So where should you go when you get an email that elicits the alarm in your head to see if it’s true?   Well, apparently this scam (after running for over a year) raised such a stink, that they removed the adware from their site: http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&articleId=9059980&intsrc=hm_list
