Yep thats the best way, I opened one as a business tool as recommended but the accounts have been hacked twice IN THREE MONTHS great name for it -TWATTER. I certainly would not use this otherwise they appear to be very slack on security levels. I regularly dont accept links to people as I dont trust the process yet it is desireable for some work ahhhhhhhhhh

It must be the season for scams- another one just came through on company e mail account addressed personally to me thanking me for ordering a camera and hard drive. Company being YesAsia.com for a nice 500

No details of payment but asking you to update the order through entering areas attached to e mail. Suggest anyone who gets an e mail from YesAsia.com ignores it and spams it.

On the e mail Jimbo , did they head it with your name, they had mine but no other detail.

Microsoft scam calls also to family members this week which we think came from calling a BT fault service report, which suggests the overseas fault centre managing BT calls is passing details on
