This is a hoax. The hoax message is similar to the following:

NOTE: Some copies of this hoax have multiple >>> characters and blank lines between the lines of text. These have been removed for clarity.

Your Screen Name has Been Added to the ß®øöô¥ £.¼ Hackers List! Here is how we work. Because we master MSNeverytime this letter is sent out a copy is also instantly send to us. We then scan out all the names, and place them on our hackers list. Once you send out this letter 10 times your name again is instantly removed from our list. If this letter is not sent out exactly 45 minutes after you have opened it your name will not be able to be removed from our hacking list. Here is what happened when your name is stuck on the ß®øöô¥ £.¼ hackers list.
1 -Your MSN Instant messenger password is pulled out of MSN'S files.
2 ! Stupidly MSN stores your password on a password access website.
We have cracked the password needed and have access to every account except for MSN guides (cat guides).
-We gain your credit card number, social security number, and home address. Your credit card information and home address is stored at the MSN site and with that we can gain you social security number.
-Everytime you sign on HOTMAIL, OR MSN INSTANT MESSENGER your account will be messed around with. -and much, much more with the power of ß®øöô¥ £.¼ hackers.

Don't believe this? We don't care at all because not following the directions given will harm you in over 10 ways. All you have to do is send this out to 10 people and you will never have to worry about this again. If you receive this letter again after sending it out you don't need to send it out again, because your name is
not able to be put back on. Why are we doing this? It is to get back at MSN, and we are taking action. When the members of ß®øöô¥ £.¼ hackers first signed up for MSN they were not hackers. Once they had to start paying 21 dollars for MSN they decided to <explative deleted> over MSN. Also the ß®øöô¥ £.¼ hackers are doing this because of the many ads on MSN. When you first sign on MSN you receive too many ads and <explative deleted> when you go to internet channels, and more pop ads when you click on things. We have had enough! That's why ß®øöô¥ £.¼ exists.

All you must do now is send this to 10 other MSN members and you will never again have to worry about ß®øöô¥ £.¼ hackers. SEND THIS OUT NOW TO 10 PEOPLE IF YOU WANT TO SAVE YOUR ACCOUNT, CREDIT CARD, AND MUCH MORE!Please ignore any messages regarding this hoax and do not pass on messages. Passing on messages about the hoax only serves to further propagate it.
