Yes Phil, it was sold by Amazon and packaging etc looked brand new/undamaged etc I did in fact format it before use but after drivers etc were automatically downloaded. With hindsight it was probably just a coincidence it all happened around the same time. I'll need to check on my wife's browsing history to see what dodgy sites she was visiting before she went to the banks site!  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:


Thanks for the reply.

Well I'm beginning to think my 'Free' USB wasn't such the bargain after all!


The day it arrived I plugged it into the computer and transferred a couple of films etc to it to test it on the TV. The next day Mrs Turvey went onto the computer to check the bank account etc and within a few minutes it became obvious something was amiss. Weird messages coming up and very slow. At around the same time (apparently) I got a couple of texts telling me to text back a number to make a payment for over £2000! Yeah right!


Anyway Mrs T had to go down to the bank to get things sorted and has had a phonecall back from the security dept of the bank confirming that our account had been hacked, or at least the attempt had been made.


So I've spent the last two days trying to clean up the computer of viruses and malware. I 'think' I'm getting there now but it's been a right royal pain in the Arris!!!! 


I'm not 100% sure it was the USB stick but I can't think of anything else out of the ordinary I've done recently that could have introduced the virus/malware ie no downloading of torrents etc


Lesson of the day? Scan EVERYTHING you plug into your computer!  :)

If I could afford to spend 30K on a Mustang I would buy a '65 and get free tax! :)

The truck I drive at work has nozzles actually built into the wipers. Could you do something similar?
