Rumor

A rumor (alt. rumour) is a piece of information that is passed-on without substantiating evidence. Rumors can range from simple gossip to advanced propaganda techniques.

The classic mode of rumor transmission is person-to-person, as in gossip. With the advent of the internet many rumors have been transmitted via email, as is the case with various hoaxes and urban legends.
