    Hello,

    Yes, I receive up to 20 of these very annoying emails per day and I just delete them. They keep coming and coming every single day usually overnight but sometimes during the day. The content is the same each time with a different email address.

    I contacted IT support and there was not much they could do. I also contacted the FBI and our Australian internet scam authorities. All I can say is it is a scam you can see right through but very time consuming to rid your computer of these emails every day. I think eventually the FBI will stop this.

    I realised what this scam email was straight away and set the emails to block sender but this does not work is there any other way to block these e mails on my pc thanks.

    delete


    • Posted: Jan 16, 2017 at 9:39 AM by info

      Blocking the sender will not work because the scammers change the "from" address the emails are coming from.

      Try flagging the emails as spam or junk; the spam filter will block the emails based on content.

        Can you help me please. These emails are coming in from my own email address into my own inbox! How do I stop them using my email address as my box does not appear to be hacked?

        delete


        • Posted: Jan 23, 2017 at 5:13 AM by info

          Your email address has not been hacked. What the scammers or spammers are doing is spoofing your email address.

          Try flagging the emails as spam,and let your spam filter send them to your spam or junk folder.

    I accidentally clicked on the message and it opened up, but I never went to another site or followed any instruction, actually I closed up the window inmediately, I wonder if that way can I be affected?

      No. Not unless you were taken to a phishing website and entered your information, or download and install a malicious app.
