    I received this email 2 days ago and in my half asleep state opened the attachment on my android phone and then deleted the email, i have since received 2 more deleted without opening. I have Avg virus scan on my phone and its not picking anything up but Im still worried and scared now to log on to online banking, ebay etc. How can i be sure my phone doesn't have a virus? Thanks ~

    If you scanned your phone and nothing was detected, we can safely say your phone is ok. Scan your phone weekly and ensure that your antivirus software is updated daily. ~

    Any ideas how to get rid of it? I have downloaded various anti virus apps (Norton, Sophos and avg) and they don't seen to pick anything up when scanning, did that mean my phone is not infected? ~
