Avoiding MSN Hackers-Fiction!
Forward An Email to Avoid Being The Victim of Hackers Targeting MSN-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
The email claims to be from a bunch of disgruntled MSN users who have become hackers (computer hobbyists who try to break into websites). They claim to be able to collect names from emails that are sent over the Internet and put them on what they call their "hackers list." If you send out their email ten times, they will remove your name from their list....but only if you do it within 45 minutes of opening it.
This is a poorly-constructed hoax. There is no evidence of this group and even if there was, no one would benefit from your forwarded emails. There isn't any device or system that tracks emails that are forwarded from person to person.
A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
Your Screen Name has Been Added to the ß®øöô¥ £•¼ Hackers List!
Here is how we work. Because we master MSN every time this letter is sent out a copy is also instantly send to us. We then scan out all the names, and place them on our hackers list. Once you send out this letter 10 times your name again is instantly removed from our list.
If this letter is not sent out exactly 45 minutes after you have opened it your name will not be able to be removed from our hacking list. Here is what happened when your name is stuck on the ß®øöô¥ £•¼ hackers list.
-Your MSN Instant messenger password is pulled out of MSN’S files. Stupidly MSN stores your password on a password access website. We have cracked the password needed and have access to every account except for MSN guides (cat guides). -We gain your credit card number, social security number, and home address. Your credit card information and home address is stored at the MSN site and with that we can gain you social security number. –
Everytime you sign on HOTMAIL, OR MSN INSTANT MESSENGER your account will be messed around with. -and much, much more with the power of ß®øöô¥ £•¼ hackers. Don’t believe this? We don’t care at all because not following the directions given will harm you in over 10 ways. All you have to do is send this out to 10 people and you will never have to worry about this again. If you receive this letter again after sending it out you don’t need to send it out again, because your name is not able to be put back on.
Why are we doing this? It is to get back at MSN, and we are taking action. When the members of ß®øöô¥ £•¼ hackers first signed up for MSN they were not hackers. Once they had to start paying 21 dollars for MSN they decided to f*** over MSN. Also the ß®øöô¥ £•¼ hackers are doing this because of the many ads on MSN. When you first sign on MSN you receive too many ads and shit when you go to internet channels, and more pop ads when you click on things. We have had enough! That’s why ß®øöô¥ £•¼ exists. All you must do now is send this to 10 other MSN members and you will never again have to worry about ß®øöô¥ £•¼ hackers.
SEND THIS OUT NOW TO 10 PEOPLE IF YOU WANT TO SAVE YOUR ACCOUNT, CREDIT CARD, AND MUCH MORE!
