Comment: The Mars - Must See in August is circulating again...how can we
put a stop to these old, outdated emails, other than the obvious of not
forwarding them? Can they be forwarded to some spam network that can put
a stop to them.....just trying to prevent being bothered by these useless
emails.

Comment: My computor is obsolete & I am looking for a new one. Could you
tell me which computor seems to be the best for general information for a
housewife who also, likes to play games. I don't need all the fancy
stuff, but just one that is dependable.

The Honeywell H316 Kitchen Computer is just what you need little lady.

Comment: Any reports on what's happening with MSN Hotmail? Hotmail will
not come up on my computer for the last 2 or 3 days. All other websites
do.

Comment: So I know this isn't what you all usually do but I am hopeless.
My name is Jennifer XXXXXX and several years ago I entered into an
online photo contest with a photo of a lily that had color effects. I was
among others to be selected to be published in a coffee table book. I have
no record of the picture or the org. that did the contest, or even what
year this all was in. It would mean alot to me to be able to have this
photo back in my hands. I Have searched all I know how on the internet but
haven't found anything.

Comment: How long can an automobile mechanic keep your car for repair?
Each time I inquire they ask me to give them 4 more days. This has been
going on for over a month now. Not to mention they dropped my car an
broke my replacement transmission, that they are telling me that is is no
good.

Canada

Comment: I keep getting mail at at my other email address.

It says it is a Canadian Pharmacy. I never subscribed to it and when I
tried to unsubscribe, I got an email said my payment was received. NEVER
ORDERED ANYTHING. They have a phon no. listed and when I called, the
operator says it is a non working number. There is also a crazy address
listed as follows: Canadian Pharmacy 834 AM Vjno Blvd. Nuwabgj, Unguomo,
52839 What is this and how do I get rid of it. I already changed my
mail controls for aol to only accept mail from people in my address book
and I don't want them to get hold of my bellsouth address. WHAT CAN I DO?

OK, it was an online photo contest and you want your photo back?

But surely snopes, in his generous free time, can weed this person's photo out of the hundreds of millions of photos that have been posted online, right? After all, he's Supersnopes, Master of The Interwebs!

Comment: I am receiving typical scams from Nigeria. Have received
two in the last two days on my MAC. How do I get this to stop?

Is this coming through my Verizon account or through
my MAC mail?

Comment: I had contacted your site a while ago about a wealthy relative
and his family getting burned to death in an auto accident and you
responded about the Nigerian scam - these same people are now contacting
me pretending to be Mr. Mueller of the FBI, located in Washington DC. The
article said the $6,500,000. was indeed mine and all I had to do was to
contact the office of the FBI with the e-mail attached to the site. They
would give me a credit card with the full amount and I could withdraw the
money in $50,000 at a time...is this a new scam? When I tried to contact
some of the agencies like the FBI by e-mail, the info would not send from
my computer. Is there a way to stop them from contacting me?

Comment: Can you please advise if I can confirm a person's real identity
or location by their e-mail address? Can you please provide me on who I
would contact for that if Snopes cannot provide the information. I have
an e-mail address and a name I am not sure is accurate. I simply want to
confirm the person is who they say they are on the e-mail.

Comment: I have a question that maybe you can help me with or have heard
from someone else. I know the swiffer wet jet has been floating around
for awhile but I have been having another situation with it. The last five
times that I have used the wetjet on my kitchen floor, it has set off my
gas/carbon monoxide detector. The detector is approximately 4 feet off
the floor which I had been cleaning but it sets it off while I am using
it. Is there some form of chemical in the liquid that would be doing
this?
