Beware of 'chain letters' promising free IBM PCs

Many computer users recently have been led to believe they would receive a free IBM PC, 19-inch monitor and printer, if they just forwarded a simple e-mail to at least 15 friends. The offer of a free PC is a hoax.

IBM asks that customers be wary of any such notes and refrain from forwarding these messages. You should be suspicious of any e-mail that requests you to forward the e-mail to other people. Such email is usually the basis of a "chain letter." If you receive a copy of the free PC chain letter, or any other chain letter, the best action for you to take is to delete it. DO NOT FORWARD IT TO ANYONE!
