        Unfortunately it seems I was one of the many gullible victims of another
        hoax.  I'll put this one down to experience now.

        There are lots of these scam emails around, and they all have a similar
        theme. The email itself is a kind of virus, because it replicates by people
        resending it!

        Its better to ignore these sorts of emails in future, it seems.  The
        websites listed above advise us to ;
        "Take the high road and ignore it. Just assume that you've graduated from
        the newbie stage [of computer-usage experience]. Trust me, it will get
        forwarded plenty without your help and you can feel all the more smug for
        not having been so naive . If it helps, remember that a legitimate threat
        will be covered by the media, security vendors, and other expert sources.
        Not your daughter, your dentist, your boss. "
