Deborah Fink not responsible for mobilisation email shock!

I got an email yesterday purporting to be from Deborah Fink and asking why I was doing nothing about a ludicrous article in the National Post (whatever it is and wherever it is based. My guess is Canada but I don't know).

This is what the email said:
Why aren't you joining us in refuting these canards?
I asked Deborah what she was talking about and she wrote to me saying that she hadn't sent the email at all and that it was a forgery.

Scrolling down the email I saw this:
You received this email because your friend debbie fink thought you would be interested in the article linked above.

So I am guessing someone simply input Deborah's details into one of those "email a friend" thingies complete with message bar. I have been on line since 1999 and blogging since 2004 and this is the first time I have received such a hoax though I did climb the walls recently worrying about a friend in Edenbridge asking me to send him a grand to Nigeria.

Anyway, if you get a nasty email from Deborah Fink, chances are it's a hoax. On the other hand, you might want to get out there and do something for the Palestinian cause so you'll know the email is nonsense whether Debbie sent it or not!
