    Whatever you do, don't forward it. Instead, inform the person who sent it to you that it was a fake and suggest they tell the person that sent it to them, etc. Maybe people start to learn that things like this a scams created by useless losers. Oh, and by the way, Balsamic is a type of vinegar... Not the co-CEO of RIM.

    No, it's true! I had a friend whose account was deleted because she didn't forward it to everybody!!! It was an awful day for her because a defective Glad plug-in air freshener burned down her house, then her doctor called to say her deodorant had given her breast cancer!!!

    She is hoping to pay her bills with a big check that Bill Gates promised to send her if she forwarded a special tracking email to everyone she knows, but it hasn't arrived yet... or it might be buried in the avalanche of greeting cards she is collecting for the sick little boy who wants to get into the Guiness Book of World Records.

    (Seriously, when somebody sends me somthing like that, I usually sign them up for a few dozen FREE PR0N services.)

    The profile pic problem was very real. My friend and I discovered the same issue the other night. I checked the net and the problem has supposedly been resolved. They say to just update your profile pic again and everything should be ok. Oh BTW, the current version of BBM should be 5.0.1.41. Check the link below, for the BBM news.
