I just had a look and it said that it is a hoax

this is one of those emails that tries to scare people about a virus and instead just ends up clogging up mailboxes. That is the whole point of this one. Definitely not a virus.

Hi,
For everyone that thinks its a hoax i actually think it might be real.
I just loked n DP hotmail inbox and there was a 'hello neighbour' thing in there. I wasnt game enough to open it.

If you think its a hoax would you like me to send it to you and you can open it and let me know. lol.

Another good website to check hoax emails is

hoax-slayer.com

It said this particular hoax email has been circulating since 2001.
It will also tell you which ones are true.
I've been getting these for a couple of weeks now but as soon as i see them i delete them without opening them.
Just checked my email and there was another two.
