Be My Valentine virus

CATEGORY: Hoax virus alerts

A typical variation on the original Good Times hoax virus alert (see related link). It claims your computer will suffer a horrible death if you receive an email on Valentine's Day with the subject line "Be My Valentine." The "alert" claims "this was reported on the CBS morning news January 27, 2000."

Like most hoaxes, this one urges you to "pass this on as soon as you can to get the WORD out!!!!"
