Nasty intent and nasty action

A friend and I both Recd email saying things like my partner is “a caged bird” and "in jail". I should let them “OUT” “FREE” to love someone else if they don’t love me. I don’t have a partner (yet!) but I still clicked on

“SEE WHY NOW” My friend didn’t have this

and I instantly copped a load of gay porn and then a scary message “if you try to remove this software you could be reported for storing illegal pornography”

email came from - guylink – Tom at G L. I will let you know how I get on cleaning my software.

“if you try to remove this software you could be reported for storing illegal pornography”

Remove the "software" its just a scare tactic for unsuspecting visitors. also i would add the software to your block tools should you have any.

First of all for your own good. Please NEVER open any unsolicited e-mails. If they are not from a contact: friend, family member, etc. It is only asking for trouble. It is a good way to get infected with viruses. And at the very least, once the spammer is aware that they have found a legit e-mail address. You could be inundated with tons of spam. So delete them. And empty the trash. Immediatly.

I agree with LoLucky. It is most likely a scam. If they are still in your e-mail. And you have the options to report as spam and put a block on them, do so.


You also should do some security scanning of your systems. As a precautionary measure.
