Cyber crims hope to cash in on royal wedding

Written by Nick Farell


The sad thing is they are probably right
Cyber criminals are convinced that they will get the great unwashed to open their poison tipped emails if it has something to do with the UK royal wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton.

Internet security group Norton claims that online spam emails or dodgy websites promising juicy royal gossip, such as details of the wedding dress or photos of Prince William's bachelor party have already appeared. Norton said it's already found scams and examples of search engine poisoning for search such as "Royal Wedding Invitations", "Official Royal Wedding Merchandise", "Kate's Wedding Diet" and spam emails relating to copies of the royal wedding ring.

What is very sad is that people's lives are so pathetic that they want to get any information they can on two people, who represent an institution which has not been relavant to world politics for 200 years, spending a lot of public dosh on a blow out.

To make matters worse they are prepared to believe that others are so interested that they will be circulating pictures that are worthwhile looking at.

If I got a real invitation to the wedding I still wouldn't go, got more interesting things to do, also all the memorabilia is tack I expect 80 year old widows to buy

Dang people, lighten up a little, I certainly would hope no one gets scammed.

People just like escapism, whether it be games or gossip, sometimes it is fun to see how the rest of the world lives its life. Its about glamour, don't expect tech people to get it but you should at least find some respect for it. May help your relationships.

The diet pert made me lol. Man it never gets old, people will always let themselves get ripped off over new diets and all that shit.
Diets and fat loss has been the same since those royals were still relevant and will always be the same. Read a 50 year old book about it or Schwarzenegger's bible and you got what you need to know
