AOL Virus-Forward an email to protect yourself from it-Fiction!

Forward An Email to Be Exempt From a Big Virus Scheduled to Hit AOL-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:
You are asked to forward this email to others.  It warns that an “elite group of hackers” is going to create a huge virus that it will knock you off AOL forever.  If you want to escape the mayhem, forward the email to as many people as you can.
The Truth:
This disjointed email is a hoax.  There is no such reported threat and anyone who tried would not be able to selectively bump AOL subscribers “forever.”  Further, there is no practical way for the “hackers” to know whether you’ve forwarded the email to others.
