Troppo Cario - VERY BAD VIRUS

I get many scam emails every week. Here is one more I was emailed advising about a virus. Another reason I use a Mac and not Windows.

P.S. I thought it funny that the AVG virus scanner didn’t alert the person who forwarded this to me that what they were about to forward was indeed a scam.
