    you know the paper HST company.

    it is a virus..there is no subject line..(that is usually a heads up) just a link you should "NOT" click on!

    It's scary when you discover one of those, especially if you discover it has come from your computer and you don't know why or how.

    Don't know what to think about the reply you received. Let me see, your company allowed my email address to be spread to who knows where!!! Will make sure i never go to that website.

    it wasn't spread anywhere, but to you,if your on the mailing list.. ONLY MY email address was shown.
    they must need a better anti virus for the email program. ( i didn't know there was still AOL)
    Or someone on their staff opened a link that let it in.
    they are a reputable company.
