    Hey Everyone -

    I clicked on this link to see what would happen...

    johnandlisagiveback dot com

    Supposedly it's a scam but I already visited the page. I didn't fill out anything and it was a blank white screen...

    Do you think I could have messed up my MacBook (got a virus/spyware/etc) by visiting that website? Here's some articles on it.

    To be safe, and ensure no one else clicks on it, I removed the link from the post. If people really want to visit that site, then they can put the wording together and go there.

    Thanks!

    Has anyone checked it out? I wanted to make sure nothing could occur by visiting that site in Safari on my MacBook.
