Urban Legend Alert: Starbucks, Carjacking

  1. Starbucks refused to give Marines in Iraq free products because the company does not support the war. Not true. Click here for the real story. Not only is this one false, it originally went out as an urban legend about Oscar Mayer and someone changed it to Starbucks!
  2. Carjackers will place a flyer on the rear window of your vehicle in an attempt to take your car. Not true. Click here for details.
