A Public Apology To All Concerned
« on: March 23, 2003, 08:28 AM »
Yesterday due to some miscommunication on my part, my better half sent out emails to all my contacts in my address book concerning an "Email Virus".
I found out that this so called Virus was a hoax from some time back.

My sincerest apologies to everyone here who received this warning from my email address....... :-[

I FIND, YOU FIND, WE TRADE

Any idea what happens if you delete the file listed in the email?

I saw the message this morning Bob and I was going to e-mail you about the hoax.  Don't feel bad as I have gotten this note numerous times.  Thanks for the thought though because viruses do suck...

I got numerous viruses from the guys at TheJawa last year (Sircam?) which is why you should never take these things too lightly

Thanks for letting us know Bob.  No worries!  I was going to delete that file later on today, but I guess I don't need to worry about it anymore...  Cool!

We're all just honored to even be in the King of Trading's address book as it is!   ;)
