I find this very interesting: In a story about Camera Phone Identity Theft, TheDenverChannel.com actually quotes Snopes.com! For those of you who don’t know, snopes.com is a great reference website which catalogs internet hoaxes and urban legends. Snopes mean feature is a search function: enter a search term and snopes tells you whether or not what you searched for is true.
I’ve used this tool quite often to see if email horror stories are hoaxes or not. For the most part, they are hoaxes. But every now and then I run across something that is either confirmed true, or is a possibility. Apparently, someone at theDenverChannel.com decided to do the same thing for their article.
