I just got this mesage from a friend. Is it legit?
Sounds like a bunch of BS to me.
fake as hell!
This is the reason I don't use AIM anymore.
(Yes, a teenager who doesn't rely his life on AIM)
yup, all big companies and professional entities use the chain letter approach to pass important messages around. Its the most reliable and reputable system in the world and ever invested, please don't let it down.
come on, lets also be clear here, you have to be ONLINE AND ACTIVE TO get the message, the premise itself is riduclous.
if it were to be a message from AOL it would say something like AIMSystem: blah blah blah when you sign on.
Some people do not even have that many people on their buddy list...like me...
LOL! Good one!
it true for everyone under the age of 15...
Yes, I got that message this morning. Quite weird.
They'll want your credit card number next to start "charging you for your AIM service." Come on, if you can't tell thats a load of crap, I'm worried.
"Our system tracking devise will pick up this message to keep you on our active list. "
devise is usually used as a verb and does not mean device which is the noun.
Of course, the spelling mistake doesn't prove anything as we all know that those at AOL cannot spell!
If their system tracking device picks that up then it is an invasion of privacy because they are reading all of your IMs (or at least scanning them).
No way it is true, they would email you and tell you to log into their website or something if they were doing something stupid like that, although most likely they would just notify you that if you don't log in every so often they will delete the account, like hotmail does.
I love getting those virus messages on MSN, sending "photo_1.jpg.exe" to me now. I just have to laugh.
And how long have you been using this thing called the Internet?
Why don't you ask your friend?
Wow... Honestly, if you thought it was real, you need... Uhh... I dunno. But you maybe shouldn't be allowed to use AIM.
After a second read-though of that "AOL Message," I'm laughing at how poorly it's written. If anything, the "send to 20 users" should give it away.
Yeah I just got the exact same message word for word from a friend. How would they expect me to tell 20 AIM users if I only have 12 on my buddy list? This is defiantly fake. A hoax.
This thread contains critically important information. Please start 20 new MacRumors threads and paste into it all text from all posts in this thread. And tell your friends to do the same.
Legitimate spamming!? Hooray!
and if you send it to enough people you get free clothes from GAP, no wait that was something completely different.
