Well it didn't long for a new strain of the bum_tnoo7 chain letter / spam / hoax to hit the good old FaceBook.
This new version warns us of a new diabolical hacker called Kurt Chapman who no doubt plans to take control of the intertubes simply by having you add him as a friend.
What I find hilarious is that they haven't even bothered to change the text other than the name. Some of the grammatical errors in this version of the letter or the intentional l33t speak (depending on your point of view) have been corrected, but it's basically the same thing.
The bum_tnoo7 warning
If somebody called firstname.lastname@example.org adds u don't accept it because its a hacker.
Tell every one on ur list because if somebody on ur list adds them u get them on ur list he'll figure out ur ID computer address, so copy and paste this message to every one even if u hate them and fast cause if he hacks their mail he hacks ur mail!
Kurt Chapman warning
If some boy called KURT CHAPMAN adds u don't accept it because its a hacker!!
I just hope that the guy in photo is not the real Kurt Chapman. I'm sure being associated with the next viral spam wave to hit FaceBook is not going to be pleasant.
So be kind and please don't inundate my inbox with this spam. Thanks!
Now be sure to forward this on to all your friends and if you don't the earth will open up and eat you hole. It's true it happened to me!
