E-mail demanding £50 for visiting their website

  Border View 13:45 24 Nov 2008

I dont have all the details so please bear with me. An elderly friend was last week sent an e-mail demanding the payment of £50 because he had been on their web site.

I dont know anymore than that. He hasnt been on the internet since because it scared him so much.

I seem to recall a very lengthy posting about similar cases and when people didnt pay up they started to get pop ups demanding payment and computers started to freeze up. Can anyone please give me a link to that posting so that I can read through and see if its the same situation.

Your help would be appreciated.

Many thanks VoG. Will tick as resolved. I have the feeling though that I havent heard the last of this one.

Kind regards.
