Dear abuse team, please help to close these offending portals sites(1) so far. This goes on to show reports from their site and also showing reports from www.bfk.de . Notice they…

Windows days are numbered

Written by
The days of Windows are numbered Windows XP was the peak and as we go forward Microsoft will slowly destroy it's OS. The first blow came when Microsoft clearly disregarded it's main source of income. When it put out Vista, which had no backward compatibility to XP, this was a major mistake. It took years to develop it's strong hold in the corporate market.

Having placed an Ad in a popular Classifieds website, which I will not mention, I have gotten so many responses that are either phishing attempts, Scams, Spam or ones that are trying to spread a virus by giving links to infected websites.

Free Directory days seem to be over.

Written by
