This chapter is the opposite of the previous one, which asserted that some of the Ripper letters were authentic. This chapter presented the alternative position that none of the Ripper correspondence was in fact authentic. The allegation that these items were hoaxes was documented. The claim that one or more journalists were responsible for the Ripper letters was explored in detail and the likely journalist suspects identified. The study by Inspector Moore of the October 14, 1896, alleged Ripper letter was considered.
