Probably wasn't a good idea to tackle him, it was obviously a spoof, waste of time investigating.
I started this thread, because a friend had sent me an email warning me about a virus, it looked suspiciously like a spoof, I typed in the virus's name at google, & there was the evidence, it was a spoof, a well-known one, the Olympic Torch virus.
I pasted the page to my friend in the hope that she would hit the forward button, to send the google page back to all the dozen or so people that forwarded it to her, thereby showing him/her that she was on to them, making them cautious about doing it again, that's what I intend to do if someone sends a spoof direct to me, these bl**dy idiots
don't realise that they could put some nervous people off using computers for life.
