Join the Crew virus

CATEGORY: Hoax virus alerts

A typical alert which devolved from the original Good Times hoax virus alert (see related link). This one claims your computer will die if you read an email with "Join the Crew" in the subject line.

Naturally, it urges you to forward the alert to everyone you know because "this is a new email virus and not a lot of people know about it."
