Buyers Beware

Once again we have a nasty little email circulating that is trying to scam the unsuspecting Internet users out of their hard earned dollars. The email purports to have a product that can ?guarantee that all of your banking transactions are completely secure?.  In reality this scumware does anything but?

They are selling a VPN solution and would love to have you fall for it er?  purchase it. (Adding to their little bot I am sure).

As a matter of fact when I tried to go to the web site I got a warning from my filter that the site was a known spammer site.  

As always use good common sense and extreme caution.  Don?t believe everything you receive in email or everything that you read online.  You never know when the website is from ?Russia with love? or some other far away place.
