    Looks like spam to me, there are massive numbers of grammar mistakes, and which president types in caps... anyway, here's a message I found on my offline messages...

    Quote:
    This is Yahoo President Jay Russell , i am sorry to announce that Yahoo has reached its maximum number of accounts two million. if you would like to keep your account for free send this to everyone on your list . This way we can know which accounts are being used and which accounts we can delete .Send this within 8 days and your account will remain free, Once again i am sincerely sorry that i have to do this. Please start sending , Jay Russell , Yahoo Management Renee : Nick : WHOEVER DOESNT SEND THIS MESSAGE YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DEACTIVATED AND IT WILL COST $10.00A MONTH TO USE IT ! TO SEND TO EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST RIGHT CLICK ON YOUR GROUP
    Lame, but funny to me (although it did fool me for a few seconds before I read it carefully).

    Oh well, I thought I'd post it here so we can all have a laugh :-)

    EDIT: Just to doubly prove this wrong, a friend of mine created a new account with no problems. So, obvious fake. Enjoy

      There are some e-mails that have like little ads at the bottom, and the person that created it gets about 2 for every time someone opens that e-mail. SO they try to get them forwarded as much as possible which whatever ways they can think of.

      Sometimes people are just complete annoying idiots wh oge their fun from acts of idiocy '

            I guess the reason I get porn spim on AIM is because I actually have AOL and I use the chat rooms. Every time I go into a chat room I instantly get spim...

              Chain messages are more annoying over IM than e-mail IMO... >>;;

              And I go into the chatrooms occasionally, but it's nothing really interesting.

                And you act like you hate those porn e-mails.. give up the act

                You know what I hate? When my friends sign me up to stuff.. I absaloutly hate that!. I finally get a new clean e-mail, and a week later I'm getting 72 porn e-mails a day... It's not even funny anymore.

                  It's the E-mail that's more annoying!! x_X Everyday, I check my mail and when a pop up mail thing comes up, I think it's from a friend. Then I find out it's Spam! x_X I do get a lot of chain messages in YIM, now. But not as many as I used to...

                    Sorry for the interuption, but Yahoo is closing the system down because too many booters are taking up all the names, we only have 57 names left, if you would like to close your account, don't send this mesage, if you want to keep your account, send this message to everyone on your list. This is no joke, you'll be sorry you didn't send it. Thanks, Director of Yahoo, Tim Buiski, WHOEVER DOESN'T SEND THIS MESSAGE YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DEACTIVATED AND IT WILL COST $10.00 A month to USE IT TO SEND 2 EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST RIGHT CLICK ON YOUR GROUP THEN CLICK SEN Yahoo!

                        o.o; I don't get porn e-mails, or IMs, or anything of the sort. I don't know what you people do in your spare time, but I like to stay out of that stuff. ;p (Rofl, I'm just kidding. XD)

                        Mrr... I get a lot of "OMGOMGOMGSPAZZOMG HOTMAIL IS GOING TUO DIE BCUZ PEOPLE R USING 2 MANY ACOUNTS OMG! SEND THIS 2 50 BILION PEOPLE OR ULL DIE! OMG!"-type e-mails. From my friends. Gah. I TELL most of these people that I hate these things and we discuss how stupid they are since no one believes them and they don't even look official. And then the next day I get a forwarded message telling me stuff like that. o.o It's... just pathetic how gullible people are and how useless these messages are. ; *would NOT want to meet the type of person who starts these* XD

                          Rofl, I think I know what you're talking about. ; I used to get that too. I actually saw it for the first time on a forum and it scared the heck out of me because I was like... 12 and I didn't know what to expect ._.

                          I've found I don't get as many chain letters anymore, too. o.o; Although I do remember getting this hilarious chain letter that made fun of other chain letters. That's the only one I've ever sent on, not counting those fun survey ones. XD;

                            AIM spimmers are getting better... they send you a "hi" then you reply, and it hits you with the porn message *then*.

                                At least you can usually tell spimmers - they have names like "cute", "hot", "webcam", "xxx" etc. XD
