I was browsing the net when my keyboard locked up!!!! A very
official message on the screen told me I had been watching and
had in my possession Child Pornography! Scared the heck out of
me. Further reading said I would not be charged if I remitted
the fine of $500.00. I was to get a prepaid Pay-Pal from one of
several places and remit (via E-Mail) within 24 hours, (there
was even a clock ticking away the seconds until I was really
busted. When I got to thinking about the event I realized no
official agency would do such a thing and further perused the
E-mail, my heart stopped pounding. I could see me in handcuffs
being led away to the Pen. Ain't funny at all.
The notice said Suddenlink (my server) had records and was
cooperating. I called Suddenlink and they said they did not know
anything about it and referred me to someone else.. To make this
shorter I had to go to a professional before I could get it off
my computer and while I was at it, got a hi-powered Malware and a
I expect that if I were a Pedophile and had child porn on my
computer I might have been terrified and sent the money.
I did more checking and I recommend website
IC-3 for more
information and perhaps do more research.
