Virus/Hoak... NOT!

(1) Pen Pal Greeting or Join the Crew

If you receive an email titled "Join the Crew", DO NOT OPEN IT! IT WILL ERASE YOUR HARD DRIVE. Delete without opening.

If you receive an email titled "Pen pal Greetings!," DELETE WITHOUT OPENING. This virus erases the hard drive, replicates itself, and sends itself to every address it can find on your system, to include everyone in your address book and everyone that you have received mail from that might still be in your IN box or TRASH!

If you receive and email titled "Returned or Unable to Deliver,"

DELETE WITHOUT OPENING. This virus attaches itself to the software that controls your components, rendering them useless. The person spreading this virus has chosen this title because we often receive returned mail. Don't be fooled! Even if it IS returned mail, the information in the message is not that useful anyway.

Forward this information to the people on your address list. Remember, if your friend gets the virus, he could inadvertently send it to YOU if you are in their address book, in box, out box, or trash!

Good Luck,

or a shorter version:

WARNING!!! If you receive an e-mail titled "JOIN THE CREW" DO NOT open it!

It will erase EVERYTHING on your hard drive! Send this letter out to as many people you can....this is a new virus and not many people know about it! This message was received this morning from IBM, and the Army National Guard. Please share it with anyone that might access the Internet.
