Devil Beware urban myths which catch the unwary in a web of lies

The rumours were kickstarted again by reports that the company's president had appeared on a television chatshow and revealed that P&G donated a proportion of its profits to the Church of Satan (he didn't). This is a quoted company on the New York Stock Exchange.

There are plenty of other corporate myths. With grateful thanks to Snopes.com, here are some:
