    Please be careful. There's a scam going on where you receive an e-mail where an MS Office Word File's attached, the e-mail saying that a huge amount of XXXXX $ will be deducted from your Visa card soon.

    Please don't open the attachment, it opens the door for a serious Trojan horse that could get all ( stored) information.

    I was stupid enough to do so, but Kaspersky protected me. Please spread the word.

    P.S. It will install something on your machine that will gain all needed information to make you poor if you do have a Visa card.

    Rule #1: if it looks too good to be true, than it is.

    Rule #2: Don't open any attachment anytime ever.

    You can have the 20 million Euros from an Arabic princess whose daddy got killed in a sandstorm.

    Please send me a private message with your bank account info, your credit card, and Pin. Congratulations.
