Re: Fake email from American Airlines
They are also running that looks like this.... Internal Revenue Service - Last Notice Tax notice, The analysis of the last annual calculations of your fiscal activity has indicated that you are entitled to receive a tax refund of $382.34 Please submit a request of the tax refund and a processing of the request will take 7-14 days. A tax refund can be delayed by different reasons. For instance submission of invalid records or sending after the deadline. Please find the form of your tax refund attached and fill out it and send a report. Yours sincerely, IRS. Tax_Rufund.zip attached file is same size as the first American Airlines e-mail I got.

Re: Fake email from American Airlines
I got this e-mail was worried about identity theft. Clicked on it and knew i shouldn't have immediately. Norton caught some of the problem, but not all of it three days after opening that damn e-mail i'm screwed. Now my lap top is fried :(... it wiped out everything from the start menu, emptied all of the program file folders disabled task manager, sends false critical error messages and urges you to buy some bs pc system scanner. Not even going to bother trying to wipe up this mess. going to restore from safe mode and then scan from safe mode with anti virus software. Anyone have other suggestions?

Get a Mac and not worry or fuss with this stuff anymore :-)
Short of that, if the "restore from safe mode" doesnt do the trick then a full nuke and reinstall should do the trick!

Ȕber lololol at the mac user. Macs are just as much of a target as actual comnputers. Even more so for scams as iProducts are just expensive shop fronts these days.

Re: Fake email from American Airlines

We just bought airline tickets, but not to this destination, so thought I got hacked somehow with online credit card info. I saw it on my phone, and since the laptop was right in front of me double checked on the computer. Clicked before I realized it wasn't addressed to a name, and immediately started hitting the "close window 'x'." Running late for work, in a hurry not thinking! It downloaded the zip file, but I'm not making the mistake of clicking on it to open.

My McAfee is scanning a normal scheduled scan (good timing), what else should I do? Will deleting be enough, or should I choose to "Shred with McAfee?" I'm usually SO good about watching for this stuff---ARGHHH!

Any help will be most appreciated :)
