unusual email to me

(1/2) > >>

Keith Broughton:
I just received an email asking how it's going and noting I have not been on PSW for some time now.
Odd, considering I'm on every day!
So my first thought is phishing scam as there was a link to log on to PSW.
It came from this email addy...

I got the same email... confirmed email lists are a sellable asset.

=== update
I opened it and clicked on unsubscribe. that screen looked normal... I just looked at the email raw source and didn't see any funny business there.

That would be a clever hack but IMO unlikely... indeed they don't appear to have a good handle on forum member activity.

Our rule here is that if it looks even slightly fishy, delete and never open an attachment you're not expecting. Those hackers have been keeping super busy and they always seem to start with a friendly looking email.

Joris Jans2:
yup, i've got it also.
looks fishy

MikeHarris:
guess im un-worthy
