Sounds like a standard Microsoft lotto scam to me. AFF rather than a cheque scam.

At least I managed to get to one potential victim and warn them off it. Just hunting for the mail addy to reply to. Just to see where it leads in the hope of doing some more effective damage. Still I thought it worth bringing up, as it is doing the rounds. They still don't come up with anything very imaginative, new or convincing, fortunately. Or is it just that I have become hardened?

You just download that stuff P2P. Better still- use Linux/Sourceforge as you probably know.Smile How do I know a scam is a scam? Because if it was true I would be the first in the queue.You know the usual rule, " If it is too good ..."
The second one is:- " If Began is not there........." Razz Razz
