Emails that cause unnecessary panic and fear among people have become more common these days. Somehow, scammers seem to enjoy the fact that people are threatened by their emails.
One such email is the Acid Rain alert email that keeps going rounds. The mail says that it is a warning about acid rain that may occur anytime between particular dates. The warning is said to be from NASA and email receivers are asked to stay at home during that time and also forward the mail to as many friends as possible. The mail attributes the dark circles in the moon to be an indicator of acid rain.
Such mail is a complete hoax. NASA spokespersons have confirmed that the dark circles on the moon have nothing to do with acid rain. Whatever it is, never forward such emails and create panic among your friends.
