I don't want to scare people but I feel that all of you
should be aware of what is happening.
I have just gotten a call from a good source that works for the CDC
(Center for Disease Control).
He has had 7 deadly cases caused by Anthrax.
All 7 people have received the same envelope.
The envelope has a United States flag on it and has writing on it that
says something along the lines of "Help the families"

If at any point you receive such an envelope DO NOT OPEN IT!
Call the CDC immediately.
