Hey, I know that whenever I have a broken phone (or television, car, water buffalo, whatever), my first thought is to contact an urban legends website.

Some people might take the phone back to where it was purchased. But that's exactly what they expect you to do.

Never be predictable!

Ta ra 'wan,

Blow Your Top

Comment: In a big panic, I called the # provided in a friend's email,
regarding the "Do not call" registry. NOW, I think that my phone is
calling numbers that I frequently call, by itself!!!
Would you know how I can correct my dumb mistake!! I also called the
number for my husband's phone and he gets calls from my phone and my
daughter's phone that were not dialed by any of us!! I did not call the
fake "do not call" number on my Daughter's phone, Thank God.
Can you advise me about what to do?

Comment: Hi~ I was looking at a furniture refinishing site, which led me to a link
(among many others I looked at) for spray lacquer. The first time I
tried to open that site, it hung up at about 40% downloaded; the second
time succeeded. First the picture of the spray lacquer came
up, then the screen went to black with grey lettering, with the caption
"eHacked by El Mohamed" containing a short tirade against the Jews.
Shortly thereafter some catchy music came on.

I copied and pasted the hacked screen. Would you like me to send it to you
for checking out?

Comment: FYI: I have friend who regularly receives false political data
from someone known as Wilma XXXXXXXX, e-mail address is:
XXXXXX@XXXXX.com The most recent article is the one on President
Obama's brother-in-law, with some grain of truth and in context, is
absolutely false. My question is;
Can anyone be allowed to constantly publish false data, and send to
numerous contacts as Truth_with no accountability?
Whether Wilma XXXXXXX is the perpetrator, or only enjoys all
negative data on the present administration, I do not know.

Comment: I have been treated very rudely by an online
company when trying to cancel a domain name. I could not get anyone who
spoke English and out of the 6 folks that I "tried" to talk to, all but 2
of them hung up on me. I was unable to resolve my problem and when I
contacted my credit card company to dispute the charges, they immediately
refunded my money due to the rude treatment that I received. I am wanting
to report this company to the Better Business Bureau and to write a letter
to the CEO of the company to inform him of how his
customers are being mistreated. My problem is that I cannot find a
physical address for the company. Can you please assist me in this matter
to ensure that others do not have to endure the rudeness of those paid to give
customer service?

Mexico

Comment: I received a very disturbing email regarding an American flag
flying upside down while a Mexican flag was on top. Logically, I came to
this sight because it stated it was from Snopes. There is a problem though
with how the email was sent. They purposely left out the interchanges
between the school and the superintendent condoning this action. The email
had also suggested that Montebello High School is responsible, but in fact
was NOT. I don't know what sad pathetic political tactic this is and I for
one do not condone these students, but information is being
misrepresented. This political ploy, to insight frustrations and
malcontent to the general public, is NOT what we need. Stories like this,
if told, should be represented with FACTS. This email being circulated is
actually negatively charged with attacks on Montebello. I hope this
problem can be remedied.

Ya, but where's the indignation in that? Think of the children, man!

But, of course. I think he'd look smashing if worn as a wrap-around.

Comment:

XXXX XXXXXXX owner of XXXXXXXXXX Properties in south Texas. Has
properties in Ingleside, Rockport, Corpus Christi and a gym in Portland
Tx. He was recently audited and know that he is doing business on a cash
basis, ie. his rental properties are not owned by him. He seems to have
two sets of books the cash and the ones irs sees. At any given time you
can stop him driving a small white van and always has on or about 10 to 15
thousand dollars on him at all times. He is a slumlord, who needs to be
brought to justice! Tv channels have been notified about this. Just
thought maybe you would be interested in this info also.

Thank You for your time and consideration on this matter. Please
understand that if you will check his records and do a full audit, you
will find out the truth! His assistant Kim covers for him and knows how to
hide the money on the records.

Kenya

Comment: Can you or anyone please put a stop to the constant bickering
over the validity of President Obama's birth place once and for all!

This should be very simple, show the certificate, have it validated by a
state official (Gov. Lingle) and tell the republicans to shut up finally!

You can't believe the nasty comments coming from the Republican side (to
me) through e-mail etc. where they vehimanently belive him to be born in
Kenya and completely disavow any documentation to the contrary. How can
they be so vicious and simply choose not believe the truth when it
presents itself. This is the bigger problem of society - mass ignorance
and disinformation.

Comment: Dear Snopes
This rumor concerns the size of frozen breaded fish portions. The fast
food restaurants serve very large bun sized portions, but in the grocery
stores there are only small sized portions available. Is the fast food
industry behind this? Do they dictate to the fish processors what size
portions they may sell to grocers? I have heard this many years ago, but
cannot find a source for it. Can you help?
