On Stupid Blackberry Broadcasts...

I know so many posts have been written about 'not-so-wise' Blackberry broadcasts, but I will go on to add one more to the fray... :)

Yesterday, I received the following broadcast from a friend on BBM, a graduate o... I was super-shocked!

"BBM is shutting down today at 12.00pm tonight if you don't broadcast this you'll loose your contacts Sorry guys Apparently it is true, cause it happened to certain people already, so I'm not taking any chances !! Message from Jim Balsamic (CEO of RIM Blackberry) we have had an over usage of user names on Blackberry Messenger. We are requesting all users to forward this message to their entire contact list. If you do not forward this message, we will take it as your account is invalid and it will be deleted within the next 48 hours. Please DO NOT ignore this message or blackberry will no longer recognise your pin. If you wish to re-activate your account after it has been deleted, a charge of $25.00 will be added to your monthly bill. We are also aware of the issue involving the pictures updates not showing. We are working diligently at fixing this problem and it will be up and running as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation... by the way this will be the last Broadcast from us VSFTBC"

What kind of graduate believes these things and forwards this kind of BC?
