MSN message virus?

by sonnyMan1986 / November 24, 2008 6:40 PM PST

I was on MSN the other day and i got a random message from someone not on my list. They said 'Hi love' and sent me a camera invitation. I rejected because i didn't know this person. What i'm asking, is this a virus they tried to send to me?
