Fraud and dealing with STRANGERS

by thinkactlove / April 6, 2005 3:28 AM PDT

Ebay works for the most part because most people want to be fair and enjoy the liberty of internet/ebay.

When things go bad, I got email asking me to update my ebay account. This was "phishing" were the internet address was not ebay so someone got a lot of information about me.

NO ONE cares enough to do anything about it. It is probably not easy to go after this phishing. You have to protect yourself. Similar to walking on the street. If you need the police. It's TOO late.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
