Hi, I'm Stephanie from stephanieknaturals.com. And I'm going to tell you about the perfume hoax. The perfume hoax was an email that...or really, a...entirely an urban legend that went out through email and was passed around several years ago. It may still be going today -- I'm not really sure. But the gist of it is that someone goes around to people's cars and parking lots and ask them to sample perfumes. And when the person agrees and smells from the vial, they pass out because it's not really perfume -- it's some sort of ether and then they wake up robbed and in a hospital. But there are no documented cases of this actually happening, so it's just a hoax. So you're all right.
