These guys have sneaky ways to infect your computers.

I got an email allegedly from Wachovia Bank telling me that they were
suspending my account and that I had to go to some website to unsuspend
it. I didn't go there, but if I did, I'm sure I would have contracted some
nefarious malware. The tip off: I never had an account with Wachovia Bank.

Be careful out there!
