I imagine this link will download software to my computer without my knowledge.

Can anyone give me some more information on how these work and what damage the victim will incur and what benefit the spammer will achieve?

Thansk guys.

P.s: feel free to move this to the relevant forum if i have posted in the wrong place ... .again Smile

As far as I can see, the link merely opens a youtube video.

It's just junk mail.

It doesn't matter how paranoid you are, they'll still get you.

I too clicked the link, running your cursor over it shows its a Youtube link. It shows a bunch of Star Trek stuff for sale. The only iffy bit is that there is no way of knowing if this is true, or emotional blackmail boll8cks:

So it may still be a scam, buyer beware.

if you ever get a youtube video link and are suspicious about it, just copy the last part of the link after the question mark.
