Another BBM Spam Message from Jim Balsamic !!

20 January 2012 No Comment


Jim Balsamic is back once again!  For those who don’t recall or never had it in the past, a BBM spam message was circulating around stating that RIM would be charging money for BBM if you did not forward the message.  The message was supposedly from a “Jim Balsamic” which is similar to the RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie.  Now Jim Balsamic is back with a whole new spam message.  This time it is suggesting to forward the BBM message due to an overload of the service. And if you decide not to, you’ll be kicked off BBM!  Any who, here’s the full spam message:

Bbm is shutting down at. 12:00.   0clock tonight if you don’t broadcast this you’ll loose your contact. Message from Jim Balsamic (CEO of RIM.  Blackberry) we have had an over usage of user names on Blackberry Messenger. We are requesting all users to forward this message to their entire contact list. If you do not forward this message, we will take it as your account is invalid and it will be deleted within the next 48 hours.

Please DO NOT ignore this message or blackberry will no longer recognise your pin. If you wish to re-activate your account after it has been deleted, a charge of 25.00 will be added to your monthly bill. We are also aware of the issue involving the pictures updates not showing. We are working diligently at fixing this problem and it will be up and running as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation from the blackberry team


So please, if you do receive this message, do not forward to other BBM friends.  It is NOT real, and RIM would never propose such stupid polices anyway.
