CHECK YOUR FACTS

DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ!

We all have received emails in our inbox with some wild claim. Sure, Microsoft really is going to send $1,000 to the 500th person that sends them an email. Often people forward these emails on and before you know it many people have incorrect information…that they believe. Before you forward that email to everyone you know or even just one person, why not check it out for yourself to see if it is valid or not. Put on your investigative reporter hat and try these sites.
