Default BlackBerry users get fake fundraising spam

Putting this in General Forums instead of OT since OT is not searchable or seen when clicking New Posts.

FYI - a fake message is being spread around about a Haiti fundraising campaign via BlackBerry Messenger.

RIM says this is false (not sure where is started) so if you get the message:


Because of what has transpired in Haiti recently, Blackberry (sic) has decided to help out and give 35 cents for the cause when you pass this message along to your friends on BBM
...ignore it.
No longer a BES Admin, but it was fun while it lasted!
