PLEASE READ — COMPUTER VIRUS & SCAM
If you turn your computer on and a screen pops up stating your computer has been locked (and your webcam is on) until you make a Green Dot payment of $300 in 48hrs — DO NOT PAY IT!!!
First of all, your computer will not be entirely locked; only that particular user account that you use most. I was still able to use my laptop by logging on under the Administrator user account instead of my personalized user account.
The screen will have the Dept. of Homeland Security logo in the top, left-hand corner, and just below that, in all caps it will say ICE — Something about internet or cyber crimes & the left-hand side will list alleged, probably violations as to why your computer has been locked. The bottom of the screen will list places where you can purchase the Green Dot card or whatever.
I called Homeland Security today @ 202-282-2800 and reported this to them. They are aware of it and confirmed its definitely a scam. I was told its a virus called RANSOM-WARE and its triggered by certain websites that may suddenly or temporarily become un-secured; even popular sites such as Facebook and YouTube, etc… The best way to have the virus removed is by having a professional computer technician remove it.

LEAVE A COMMENT FOR ME NOW!!!
I think this one is self-explanatory. Just wanted to share a few of my favorite songs with you guys, so listen and comment with some of your favs, and I just may check them out!
1. Emeli Sande’ – “Next To Me” – I first saw heard of her and saw her sing this song on Jay Leno a while back & I immediately fell in love with it, and googled her, and now I’m a fan!
2. Beyonce’ ft. Jay-Z – “Drunk In Love” – I love this grittier, more seductive Beyonce’, its a side of her she doesn’t usually show. I think she got her Rihanna-swag going on in this one!
3. Janelle Monae ft. Miguel – “Primetime” – This one just has a real sultry groove & feel to it!
4. Master P ft. Howie T – “It’s A Jungle Out Here” – That’s right, Master P is back! I love this song! Makes me instantly bob my head! So all you No Limit fans need to check out is new album, “The Gift”. It’s a hit! He’s the same ol’ Master P, but then again, he isn’t. The album’s pretty damn good! Check it out!
5. Areatha Franklin – “Ain’t No Way” – Ok, y’all know I’m die-hard, old school Motown to the heart, so I HAD to throw this in here! This song makes me feel some kind of way! What can I say?–It’s Aretha Franklin!
Ok, well, there’s my playlist. . .for now. Tell me what you think and share your favs!
