    was told that account had been compromised and that someone was sending out fake emails from my account. I think that this is a con to get me to switch on my laptop so they can talk me through getting this sorted. Thought you should know someone is making these claims, I cannot give a phone number as it was withheld

    I have a couple colleagues who make a living (well that's not all they do!) cleaning up the aftermath of these calls. It is a scam!

    It's the Killer Squirrel. One of the all time great movies. Both my sons, now in there 40's, could repeat verbatim the entire movie.
