Rods thread below reminded me that I forgot to post this up the other day.
Another email scam doing the rounds ATM is the Uniform traffic ticket.
In fact it carries a VIRUS.
I guess some would open it without a second thought, especially those that travel through speed cameras constantly.
I run all my email accounts through Gmail, which has picked up at lest 4 of these a day over the last few days.
Just a heads up, please don't open the attachment.
Cheers guys, hope you have a great weekend & safe travels.

My wife picked up one called "Vista Antivirus 2012". It masquerades as a virus protection program, runs a test on your system, and gives a bogus report of virus found. You then have to buy their program and give your credit card details .... WARNING BELLS WERE RINGING !!

A quick google showed this thing to be malware.

Again a google will show how to remove it.

Hi Malcolm,

I got that as well without looking at emails. Asked my mate how I got ? He replied " these people can by pass your anti virus and email to attack your computer ". It's the Bussiness people of Russia who done it according to what he found when getting rid of it.
Cheers P&J
