Spam Messages being sent to Family Historians

Peter Calver's latest "Lost Cousins" Newsletter contains a long article on scam emails he has been receiving which is well worth reading. Have you been infected with a virus, and are all your friends being sent emails which invite them to open a link to a web site which undoubtedly will infect their computer .... In the last couple of weeks I have received a number of messages which ask me to look at a web site - and of course I haven't done so. So read Peter's article and if you have opened one of these emails and clicked on the link gte your computer checked out and change any relevant passwords.
