Hi folks
I'm always amazed when so many people worry about things like rootkits on domestic "mom and pop" type computers when a much more worrying problem is how many get conned by simple scams.

Latest one going around is the so called "Ghosting Scam" where a middle man / agent pretends to organise your car / house insurance for you, you pay the money and a few days later the "Broker" cancels the policy -- so he gets the money refunded while you are left without cover.

Third party A/V solutions don't protect against this type of stuff --very sophisticated A.I will help - but we are years off that yet. Please take note of "on going scams" and avoid. !!!!

Cheers
jimbo
