Some of you may have recieved an email that looked something like this:

hey it is Andy and john the directors of MSN, sorry for the interruption
but
msn is closing down. this is because too many inconsiderate people are
taking up all the name (eg making up lots of different accounts for just
one
person), we only have 578 names left. If you would like to close your
account, DO NOT SEND THIS MESSAGE ON. If you would like to keep your
account, then SEND THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST. This is
no
joke, we will be shutting down the servers. Send it on, thanks. WHO EVER
DOES NOT SEND THIS MESSEAGE, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE CLOSED AND YOU WILL COST
10.00 A MONTH TO USE. >SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST. NOW YOU
KNOW WHAT TO DO. PLEASE DO NOT FORWARD THIS or REPLAY. COPY THE WHOLE
EMAIL.
GO BACK TO YOUR INBOX AND CLICK ON NEW. AND PASTE THANK YOU FOR YOUR
ATTENTION


As you may have noticed, my email came from Souledge (how'd he get my email? Confused). Already, the credibility plummets.

Fear not good people. I have determined that this is a hoax. Here's why:
(mostly copied from a reply to Souledge...)
[quote= "Me"]
I checked the MSN messenger site, and it said NOTHING of the sort. This must be some kind of prank chain letter thingy. They would have to have something up on the website if this was true. Plus, you can have an infinite number of names, since there's no character limit on email addresses. Also, sending an email to all these people wouldn't tell the MSN ppl anything! They can't moniter emails! AND it says that teh price would be 10 francs, but MSN is a part of Microsoft, which is based in the US so they would have used DOLLARS. If it was real, they would have been more formal than, "Hey guys," and they would have sent this email themselves. It wouldn't randomly appear in my mailbox in an email from you. [/quote]

So fear not, and don't bother passing on this email thing if you get it. In fact, let whoever sent it to you know it's a hoax.

EDIT: This seems worthy of a sticky to me. Wink

Nothing to worry about. Just some stupid people with no life that can think they can use their malfunctioning brain to scare smart people who can see through something like that in an instant.

Really? I've never heard about it before. I figured that SoulEdge made it up or something...It could have fooled people though, if they didn't stop to think about it. Hence the topic. <.<
