I am a second, or a junior, or whatever you want to call it. If you know me personally, you know that my name is not a very popular one. I know this, so I don’t expect to run into many people (no one actually) with my name.
I also try to be very smart when dealing with the internet. One thing I don’t do is open or answer emails from people I’m not expecting an email from. If it looks suspicious, I don’t open it. It goes straight into the trash.
Occasionally, I receive an email that is addressed from me. Immediately I think I’m going to throw it into the trash. Obviously, someone is spoofing my name and email and attempting to get some information from me. Then I realize, there is at least one other person with my name….My Dad. LOL.
It’s sad because it gets me every time. Arrgh…it’s not spam!!!
