Chain mail virus warning...is true?

#1urukhai2005Posted 4/9/2013 12:49:51 PM
Someone msg me and said do not add...<the following psn ids> they hold viruses, your friends list will be infected! Then wanted to forward the msg to all my friends list.
How do i know that the msg IS the virsus, and hackers just want me to spread it onto my friend list? I dont think i should forward it, because i believe it could be the virsus.

Did anyone else get this msg???

Shortly afterwards PSN failed, when i checked connection test on xmb.

I hope its nothing serious.

PS3 can't get viruses, it's fake, just like every other chain message.

If it wasn't from an official, trusted Sony account, I would just trash it and not forward it.

I got one back in the day where it said a little girl would stand at the end of my bed(I slept at the top of a bunk bed back then btw) if I didn't send it to like 100 people.

Never did see that girl, and if I did, she would get punched in the face.

I've gotten so many "Pass this on or die" chains. . . technically, I guess I'm the ghost of the ghosts of my ghost's ghost. lol :P

hey friend

we see a lot of these comments on youtube,
with many variations. sometimes its a girl that got killed
that will come back to haunt you
or its something else entirely
but i would forward it because it can be dangerous if its true
what if you get a virus that trashes your ps3
or if a girl shows up from her grave
its possible


wow that turned into a great poem without me realizing it xD
