Default Hi Jacked - Harry, what do I do?

Hello Harry,

I receive the following message and I am not sure what to do. I greatly appreciate the message from the fellow Staker, but do I need to delete my account and come up with a new user name, or can you please send me in the proper direction as what to do?

Thank you,

Jeff

Hello Jeff,

Got an email from you today offering me and Edwards owner's manual in pdf form and all I have to do is "click on the attachment". Also got the same generous "offer" from "Mr. _____", word for word. It is obvious to me that the emails were phishing scams using your names.
I think the Nigerians, or Russians or some ner do wells have hijacked your computer. Just my thoughts, might wanna change yer pass word, but you should check it out. Heck, they mighta hijacked mine too but McAffee ran a complete scan and found nada as far as spyware.

Sorry Jeff........didn't see this till just now.
I recommend downloading, updating and running these two free programs.

1: http://www.malwarebytes.org/

2: http://www.superantispyware.com/download.html

Check for updates for both programs, go OFF LINE (this is very important as a lot of malware will "call home" if there is an attempt to remove it and prevent its removal) and run both programs using the thorough option.

Let us know how things pan out.
