Watch out for this Email scam...
« on: July 09, 2011, 05:59:06 AM »
Heads up...

I received this scam email about two days ago. Claimed it was from the state police in New York state. It informed me that a speeding ticket had been issued, and when you click on the attachment, you'll get a virus in your computer. ( we haven't been to New York)

Well, I immediately deleted it, and knew it had to be a scam.  I think it's coming through, on Yahoo and hotmail accounts.  I can only imagine people that live in New york, or who recently visited thinking this could be legit.

I found this link on the computer forums site that I frequent...

we got a trojan horse recently, Ray...my partner opened a "Love Card" -- yes, he knows better, but it came on the day of our 5th anniversary....he thought it was something I sent....

Cost us some $$$ to fix it....

Why do people send this stuff out?  What kind of sick pleasure does it give them?   I guess it's kind of like how we used to make 'prank' phone calls when we were kids....but that really didn't hurt anybody, or cost anyone a lot of money.....
