Webmails: Setting the Record Straight

We've all gotten this kind of email.  With dire headlines, it purports to be of vital concern to women's safety and urges you to pass the information along to every woman you know.  A few do give useful  information. Most, however, offer very bad or dangerously incomplete advice. So bad, in fact, that I've devoted a whole section on my website to comment (good and bad) on these Webmails in an attempt to set the record straight.  And, please send me any Webmails YOU get - to solutions@fightsafe.com - so I can post my comments here.

Warning!  Be very cautious about what you read on the Internet and about believing dire Webmails you're urged to send to every woman you know.  Always corroborate the information first, before you pass it along.  Good resources for verifying these Webmails or urban legends, myths and anything else you suspect is a hoax:
