A couple of warnings from readers

I cannot verify these warnings, Neither can I ignore them. When readers email me with these warnings, I will always pass them on

Computer Virus Warning

You should be alert during the next days:

Do not open any message with an attached filed called “Invitation” regardless of who sent it. It is a virus that opens an Olympic Torch which “burns” the whole hard disc C of your computer. This virus will be received from someone who has your e-mail address in his/her contact list, that is why you should send this e-mail to all your contacts. It is better to receive this message 25 times than to receive the virus and open it. If you receive a mail called “invitation”, though sent by a friend, do not open it and shut down your computer immediately. This is the worst virus announced by CNN, it has been classified by Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever. This virus was discovered by McAfee yesterday, and there is no repair yet for this kind of virus. This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the Hard Disc, where the vital information is kept.

Noranda Shopping Centre Con

I was approached yesterday afternoon around 3.30pm in the Coles parking lot at Noranda by two males, asking what kind of perfume I was wearing.
Then they asked if I’d like to sample some fabulous scent they were willing to sell me at a very reasonable rate. I probably would have agreed had I
not received an email some weeks ago, warning of this scam. The men continued to stand between parked cars, I guess to wait for someone else to
hit on. I stopped a lady going towards them, I pointed at them and told her about how I was sent an email at work about someone walking up to you at the malls, in parking lots, and asking you to sniff perfume that they are selling at a cheap price.

THIS IS NOT PERFUME – IT IS ETHER!

When you sniff it, you’ll pass out and they’ll take your wallet, your valuables, and heaven knows what else. If it were not for this email, I probably would have sniffed the “perfume”, but thanks to the generosity of an emailing friend, I was spared whatever might have happened to me, and wanted to do the same for you.

These guys hit Sydney and Melbourne 2 weeks ago and now they are doing it in Perth and Queensland.
