Don’t be fooled with online scams, they really sucks! I got a lot of e-mails every now and then telling me some sort of winning but actually will scam you if you’ll attentively reply to them with your personal information.
amazing stuff thanx 🙂
Thanks for sharing. As I said in a post on the same subject, Google won’t ask you for your password in an email. No legitimate company will. Ever. Don’t give your password to anyone via email.
thanks mate – yes we all know never to do the things you say – but sometimes people slip – even i have been caught with the MSN link viruus just recently – a message comes in and it is from a friend – it says something about photos of you and you go ahead and click the link – your virus has arrived – again thanks David – i checked out your blog – its cool 🙂
