This Map shows the current DDOS attacks on networks. this is one of the top reasons you find it difficult to see some websites and have “slow internet” issues. Companies have to defend against this, while giving you the ability to see the website. This is a problem, and you may think “it’s the companies problem”, but it can and has happened to residential owners as well. Make sure you are not being attacked by hackers. If you are unsure, please email me to find out more info firstname.lastname@example.org

It’s my urgent need For a foreign partner that made me to contact you for this transaction.I am Rezwan Mirza working with First Golf Bank here in Dubai(U.A.E) I write to contact you over a very important business transaction which will be of our interest and benefit to our both families.
In 2007,one Mr. Weimin, whose surname is same as yours and has your country in his file as his place of origin, made a fixed deposit for 36 months, valued at $26,700,000.00 with my bank. I was his account officer before I rose to the position of Managing Director. The maturity date for this deposit contract was 27th of September 2010.Sadly Mr.Weimin was among the death victims in the September 2009 earthquake in Indonesia that left over 1,200 people dead while he was there on business trip.
Since the last quarter of 2010 until today, the management of my bank have been finding means to reach him so as ascertain if he will roll over the Deposit or have the contract sum withdrawn. When I discovered that this will happen, I have tried to think up a procedure to preserve this fund and use the proceeds for business.
Some directors here have been trying to find out from me the information about this account and the owner, but I have kept it closed because, I know that if they become aware that Mr Weimin is late, they will corner the funds for themselves. Therefore, am seeking your co-operation to present you as the one to benefit from his fund at his death since you have the same name, so that my bank head quarters will pay the funds to you. I have done enough inside bank arrangement and you only have to put in your details into the information network in the bank computers and reflect you as his next of kin.
If you concur with this proposal, I intend for you to retain 50% of the funds while 50% shall be for me. Kindly forward your response to me immediately through email below:

Don’t be a victim.. report this crap… when you decline, then click the block, and report as spam boxes..
Let’s be clear on one thing, I.T. personnel are more important now that ever before! You do your job, let us do ours. We specialize is keeping your equipment updated, safeguarded from cyber attacks, and keep CIPA and HIPPA and a slew of others safe and within governmental recommendations for you!
My wife just got a letter from a doctor whose computer failure has caused major havoc- they state that no information was lost and the information is secure, I’d like to know how they know that for 100% accuracy. Their computer failure—-WHY??? The I.T. specialist (if both parties did their work right) should be there once a quarter minimum to check backups, clean out the machines, check for updates, both software and hardware related, implement procedural updates with regards to governmental advisories and all this for less than a new computer a year.
Let’s put it another way, do you change your oil in your car, or buy a new motor? sounds rude right, it’s the exact same deal, a friend of mine uses cars brakes instead of oil, same difference.. It’s called PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE for a reason.I’ve been self employed and doing these common sense maintenance procedures since 1999, this is not the first letter we have received and i keep them all to show everyone why it is so important to hire someone like myself. At $35.00 per hour, can you afford not to hire a professional to maintain your equipment so you do not have the same problematic issues this one doctor’s office did?

We all instinctively know that fedex and ups will not try to contact us when a package cannot be delivered..they leave notes on the door.. Therefore please do yourself a favor–do not open the zip files attached to emails from them!!! first of all check the return sender–you see it will not match anything to do with fedex, and ups, and if you want to help stop cyber attacks and bullying– contact the website itself and let them know they have been spoofed..
Every year I start my company by thinking; “am I going to make it?” or “Is it all worth it?”; but even after 15 years it is a resounding Yes I choose to continue. The computer service, the photography, the cinematography, the network management, credit card processing all to assist my clients in any way i can. I look forward to assisting your companies growth in 2015 just as you let me do in 2014!
In this day and age where the hackers are not just trying to get your credit card information, but lock you out of your own computer, download these great free-wares and help keep your system clean. These are NOT the sole answer but they can sure help fight the fight.
if you decide to pay for each of them, the “paid” version does add to the program, but it is definitely not a necessity
