Recently there are much malware spreading PM to direct you to link and download stuff. After ther NovaCoin wave of PM, now it LiteCoin. Please be cautious that if they find you in PM and direct you to random site and download zip/exe they are most probably malware.

Please DO NOT attempt to open them, we are getting more and more malware Pmming guys recenly and would like you to be cautious.There are no free lunch on this world. :)

Below is a fresh PM received a few minutes ago
Hi Jonsi,
Yes, it is encrypted. Just download the wallet and submit password: 58Charlene56 to open it. I have 327 LTC in it. If you got success I'll transfer another one.

Here is the link:

It is labour day but doesn't mean that mods are all asleep or dead. By the way if you are a reputable member in the dafault trust list. Please give him a neg trust to alert people. Thanks a bunch :)
