Subject:Bogus Email
Time:10:05 pm
Current Mood:annoyedannoyed
Just to let you know I've received one of those bogus emails that's going round - see below. This was pretending to be from someone on my f-list as if it had been posted from the Orc in Burbank 2007 LJ group. Now that I've received this, I believe it's possible that others could get the same email pretending to come from me. If you do, please don't click on any links contained in the email - it could cause all sorts of mayhem:( I would also hate anyone to think my spelling is that bad!!

"Hi friend
Introduce you a good website; * www.ele-trade. com * My friend tom introduce me this website, it is a large wholesaler who trade mainly in all kinds of electronice products. To my surprise , their products are very low in price and high in quality .
I bought an iphone from this website last month, and the iphone works very well! I think it is a shopping paradise which can bring you much benefit, so i want to share it with you!
E-mail:ele-trade@hotmail. com
MSN:ele-teade@hotmail. com
best regards!"

I got mine from the ORC in Burbank 2007 group, too. It's weird that this bogus e-mail is coming from so many different addresses.

It is very strange - and I'm not even a member of that group - don't think I ever have been!!

Apparently there's another version going around that has tiseby.com as the electronic website instead

FYI, I ran a scan with the virus software that my email provided to me and it didn't scan all the files, plus it found no problems.

Then, I scanned it with another software product. It scanned 514,394 items and found and treated 95 malwares! I've never seen anything like that. Whatever that sucker was, it definitely was a baddy.

Thanks for the warning. This is similar to the one from Ismenin, I believe. Pity these people have nothing better to do! :-(

Yes, this is the one Issy got too. You're right - it's pathetic the way some people spend their time. The trouble is, I don't understand much about these things and worry as to how much damage they can cause:(

I know what you mean. I'm not sure about such things either, but I know that they can cause havoc with people's computers :-/
