Goodness knows how she did it. While taking these slideshow photos Hilda pressed goodness knows what on my camera. Software codes came up on the screen and the camera seized up. When I was setting up the photos for this post I found my first ever photo which I took years ago and should have been erased.
Over the weekend while blogging and googling, up popped this page seizing my laptop. It frightened the life out of me as it was a Guardia Civil page demanding €100 as it said I entered a banned website. Firstly I knew I didn’t and secondly I suspected this page to be false for if I had done something wrong there would be 100 police in riot gear at 5am taking away my equipment and me, not a simple demand for money.
Oh heck !! Am I now an unjustly accused criminal ? I unsiezed my laptop, cleaned it and immediately emailed the Guardia Civil Police who replied and told me that it was a virus called Ransomware and instructed me in how to get rid of the virus. On googling Ransomware there are similar ransom demands from the FBI and others.
If it happens to you DON’T pay up.
I live in a sleepy railway village in the mountains of southern Spain where nothing happens. Wrong !!!
