Server Blackberry Messenger Overloaded

Isi Hoax:
"Hello, greetings from RIM (Research In Motion) proprietors of BlackBerry. This message is to inform all of our users, that our servers have recently been really full, so we are asking for your help to fix this problem. We need our active users to re-send this message to everyone on your contact list inorder to confirm our active users that use BlackBerry Messenger, if you do not send this message to all your BlackBerry Messenger contacts then your account will remain inactive with the consequence of losing all your contacts. We apologize for the inconvenience but this is the only way possible to resolve this problem. Sincerely Research in Motion. For more information visit:"

Blackberry jika memang mengirimkan pesan kepada penggunanya, biasanya melalui "System Message".

Lagipula sungguh tidak masuk akal, ketika kita sudah membayar biaya berlangganan blackberry, hanya karena kita tidak mengirimkan pesan berantai tersebut, kita akan dinonaktifkan, apalagi sampai kehilangan seluruh contact kita. Perusahaan RIM tidak akan menggunakan solusi beresiko seperti itu yang bisa menyebabkan mereka dituntut. Jika server penuh, mereka tinggal menambah server!

Namun demikian, ada penjelasan resmi dari FB Blackberry:
"We are seeing reports that people have received an email claiming to be from RIM and encouraging them to broadcast a message over BBM (BlackBerry Messenger). This message isn't from RIM. Please don't broadcast the message to your BBM contacts. We are on the case. Sorry for the inconvenience."
