The Bill Gates Hoax
I’ve seen this hoax show up more than any other hoax on this list and it cracks me up every time. I don’t know why anyone would think that forwarding an e-mail or sharing a Facebook status will get Bill Gates to give you a dump truck of money. The thing about this one is that Bill Gates really could give someone a dump truck full of money if he wanted to. Unfortunately, he’s not the fun kind of billionaire.
He spends all of his money on feeding people and curing dumb diseases.
