RIM scaling problems? Or just chain IM’s?

I received from several BlackBerry IM contacts the following message:

Hello, greetings from RIM (Research In Motion) proprietors of BlackBerry. This message is to inform all of our users, that our servers have recently been really full, so we are asking for your help to fix this problem. We need our active users to re-send this message to everyone on your contact list inorder to confirm our active users that use BlackBerry Messenger, if you do not send this message to all your BlackBerry Messenger contacts then your account will remain inactive with the consequence of losing all your contacts.

We apologize for the inconvenience but this is the only way possible to resolve this problem. Sincerely Research in Motion. For more information visit:

Of course it doesn’t take much to realize that this is a chain-mail type of IM. The web page itself doesn’t exist. Wonder how many people forwarded it..
