I would just like to warn everybody about this email. To me it's very distrubing. I was checking my email with my 10 year old son, and he notice one email, the subject line was "You have just won a Playstation2". He encouraged me to open it and when I did, it took me to a Yahoo page and said that I would be redirected in 10 seconds, I waited and was redirected. And then told me that I was to download this page to fill out, I did that and when I did, a sex 900 number was installed into my computer!! It was on my start menu, my desktop, my short cuts, I mean there was a pic of this crap everywhere. Of course I didn't connect. I had figured out what it was, but it was hard for me to tell my son that it was a crock. I just wanted to warn people with children. I have 6 screen names on AOL and this email has come to 4 of them so far.
