Kecoa Berinkubasi di Mulut Manusia

isi hoax:
Yang sudah tercatat di sini ada 2 versi. Yaitu ketika seseorang menjilat amplop atau perangko yang tanpa disadarinya menempel telur kecoa, serta versi Taco Bell

Summary of eRumor:
There are several different versions of stories about people who accidentally got infested with roach eggs in their mouths or salivary glands, then experienced a disgusting mouthful of hatched roaches. Some versions say a person got infected with the eggs by eating contaminated meat from a fast food restaurant. Other versions say the eggs have been contracted through licking envelopes. The stories claim there have been reports on CNN and in the New York Times.

The Truth:
There have been no documented cases of this happening and it has been a common urban legend for quite some time. No news articles on the infestations have been found on CNN, in the New York Times, or any other legitimate news source. A real example of the story as it has been circulated:

Version #1
Subject: Licking Envelopes

If you lick your envelopes...

You won't anymore!!!

A woman was working in a post office in California. One day she licked the envelopes and postage stamps instead of using a sponge. That very day the lady cut her tongue on the envelope. A week later, she noticed an abnormal swelling of her tongue. She went to the doctor, and they found nothing wrong. Her tongue was not sore or anything. A couple of days later her tongue started to swell more, and it began to get really sore, so sore, that she could not eat. She went back to the hospital, and demanded something be done.
The doctor, took an x-ray of her tongue, and noticed a lump. He prepared her for minor surgery. When the doctor cut her tongue open, a live roach crawled out. There were roach eggs on the seal of the envelope. The egg was able to hatch inside of her tongue, because of her saliva. It was warm and moist...

This is a true story reported on CNN. (Supposedly)
Andy Hume wrote: Hey, I used to work in an envelope factory. You wouldn't believe the.....things that float around in those gum applicator trays. I haven't licked an envelope for years. "

Version #2


This girl was really in a hurry one day so she just stopped off at a Taco Bell and got a Chicken soft taco and ate it on the way home. That night she noticed her jaw was kind of tight and swollen. The next day it was a little worse so she went to her doctor. He said she just had an allergic reaction to something and gave her some cream to rub on her jaw to help. After a couple of days the swelling had just gotten worse and she could hardly move her jaw. She went back to her doctor to see what was wrong. Her doctor had no idea so he started to run some tests. They scrubbed out the inside of her mouth to get tissue samples and they also took some saliva samples. Well, they found out what was wrong.
Apparently her chicken soft taco had a pregnant roach in it, then she ate it­the eggs then some how got into her saliva glands and well, she was incubating them. They had to remove a couple of layers of her inner mouth to get all the eggs out. If they hadn’t figured out what was going on, the eggs would have hatched inside the lining of her mouth!!!!!!!!!!

She’s suing Taco Bell! Of course. If you need to find out more about this, it’s in the Nov. 19th NY Times. If you still want Taco Bell after this one, you’re really brave. PASS THE WORD AND BE VERY CAREFUL !

Sumpit Sekali Pakai

isi hoax:

Ini adalah kasus nyata, jika suatu saat anda mempunyai kesempatan, cobalah untuk merendam sumpit sekali pakai sekitar 3 - 5 menit di air panas.

Dan anda akan melihat deterjen pemutih larut di air panas dari sumpit sekali pakai. Jika anda dapat menyiapkan sumpit sendiri dari rumah, ini tidak saja ramah lingkungan (kayu) tapi juga untuk kebaikan anda sendiri.

Dalam suatu kampanye kesehatan di An Ning, Profesor Chew mengingatkan masyarakat untuk tidak menggunakan sumpit sekali pakai, mengingat sebagian besar sumpit sekali pakai dibuat dan diimpor dari China. Sebelum diproduksi, bahan dasarnya (kayu) telah tumbuh bersama kuman yang mengubah warna bahan (akibat jamur). Pada proses awalnya, bahan diberi cairan kimia untuk mengawetkannya. Setelah itu dicuci dengan pemutih (yang dipercaya ribuan kali di atas standar). Dan apa yang terjadi? Bahan-bahan kimia ini dapat menyebabkan kanker, karsinogen. Profesor Chew tidak lagi menggunakan sumpit sekali pakai sejak ia datang ke sebuah pabrik pembuatan sumpit sekali pakai saat 5 tahun yang lalu. Agar tidak lupa, ia membawa sumpit sendiri di tasnya yang bisa dipakai berulang-ulang.


