Sorry for the interruption but MSN is closing down. This is because too many inconsiderate people are taking up all the name (e.g. Making up lots of different accounts for just one person, etc.), we only have 578 names left. If you would like to close your account, DO NOT SEND THIS MESSAGE ON. Ifyou would like to keep your
Account, then SEND THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST. This is no
joke, we will be shutting down the servers.
Send it on, thanks.
WHO EVER DOES NOT SEND THIS MESSAGE, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE CLOSED AND IT WILL COST YOU 10.00 A MONTH TO USE. SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST. NOW YOU
KNOW WHAT TO DO. PLEASE DO NOT FORWARD THIS or REPLAY. COPY THE WHOLE EMAIL.
GO BACK TO YOUR INBOX AND CLICK ON NEW. AND PASTE THANK YOU FOR YOUR
This is no joke if you don't believe us then go to this site:
and see for yourself. Anyways once you've sent this message to at least 18 contacts, your MSN icon will become blue. Please copy and paste don't forward because people wont read them.
Strange how the site link they mention was written 7-8 years ago, and states that the shutdown would occur within 12 months? And the BBC site actually said the core programs (ie. Hotmail and MSN) would remain free!
Also strange how since this e-mail started back in 2001, but every single time it comes back around to my inbox, they still have 578 names left?
I don't see how that's possible. I mean, people are making accounts every day, and you could always have names like this:
Note: These e-mail addresses are made up
The point is there are all sorta of combnations you could make, so there must be more than 578 names. And that's WITHOUT considering the extra names available with the new @live.com addresses.
What I find funny is that people actually believe these e-mails, panic, and then send them to lots of people to save their precious MSN.
Then they panic more when their MSN "guy" doesn't turn blue like the chain letter says it will! :O Shock horror, now they're going to have to pay for their MSN!
Wait a second, how are they going to pay?
And of course there's the bad spelling and grammar, excessive sue of capitals and exclamation marks, the large grey font, and lack of official MSN header and footer.
So tell me guys, how many times has this run through your inbox, and how do people fall for this and keep sending it on?
