    Lately I've received a number of emails, each with a different name (no one I'd know) implying there was a naked picture of me out on Facebook and wanting me to click on the link (I delete immediately). It's worded in a very familiar, folksy way, "Hey, why did you post this naked photo of yourself on Facebook," or some similar variation.

    Anyone know what these scum are seeking with this latest scam?

    ***

    I got one as I was typing this post. Here it is:

    Excuse me ,


    I have a question- have you seen this picture of yours in attachment?? Three facebook friends sent it to me today... why did you put it online? wouldn't it harm your job? what if parents see it? you must be way cooler than I thought about you man :))))

    I'm guessing the link they want you to click on redirects you to some spam/malware site.

    I have been getting free 'Wal-Mart gift cards" as attachments lately.

    All get deleted.

    :cool:

    I've been getting a couple of emails lately, and I never used to get ANY. One was a bill from verizon wireless (formatted just like they do, I am a customer) for $1200. I deleted it. There has also been a few about bank transfers not going through or something that have an attachment. I've always deleted them of course.