This is a real case, if happen you had a chance, you can try soak disposable chopsticks (usually they gave you when you TA PAO something)for 3 to 5 minutes in hot water, and you will see bleach detergent dissolved in the hot water from the chopsticks.

If you can prepare yours own chopsticks at your office, it's not only environmental friendly and it's for your own good.

In a campaign promoting healthy care in An Ning, professor Chew reminds people not to use disposable chopsticks, as almost majority of them are made in and imported from china. Before the production, the raw materials itself already grown with germs that are in multiply colors(fungus), and the first process was put in chemical to preserve the materials then after that they are washed with bleach(which believes are to be thousands times over the standards). And guess what? These chemicals could cause cancer, Carcinogen. Professor Chew didn't use any disposable chopsticks anymore since she last visited a disposable chopsticks manufacturing plant years ago. Incase she forgotten to bring her own chopsticks, she always put one in her bag, since it can be reuse again and again.

Professor Chew said: if you were using disposable chopsticks in the past, and you insists going to use them for rest of your life. Don't come and ask me why you have cancer.

baca yang menyangkal hoax tersebut. Email yang beredar di internet sejak Januari 2005 dan diterjemahkan ke dalam bahasa Inggris pada bulan Maret berikutnya, sebelumnya belum ada "Profesor Chew" nya.

Dua Rembulan (Giant Mars)

isi hoax:
Notice to Astronomers:
Two moons on 27 Aug 2006
Planet Mars will be the brightest in the night sky starting August.
It will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye.
This will cultivate on Aug. 27 when Mars comes within 34.65M miles of earth.
Be sure to watch the sky on Aug. 27 12:30 am.
It will look like the earth has 2 moons.
The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287.

Share this with your friends as NO ONE ALIVE TODAY will ever see it again.

Berita Pengamat Benda Langit:
Dua Rembulan pada tgl 27 Agustus 2006

Planet Mars akan menjadi yang paling terang dilangit malam mulai bulan Agustus ini.
Dengan mata telanjang planet ini akan kelihatan hampir sebesar Rembulan.
Puncaknya adalah pada tgl 27 Agustus saat Mars berada 34,6 Juta mil dari bumi.
Jangan lewatkan untuk memperhatikan Langit pada tgl 27 Agustus jam 00:30 tengah malam.
Akan terlihat seakan akan bumi mempunyai 2 Rembulan.
Kesempatan berikutnya bagi Mars untuk berada sedekat ini adalah pada tahun 2287.

Beritahukan berita ini kepada teman teman yang lain

Karena tidak seorangpun yang hidup hari ini akan pernah menyaksikan kejadian yang serupa ini lagi.

Isi hoax mirip/sama dengan Hoax Giant Mars
Giant Mars Type Chain letter Description The following chain letter has distributed across the internet since 2003, and regularly resurfaces towards the end of the month of August.
Although it is true that the planet Mars passed extraordinarily close to Earth in August 2003 (the closest the planets had been to each other for some 60,000 years) this is obviously not something which happens every year.
Mars will pass close to Earth in October 2005, but it will not be as close as the August 2003 incident.
Sophos advises that there is no purpose in distributing the chain letter, and it should be deleted.
The text of the chain letter reads as follows:
The Red Planet is about to be spectacular! This month and next, Earth is catching up with Mars in an encounter that will culminate in the closest approach between the two planets in recorded history. The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287. Due to the way Jupiter's gravity tugs on Mars and perturbs its orbit, astronomers can only be certain that Mars has not come this close to Earth in the Last 5,000 years, but it may be as long as 60,000 years before it happens again.

