I just got these two scams in my email.

"Dear Citibank Member,

address. You must complete this process by clicking on the link
below and entering in the small window your Citibank ATM/Debit
Card number and PIN that you use on ATM.
This is done for your protection -4- becaurse some of
our members no longer have access to their email addresses and
we must verify it.

Now, I was born at night but it wasn't LAST night. I tried to contact these two or report them but they only seem to operate for short periods of time then move on to the next scam.

If I were a hacker these scum would be top on my list. The first one even had a return address of CitiBank. What scares me is that each round of viruses and scams seem to be more sophisticated than the last. Me thinks that pretty soon a hacker will get us all.

I think I will backup my important docs, and family pictures right now.

Sky6,

Government is really going to have to step up and get these parasites. My private email was pretty quiet getting one or two weekly spam bucket mails a week. All of the sudden since a month ago I've been getting around 12 a day and can't understand why, slowly and with time a good friend might be able to track this.

Spam programs really don't work that well either as all your doing is viewing the headers and deleting them before they come into your computer.

I think part of it is that if someone you know is sending you jokes or forwarding emails to many address these parasites have some way of picking off the email address. Just speculating here. Does anyone know of any Spam program or routine that actually works?

Btw, where are all your Tellico pics, lets post some up!
