I have just received an email from a member of shtyle.fm.

It says:

"jfcrinquand sends a teddy‏

To accept this gift please click the following link:
Note I have removed the link

Message :

Enjoy your gift,
Shtyle.fm"

I have had a look on Google and it appears to be a social networking site. There are complaints about the site sending unsolicited emails to people. :bangbang:

Does anyone have any further info on this site?

Please note that we have not clicked on the link - at least I am learning something from SWI!!! :D

Cheers

A quick look in Google suggests that they are SPAMmers and identity thieves... It appears that they will steal your address book and SPAM all of your friends... I suggest nuking that email immediately and notifying your friends -- it is likely that one of them bit on the offer and that is how they got your email address... It also seems likely you will now be getting a wave of additional SPAM in your inbox...

Many thanks Budfred,

Consider the email nuked and sent into oblivion. I hope that there will be no spam. Up to now I have been very diligent and almost spam free. :cool:
