I got a message from tis hitsonline site that I registered with last year, part of my love for music. In the last week a received a message that read:
It's my kid's pc. I showed him the message. He says to just delete it. He has XP and they don't target older OS's like his. They target the newer ones like Vista. I don't appreciate threats like this and it doesn't ring legit, but I don't have the savvy to know for sure. Whaddya think?From: Robert Taylor
