This is VERY bizzare,ive jsut recived a email from a address i dont know has anyone else had it & it stated this..?

Hey it is tara and john the directors of MSN, sorry for the interruption but
msn is closing down. this is because too many inconsiderate people are
taking up all the name (eg making up lots of different accounts for just one
person), we only have 578 names left. If you would like to close your
account, DO NOT SEND THIS MESSAGE ON. If you would like to keep your
account, then SEND THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST. This is no
joke, we will be shutting down the servers. Send it on, thanks. WHO EVER
DOES NOT SEND THIS MESSEAGE, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE CLOSED AND YOU WILL COST
10.00 A MONTH TO USE. SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST. NOW YOU
KNOW WHAT TO DO. PLEASE DO NOT FORWARD THIS or REPLAY. COPY THE WHOLE EMAIL.
GO BACK TO YOUR INBOX AND CLICK ON NEW. AND PASTE THANK YOU FOR YOUR
ATTENTION. It's no joke if you don't believe me then go to the site
(click here ) and see for yourself.
Anyways once you've sent this message to at least 18 contacts, your msn dude
will become blue

Did you read the email? Come on now it starts hey this is Tara and John the Directors of....

You didn't actually believe this rubbish did you?

Directors do not send emails out to clients saying things like that and if you read the rest of the rubbish about sending it on to everyone. Come on now its an obvious hoax.
