    Nothing here. We get the odd lot from places like Stormfron trying to flog off their iPad 2's and junk like that but nothing out of ordinary!

    Lots of HMRC and Paypal ones and UPS, Sophos blocks most of them but on mobile devices and home machines it is a worry. I send each one to connect2education, hopefully when Office 365 comes this won't be a problem.

    We get the HMRC and bank ones most of the time. There is a new one doing the rounds, one about blood results linking to cancer.
