The “The Bill Gates / Windows 98” Hoax! Hello Everyone, And thank you for signing up for my Beta Email Tracking Application or (BETA) for short. My name is Bill Gates. Here at Microsoft we have just compiled an e-mail tracing program that tracks everyone to whom this message is forwarded to. It does this through an unique IP (Internet Protocol) address log book database. We are experimenting with this and need your help. Forward this to everyone you know and if it reaches 1000 people everyone on the list you will receive $1000 and a copy of Windows98 at my expense. Enjoy. Note: Duplicate entries will not be counted. You will be notified by email with further instructions once this email has reached 1000 people. Windows98 will not be shipped until it has been released to the general public. Your friend, Bill Gates & The Microsoft Development Team. The classic forward this to “all your friends” is present above as a red flag indicating this is a hoax. This hoax has (I suppose) gotten wider distribution than normal since people would like to believe that Bill Gates might send them $1000 and a copy of Windows 98.


Chain Letter Virus Hoax Warning The “Chain Letter ” Virus Hoax! “This is not a joke…if you do not forward this e-mail to 20 other people………………… your computer will be a living hell thanks to one of our very own little ingenus viruses. I repeat this is not a joke this virus wil come to you only a week after you open this piece of mail in a very undiscreet e-mail If you open this e-mail after opening others, it just might come as a letter from your “buddy” No, this isn’t a “joke” but it’s certainly a hoax. If you have been reading our hoax page, you will notice the characteristic request to forward the hoax to others. This is also has the poor spelling that is found in many such juvenile messages (e.g., ingenus, undiscreet). Watch out! You have one week..starting now. If this virus gets in it won’t come back out. It will slowly delete 1 file a day from system IRQ files, startup files and win 95 kernels for registery address {1593338-489h985} Thank you for your time……. #:) hahahahaha SCREW YOU!!! With the “hahahaha” and the “SCREW YOU!!!!” text, I would not have expected people to respond to this hoax but we have received copies of this that indicate quite a large number of people have followed the instructions in the hoax. Just as people continue to respond to paper mail chain letters, they seem gullible enough to respond to this hoax. Fortunately, this hoax doesn’t make supernatural claims (“bad luck”) but simply makes claims that are impossible (being infected by a non-existent virus if you don’t forward the hoax) so there’s no reason to even think about complying this chain letter email hoax. r>
