When someone, who earlier received a forwarded email about some "very important"--however, false--claim/cause, spreads misinformation received via email.
Leilani gets the following email:
*** START OF EMAIL ***
VERY IMPORTANT!!! FORWARD TO ALL YOUR CONTACTS!!!!
Federal BIll 602p
Guess the warnings were true. Federal Bill 602P 5-cents per E-mail sent. It figures! No more free E-mail! We knew this was coming!!
---rest of email cut out, cuz it's boring.---
*** END OF EMAIL ***
(At this point, Lani decides to tell her friends, completely unaware of the fact that she's been misinforwarded.)
Lani: "Hey guys! The postal service is going to start charging people five cents for emails."
Lani's friends: MISINFORWARDED!!!!
