Hi. I received this email this morning, thought I would pass it on, better to be safe than sorry.
Cheers Sid

Please take note,

IF A PERSON CALLED SIMON ASHTON ([email protected] ) CONTACTS YOU THROUGH EMAIL DON'T OPEN THE MESSAGE. DELETE IT BECAUSE HE IS A HACKER!!

TELL EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST BECAUSE IF SOMEBODY ON YOUR LIST ADDS HIM THEN YOU WILL GET HIM ON YOUR LIST. HE WILL FIGURE OUT YOUR ID COMPUTER ADDRESS, SO COPY AND PASTE THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE EVEN IF YOU DON'T CARE FOR THEM AND FAST BECAUSE IF HE HACKS THEIR EMAIL HE HACKS YOUR MAIL TOO!!!!!.

Anyone-using Internet mail such as Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL and so on. This information arrived this morning, Direct from both Microsoft and Norton. Please send it to everybody you know who has access to the Internet. You may receive an apparently harmless e-mail titled 'Mail Server Report'

If you open either file, a message will appear on your screen saying: 'It is too late now, your life is no longer beautiful.'

Subsequently you will LOSE EVERYTHING IN YOUR PC,
And the person who sent it to you will gain access to your name, e-mail and password.

This is a new virus which started to circulate on Saturday afternoon. AOL has already confirmed the severity, and the anti virus software's are not capable of destroying it.

The virus has been created by a hacker who calls himself 'life owner'.

PLEASE SEND A COPY OF THIS E-MAIL TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS, And ask them to
PASS IT ON IMMEDIATELY!

Hi Sid,

yes it's a hoax :

http://www.hoax-slayer.com/simon25-hacker-hoax.shtml

My brother-in-law sent this to me only a few days ago, I pointed him towards the link above.

Before anyone starts complaining 'why don't people check first before posting about these blah-blah-blah' :lol: Not all people think to check the net first/or even know how or where to check, not all people are capable of finding the relevant information to calm their fears over these emails.

[Tip if members want to check for themselves] If any member is concerned over these emails they receive, simply copy the first line of the email and paste it into Google and search, you will get the required information and can put your mind at ease :wink:

Posting them here may get some members backs up, I would rather see them and let all members read they are false :wink:

MHS...Rob :D

I have a suspicion (unproven either way) that these "pass it on to all your friends" e-mails are gathering all the addresses the gullibles who pass them on - pass them on to and send them back up the line somehow.

Based on the fact that soon after some "friend" passes one on to me I often get a burst of spam on that address.

Nothing about the www would surprise me.
