Have You Been The Victim Of An Internet Hoax?

Posted: Updated:

We're talking about Internet hoaxes this morning...and whether you've been duped before.

For example this completely bogus story going around this week that Ann Coulter refused to fly on an airline because the pilot was an African-American woman....it originated from satire website "The Daily Currant".

Then we went to another website that prides itself on ‘punking' the mainstream media...here you can create your own celebrity death hoax...it took us less than a minute to make Steve missing in the Congo after a dispute on the set of the movie.

Thanks to one of our Facebook friends who reminded us of this website: snopes.com...it tracks the 25 hottest urban legends currently circulating...so a good place to go to check out potential hoaxes.
