Email hoax – missing child

DON’T FORWARD THIS.  IT’S A HOAX!  Before forwarding anything like this, it’s a good idea to check your sources like Snopes.com which I’ve linked to below.
These scams just waste our time but more importantly, they  tie up more Internet bandwidth slowing everyone else down, and it uses more of your emailing sending limit.  Yes, you probably didn’t know there is an email sending limit and most people don’t reach it unless you’re sending mass amounts of email like this example below.  I tried another test just today and it bounced back a message to me saying this particular domain I’m sending from has reached is maximum sending of 50 emails per hour.  The other emails have been discarded.  So your emails won’t all go out and you’ll be stuck not being able to send email for another hour.

My 15 year old boy, Evan Trembley, is missing.
He has been missing for now two weeks.

Maybe if everyone passes this on, someone will see this child.
That is how the girl from Stevens Point was found by circulation
of her picture on tv. The internet circulates even overseas,
South America , and Canada etc.
Please pass this to everyone in your address book.
With GOD on his side he will be found.
