Dear Friends,

Please do not forward these "VIRUS WARNINGS" in personal maessaging. Most of them are hoaxes or outdated. You should hear warning bells when you read the words "please forward this to everyone you know." It is virus only in the sense that it fills up people's inboxes and thus is spam, plain and simple.

I realize people mean well, but for the past three years, I've gotten the Olympic Torch (hoax) virus warning at least 70 times, and now the outdated "Osama Bin Laden hanged" virus warning multiple times. This virus was real once but it's very outdated... it was around last two years ago.

Please check yourself with Snopes before sending these warnings to "everyone you know." 

 

Cissy
