Wondering if this is real?
Edited by Phil-101 on Aug 13, 2014 at 9:22:32 PM

I received this E-Mail: I do not know why!  I have not sent anything that would cause me to get this. I fear that this is a crook or a mistake.  Does any one know if this is real?

Hello @downtown90 

 

No, it's definitely not real or legitimate. Ignore it, or even better, add it to your block list.
