    Never open one of these emails because the moment you do, you have to let them in and they will lock up your computer. To prevent this from happening, immediately unplug your computer from the wall (do not use your regular signout method...it will take too long. JUST UNPLUG IMMEDIATELY.

    THEY MIGHT EVEN OPEN WITH "YOUR COMPUTER IS AT RISDK, CALL THIS NUMBER RIGHT AWAY...DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTER..." don't fall for it. Unplug your computer from the power source and wait for about 1-2 hours.
