tip #51: June 30, 2003: Email entitled “Internet Security Patch”
received this email today.
Don’t know if you did or not.
If you did, it is a fake and nothing good can come of running
either of the programs attached to it.
Delete it from your Inbox, delete everything from your Deleted
Items folder and then run a Compact Folders – kidding really, although
you should do all those things from time to time anyway.
The message originated from the following email address fxrrmmo614426@wqNIwonwl.com.
If there were a way to pay this joker back without giving him my
email address I would. Maybe we could all go to Yahoo, open a new email
account and send this guy about 15,000 bogus emails each.
Ah well, it will turn out someone highjacked fxrr etc. from some
poor innocent bystander and we would make that poor guy’s life
Forget the counter attack, just delete the message as soon as you
