Beware Gaddafi scam emails

Following the demise of the erstwhile Libyan Dictator, Colonel Gaddafi, we can be sure that there will be an explosion of scam emails. These are likely to take the form of promising you explicit photos or videos of the tyrant's last moments.

We saw such emails in the wake of Saddam Hussein's capture and following Osama Bin Laden's death.

Obviously any email attachments or links to web sites won't serve up gruesome pictures, but they will be likely to install viruses on to your computer.

Don't fall for these simple cybercrime scams!
