Scam letters contain Spyware and Trojan horses.
Spyware reads all your files, including the files your browsers keep on your hard drive. That means all your files and all your internet activity.
Trojan horses open doors in your firewall, allowing scammers to watch your screen on their computer in real time.
Your passwords, your user names, your entire identity is sold to men and women who pretend to be you to avoid arrest.
Your passwords, your user names, your entire identity is sold over and over and over again around the world to bad, bad people.
They set up accounts in your name. They commit crimes using your name. They establish credit using your name. They enter countries illegally using your name.
They cheat, they steal, they run drugs, they sell guns, they commit fraud, they leave huge debts,
ALL UNDER YOUR NAME.
I urge you to run your anti-spyware and anti-virus programs every day.
Your anti-virus software and spyware program cannot tell ahead of time what malicious devices are going to be created, they can only deal with them AFTER they have hit the Internet and they've had time to develop an eliminator.
I urge you to erase all records of your Internet activity from your hard drive.
Until you do, nothing you do on the Internet is safe from strangers. They know where you go, what you look at, what you say in chat rooms, where and how you log-in to secure sites.
Believe me when I say this:
Being a fraud victim is terrifying!
