Don’t Go Shopping!

I received the following and thought I’d pass it on…

I’m sending this to anyone who may decide to go on a shopping spree this day…....Who knows but with everything that is happening I wouldn’t take a chance…..

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.
