Viruses, Ransomware, Trojans and unwanted software like adware and browser hijackers aren’t the only security hazards that you may encounter online. In many cases, there’s no need for a shady or malicious piece of software to enter your computer for you to become the victim of some insidious and nefarious cyber-criminal scheme. Sometimes, all that it takes for this to happen is that you fall for the false claims in some obscure spam phishing e-mail. And, trust us, schemes that use this type of tactics are very, very common. Thousands of web users receive fake and misleading spam messages each and every day, the sole purpose of which is to lure them or scare them into sending money to the people behind the scheme for no actual reason. If, for instance, you’ve recently received an e-mail that claims there’s a Trojan Horse infection inside your machine that is lying dormant and would get activated in case you don’t pay a ransom to the blackmailer, your first reaction will likely be one out of the following two: you may disregard this message knowing it’s just another piece of spam or you may get intimidated and worried about the actual possibility that there may indeed be an insidious Trojan within your system. In case your reaction is the latter, you may eve consider making the requested payment. Now, both options are understandable – the important thing here is to not pay the money regardless of how you feel about the unnerving message. Even if you are afraid there may be a Trojan in your computer, instead of paying the money, a much better option would be to take the matters into your own hands and try to clean your computer from any potential hidden threats. In this regard, we have added a guide for the removal of the insidious “This is my final warning” infection that is currently on the loose so that you can use it to ensure your machine’s safety.

Some more words about this type of nefarious e-mails schemes

Even if you have been consistently receiving such alarming and unnerving messages in your e-mail inbox, it’s all most likely nothing but a cyber-criminal scam. In nearly all instances of such spam e-mail campaigns, there’s actually no malware in the computer of the targeted users. Still, it’s important to not leave anything to chance which is why we once again advise you to not overlook the guide from this page. “This is my final warning” is indeed a serious software hazard of the Trojan Horse family and it’s certainly a malware program that you wouldn’t want to be present in your computer. This is why it’s still of significant importance that you make sure there is indeed nothing hidden in your system that may threaten its security. Also, for future safety, we advise you to never post your e-mail address or any other contact info about you on sites and pages that may be sketchy or unreliable as this makes it more likely for dishonest people to abuse this information and harass you in various ways.
