    I always get a zip file to click (which I never do), but am tempted to reply with a box of cornflakes and a dig to the chin :laugh:

    Getting more and more common nowadays, i had 2 emails today, bank rebates, sent from 2 different email addresses and also 2 different amounts.

    Plus you get the gimps who claim there from Microsoft and say their server detects that your computer is sending out viruses.

    never open zip files from an email address you dont know, most contain malware that encrypts your data

    And the Paypal scam emails. I had 2 last week. Always a dead giveaway when they don't leave a space after a full stop.

    Hey Tuffers I've been getting them.
    Parcels being delivered when I ain't ordered nothing. Even tell me the courier company who's delivering it. Must admit I do just delete em. I also get a zip file.

    Another scam going around at the moment is where the fkers drop a 'you have a parcel' leaflet through your door, and when you call the number to re arrange delivery, you instantly get charged £120 quid.

    You probably already have virus/malware or a vulnerability in the os and that is why bots are sending you them as they target vulnerable devices.
