Man, I tell you that's just horrible for people who aren't that computer saavy and will actually open the attachment.

Like the older folks who just want to read their e-mails and stuff and maybe they don't even know about these kinds of things (sigh). lol my parents are like that, but I sure have them setup pretty securely on thier PC's and have warned them about these kinds of things.
 
i usually put my email in an extra folder in yahoo or msn then forget about for 4 -6 months then actually look at it
will keep an eye out for it
