I have received this a couple of times on this board and started to open it and then realized it was probably a scam and would generate lots of junk mail. I opened one a couple of years ago and it is hard to get rid of all the junk mail they generate. Thanks PatriceJ for the heads up.

It is also a part of the Boards ads today! I hate these ads but do know that the Board needs the advertisements to cover the cost of running it. Just yesterday I had Babylon change my front page with theirs. I spent all day tryingto get rid of it. Yes, verytrue these ads can cause a lot of problems for PC users.

Since I refuse to shop at WalMart, it's not a problem for me ... but then, I expect most ads online to be scammy anyway, and don't open ANYTHING unless I know for sure who sent it. I got 'gifted' once with a virus and that was enough.

Thanks for heads up. I have seen these in my private email at times, I always mark them as spam and do not open.
