Exclamation BBM Fancy Smiley Icons a virus???

Please Login to Remove!

My BBM contacts have been flooding my messenger with links that lead to adding more smileys to the blackberry automatically. Now I'm getting flooded with messages that the link is a virus and after 3 days will shut down my phone and steal my info. Is this true? I thought blackberry's do not get viruses someone told me?

Also, don't click on the links your BBM contacts are sending you. And you could remove those contacts.

There have been some reports of BlackBerry Messenger hoax messages circulating around.
