I just got about 10 text messages that said the same thing, it said... "Amber Alert-A 3 yr old girl was taken from P.B. by a man driving a new silver truck from N.J. plate #72B381." Has anyone else gotten this text message or has anyone heard this news? I am just curious if it is true or not??

I got several texts about the same thing! I don't know if it's true or not, but just in case it is, I went ahead and passed it along.

I'm sure that junks not true. My phone gets 'em to but only if they're real. And it's not up on KFVS12 either.

I bet if you forward it to ten people though then your phone will ring tonite and it will be your true love.:)

Seriously though here's the link to prove it's BS. People that start and forward that shit may mean well but mostly they are dumbasses for believing it.

The text I just got didn't say where she was taken from or that the truck was from NJ. What you just said though makes so much sense, gosh that could be true. We will never know but I wouldn't put it past the phone companys. That would be pathetic to use a horrid incident such as this for personal gain! They know everyone will forward it to all their friends and families.

Yes, that does make sense. I never thought about that. I was just wondering because I have two kids!

there was a 3yr old girl recently abducted from passaic, NJ, but has been found and reunited with her family already. i think someone just changed the details around and concucted a hoax. i hope someone out there, whoever started these jokes would read a story called, "the boy who cried wolf", there are concerned citizens out there that would take time out of their busy day to drive around and look for a truck that doesnt exist!

i got the same text...and sent it to everyone in my phone book, and a friend asked me details that i didn't have the answer to...so i googled the liscense number and it is a hoax that started in Idaho and has travedled aross the nation. sooo sad...but true. I felt like such an idiot for passing it along! So i sent an apology text to everyone i sent it to...telling them it was a hoax, and to always verify alerts before passing them along.:( i too signed up on amber alerts.com to get the alerts straight from them! I can't beleive someone would start a fake amber alert...so sad!
