    I have recently been sent e-mails purporting to come from other members of Fun, 2 from Marie and today one from Ray. Here's a copy (changed the link so it won't work).

    Don't know where they come from, could be FUN or Facebook maybe, but other funsters may get them. Has anyone been done like I have?

    Virus scanner and firewall both up to date.

    As I said I changed the link so no one could accuse me of spreading the link, I just wanted to see if anyone else has been receiving them.

    We seem to be getting Westminster parking scams today.

    I know Ray, and the ones from Marie were not from her. Smart man refusing $20,000 I'll wait until they offer it to me. :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    I've had the Westminster parking one on a few different emails addresses today, I think that's just being blasted out everywhere.

    Re the dodgy email Kieth, it looks like someone has a compromised PC, that is how these things propagate. It sends from the infected address book, so receivers think its genuine from a friend, they open it and next thing all their friends are spammed as well, so on and so forth.

    Phishing is mad at the moment, I seem to be getting more and more, all based on the Nigerian type scams, but from China and Russia.
