Thank you for the warning I will forward it to my friends and family.

Personally I don't open attachments from anyone I don't know is planing on sending to me. There is usually text that is familiar not "computer generated" in it.

I receive something similar or the same the other day. It claimed to be from CNN and stated something like...."this is not known yet but we are letting you know blah blah...see attachment"! So I am thinking yeah CNN are really going to let me know first! I guess someone fell for it! Bit like the emails I get telling me I can have a share of 30m USD because it is stuck in an account in Nigeria and a foreigner is needed to assist in getting it moved.

Thanks for the memo. Smile
But this e-mail its self is a little odd. I got an e-mail about a month or two ago that was exactly the same from the part that says, "PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AND
CONTACTS: ; ", and down.
Also, why would we need to turn our computers off, if we see this e-mail? It can't to anything to our computers if we don't open the attachment.
But still, thanks for the info, just letting ya'll know that it may not be incredibly valid.
