    Hi guys,

    I just got a message from one of my BBM contacts that says there is an overusage of user names and all users must forward this to all their contacts in order to not have their account deleted in the next 48 hours. Apparently it can be re-activated later at the cost of 25 pounds.

    Is this a stupid hoax again?

    That's a regular spam message that re-appears every few months, you can safely ignore it and delete it, don't forward it on to your friends. Some people just don't have anything better to do with their time.

    Only one of the reasons I dropped BBM from my phones.
    You can get those messages for SMS, Facebook, twitter, etc. I remember once seeing one for Farm Town on facebook.

    If it's a genuine message from RIM it will be in red.

    it`ll only be in red if its a PIN to PIN message, BBM would just be normal i guess
