How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Lucky you! Congratulations with this.

:whistle: I will say: Don't walk in the trap.
When I see this sort messages, than the bells ringing, you know.
The possibility is also that when you visit their site, that the spammer trace your computer data.
Think about Rogue software.
In that spam message can the spammer built in something that he or she can trace somebody's computer.
When I got spam in mine e-mail box for post-box in, than I remove this immediately.

I find it sad to hear the stories of people tricked into these schemes as they get swept away in the moment of the win.
Only to find that they have offered their very personal info to these tricksters.
You would think that when thousands in money is pulled out of a bank and moved into another the authoritys could simply go to that bank and arrest the crook.

Somebody I actually know responded to an ad on a website (unbeknownst to me) to buy a car for less than half it's value. I won't go into the scam because it is a common one that I thought everybody knew about.
He with trust in his heart believed every word. He wired them alot of money that had taken him years to save.
And when the car never showed reality slowly dawned.
Reminds me of malware

I win the Lottery again


When this is true, than is it weird that I am not a Millionaire.
Few years ago, got I the same subject in my Yahoo box.
At that moment was I not so known with Viruses, Trojans and other vulnerable stuff.
So I took a change and gave my reply, I can sure you, I am not a poor man, but also not rich.
Now am I on Internet few years further and I know what Viruses, Trojans and Rogue software is, I say and I stay with that saying, people maybe do you thinking, this sort messages is true, don't believe that guys and ladies, when you read this sort messages and you let see, that you do exist, than get you more and more Spam, believe me.

I was from 2003 to 2010 7 years a member of Pc Pitstop forum and from my good friends Juliet and Jacee have I many things learned on that case.
I must saying that I am not a Hijackthis expert but I do know lot of things on that area, so by my ex membership on the Pit, do I know that it is stupid when you give you're response.
Note: Thank you my girls that in the period that I was a Pitmember, you have learned me what you must not doing on Internet.

I say exact the same, what I did tell earlier: People don't walk in the trap from the spammers.

Yes Boopme, now I do know this.
We are many years further, at least I am many years further with Internet and what you got expect, so I don't make the fault anymore.
That I made that fault many years ago, was a beginning fault.
