    Sorry guys Apparently it is true, cause its happened to certain people already, so I'm not taking any chances !!

    Lmfao! This ish is always going around and I didn't think someone on the CB forums would come close to believing it. OP, I'm will assume you're new to BB and have never seen these kinds of chain messages before and if so, I will let you know that this is complete BS. Its just someone who has nothing better to do with his/her free time starting chain messages like this and confuse the BBM users. If this were to be true, you would see it on the CB Blogs as well as other trusted tech websites. Once again ill say this is not true and never believe those chain messages as they are annoying and a waste of time to read.

    It is about as real as the email I got from Bill Gates telling me that he is testing a new email tracking program and if I forwarded it to every one of my contacts he'll send me $500

    Hah! I remember when I got that e-mail, it was well put-together though. Told me I'd have a flight arranged for me to Germany to bring the fortune to some well-known German bank and I get 40%...

    I represent a Nigerian bank and require your assistance in transferring money from the account of an English customer that passed away without heirs. Please send a return email if you can assist. I am willing to pay you a 25 percent commission.

    Michael Lazaridis Co-Chairman of the Board, President, Co-Chief Executive Officer
    James L. Balsillie Co-Chairman of the Board, Co-Chief Executive Officer

    I don't believe either have relatives in Nigeria.

    Even with correct spellings

    I didn't think it was true. I'm still a newbie if you call a three year owner a newbie. I got it from my wife who got it from some one else. Lok on the bright at least for all the new owners who come to the forum will know not take this message seriously.
    Also if anyone gets an email from the GMail team saying that you "MUST REPLY or your account will be deleted" is making its rounds again as well.
