This message seems to be a CHAIN LETTER/HOAX message spreading quickly in Orkut and through e-mails. Many other variants are also there like the following one:

""Plz don't delete dis...forward it.....

Hello,

my name is Krista and I have a new born baby named Natalie. She means the world to me, and just recently the doctors discovered that she had Brain Cancer.
Unfortunately my husband and I don't have enough money to even pay the bills. My Husband and I worked out a deal with YAHOO and AOL and ORKUT
and they have agreed to give us 5 cents for each person that receives this IM, so please forward this to everyone you know and help out. PLz""

----------------------------------------------------------------------

It is obvious that NO ONE at YAHOO, AOL and ORKUT will agree for a deal like that....if at all...they would have donated some money in charity out of their profits!! They won't allow someone to spread a CHAIN LETTER like these.
