    The same thing happened a couple of days ago, but thankfully, I was around and got rid of it within seconds. Multi spam like that usually only comes from Asian accounts and to be honest, it's rather rare, although two times in a week is worrying.

    Yes!

    right where I was
    They prosecuted a trio in ohio who had a room full of servers sending spam to people round the clock in some sort of massive spam for hire monstrosity. They got big boy time for it like 25 years a person. It's big business apparently its worth it to someone to send out a million boner pill ads in every language of the world and try to steal from any sucker who responds. What a business.

    I don't think anyone on the board is dumb enough to be phisihed on here but it should be known, don't click on a link if you don't really know where it goes. Especially if you never log out of google, facebook, etc

    Thank you all for the concern and suggestions. The night I got home their were remedies put in place as Sharp had mentioned and they seem to be working (knock on virtual wood). Aside from Shaggy we have a good tech guy on hand that is been really good at checking in on problems and finding solutions. I can see the additions he's added when taking care of the busy work on my end. So that should be yet another step forward for now. :)
