and like 4 that said contain encrypted message (i.e. The message cannot be represented in 7-bit ASCII encoding and has been sent as a binary attachment.) all with attachments. i also got one that said
"Are you a spammer? (I found your email on a spammer website!?!)"
along with an attachment.

fuckin bastards. this was through shroomery webmail account that i have only given to iBillCS.com and don't use for anything at all other than one transaction with iBill (not for porn or anything either) how did they get that address you think? and also they used the right isp (i.e. @myisp.net)?  that first one got my attention until i got half-way through and realized it how horrible the grammer was and that there was an attachment.

of course i didn't open any attachments and deleted all those emails :stoned:

I remember a few days ago a warning was out for a virus spread by an email pretending to be from the FBI.

The other is a clever trick to open a virus also.

Me too, I'm getting "paypal" emails, I don't think I ever used that address for pay pal, next time I get one I'll post it up. Basicly it says "your account has been flagged, click the link to verify."

I also get "Weekly FDA notices" and crazy emails from "The wife and familly of an ousted Nigerian military leader" they want me to "hold some money for them before the gov seizes it". Crazy.

Don't open anything you're not expecting...just like at your real mail box.
