I received the “Life is Beautiful” virus hoax email from a relative today.
At the bottom of the email it stated:
PLEASE SEND A COPY OF THIS E-MAIL TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS and ask them to
PASS IT ON IMMEDIATELY! THIS HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY SNOPES.
If you go to that link, it says that the Life is Beautiful email is a hoax. The forwarder(s) didn’t actually check Snopes, they just believed what the email said.
