Hi tilly :).

What I don't understand is why are people viewing those posts as even the few automatic bots will only account for a few of the views (unless someone simply keeps 'viewing' the posts).

All gone. Leo I think the first in the count of views is the poster themselves because the default action is to show the thread you posted in. I have to view them to get rid of them especially if its in an existing thread.

I think its worth repeating advice given before given the current headline news even if you open the thread don't click on any link or the pictures. The pictures can disguise a link themselves.

I agree Leodian. after all these Russian and Thailand Adverts offering Thai lasses and Russian Brides about 18 years old, plus Free Viagra, It's a load of nonsense. ( Anyway just in case i have cashed in my Pension for Roubles and Thai currency which incidentally is
called Thai Baht so i could take her Rambling on Ilkley Moor. ( I am already rambling at my age )

On Google / Yahoo etc. this morning there is a warning concerning a lookalike card put through your door purporting to be from the Post Office which ass you to call a number. this card it seems it is white and red squared, extremely similar to the P.O.s card but without the Logo. phoning this number then costs you £45. It seems quite a lot of people have already been conned with this ruse.

I think the most dangerous ones are where people get a call at home and are either tricked into returning the call or get a call and they are not disconected so both times are hooked up to a Premium call charge. Plus so many folks buy and sell things on line that sometimes they may not suspect anything if one of the 08 plus numbers turns up in their E. Mail.
One thing for sure is there are a lot of villians out there looking for ways to separate us from our hard earned cash.
