These attempted scams, believe it or not, are still going. Right now, I am advising friend ( foreign ) who has been sent bank draft for an amount far in excess of that for work he's agreed to do.He was then asked by email to send the surplus by Western Union to a British address. The draft is currently acting as a beer mat in his flat, guards have been notified.

I'm surprised we haven't seen a major iPhone virus at this stage - well apart from the ones on jailbroken devices.

Jailbroken - means when you hack your device so that you can bypass DRM, install unapproved applications, etc.

"Nokia celebrated 40yrs. Your mobile number has won 900,000 pounds in the Nokia Awards. claimcode: EMAJN.claim your prize send email to"

One way to avoid being ensnared in these scams is to roll the mouse over the text-link to check what website address it is pointing to. If it's different from anything associated with the company it claims to be representing then you know it's a scam. I get these all the time from phoney bank-emails, such as fake Bank of Ireland emails warning you you need to re-enter your account details and pressuring you to click on a link that will take you to a submission form.
