Scam emails.


Recommended Posts

So I've gotten a couple of emails that are trying to scam my money.


I do NOT know how it managed to find my email.


Anyway, I opened them and read it's contents, but I deleted it after that.


I didn't send any information back or anything, but does the act of just reading/opening the email put my computer/information at risk?



This is probably the n00best question of the year.

90% of all emails sent are spam. As long as you didn't open any attachments you should be safe. You're not the only person to get scam emails, look in the lounge for my "Egg Card has been suspended" thread ;)


As for getting your address, they use software to predict addresses and send out thousands and thousands to randomly created email addresses, of which some time they get a hit.
