From another site, extract:

Who would do such a thing? The same sort of people who have perpetuated some of the top urban legends such as the claim that Mr. Rogers had a former secret career as a trained assassin, and that ATM users can quickly contact police in the event of an attempted robbery by entering their PIN in reverse. The cyberspace is full of lies disguised as inspiration, political alerts, health warnings, and prayers. Many come complete with enhanced photographs. The ones that are especially ironic are those that state, “Even Snopes has confirmed this,” along with a link to Snopes that attributes it as false. People who forward such emails, obviously do not check the link themselves. (source: To Forward or Not to Forward? By Patti Maguire Armstrong

Sachin Tendulkar's shell house -- Just Not True

I just received a forwarded, forward, with a catchy header: Fragile Luxury.

Googled, and found:
  • Sachin Tendulkar's New House - Not True - its SPAM says
  • Hoax Confirmation: Tendulkar's 'shell house' designs a net hoax: India Today.
  • Plus, shell House Sachin Hoax here.
  • Noel, a Blogger (Cricket God - Sachin Tendulkar, God Of Cricket) states: "A new weird shell house designed for God Of Cricket Sachin Tendulkar by world famous Mexican architect Javier Senosiain."
  • See more here, on this shell house: Organic Architecture of Javier Senosiain.
  • Whereas, Sachin's fans keep circulating this nonstop;
  •, as well as, Sachin Tendulkar's Official website - don't talk about it.
  • And, this is interesting: "Sachin denies having an account on Twitter: Don't follow his fake twitter account."
