    There is a Nigerian Scam that is posing as the FBI Director. Don't answer that one.

    and this one I have gotten about 4 times from different Cos. If you open the zip or pdf, I bet you have problems. Not a bad ploy. "WTF? She ordered what?"

    Within the past few weeks, I've gotten a few of those also.

    I have people say "didn't you get my email?" Truth is, I probably didn't recognize the name so I deleted it without even looking.

    I avoid a lot of this by using one email account for checking offers and such garbage. I use another for my friends only. No ads, offers or anything gets through that one as I don't use it for anything other than basic email. 'I don't like spam!' :D
