    Hey it is Andy and john the directors of MSN, sorry for the interruption but
    msn is closing down. this is because too many inconsiderate people are
    taking up all the name (eg making up lots of different accounts for
    just one
    person), we only have 578 names left. If you would like to close your
    account, DO NOT SEND THIS MESSAGE ON. If you would like to keep your
    account, then SEND THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST. This
    is no
    joke, we will be shutting down the servers. Send it on, thanks.
    WHO EVER DOES NOT SEND THIS MESSEAGE, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE CLOSED AND
    YOU
    WILL COST £10.00 A MONTH TO USE. SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT
    LIST.
    NOW YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO. PLEASE DO NOT FORWARD THIS or REPLAY. COPY THE
    WHOLE EMAIL. GO BACK TO YOUR INBOX AND CLICK ON NEW. AND PASTE THANK
    YOU FOR
    YOUR ATTENTION
    hey everyone, i dont normally send this sort of stuff out but had a
    look on
    the internet and its actually true . On the 1st of november , we will
    have
    to pay for the use of our MSN and email accounts unless we send this
    message
    to at least 18 contacts on your contact list. It's no joke if you don't
    believe me then go to the site
    (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/1189119.stm ) and see for yourself.
    Anyways once you've sent this message to at least 18 contacts, your msn
    dude
    will become blue. please copy and paste don't forward cos people won't
    take
    notice of it



    the linky seems perfectly safe, and the news is only 5 years old...so beware!

    :rolleyes:

    heh, I got one of these. I don't see how people believe these things. Obviously if it was an official e-mail from Microsoft saying they're going to charge you to use the email they would at least make the email look fancy. And not just use plain text.

    Plus they spring up every time MSN goes down... then the supposed date when they will start to charge rolls along and surprise surprise!! NO FEE'S! :D

    I hate chain mail.

    Yeah, well I've sent it on to 18 contacts so I guess we'll see if it's a fake or not won't we.

    Wow a link that actually works!! I got sent an almost identical version the other day and the link they provided didnt even work. :rolleyes:

    I spend my entire time telling friends if it doesnt have an msn symbol over the envelope its not real but they dont seem to listen. And why would copying and pasting instead of forwarding work. :rolleyes: :p

    Neither would work really :p It just makes the chain look more "authentic" if it doesn't have 10 pages of people's email addresses going down the page ;)
