I was doing some searching for Sim related information in the net. Some one asked a question, so I was checking out some information for them. I do have protection that warns me before I go into a site that there is an issue with it, and I avoid those like the plague.
I found one link that looked like it was dealing with the subject of what I was looking for, so I clicked on it. My computer was directed to some official government looking web page, and the next thing it was accusing me of downloading some pirated music, and that my browser would now be locked up and I would be forced to pay this really huge fine. I have NEVER in my life ever downloaded any music, that I have not paid for. I have NEVER downloaded any movies or anything else, unless I have paid for.
To get away from this, I had to completely shut my computer down, by pushing the power button. I did run a virus scan and nothing was found. Does anyone know what the bleep just happened? Right now I'm nervous as a chicken that is cornered by something that wants to eat it.
