Got one of these on several of my email accounts today (not including the one which is used for Facebook). Definitely a scam, and IDed by both my anti-virus apps as a Nasty.

I wouldn't bother my lists about this sort of thing, but several of my clients---fairly tech-savvy ones, at that---have been hit by this today. While I enjoy getting paid to troubleshoot and resolve computer problem, I don't want any of my friends to go through what these clients had to put up with.

Be careful.
It's a dangerous world out there!

From the outset, Bonaparte guarded against any such recurrence.By
careful collection of taxes he increased the revenue of the state. By
rigid economy, by the severe punishment of corrupt officials, and by the
practice of obliging people whose lands he invaded to support his
armies, he reduced the public expenditures. The crowning achievement of
his financial readjustments was the establishment (1800) of the Bank of
France, which has been ever since one of the soundest financial
institutions in the world. Another grave problem which Bonaparte
inherited from the Revolution was the quarrel between the state and the
Roman Catholic Church. He was determined to gain the political support
of the large number of conscientious French Catholics who had been
alienated by the harsh anti-clerical measures of the revolutionaries.
