Beware of the computer hackers

Post by phil58490 » Fri Jan 15, 2016 10:59 pm

I have been getting emails that imply that I should log into various other sites including the National lottery and banks. It is easy to see by hovering the curser over the email address link in the emails that they are not to the sites they purport to be and I don't have any dealings with some of them anyway.

I use phil58490 as my user name on this site and a couple of other sites so I do not know which site the hackers have compromised.

The emails have been addressed to my normal email address and quoted my CVRDA user name, I guess they assume I use the same user name on other sites.

Fortunately I have not been tricked into clicking onto any of the hackers sites.

I have scanned my computer with anti virus software and it appears to be clean.

In the words of the dispatch sergeant on Hill Street Blues, " be careful out there'.

I have had one tonight, supposedly from one of our members, I have messaged him to check his email account.
