Sorry to break the rules but I think this is soemthing that all should be
I have been doing genealogy work on several families in my husband and my
Today I recieved five diffrent emails with Re: then surnames that I had been
researching, all with no message but a huge attachement I was smart enough
not to open them but think that you should be aware of this.
I tried to email all of them back but they all came back.
SO IF YOU GET AN EMAIL ON SURNAMES THAT HAS NO MESSAGE ON EMAIL JUST AN
ATTACHEMENT EITHER EMAIL THE PERSON IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHO THEY ARE OR
DELETE THE MESSAGE BUT PLEASE BE CAREFUL.
That is last thing. Sorry to break rules but this kinda pertained to
genealogy since it is someone using surnames etc to spread viruses-I have
talked to many many people all getting same thing from same addresses...
PS EMAIL ME PERSONNALY IF YOU HAVE ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS SO NOONE GETS IN
