LL had posted this

Plus there are other posts about it in  the forum.

 Bottom line is to follow all the advice about avoiding scammers anywhere on the Internet, including SL.

Speaking of scams i recently received an IM by something or someone called catwaibentoheads, sending me an update for Catwa Bento Heads, it was the V2.3. Since I don't own any Catwa Head I discarded it. But now it has happened again. Could this be a scam?

Yes my friend got it to, she even was curious enough to open it in a noscript sandbox (don't do it at home, kids, leave that stuff to the weird programmers in the basement er professionals) and it contains SURPRISE! a no mod script you could not read... (now who would have supsected that one?)

file an abuse report with a screenshot with item properties on the accout of last owner (who sent it to you, right click last owner and select report to do so) Now here's the bad catch: last owner could be another victim, when you wear the item it could as well (owner now is you, remember?) send out replicas of itself to all around you...
