side she will be found. "I am asking you all, begging you to please forward this email on to anyone and everyoneyou know, PLEASE. My 13 year old girl, Ashley Flores, is missing. She has been missing for now two weeks. It is still not too late. Please help us. If anyone any where knows anything, please contact me at: HelpfindAshleyFlores@yahoo.com. I am including a picture of her. All prayers are appreciated!! " It only takes 2 seconds to forward this. If it was your child, you would want all the help you could get.<<

This girl is not missing, therefore do NOT forward this message!
