Discard free samples

Could this be true? An email that is going around indicated
that seven women in KL had died after inhaling a free perfume
sample that was mailed to them. The product was poisonous.

The advice: If you receive free samples in the mail such as
lotions, perfumes, diapers, etc., throw them away. It is
feared that this might be another terrorist act. There is
no publicity on this so as not to create panic or give the
terrorists new ideas.


  1. Hmm... sounds like an "urban legend" to me. Doubtful if it is "terrorists" as those kinds of acts are usually directed at highly public targets, not one individual at a time.

    Tossing junk mail without opening it is a good idea anyway.

  2. Pandabonium, I hope you are right. Good advice about tossing junk mail.

  3. This is sick!
    But fortunately; probably not true.

  4. fh20, latest I heard, this in fact happened and the seven women really died.

  5. This is terrible!
    Sure or Not? Where did you read this?

  6. Got-lah, very reliable source. Just be on the alert.
