    I want to begin the documentation of a potentially very large problem with Blackberry Messenger. Problem description: The person BBM says sent you a message might not be from the person BBM says it's from. Sometimes it will pick a seemingly random person, and mix them into your conversation like they're the same person you were just talking to. Sort of like Russian Roulette.

    First and foremost, do NOT trust that the person you think you're talking to is really who you ARE talking to. Unless you see them face to face, or hear their voice on the phone... you may not be talking to that person.

    Let me illustrate a recent, very real & very scary situation. Personally I didn't think this type of software problem was possible... apparently I was incorrect. Let my experience be your heads-up.

    Blackberry 9000, OS v.4.6.0.297 Blackberry Messenger 5.0.0.57

    I've never encountered anything like this. Might help if you noted the exact version of BBM you're using. Don't think the OS has anything to do with it (Even if it is ancient).

    You could lose your job over this. You could lose your wife. You could lose your entire life over this - if you're not careful. This is a very serious problem.

    I think I'm going to switch to GTalk for serious conversations from now on.

    Yikes. i haven't heard of this problem. If anyone see threads with the same issues please post them here so we can get them all gathered in one place.

    If this is really happening i'd stop using my BBM.

    Is this only happening to folks using beta OSs and BBM?

    I don't think anyone really knows what exactly is going on with this. It's purely speculation at this point.

    But my guess is that there's going to be a few jobs lost, and people getting kicked out of their house, etc. before there's a solution.
