I'd say a lot of things online are a hoax. That it's in English is a dead giveaway. Someone probably believed it was real though.

Dang, you are good. I always miss the details. Think that makes me a target.

It's being in English let me know right away, i didn't even look at the stamp. People have forwarded stuff to me that seemed fishy and i've usually just ignored it or checked it out on truthorfiction.net or snopes.com

Clever at spotting a fake. I've spotted a few online, however, as of this writing I can't really tell you what they were.

I hadn't seen this one, Stephen. Thanks for sharing. I wonder how many folks have bought it. Take care.

The very first thing which occurred to me is why was this thing in English? I didn't notice the stamp-the English thing got me first.

Same here - I immediately wondered why the letter would be in English. Did not notice the stamp. Why do people on Facebook think a quote is true when a picture of Abraham Lincoln is next to it?

Next thing you're going to tell me is that there is no beachfront property in Arizona. Grow up mister :)

A great teaching moment about the danger of believing everything you see on the internet. Caveat emptor!

I picked up on the stamp, but failed to recognize the language the letter was written in English.

Interesting... with life so full of examples, why do people feel a need to create hoaxes?

Haha! Good one! I got immediately that the letter should have been in German, however I missed the bit of stamp in the corner. Not a very clever fraud, but helpful to make people keep trying nonetheless. :)

Zounds, Watson, the game is afoot! I got both clues. Together we shall conquer the Internet and the World!

I didn't get either one, but let the record show that a bar with Google+ and Twitter and those kind of symbols were right over that area, blocking it from me. The English? Right over my head.

In English was what I caught! So silly these folks- thanks for the interesting post! Cheers and have a lovely day!
