MSN Contact FRAUD?
Having been spectator of this twice, I can say that this is worth a warning.
WHAT IS IT
At first, it may not sound nothing too serious : Someone added you in his/her MSN and MSN sends you its pop-up about it. You accept.
WHAT DOES THE CONTACT DO?
At first, it will start a simple "hi" then asks you "How are you". Nothing out of the ordinary at this point. Then it presents itself. It WILL ALWAYS be a woman's name. Always.
Also, it will ignore anything you say. Anything. At this point, if it was someone real, it would have answered, right?
After that, it offers cyber-3timesX (webcams) and finally posts a link to some 3timesX site...
At this point, you want to ditch the contact
WHAT DO YOU DO
Simple. First, ask questions like "Where did you get my MSN info?" Insist. If it goes no where (no answers), don't click the links, close the conversation and delete&ban contact.
Credit card fraud, identity thetfs, computer viruses & trojans may lead ahead.
WHERE DID THEY GET MY E-MAIL
Probably from e-mail scanning robots and then, those who run the MSN robots bought the list to try to attract men to those sites.
(04:18) Deon : hi (04:18) Lebon14 : hi (04:18) Deon : hi how are you today? (04:18) Lebon14 : who are you? where did you get my e-mail?

(04:20) Lebon14 : WHERE THE HELL DID YOU GET MY E-MAIL (04:20) Deon : well since its free the law that u gotta be 18 (nudity involved), u have to sign up with a credit card for age verification! BUT .. Once you are inside, just clikc on "Webcams" let me know what name you use to sign in with so I know it is you babe! http://www.***.com/vicky fill out the bottom of the page then fill out the next page as well and u can see me live for free! (04:20) Lebon14 : SCAM AHOY. (04:20) Lebon14 : BANNED.
Hope this highlight anyone with this type of attack.
