    Sad that some people have nothing better to do than send those. But it was on our news one day that they are indeed a spam and can really put a hurtin on your computer. Delete anything you don't know.

    Put the addy on your blocked sender list and you won't get them any longer. They'll be stopped by your ISP. Simple really.

    I get the same emails too - they are usually in my spam list - I just delete them - if I really have a package - I know about it and where its coming from (tracking #)

    I just got a legitimate looking email from citbank/citcards saying I had a balance of 200.51 on a card ending 7446. I don't have a card that ends with those 4 digits so I called the CustServ number at Citibank. They checked (via my ssn) and said I had no credit card accounts open at all. So, I forwarded the email to the spoof@citibank.com address and spam@uce.gov (FTC reporting). Now, I've got to go check my credit report. You'd think that these people could get caught, but noooooo. Too many of them and they all have psuedonyms, avatars, and don't really "exist". What a weird age we live in!

    SCAM SCAM SCAM--open it and you are hacked, then they send emails to ALL you contacts--your ISP can and WILL shut you down.
    SUPERAntiSpyware keeps you protects, and it is free--much better than being shut down and computer in the shop for days, and all your friends and forums mad at you!

    I've been seeing stuff on FB saying that someone is looking for me. Of course you immediately say "hmmmm wonder who that could be" but luckily I didn't fall for them! I'm in contact with all the people I want to be in contact with! AND you get all these sites that say "free' then there's all these hoops you have to jump thru...what's with that?
