    Default Malware being sent using Homeland Security

    I Just read this a few moments ago, There is email being sent out under Homeland Security, about usage of your personal computer, and it being locked until you pay a fine or what ever it is. Itas just another scam with malware attached and who knows what else just deleated it, without opening it! JUst though Id pass the word along...Doc

    I got a page claiming to be from the FBI wanting me to pay a $250 fine for looking at porn.It locked my PC on me.I called Microsoft and a Indian guy informed me it was a scam.I unpluged my PC and then powered it back up.All was well.

    I use linux 90% of the time. I hate windows.

    RailBuggy, i always laugh when i hear the heavy Indian accent say "Hello my name is thomas, how can i help you?" I always end up just asking what their real name is.

    Shows how stupid people are. All these scams are the same, whether from the "FBI, IRS, DHS, CIA, NSA," etc.

    NOT ONE of these agencies sends anything via email outside of their closed networks.
