Klingerman virus?????

I received this e-mail from an acquaintance the other day and was wondering if anyone else has heard of this? Urban legend or some really sick folks?


This is an alert about a virus in the original sense of the
word…one that affects your body, not your hard drive.
There have been 23 confirmed cases of people attacked by the Klingerman Virus, a virus that arrives in your real mailbox, not your e-mail in box.
Someone has been mailing large blue envelopes, seemingly at random, to people inside the US. On the front of the envelope in bold black letters is printed, "A gift for you from the Klingerman Foundation.
" When the envelopes are opened, there is a small sponge sealed in plastic. This sponge carries what has come to be known as the Klingerman Virus, as public health officials state this is a strain of virus they have not previously
When asked for comment, Florida police Sergeant Stetson
said, “We are working with the CDC and the USPS, but have so far been unable to track down the origins of these letters. The return addresses have all been different, and we are certain a remailing service is being used, making our jobs that much more difficult.”


thanks, later, Tom

Snopes. Can’t go wrong there.

Just go to the Database search, and type in Klingerman. There, you’ll get the whole story on the Klingerman UL.

OK, well how do you ask the moderator to pull this thread?

It’s easy. You say:

“Moderator, please lock this thread.”

It helps to do it via e-mail, too.
