Email scam

FYI, I got an email from "" saying that the $2249.99 Tv that I ordered on my credit card can now be tracked on line. There was a link that said Conformation file that was ZIPPED. I did not open it. I called Best buy and asked them about it and they said to delet it that it was a virus. And no I did not order a TV. If you see something like this, just delet it.

geesh!... it's bad enough to click a link in an infected e-mail...I could only imagine what unzipping a file would do.


The weather is here.... wish you were beautiful

Imagine my disappointment if i were here to make you happy
