It's bull, and forwarding that message would be considered spam (to me, anyway).

That's what I thought, but I like to verify, and not think I know everything.

Did you get that as a PIN message or SMS? Tell whoever sent it to stop. There is no such thing as a PIN virus.

Also you might want to remove your PIN from your profile if you are getting crap like that. Making it public is a direct invitation for trouble.

I didn't get it at all. Someone sent the message to me and I told them that its a hoax and not possible, but I thought I would check with the experts.
