Default Possible SPAM received today

Every once in a while I do check my email.
I found a message that just did not seem right.

It stated that I had a voice message, and I should click on a box to hear it.

After looking at the full header, I saw that the origination was in Italy.
And clicking the box would have opened a link to a suspicious site.

Just sayin.........

Well, it's not all spam. I received an email from a prince in Nigeria who is going to send me $4,238,981 and all I have to do is send him $500, my social security number and my bank account number.

This is the type of e-mail I received.
On a Win 7, but not using OutLook.

You are getting ripped off. He offered me $787,259,511 and only wanted $350 plus my ssn.

I have recently gotten notices of packages that Fedex and UPS could not deliver. I was supposed to download a label. Yeah sure. I reported the first couple to both Fedex and UPS. Definitely phishing. and they are not to happy as they look pretty official. Take a good look at the email source and call the shipper. One wanted the email forwarded to them.
