Lots of Scams going around

I have been getting a lot of e-mails lately from people phishing for information from me. Whenever you get an e-mail from EBay, Google, Paypal, your bank, etc., DO NOT click on the link in the e-mail to go to the site that the e-mail is allegedly coming from! Instead, if you are concerned about the contents of the e-mail, go directly to their website and login or call them on the phone if they are local. Again, DO NOT click on the link in the e-mail. Surf safely!

Warning! Fake Software Upgrade!

I received an e-mail today urging me to get a free upgrade to Adobe Acrobat Reader 2012. This software is NOT real and I would suspect it is some sort of scam to either infect your computer or steal your information. The latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader is Acrobat Reader X (10.1.2). Please don’t be fooled by this or any similar e-mail.