The encounter will culminate on August 27th when Mars comes to within 34,649,589 miles of Earth and will be (next to the moon) the brightest object in the night sky. It will attain a magnitude of -2.9 and will appear 25.11 arc seconds wide. At a modest 75-power magnification Mars will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye. Mars will be easy to spot. At the beginning of August it will rise in the east at 10p.m. and reach its azimuth at about 3 a.m.

By the end of August when the two planets are closest, Mars will rise at nightfall and reach its highest point in the sky at 12:30 a.m. That's pretty convenient to see something that no human being has seen in recorded history. So, mark your calendar at the beginning of August to see

Mars grow progressively brighter and brighter throughout the month. Share this with your children and grandchildren. NO ONE ALIVE TODAY WILL EVER SEE THIS AGAIN
Important If you receive this or a similar message, please do not forward it to your friends and colleagues. Forwarding unsolicited chain letters wastes time and bandwidth.

Pencuri Ginjal Wisatawan di Australia

isi hoax:
Siapa saja yg perlu berkunjung keluar negeri hrp berhati-hati.

Berhati-hatilah bila berkunjung ke Australia. Cerita ini dikirim oleh seorang teman. Harap dibaca!!!, sangat menakutkan, jadi berhati-hatilah bila sedang diluar negeri. Ini adalah kisah yg sebenarnya, telah dibuktikan.
Nomor telepon Medical Centre diakhir email ini adalah asli. Seorang teman di Australia telah menelepon nomor ini untuk memastikannya, karena sebelumnya dia tidak percaya sama sekali.
Seorang pria JJ di malam minggu untuk bersenang-senang. Dia benar senang saat itu, minum beberapa gelas bir dan beberapa gadis yg dikenalnya sepertinya menyukainya. Mengundang nya untuk "berpesta" yg lainnya.
Pria ini langsung setuju dan pergi bersama gadis ini. Gadis ini membawanya ke apartement dan mereka minum-minum & bahkan memakai obat terlarang. (tdk diketahui jenis apa).
Hal berikutnya yg pria ini tahu, keesokannya dia bangun dgn telanjang di bathtub yg penuh es. Masih tetap merasakan pengaruh obat, dan tidak ada siapa-siapa lagi disitu. Pria ini melihat dadanya, dan disitu tertulis dgn lipstick "telepon 000 atau kamu akan mati". Dia melihat telepon
disampingnya dan menelepon. Berbicara kepada operator EMS (Emergency Medical Service)
situasi saat ini, dan tidak tau dimana berada sekarang. Obat apa yang telah di telannya dan kenapa dia harus menelepon.
Operator menyarankannya untuk keluar dari bathtub. Pria ini pun keluar, dan sepertinya tidak apa-apa. Jadi operator ini menyarankannya untuk memeriksa belakang tubuhnya. Ternyata di bagian pinggangnya terdapat luka menganga selebar 9 inchi!!!. Operator ini cepat-cepat menyarankannya untuk kembali berbaring di bathtub dan mengirim team medis kesana. Setelah diperiksa lebih lanjut, ginjal pria malang ini telah diambil secara diam-diam!!!.
Konon ginjal saat ini bernilai sekitar $10.000 satunya di pasaran gelap!. (Saya bahkan nggak yakin kalau bisa didapatkan). Beberapa dugaanpun dilontar- kan: "Pesta" yg kedua-kalinya merupakan kepura-puraan belaka.
Gadis yang melakukannya paling tidak adalah mahasiswi ke dokteran, tidak saja dilihat dari obat yang diberikannya. Saat ini, pria malang itu sedang berada di rumah-sakit gawat darurat, menunggu ginjal cadangan.
Universitas Sydney bekerja-sama dgn rumah-sakit Royal Prince Alfred sedang melakukan penyelidikan untuk mencocokkan korban dengan donor.
Saya ingin memperingatkan anda tentang sebuah organisasi kejahatan terbaru yg mengincar para pengusaha yg sering berpergian keluar-negeri sebagai korbannya.
Organisasi ini ter-rencana dgn baik, keuangan yg bagus, anggota professional yg terlatih dan sekarang sedang beroperasi di banyak kota besar di seluruhdunia dan saat ini sangat aktif di Sydney.
Modus operandinya dimulai ketika calon korban ini pergi minum di bar/lounge pada akhir minggu. Penjahat ini kemudian menghampiri ketika calon korban ini duduk sendiri dan menawarkan untuk membelikannya minum dan mengajaknya untuk "berpesta". Hal berikutnya yg korban ketahui adalah terbangun di bathtub hotel. Tubuhnya terendam dgn es hingga sebatas leher. Ada tulisan ditempel didinding, memerintahkan untuk tidak bergerak dan
menelepon 000 (EMS) dg n telepon yang telah disediakan.
Setelah korban ini menelepon, operator EMS yang telah curiga dengan kondisi ini biasanya menyarankan agar memeriksa bagian belakang tubuh nya, apa terdapat semacam tabung/luka yg menonjol keluar dari bagian pinggangnya. Korban menemukannya dan menjawab "YA".
Operator ini kemudian memerintahkannya untuk tidak banyak bergerak dan mengirim tim medis kesana. Ginjalnya telah dicuri!!!.
Kisah ini bukanlah sampah email atau cerita novel science fiction. Benar-benar terjadi!!. Telah terdokumentasi dan telah dikonfirmasi kebenarannya. Jadi,bila anda hendak berpergian keluar-negeri atau seseorangyang anda tau hendak berpergian, harap berhati-hati.
Menyedihkan memang tapi benar terjadi !. Suami teman saya adalah EMT (Emergency Medical Team) dan telah menerima kabar ttg kejahatan ini. Jangan menganggap remeh kejahatan ini. Dapat terjadi terhadap Pria maupun Wanita. Anak perempuan teman saya yg bekerja di Pemadam Kebakaran telah mengalami kejadian ini.
Hanya orang/dokter yg terlatihlah yg melakukan k ejahatan ini. (yg sering terjadi di daerah yg padat penduduknya). Sebagai tambahan, pihak militer telah mendapatkan laporan mengenai hal ini.
Cerita ini benar-benar menguncangkan saya!. Sangat ingin agar setiap orang dapat mengetahui hal ini dan harap forward mail ini kepada siapa saja sebisa mungkin.

