This is another hoax email virus in the vein of the infamous Good Times hoax. It may have the subject
'Join the Crew' and contain the text
If you receive an e-mail titled "JOIN THE CREW" DO NOT open it!
It will erase EVERYTHING on your hard drive!
Send this letter out to as many people you can.
This particular hoax email virus was seen as early as January 1997,
although it has only recently become quite widespread.
