CINCINNATI - The news isn't yet two days old, but email hoaxes and scams related to Osama bin Laden's death are making their way around the Internet Tuesday.
The biggest hoax among them is the photo to the left. It claims to show bin Laden's dead body, but it is in fact a fake.
The website Scam Sniper shows how it was Photoshopped from the original image on the right. We have blurred the photo due to its graphic nature.
Scam Sniper says any photo of bin Laden's corpse found on Facebook should be considered fake.
The U.S. has not yet released any photos or video of bin Laden's body, but ABC News has reported it is likely they will release a photo of the deceased terrorist as well as video of the former al-Qaida leader's burial.
Many emails with links to video of bin Laden's death have also been going around that could contain viruses. If you see any email with links referencing this, delete it immediately.
