    No. But urbane legends do. Thats generally because they are more sophisticated.

    Most of them do have some truth to them, but are often embellished over time.

    There is a way to become “shrewd” and identify hoaxes, urban legends, swindles, and other misinformation that may appear on our computer screens. First, ask yourself: ‘Is the item from an official, reliable website or from a blog or an unknown source; Has it already been exposed on anti-hoax websites;’ Then, use “good sense.” (Prov. 7:7) If a news item seems unbelievable, it probably is. Furthermore, when the information discredits others, think about who would benefit from such news being spread and whether the source has ulterior motives in spreading it.

    The true stories are true and the untrue stories are untrue

    Some might have an ounce of truth in them, but these things have a slight tendancy to grow and get exaggerated...
