URGENT!!!

PLEASE CIRCULATE to your friends, family and contacts...

In the coming days, DO NOT open any message with an attachment called:
Black in the White House, regardless of who sent you .. ..

It is a virus that opens an Olympic torch that burns the whole hard disk C of your computer.

This virus comes from a known person who you had in your list
Directions. .
That's why you should send this message to all your Contacts.

It is better to receive this email 25 times, than to receive the virus and Open .. If you receive a message called: black in the white house, even Sent by a friend, do not open and shut down your machine immediately.

It is the worst virus announced by CNN. A new virus has been discovered recently it has been classified by Microsoft as the virus most destructive ever. This virus was discovered yesterday afternoon by McAfee. And there is no repair yet for this kind of virus. This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the hard disk, where information
vital function is stored.

I hope your other 31279 posts were better than this :-D

virus, what virus? As if .....

.... yawn ....

I visited hoax-slayer.com/bla…tml as RobinBrentwood so helpfully gave us, and as suspected, this is a hoax.

I am not saying Predikuesi is at fault, better safe than sorry I suppose, but time for the Mods to EXPIRE this in its current form as it is disseminating a falsehood.

But the title is inaccurate, this is never classed as a scam, it is a viral hoax.

There is no pecuniary gain, that would make it count as a scam.

Scams, by definition, are attempts to defraud.

So those of us not trusting the ability of the poster to create a coherent and cogent title, have to assume the attempt is to "spread the word" for mischevious purposes.
