Thanks Christopher.

Thanks for the warning Chris. Especially this time of year with all the internet purchases for the holidays. Greenie for you.

Thanks Christopher!

That was my thought Stephen, internet purchases and gifts from out of town relatives. It could be easy to fall for.

Oh, and thanks for the :mrgreen:

Thanks for the info. I have already received at least two of these in the past week, they never reached my inbox. My ISP offer Emscan. Its a great tool that every POP3 mail server should be running. It costs about $3/Mo for them to implement.:cool: Also stops alot of phishing scams, VIRUSES and the best of all the SPAM.
