Re: FWD>FW- Virus Warning

Do NOT circulate this message. This is a hoax. Check it out at:


There are many sites on the Internet to help those who receive 
such warnings. Specifically, you MUST make an effort to check 
out such warnings BEFORE circulating them. The only purpose of a 
hoax is to stampede you into circulating before checking. Don't 
do it.
