    I was told by a guy in India[called about tec support] that they were getting reports that there is a virus that can attach to some of those emails that get forward . You know to ones that say pass it on. I know my anti virus programs have been busy the last few days scaning

    I read that the ones that say "Pass this on to ten of your friends....." are likely candidates to contain virus. It is also important not to click on obvious spam as it can, not says it all does, also let the sendee know you may be interested in like products.

    I clicked on one about extended warranties on cars and have finally had to set my spam filters to send these to my "Junk" folder.

    There is also a quiz being sent around I think one was on this site, if you take it your phone can be charged a fee, buyer beware.

    Yep, and I do believe that they told Columbus he was going to sail off the edge of the world too....... ;-)

    If you have good Anti-Virus and keep it up to date, and have a good firewall and have it turned on, you shouldn't have to much to worry about.

    Just stay away from those porn sites.........lol
