Hasta Sophos han llegado diferentes versiones de esta carta en cadena.

Esta es la primera versión:

Please read and forward to anyone you know who drives. * My name is Captain Abraham Sands of the Jacksonville, Florida Police Department.I have been asked by state and local authorities to write this email in order to get the word out to car drivers of a very dangerous prank that is occurring in numerous states Some person or persons have been affixing hypodermic needles to the underside of gas pump handles. These needles appear to be infected with HIV positive blood. In the Jacksonville area alone there have been 17 cases of people being stuck by these needles over the past five months. We have verified reports of at least 12 others in various states around the country. It is believed that these may be copycat incidents due to someone reading about the crimes or seeing them reported on the television. At this point no one has been arrested and catching the perpetrator(s) has become our top priority. * Shockingly, of the 17 people who where stuck, eight have tested HIV positive and because of the nature of the disease, the others could test positive in a couple years. Evidently the consumers go to fill their car with gas, and when picking up the pump handle get stuck with the infected needle. IT IS IMPERATIVE TO CAREFULLY CHECK THE HANDLE of the gas pump each time you use one. LOOK AT EVERY SURFACE YOUR HAND MAY TOUCH, INCLUDING UNDER THE HANDLE. If you do find a needle affixed to one, immediately contact your local police department so they can collect the evidence. ***********PLEASE HELP US BY MAINTAINING A VIGILANCE AND BY FORWARDING THIS EMAIL TO ANYONE YOU KNOW WHO DRIVES. THE MORE PEOPLE WHO KNOW OF THIS THE BETTER PROTECTED WE CAN ALL BE.

En la versión australiana, el asunto dice 'Important Message from the Melbourne Centre of Disease Control'. Este es el texto del mensaje:

HIV Warning

The following information about the Melbourne incident has been sent by the Police and to all departments of Melbourne who have transmitted this News to all its cities. We have been asked to pass this message along to the greatest number of people as possible.

A few weeks ago, in a movie Theatre in Melbourne, a person sat on something poking that was on one of the seats. When she got up to see what it was, she found a needle sticking out of the seat with a note attached saying "You have just been infected by HIV".

The Disease Control Centre (in Melbourne) reports many similar events in many other cities recently. All tested needles ARE HIV Positive. The Centre also reports that needles have been found in the cash dispensers at Public Banking Machines (ATMs).

We ask everyone to use extreme caution when faced with this kind of situation. All public chairs/seats should be inspected with vigilance and caution before use. A careful visual inspection should be enough. In addition, they ask that each of you pass this message along to all members of your family and your friends of the potential danger.

Recently, one doctor has narrated somewhat a similar instance happened at the Priya Cinema in Delhi to one of his patients. A young girl engaged and about to be married in a couple of months was pricked while the movie was going on. The tag with the needle had the message "Welcome to the World of HIV + family". Though the doctors told her family that it takes about 6 months before the virus grow strong enough to start damaging your system and a healthy victim could survive about 5-6 years. The girl died in 4 months, perhaps more because of the "shock-thought."

We all have to be careful at public places! This is very important. Just think about saving a life of someone even you don't know by forwarding this message. Please take a few seconds of your time to pass it along.

ACHTUNG - KEIN SCHERZ

DURCHLESEN UND WEITERLEITEN!!!

Dies hat sich in einem Kino in Köln ereignet. Vor einigen Wochen hat sich in einem Kino eine Person auf etwas Spitzes gesetzt, das sich auf einem der Sitze befand. Als sie sich wieder aufgerichtet hat, um zu sehen, um was es sich handelte, da hat sie eine Nadel gefunden, die in den Sitz gestochen war mit einer befestigten Notiz: "Sie wurden soeben durch das HIV infiziert".Das Kontrollzentrum der Krankheiten berichtet über mehrere ähnliche Ereignisse, kürzlich vorgekommen in mehreren anderen Städten. Alle getesteten Nadeln SIND HIV positiv. Das Zentrum berichtet, dass man auch Nadeln in den Geldrückgabe-Aussparungen von öffentlichen Automaten (Billette, Parking, etc.) gefunden hat. Sie bitten jeden, extrem vorsichtig zu sein in solchen Situationen. Alle öffentlichen Stühle müssen mit Wachsamkeit und Vorsicht vor Gebrauch untersucht werden. Eine peinlich genaue sichtliche Inspektion sollte ausreichen. Außerdem fordern sie jeden auf, allen Mitgliedern Ihrer Familie und Ihrer Freunde diese Nachricht zu übermitteln. Danke. Dies ist sehr wichtig!!! Denk, dass du ein Leben retten kannst, indem du diese Nachricht weiter verteilst. BITTE nimm dir einige Sekunden deiner Zeit, um die Mitteilung zu lesen und weiterzuleiten.

Ésta es la versión en danés:

DETTE ER DESVÆRRE IKKE EN JOKE

Oplysningerne er pålidelige og det er nødvendigt at de kommer ud til den almindelige befolkning hurtigst muligt.

Nedenstående skete i Paris for kort tid siden.

Det skete i et teater. Et menneske satte sig i en stol og opdagede pludselig at noget stak hende i bagen.

Da hun rejste sig op for at beskue hvad det var, opdagede hun en nål der stak op af sædet, i nålen var der vedhæftet en lille seddel. På seddelen stod: "Du er nu smittet med HIV"

Ministeriet for smitsomme sygdomme (i Paris) har offentligt forklaret, at denne episode desværre ikke er nogen engangsforteelse, men noget der efterhånden sker tit og ofte.

ALLE nåle der er fundet ved lignende episoder, har været testet HIV positive

Ikke nok med at nålene er fundet i stole i teatre og biografer, men de er også fundet der hvor kunderne tager pengesedler ud ved pengeautomater!!!

Vi vil bede alle om at udvise stor opmærksomhed og forsigtighed i forhold til dette.

Alle sæder i offentlige bygninger må kigges godt igennem inden man sætter sig ned.

Dem der er kommet med advarslen vil ligeledes bede dig som modtager af mailen om at videresende denne meget vigtige besked, for at forhindre at flere bliver smittet med HIV på denne måde.

Disse oplysninger er blevet sendt til alle politistationer i Frankrig, hvor politiet er bedt om at advare befolkningen i deres hjemby. Vi er også bedt om at sprede denne advarsel videre og håber at du vil gøre det samme

Ved at bruge et par sekunder til at sprede dette budskab videre, kan du være med til at redde menneskeliv.

Med hilson
