    Hello everyone,

    I'm not messaging very often but just to reassure many users... there is a spam message going on on BBM... Please DISREGARD this
    This is really a spam and it is not from RIM

    Which is as follow:


    Messages are not sending sometimes. Our Systems has failed to have fixed this problem for some Blackberry Pins. Please Broadcast this to all of your contacts so they know about this technical fault. If you don't Broadcast this message we will reset your Blackberry Services as we might think that you have this Blackberry BBM Message problem. Any more Faults... Call ethier your sim provider or Blackberry Customer Services on 09042562206
    Sftbc but the number works. BBM is shutting down at 12:00. 0clock tonight if you don't broadcast this you'll loose your contact. 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.

    As stated, this has shown up off and on for months. Thanks for the heads up, however next time do a forum search and add to previous threads instead of creating new ones.
