    Has anybody else been getting threats through their email saying that someone has hacked your system and knows your password, knows what you have been doing on your computer and the person is asking for money or they will send everything that they have to all my contacts?

  4. Possible scam using my email address

    Email received about possible scam?!

    I got an email earlier today about a possible scam. It said it was from the Technical dept. of Windows Security Center in Delaware, USA, saying that there was some unwanted changes & Emails from my IP address. It gave a telephone number of 1-855-441-4460
    to call. But the TO: at the top said *** Email address is removed for privacy *** and that is not my email address. Can you tell me if I should respond to this?! Thx
