Hoaxes are non malicious viruses. They live on deceiving human's perception by conveying false claims as truth. Throughout history, hoaxes have actually able to influence a lot of people to the extent of tarnishing the victim's image and credibility. Moreover, wrong and misleading information has always been a distortion to a human's growth. Some hoaxes were created in a way that they can even obtain personal data by convincing the victims that those data were required for official purposes. Hoaxes are different from spams in a way that they masquerade themselves through the address of those related either directly or indirectly to us. Most of the time, they appear as a forwarded message and sometimes from legit companies such as PayPal. Having known the threat that this non malicious brought, it is important for us to address this problem seriously by providing an automatic hoax detection system as the solution to this matter. Consciousness and Awareness are definitely the first step to be taken for this matter
