TWO SUBJECT  LINES of which to be AWARE 


   Just  verified this with Snopes and it is REAL. ALSO  WENT TO TRUTH OR
FICTION, IT'S on their  site also.



1.) Emails  with pictures of Osama Bin-Laden hanged  are being sent and the
moment that you open  these emails your computer will crash and you  will
not be able to fix  it!

 If you  get an e-mail along the lines of 'Osama Bin  Laden Captured' or
'Osama  Hanged' ,  don't open the Attachment!!!! 


   This  e-mail is being distributed through countries  around the globe,
but mainly in the US and   Israel    


   Be  considerate & send this warning to whomever  you know.

 2.)  You should be alert during the next few  days:

   Do  not open any message with an attached file  called 'Invitation'
regardless of who sent it. 


   It  is a virus that opens an Olympic Torch which  'burns' the whole hard
disc C of your  computer!!!!


   This  virus will be received from someone who has your  e-mail address in
his/her  contact list,  that is why you should send this E-mail to all  your


   It  is better to receive this message 25 times than  to receive the virus
and open it 


 If you  receive e-mail called 'invitation', even though  sent by a friend.
Do not open it!!!


   This  is the worst virus announced by CNN, it has been  classified by
Microsoft as the most destructive  virus ever.


   This  virus was discovered by McAfee yesterday, and  there is no repair
yet for   this kind of  virus.


   This  virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the  Hard Disc, where
other vital information is kept. 



It is better to give than to receive, the best things come in small packages.
