Virus Scare

email #1

A t t e n t i o n: This is very scary and is not a joke.

Please read—it definitely is a serious threat to our lives and health. This is an alert about a virus in the original sense of the word…... one that affects your body….. not your hard drive.

There have been 23 confirmed cases of people attacked by the Klingerman Virus a virus that arrives in your real mailbox, not in your e-mail inbox.

Someone has been mailing large blue envelopes, seemingly at random, to people in the US and Canada. On the front of the envelope in bold black letters is printed “A Gift For You From The Klingerman Foundation.”

When the envelopes are opened, there is a small sponge sealed in plastic. This sponge carries what has come to be known as the Klingerman Virus and public health officials state this is a strain of virus they have not previously encountered. Those who have come in contact with the Klingerman Virus have been hospitalized with severe dysentery. So far seven of the twenty-three victims have died. There is no legitimate Klingerman Foundation mailing unsolicited gifts.

If you receive an oversized blue envelope in the mail marked

“A Gift For You From The Klingerman Foundation,” do not open it !!!!!

Place it in a strong plastic bag or container and call the police immediately. The “gift” is one you definitely do not want to open.

I don’t know if this is true…........ There are so many stories going around…

Apparently, there is something being sent in the mail from Florida.  It is a blue envelope marked “GIFT”.  If you receive something like this in the mail, DO NOT OPEN IT!  It is filled with some kind of poisonous powder that will explode in your face.  Also that there was a sponge with some kind of virus on it that was killing people.  That’s all I know but I thought it was something worth passing on, just for safety’s sake.
