There's email going around from Abuse@ or Support@
that says you have a virus and to download a file and put a password in.
DON'T do it!!

Subject like ***UNCHECKED*** Virus Alert! or Worm Activity Detected! or Spyware Detected! for a few.

I've had it on all of my accounts, it's so obvious it is fake, you would have to be a moron to actually do what they say. Well.... atleast for us....... we work on computers all damn day and are pretty used to the spam and how to fix our stuff when it breaks other than HD issues which I'm having. BLECK!

I don't open or download any emails to my HD if I don't recognize the sender, it's as simple as that

But what if you've won the lottery with a ticket that you never entered?

You'll never know!!!
