Default WARNING private message in e-mail



If you receive an e-mail indicating PRIVATE MESSAGE.

Do not open it.

It will send out a message to all of your contacts and will spread from there.

I received one from a trustworthy MLU source, now all of my contacts have been send the same message.

Collecting data on the WW2 Canadian jeep and trailer.
Serial, WD Numbers etc.

Eric, thanks for the heads-up.

I did receive an email notice of a "private message" from cmp magazine but fortunately saw your warning first.

Anytime I get an impersonal email with a link, or simply a link, I discard it. Your's today got the same treatment.

I always right click on "properties" to view the full message header. This will show a lot of info and let you decide if it is a good or bad message.

Hi All:

Please be aware that I inadvertently opened just the email portion of such a PM a few minutes ago. Clicked to open the wrong email out of a series of them.

It had no attachments or files to open and I deleted it as soon as I saw what it was. Hopefully it will not be one of those that sends a flood of similar messages out to the membership.

If so, I sincerely apologize, it was an honest keystroke error.
