New BBM Spam: Message from “Jim Balsamic” says to forward message or pay $25 penalty!

Well they could have at least spelled the name right.  The man isn’t the founder of vinegar.  I’m not sure if the spelling was done on purpose or not, but it is funny.  For those who don’t know, RIM’s co-CEO is Jim BALSILLIE, not Balsamic! So this mass message as seen in the screenshot above has been circulating around since yesterday.  I was emailed it once before from an anonymous readers, then woke up this morning only to see that a few of my friends received it.  Again, it was just way to funny seeing “Jim Balsamic.”  The message says that you must forward that message to all of your friends or else you get booted off BBM and have to pay $25 extra each month on your bill.  That’s just terrible.

Have any of you received this one? Anyone fall for it?

Monkey see monkey do.. Now, think about this – don’t be stupid! You know its spam so don’t forward it!
BlackBerry / RIM – Why would they need YOU to send a message to anyone? Would Vodacom send you an email saying “Please tell all your friends their account is broken” ?

This is another hoax/scam/spam/stupidity. Please, for me, don’t every broadcast another message again – you will be fine!

Upgrade your BBM in BlackBerry App World if it is having issues.

Sorry guys!  (Apparently it is true, cause its happened to certain people already, so I’m not taking any chances !!)
