    I wanted to pass this on to all of you in the Baptist Board family. I checked it out on Snopes (attached below) and it looks to be serious enough to warn as many as possible.

    Please pass it along to others. :thumbs:

    Thank you for the heads up.

    Many viruses, trojans &c are designed as to "scan your computer" as a malware removal program, and then charge a credit card to remove what they themselves put on your computer.
