  1. it is your own fault, you should not click on adverts or anything that comes up and that looks promising….That is how they can hijack the computers, because of people are automaticly curious and will click on anything what seems interesting….and those people do not look at url or think at that time…

  2. I just got back after some people hijacked my computer & ordered me to pay $300.00 to get control back! Lucky for me my Daughter worked with a computer technician that was able to bypass me being locked out..Now I am back…Madder than HELL !!!! Beware of these P/C Terrorist !

  3. My ID was stolen from two main sources, DOD and BC/BS. I have spent a little over $15K to try and clean it up but to no avail
    They just keep-up racking up credit and outing my privet info.
