    Yup, I have recieved 3 very weird emails, one said:

    "Dear mom,


    They;ll send your tablets without a doctor's
    visit for less than half the usual money."

    and thier was an attachment

    the second and third emails only said thier was an attachment, and in the subject it said: "This might grab your attention".

    I deleted both of them, cant be too safe these days.
