Ever wondered if anyone makes the money promised in those work-at-home advertisements? Or if each forwarded e-mail will really mean a donation of 10 cents from Microsoft to an orphan's organ-transplant operation? The answer is no. These stories are urban legends, e-mail rumors and scams. They are but a few of what we like to call financial fiction. The following are some of the most popular and most creative examples waiting in in-boxes.

I remember getting one of those Nigerian Letters.  I had just gotten my computer and it was one of the
     first 'unknowns' I learned to be aware of.  I think the scams like that are not nice at all.
