Spammers, computer viruses, suck and cost us a heck of a lot of money nd they laugh. This might be my third computer if they computer guys r not able to repair it.

    Why does "Mike Weber" sound familiar?

    The email Popeye received was one of those mass forwarded type emails. Some of the other parties in the list of recipients were mutual friends of mine and Popeyes and he recognized their names and email addresses. That's how he knew that my email address book had been compromised.

    Hey all

    We've read over this thread and done some digging, including running scans on our forum and specifically that thread. It is not pulling up anything.

    Has anyone else been reporting any funny email issues?

    Ninety nine percent of them are located in India.

These days you don’t necessarily have to click a link in order for them to tag your computer.
    Seems that particular thread had more than imbedded keywords, after a scan I ended up removing 335 malicious scripts from my computer that were attached to that thread.
    The harvester was located in the signature line. I deleted it.

    This is some serious stuff! After picking up this malware yesterday I've been notified that unauthorized transactions have been made on my credit card this morning.
