"The messages look similar to the real emails that users may receive from friends who are already members of Google+. However, clicking on the links will not take you to the new social network, but instead take you to a pharmacy website set up to sell the likes of Viagra, Cialis and Levitra. The spammers are no doubt hoping that the email will be too hard to resist for many people eager to see Google's new social network, although just how many users will be tempted to buy drugs online is a mystery."
Figured it would not be too long until some tried to scam using Google+. I wonder what the emails look like because if they seem to be written from a close friend a lot of people I know would just click it.
"I have the power!!"
Not surprising at all. Spammers will use any way they can think of to spread their crap across your screen. It's like crap jam on toast.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
LOL, crap jam on toast? At first that sounded gross... but then I started to picture what the would look like, and I thought of penut butter on toast. And that made me hungry... so now I want some peanut butter on toast... and i'm gonna start calling it crap jam on toast.
acarzt:i'm gonna start calling it crap jam on toast
Please, don't let me effect you in such a twisted way!,..............
Every social service will attract a few spammers here and then.
Not surprising at the least.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
