The worrying thing is that despite all warnings about such emails, people still insist on opening them and, even worse, open attachments and click on links.

That's because some people are just stupid!

Still, they know where to come when it all goes wrong!

a dont think "stupid" would be the right word for it!

people with little or no knowledge on these subjects, think it sounds to good to be true, or are just curious click on the attachments!
And there the people the virus writer's seem to target with these emails!
