The “Win a Holiday” Hoax!

The “Win a Holiday” Hoax! VIRUS WARNING !!!!!! If you receive an email titled “WIN A HOLIDAY” DO NOT open it. Typical signs of a hoax here: It will erase everything on your hard drive. Forward this letter out to as many people as you can. and above we see the other classic hoax indication (to forward the hoax to as many people as you can. This is a new, very malicious virus and not many people know about it. This information was announced yesterday morning from Microsoft; A “new” virus would be no big deal. We see over 250 new viruses each month. MicroSoft is not in the business of announcing viruses. please share it with everyone that might access the internet. Once again, pass this along to EVERYONE in our address book so that this may be stopped. Also, do not open or even look at any mail that says “RETURNED OR UNABLE TO DELIVER” The “RETURNED OR UNABLE TO DELIVER” is copied from other hoaxes that we have covered here and it is intended to make people think they have seen the supposed virus message because almost everyone that sends much email will occasionally get a “RETURNED OR UNABLE TO DELIVER” when there is a problem delivering a message. (This should be no cause for alarm!) This virus will attach itself to your computer components and render them useless. Immediately delete any mail items that say this. AOL has said that this is a very dangerous virus and that there is NO remedy this to all your online friends ASAP. Ahhh, another appeal to authority (AOL) and, of course, unverifiable. And we are expected to believe that AOL is an authority on viruses?! And we see yet another exhortation to send this hoax to all our friends.
