WARNING! Anyone Selling Parts Must Read!!!
This was posted by Godsmack74 in the Anandtech Forums:

This is a new and recent trend thats spreading where a buyer contacts you trying to purchase your laptop/desktop, etc and wants you to run FRAPS on your PC to benchmark it. They kindly give you a link to a registered version of FRAPS and tell you to run it. DO NOT DOWNLOAD! This will install a trojan on your PC that is also a keylogger and attempts to get your paypal password etc.
See a thread regarding this:
I was contacted in several forums about this by members wanting me to run this program, dont fall for it.

Wow, nice find - I can't possibly fall for that even if they tried, as I've already got my own licensed copy of fraps! :P Who's got the last laugh now? hahaha :lol:

I hate thief scum. I would just kill them if it was permitted. Thiefs in the middle ages were publicaly executed. That had some deterrence.
