[b][i]Hi, It is a scam only. There are many sites that ask the fellows to download X-rated pictures. And hence, if it is a crime the many millions will be triggered , so don't worry , they are all scam. Don't reply to them, just send that to thrash..[/i][/b]

Definite scam. I've been getting emails each week telling me my computer has been infected with a virus. Their email (always a different email address) tells me to download the attachment and follow their instructions, and to send them my password as well. Duh, do they really think I'm that stupid? I just delete them, and no way am I opening their attachments.

It's very obvious that it's a scam. Just a bogus e-mail. I guess it's a phishing technique of the scammers. I believe they will gonna ask some informations of yours if you will bite their bait and will offer some under the table deal to steal money or any financial stuff from you. Just ignore it, don't bother. There's a lot of them in the Internet..

I definitely think its a scam or some sort of prank because i really don't think I.E people can do this sort of stuff..they just make the browser for surfing the internet,its definitely not what it says. Anyways even if it is and they do what's written(which is impossible) as you say, u've got nothing..hope u get out of this..
