Subject: warning

Thought I would pass this on.

Subject: FW: stay out of the Malls on 10/31
Importance: High

FYI - I was very skeptical of this e-mail so I called the telephone number and it really was Laura Katsis at work. She said that she did write and send the e-mail in reaction to what her girlfriend told her. This could still be a hoax, but I am taking it a little more seriously knowing that Laura is a real person who admits writing the e-mail and who stands behind what she wrote.

Hi All -
I think you all know that I don't send out hoaxes and don't do the reactionary thing and send out anything that crosses my path. This one, however, is a friend of a friend and I've given it enough credibility in my mind that I'm writing it up and sending it out to all of you. My friend's friend was dating a guy from Afghanistan up until a month ago. She had a date with him around 9/6 and was stood up. She was understandably upset and went to his home to find it completely emptied. On 9/10, she received a letter from her boyfriend explaining that he wished he could tell her why he had left and that he was sorry it had to be like that. The part worth mentioning is that he BEGGED her not to get on any commercial airlines on 9/11 and to not to go any malls on Halloween. As soon as everything happened on the 11th, she called the FBI and has since turned over the letter.

This is not an email that I've received and decided to pass on. This came from a phone conversation with a long-time friend of mine last night. I may be wrong, and I hope I am. However, with one of his warnings being correct and devastating, I'm not willing to take the chance on the second and wanted to make sure that people I cared about had the same information that I did.

Ya know that is the thing today anything is possible. Many of the problems on the airlines of the last few days were the same type of nutzo people that were doing it over the last couple of years. I will heed your warning, as all others I receive. It took courage for you to post this, and thank you.
I got to thinking the other day, just how casual we have all become with life here in the good ole USA, I was washing potatoes for dinner. Think about how many times over the years, that we didn't wash our vegetables with a scrubber, Grandma wouldn't have thought about it. Or boiling water, my neighbor said he was, and I got to thinking that is because he has a baby at home, and we all boiled our water. So, we just have to remember all that we have taken for granted, that false sense of safty, and be more careful. Thanks for sharing.

I felt that it was important enough. I hope that others look in on this thread today maybe I should have called it something else to get the attention it needs.

Thanks Pam g fu, recieving an Email like that must have been really worrying for you,I think you did the right thing.
I can't help worrying about what might happen.I and all of the citizens of the United Kingdom feel empathy for the victims of this hideous, cowardly act.I can't help worrying that more might be to come.
I live just outside London and my partner works away and I can't help thinking that England might be at risk from an attack too.
What can any of us do to prevent these gutless people from carrying out attacks? They say they will die for their religious beliefs yet they are too cowardly to surrender to the American Government and instead they hide away and let their "People" face attacks! My heart goes out to all the people affected and since this happened I have been saying prayers for them all.What sort of a world do we live in,it doesn't bear thinking about.I'll keep on praying to God that thngs will stop,thats all any of us can do. x x
My deepest sympathy to u all x x x

Yes it is very bothersome especiall since I gotten another e-mail of the same thing from another friend of mind that she received today. And we have explosives missing where I live and that is another strange occurrence. All we can do is pray about it. Today marks a month since their attack on the towers.

Looks like it's a hoax. That's somewhat of a relief, but also really pisses me off that people are starting to prey on fears. NOT funny.

Visit the URL below for a list of other hoaxes as well.

Disinformation is bad news. Then when the truth does surface - it won't be listened to. Best thing to do in these times is to listen to your "gut instinct". That little voice that we so often override and go - No, I won't list to it because it's this and that. We need to catch ahold of that little voice and turn up the volume and listen....it's right, more than wrong.

Thanks for the info. I too received the email and since I never take my kids to the mall on Halloween I will continue to not do so. I have spoken to friends and family to do the same. I have put 2 calls in myself to the references on the email and am awaiting calls back. I agree, how can others play on people's fears-it is cowardly and so disheartening. If people do things for the sake of their religion, then shame on those who think destroying others is really in the plans of their religion. Maybe they truly don't understand religion and the above most high whichever religion they choose. Let's face it-how do people think life really began if there is no higher person. May God bless them and whomever they believe is their leader to a better life.

See, this is the kind of stuff that's going to make us all crazy. It's not bad enough we're all privately waiting for the other shoe to drop, we have nutsys here at home with nothing better to do than think of other ways to alarm already vulnerable people. And what better way than to use the Net? I agree Ladeska, we all have to do what we're comfortable with, and we all have to be careful and watchful and aware of our surroundings. But I have a few friends who are probably stressing themselves right into an early grave because they can't stop thinking that middle eastern looking men are going to kamikazee themselves right into their living rooms. Everybody has to do what they need to do, but if you believe that every mall in America is in danger on Halloween, well, whew, I gotta say I think that's a little over the edge. This is another sensational story... I've checked out 3 so far in the last week.

Everyone BE CAREFUL, BE ALERT, but please don't fall prey to the goofballs, that's what the terrorists are hoping we Americans will do.

"A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once"....paraphrased, my apologies to the author, but I hope you guys get my drift.

Check out http://www.snopes2.com They have answers to all these stories. I'm sure it was posted here with the utmost sincerity, but like Gingerleigh said, it's a hoax. Not to say that now that it's been circulated around the world on the Net some looney wont blow up a mall somewhere now. We Americans are good at crap like that. God Bless us.

I'm sorry. I just get so mad at US. Why do we feel the need to destroy ourselves instead of trying to heal each other, someone takes the time to scare us more?? Man's inhumanity to man. Dont get me wrong, I want us all to be smart, but not scared to death.

By the way Pam, I want to make it clear that I believe you posted it sincerely. I thank you for passing it on to help us. I'm just saying, it, like so many, are being circulated sincerely and it's a hoax. These hoax websites have checked out the people who supposedly wrote them. But thank you for the heads up anyway. It's not you or the other 2 folks I received this from that I get mad at, it's the jerk who wrote it to begin with..

Ditto, Alena. Pamgfu, I also believe that you were just passing on a warning to the group, and I wasn't attacking your sincerity. I actually told a friend about it, who thought it might be prudent to check it out against a hoax site, and voila, turns out that it was a hoax. I just want to make it clear that I wasn't questioning Pam.
