    I received this email yesterday allegedly from my ex husband. I opened the attachment which appears to be about making money. I tried to send an email back but it wasn't his e mail address.

    I have since confirmed it wasn't sent from him. Can you advise if I put myself at risk by opening the link?

    Thank you

    This is the e mail and link
    Good afternoon Anne

      Just visting the link will not put your computer or yourself at risk. But, you put yourself at risk if you visit the link, download and install malicious apps or software, or submit your personal or financial information on the website that you are taken to.
