    I received a message from one of my BBM buddies with a message that read:

    i'm wondering the same. i'm not really worried because i have my contacts saved to an email account. So if i do, I'll just delete the bbm, and download again.

    It is spam.

    Ignore it and let it die.

    Thanks for stepping in. Another thread on this already popped up and I could see the forums getting clogged with this

    There is nothing more annoying than a message in the middle of the night, and you think it might be an emergency, and it's some stupid "Hai, I'm bord, sum1 talk??/?" broadcast.

    Delete, ignore all future contact, kick their puppy.

    Do you normally enter links from spam into your browser? NOT a good practice.

    Best bet, stop and think why you haven't heard anything about this, instead of a knee **** reaction to do as instructed. Read the forums to see if others have experienced it. Check the front page here to see if we have blogged about it, etc.
