    So I just got this bbm from my brother and was wondering if anyone knew anything about it. It might just a fake. Not sure.

    " ?ITS ON THE NEWS SO ITS TRUE!
    I have sent the previous BC because I received this BC and wanted to find out about it first before I sent it out. Message from Jim Balsamic (CEO of RIM Blackberry) we have had an over usage of user names on Blackberry Messenger. We are requesting all users to forward this message to their entire contact list. If you do not forward this message, we will take it as your account is invalid and it will be deleted within the next 48 hours. Please DO NOT ignore this message or blackberry will no longer recognise your pin. If you wish to re-activate your account after it has been deleted, a charge of 25.00 will be added to your monthly bill. We are also aware of the issue involving the pictures updates not showing. We are working diligently at fixing this problem and it will be up and running as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation.

    Search is your friend. Friends don't let friends help pass hoaxes on. If it sounds ridiculous and scary, just press delete, it is a hoax. Think about it people. Too many usernames? What the heck? They're one per BB customer. Ponder that everyone please?
