I want to Thank those who responded to my blog of yesterday. I have to admit, that when it started on Saturday, and I couldn't even BE ON Spark People, it was a bit un-nerving! When the final pop-up came up and it was Internet Protection for a mere $100, I knew immediately that it was a SCAM. Until this came up though, I thought that there was really something wrong with our computer. I knew that we had anti-virus protection, but I had also read about hackers being able to get through this and destroy everything on your computer. When I mentioned the scam to my husband, I said that I couldn't understand who would fall for this and pay that amount!!! Then I really thought about it and realized that there are a lot of people out there who rely on their computer totally. The thought of it being compromised would be so scary that they would gladly pay the $100 just to keep connected.
How sad it is that there are people out there whose only function is to find ways to take advantage of others. I guess that it is a sign of our times and how much we depend on technology. It has opened up a whole new breed of corruption.
Enough negativity.............I wish all of you a GREAT new week!!!
