Help Burned Baby, Alexandra (Half Truth)

The name of the baby in the picture is actually Ola Kuczma and not Alexandra as claimed in the email. The incident did happen in 2005, however, forwarding the email will do nothing to help little Ola or her family.

You can read the full story on Hoax-Slayer.

================================================================================



Dear All,

Alexandra came out of a fire alive, but now has to fight for her life
and a normal future. She is 14 months old and she has burnt skin all
over her body, damage facial bones (as a result of very high
temperature). She does not have half of her face. She is in hospital
in Krakow - Poland and one of the best specialist is looking after
her. However she still has to go through many surgeries and then long
rehab. Unfortunately her parents do not have any more money.
Therefore we are asking for your help. For each forwarded email her
parents will get 3 cents. Please help them and forward that email to
as many people as you can!

It is still circulating and there is an affiliate link attached to the photo. Somebody is either collecting information about user computers or making some sort of "click" money.

Thanks for sharing this Autumn. I found a write up about how it can be done at the following link:

It can only be linked if the codes are embedded in the picture. I think that it is possible to link it if the picture came as a .jpg file.
