    My friend Lea, K4VWD was trying to log onto QRZ with a new password provided by QRZ since his log on was not working. Right in the middle of attempting to log in, his computer locked up with the famous Microsoft 'your computer is locked, call this number' malware. He had not opened any emails, his comp was working fine until the QRZ attempt. We wondered if there is a QRZ spoof site he got on and that is why his original log in was not working anymore. Anybody have any issues with similar?

    I'm betting it wasn't the actual QRZ site they attempted to log into.

    Hello CHARLES A LIBERTO, W4MEC, nice to meet you, :)

    As far as I am concerned your friend EUGENE L SALTER K4VWD had not asked for a new password recently :confused::confused::confused::confused: . A new password had been sent at K4VWD@***.com

    Also, remember to update your navigator.

    Let me know if this works or you need further assistance.

    Have a nice day.

    Lea was almost definitely tricked into visiting a spoof website.
