My father as just become victam of an email scam which as destroyed all his files, he sent me the following message, read and bewarned!
Be warned I have been targeted by a nasty scam called Security Systems 2009. You may get a pop up telling you have a trojan virus aka spyware. Then it tells you to download a programme which looks like a legitimate windows programme to get rid of it . I did it but it infected my whole computer . Every conceivable way of getting shot of it was tried. There was 2 ways out one was to pay up $79 S S 2009 demanded to unlock everything or wipe the hard drive using a special disk. I took the second nuclear option but had to loose all my files, photos going back 5 years at least. You have been warned. ********* off but at least I blasted the ***********. And it never got my $79 and who knows it may have not worked anyway.
