Reply with quote

Three times I have recieved an email about hotmail deleting acounts if people don't forward a message from people connected to this board, so here seems to be a good place to complain about it seen as people here don't realise that it is a chain letter.
The message is
Quote:
Dear Hotmail User,

Because of the sudden rush of people signing up to Hotmail,it
has come to our attention that we are vastly running out of
resources. So, within a month's time, anyone who does not
receive this email with the exact subject heading, will be
deleted off our server. Please forward this email so that we
know you are still using this account.

WARNING WARNING

We want to find out which users are actually using their
Hotmail accounts. So if you are using your account, please pass
this e-mail to every Hotmail user that you can and if you do
not pass this letter to anyone we will delete your
account.

From Mr. Jon Henerd Hotmail Admin. Dept.

Our hotmail system is getting to
crowded!! We need you to forward this to
at least 20 people. I know this seems like a large number, but
we need to find out who is really using their account. If you
do not send this to at least 10 Hotmail members, we will delete
your account. Sorry for this inconvenience.

Sincerely, Director of Hotmail Services Aaron Lopez

If this were a offical message from Microsoft do you thing they would have "warning" in capital letters twice? Or do you think they would have two exclamation marks after "our hotmail system is getting to crowded" or, for that matter, do you think they would use "to crowded" instead of "too crowded"?
Also don't you think that if they were wanting to see who isn't useing their acount that they would check whether or not you logged in instead of relying on an email which might not be sent to everyone?

Hotmail has a private account for this sort of stuff. I mean, I KNOW you've gotten e-mail from "Hotmail Staff" at least once. Seriously, Baltor's right. If you didn't realize what it was... <.<

THAT'S IT! I'M MAKING A CHAIN LETTER OF MY OWN THAT DISCOURAGES THE USE OF CHAIN LETTERS!

Anyone who would fall for that chain letter is an idiot.
