Recently got some spam Emails.. one proclaiming to be from the FBI, notifying of a viral or hacking possibility.
DON'T OPEN such Emails!! You could invite a hacker or hijacker into your system!

Any Emails you get that are not from persons or a business you know, delete them without opening! "Curiosity killed the cat" is a truism.
If your mail service has the feature to "view header", that may be a safe option to get information for reporting to www.ic3.gov/ or other agency so the offender can be prosecuted.

Some other warnings.. with the coming Holiday season..
Many charities that are legitimate may Email you for donations.. but best to deal with them on their authentic Web site.. not via an Email plea! There are all too many scammers that make an Email look authentic, yet is fraudulent.
Any time you get a notice from your bank or credit organization, contact them directly.. not via that Email! Best not to open it!
Same warning about Emails proclaiming you winning a Lotto or an inheritance. Trash that Email.

Be safe, not 'phished'.

Here is another incident.. from PCH (Publisher's Clearing House)..
They will not randomly award anyone a prize or cash. You must register for any contest or award! If you get an Email claiming to be from PCH, don't open it.. it may infect your computer!
