I was on this website one day in February and at the bottom of my screen on the toolbar, something popped up. It said, "thank you for choosing..." it had a woman's face beside it. I though it was just a pop-up, though they are usually blocked. I didn't think anything of it. I right clicked on it to close it. When I went to turn my computer off, I noticed a new icon on the desktop--the woman's face with the word sex under it. I right clicked on it to delete it. It said that would only delete the short cut. I don't know that much about computers so when my husband got home, he deleted it from the programs. Today I received my telephone bill and there was a $38 charge for a long distance phone call. I called the phone company and this charge was for a porn internet site--the one that popped up that day. I never went to the site--I was on cakecentral.com when it popped up. If it hadn't happened when I was using the computer, I would say"Sure it just popped up!" but I know exactly when it happened. Has anyone else had this problem? The phone company says it's a legitimate charge and we'll have to pay. I can't figure out any way to contact these people.
