Cassandra Huet Hoax

Even thought it’s been a while since I’ve received a chain letter hoax, time has in no way reduced my frustration in receiving them.

Sfter receiving the following email I did a Google search on the name Cassandra Huet which turned up a post on Hoaxbuster.com that discredited the email as a hoax. My go to site for hoax debunking,  Snopes had a similar article discounting the email but the young girl’s name was Ashley Flores.

Ma fille de 16 ans, Cassandra Huet est disparue depuis maintenant 2 semaines.
Si tout le monde fait suivre ce courriel, quelqu’un reconnaîtra peut-être cet enfant.
C’est de cette façon qu’une fille disparue a été retrouvée, en faisant circuler sa photo à la télévision.
L’internet circule dans le monde entier alors, SVP faites suivre ce courriel à tous vos contacts.
Il n’est pas encore trop tard. SVP aidez-nous. Si quelqu’un sait quoi que ce soit, svp entrez en communication avec moi à: Famillehuet@yahoo.com
J’inclus une photo d’elle. Ca ne prend que 2 secondes pour faire suivre ce message.
Si c’était votre enfant, vous voudriez toute l’aide possible !

If you receive email chain letters please preform some due diligence and do a Google search on the name in the email or even the entire text. A few seconds of your time can kill a useless chain letter in it’s tracks.

For resources and tips to protect and find children check out the Amber Alert, the Missing Children Society of Canada & the RCMP sites. It would be a much better use of your time than forwarding emails.
