False

#### Work Step by Step

RECALL: For any real number $a$, $|a| \ge 0$ This means that the absolute value of any number is greater than or equal to 0. Thus, for any real number $x$, $|x+1| \ge 0$. Therefore, $|x+1| \not \lt -3$ The given inequality has no solution. Thus, the given statement is false.
