Have you or someone you know ever been scammed by one of those email phishing scams (i.e. the Nigerian bank one, emails that look like they are coming from your bank, etc.)? I have gotten a ton but never responded. But I have heard that others have.

I guess I am lucky I my bank will not send me an email with a link. they just say log into my account if they need me to check anything or call me. Now I have had banks email me saying to verify some account info and I have never had an account there I just delete them. Ebay scams I get all the time but again the email is not going to my registered email address with ebay so those are easy to figure. so I have been lucky

I use to have lots of difficulties with virus and intrusions but downloaded the free version of avg and no longer have these problems. You can get the free version of this virus protection here: http://www1.grisoft.com/doc/products-avg-anti-virus-free-edition/lng/us/tpl/tpl01 It has warned me of many trojan emails all week and erases the bug immediately
