Forgive me. That info was bad. A helpful FBvian corrects it:
I got that email too… but check out the link at the bottom, that leads you to the TX Dept of State Health website that has the following info:
Bogus food stamps/gasoline e-mail
An e-mail is being circulated that indicates that food stamps and free gasoline for Hurricane Katrina evacuees are available from or through the “Texas Department of Health and Human Services.”
The e-mail is bogus.
However, hurricane evacuees wanting accurate information about food stamps availability may call the 2-1-1 information service or 1-888-312-4567.
Some versions of the e-mail include the Web address for the former Texas Department of Health, now part of the Texas Department of State Health Services.
The food stamps program is administered by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.
Neither agency is supplying free gasoline.
