Dear user of E-gold.

By the reason that the last time the number of
complaints of unapproved removal of money resources
became more often, we ask you to install the following
service pack on your computer. This renovation blocks
all known Trojan modules which allow removal of your
money without your permission.

- In case of losing money from your account, E-gold
*DOES NOT* take any responsibility if this service pack
wasn't installed on your computer.

- The installation file is on the archive attached to
this letter.
