‘French-owned’ added as twist

A few months ago I received an e-mail similar to the one J.R. Young wrote about. The e-mail I received was a copy of a letter written by a Vietnam veteran. The basis of the e-mail was that Target was anti-veteran, French-owned and basically anti-American.

I looked into the letter and found on the VFW web page that the entire story was an Internet hoax. The original anti-Target letter was circulated in September of 2002. In 2003 someone added the French spin to keep up with the times.

Remember to look into things before you pass along the information.
