Were you planning to go to the mall on Halloween? But not now, because a certain letter has appeared in your e-mail inbox, and you’re afraid?
If so, you’ve been frightened by what the FBI says is just the latest in a series of internet rumors.
Maybe these rumors are part of a plot to spread yet more terror, but more likely they’re the work of malicious individuals.
This latest example appears to have been originally sent by an employee of Volt Information Services in Orange, California. The employee, Laura Katsis, seems to have sent the letter to 15 friends. Since then, it has spread like a prairie fire across the internet.
