This is because the email is a scam that has links that go to phishing or fake websites that steal account, personal and financial information.

    I just got 2 of these emails from the same Amphitheatre Parkway location. Fortunately the From address was questionable. One from what looks like an adserver and the other from Excite, which I think handles job searches. I forwarded the emails to my cable provider.

    Thank you,

    I believe this is a scam. Am I correct? Nexicom is a company in Canada. I am not in Canada.
