McAfee has an interesting Viral ad campain going.

So, it's called Stop H* Commerce.  I am pretty sure they made up the name H* Commerce, but the whole thing seems to be the story of this lady in Oregon who got scammed out of $400,000.  I have to say right off the bat that this is a fear campaign.  They are trying to scare people into buying software, and I think that's less than noble.  On the other hand, if you aren't gullible enough to give someone your bank account information, and then pay them money... then pay them repeatedly to transfer that same money from one bank account to another... then keep doing this over and over again, then you won't be scammed out of $400,000.

Anyway, the story is kind of interesting, and the next episode will be released on June 30th.  I recommend you watch it, but at the same time I hope you don't get scared by it and go buy the software.  Honestly the software isn't worth it.

Anyway... It's time for me to go home!

Later,