Some resourceful individual has been kind enough to give an Australian flavor to this classic old hoax which is still circulating. This hoax email has been making its way around the inboxs of the world since 1997.

Sydneysiders can relax, as there is in fact NO sinister gang of medically trained criminals out and about stealing kidneys.

This tale has been around in one form or another for many years, but email and the Internet has given it new life and the perfect vehicle for propagation. And what a great little tale it is! A mini-horror story right there in your email in-box! It's not surprising that this email hoax has proved so resilient and enduring. It's the sort of tale that cries "share me!",....hence a piece of junk mail, that should ideally be cast into binary oblivion once and for all, keeps on keeping on.

The National Kidney foundation has an article on its website about this hoax.

It was brought to my attention yesterday that a virus is in circulation via email. I looked for it and to my surprise I found it on mine. ..
please follow the directions and remove it from yours TODAY!!!!!!!

I do not know how long it has been on my computer, but no Virus software can detect it. It will become active on June 1, 2001. It might be too late by then. It wipes out all files and folders on the hard drive. This virus travels thru E-mail and migrates to the 'C:\windows\command'
folder. To find it and get rid of it off of your computer, do the following.

Go to the "START" button.
Go to "FIND" or "SEARCH"
Make sure the find box is searching the "C:" drive.
Begin search.
If it finds it, highlight it.
Go to 'File' and delete it.
Close the find Dialog box
Open the Recycle Bin
Find the file and delete it from the Recycle bin
You should be safe.

The bad part is: You need to contact everyone you have sent ANY E-mail to in the past few months. Many major companies have found this virus on their computers. Please help your friends !!!!!!!!


Have a great day"
