    Hi
    Receiving a lot of phishing / spam emails and 1 in particular '[email protected]' upto 4 times a day
    I opened this once - lots of different sized fonts like the basics behind email - lots of blank spaces - and at the bottom inferred it was from AOL and if I wanted to unsubscribe 'CLICK HERE' which I know - go on say it!!! - anyway I did

    Then a pop up took over wanting me to download then saying $71.97 to pay - I managed thro taskmanager to regain control and closed down the machine.

    THen I received a phone call from a company saying to switch on my pc as it was registered with them and that they had been informed there was a problem which they would resolve

    I asked who they were but couldnot undestand the girls 'pigeon' english - SO I ASKED for her phone number saying that I would phone them back - BUT she made alltypes of excuses saying she could not give me one etc

    So I chased her

    Now I am receiving approx 4 emails a day from [email protected] along with multiple other phishing popular financial institute emails

    Can anyone pass comment or advice - DO YOU THINK THEY HAVE HIJACKED MY MACHINE
    regards
