I received this in my Junk E-Mail box. All other correspondence from Panda is sent/placed into my Inbox. Is this anything to be concerned about?
Or am I just being paranoid? lol
It is the "attachment" that bothers me.

The Email is probably NOT from Panda, and the attachment contains a virus. Delete the Email.

Thanks so much pacman_123 and jg. :thumbsup:

I suspected as much. Just wanted a bit of feedback. Maybe others will see this thread and it will help to prevent an infection for them.
