Scam E-mail Sends Malicious Software to Recipients' Computers

Scam E-mail Sends Malicious Software to Recipients' Computers

In recent weeks, a phony e-mail claiming to come from the IRS has been circulating in large numbers. The subject line of the e-mail often states that the e-mail is a notice of underreported income. The e-mail may contain an attachment or a link to a bogus Web page directing taxpayers to their "tax statement." In either case, when the recipient opens the attachment or clicks on the link, they download a Trojan horse-type of virus to their computers.

Malicious code (also known as malware), of which the Trojan horse is but one example, can take over the victim’s computer hard drive, giving someone remote access to the computer, or it could look for passwords and other information and send them to the scammer. The scammer will then use whatever information they gather to commit identity theft, gain access to bank accounts and more.

The IRS does not send unsolicited e-mails to taxpayers about their tax accounts. Anyone who receives an unsolicited e-mail claiming to come from the IRS should avoid opening any attachments or clicking on any links. People can report suspicious e-mails they receive which claim to come from the IRS to a mailbox set up for this purpose, Those who believe they may already be victims of identity theft should find out what do by going to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission's Web site,

How to Maintain a Friendship

When you really build up a friendship you'll want to make sure it stays forever. So here are some tips for maintaining that relationship with your friend!

1. Appreciate your friends. Friends are like being on the toilet... you can dump on them, and everything you dump will eventually flush away.
2. Make sure it's two-sided. You don't want to be the only one trying to make the friendship work out. The other person has to do the same, or else all your work would be for nothing.
3. Show interest.Make your friend feel special. Again with the two-sided thing, it shouldn't be all about them.
4. Have fun together.
5. Trust each other.
6. Cry together. Be there for your friend, and if they feel the same way about you, they will be there for you.
7. Support each other through good times and bad. Even if they aren't very popular, stick by their side. They will truly appreciate that.
8. Understand that in every friendship there will be arguments. But it doesn't mean that the friendship is over.
9. Keep in touch. This applies especially if your friend lives far away.

When you have an argument, don't fight or insult each other; just talk about it!Always have patience in your friend's fault,it takes time to do the right thing. A true friendship is something that can stand the test of time. Simply because you haven't spoken or met your friend in years, does not mean that you are friends no longer.
