It will come from someone you know and who has you on their “contacts”.

Open it and you will unwittingly send it to everyoneon YOUR contacts.

Thanks for the heads up. Is this a FReepmail thing, or do you mean regular ol’ email accounts?

I rarely use email and even then don’t open 90% of it.

Opening the email does it or opening an attachment/link within the email?

That nasty little roll mail came to me and I used ‘view source’ before opening it. The virus code was plain as day so I didn’t open it. I have since received three more of the same virus, from folks I have corresponded with in the past. I consider this just another of the ‘chain mail’ games coders and hackers play to see how quickly their grabage gets back around to them from all over the world. I wish I knew how to reverse their crap and infect their hard drives with a ‘kill the hard drive’ virus, I’d be tempted to use it!

It opens a link to a seemingly innoucous article about “earn money on the internet working from home”.

sheesh, I use “hey” as a subject line as do my friends. How can you tell if it’s bogus or not?

“Your Email have been”

“£750,000.00 Pounds”

“Payment Officer : Mrs. Shannon Maris ... You are to provide him...”

Not a comprehensive list, just a few of my favourites.
