This showed up on my facebook page---apparently "posted" by a friend---I saw the image---clicked on it---thought better----closed out of it---- I thought how or why would the BBC have a picture that our "Seals" and government had and had not posted---and just after I clicked on it---I thought "don't go there." Why do you want to see such an image? Anyway--My AVG virus runs on a regular basis---the "run" after my clicking and then unclicking---- showed that it "quaranteed" a trojan virus. Had to be this-- glad I closed out of it and glad that my AVG caught it and glad that I thought twice about seeing it.

So glad for you, Sandybill2.
Although I think most of us are vigilant about these scams, I am sure that in the frenzy of these particular circumstances,
some sadly may have rushed forward.
